The beta-blocker carvedilol could reduce the progression of breast cancer, increasing the odds of surviving the cancer, according to a study by Melbourne’s Monash University.

In collaboration with a team from the Cancer Registry of Norway, the Monash researchers investigated the effects of carvedilol in more than 4000 breast cancer patients.
