    Linking Cancer to Metabolic Syndrome through it’s Individual Contributory Components: Oxidative Stress and Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone Axis Dysregulation
    Author(s): Chirag H Mandavia*

    Impaired signaling pathways as a result of the increased oxidative stress and general metabolic dysregulation seen in metabolic syndrome may contribute to the increased cancer risk seen in otherwise healthy patients; and subsequent development of progressive cancer characterized by metastatic process. Oxidative stress leading to insulin resistance is a major component of the metabolic syndrome. Dysregulation of the Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone (RAAS) axis is known to be one of the major risk factors for metabolic syndrome; and recently has been shown to play a significant contributory role in the development of oxidative stress; leading up to insulin resistance; in the metabolic syndrome by several different groups. In recent years; angiotensin and aldosterone have emerged as important contributory pathogenic factors for the development of metabolic syndrome; primarily through their .. Read More»
