Would the addition of non-selective beta-blockers to cancer therapy result in better survival?

Animal models are compelling that activating the beta-adrenergic pathway (via stress) results in tumor growth and metastasis. Beta-blockers blunt this effect in animals. All of Us could design a randomized intervention trial to test this potential benefit in humans. An observational approach could also be taken with careful attention to pharmacoepi principles and biases such as confounding by indication.
