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.

    AIDs and Cancer have so many people, companies, and Universities fighting them, I believe they will both be eradicated around the same time..

    There’s just one thing…breast cancer isn’t something you can “choose” to risk. As long as people (gay and straight alike) are having unprotected, promiscuous sex, AIDS will continue to win the battle. But yes, I believe there are tremendous strides being taken against cancer in general, and especially breast cancer. Imagine…if breast cancer comes about by a molecular switch, it would be logical that all cancers have some sort of microscopic footprint as well. The discovery of one could mean the eradication of all.
