Molecular Switch Is Linked To Common Breast Cancer

Posted in Uncategorized by Patrick Truax on November 9, 2007

Researchers have discovered that a molecular switch in the protein making machinery of cells is linked to one of the most common forms of lethal breast cancer worldwide. The discovery by researchers at NYU School of Medicine could lead to new therapies for the cancer, called locally advanced breast cancer (LABC).

Im a firm believer in the “inhibitor” belief in cancer research. Stopping the proteins that make cancer cells is one idea, in this story, finding out what could change the chemical structure of the switch to render it useless or kill it, is another. Modern Biology has made so many strides in cancer, heres hoping in another 10 to 15 years we will have this licked..

We have posted from Science daily before, they have a very good cancer reasearch section. It is great science digest.
