Drug suppresses spread of breast cancer caused by stem-like cells

Rare stem-like tumor cells play a critical role in the spread of breast cancer, but a vulnerability in the pathway that powers them offers a strategy to target these cells using existing drugs before metastatic disease occurs, report researchers. …read more Source:: http://feeds.sciencedaily.com

Using 3D cell cultures to fight anti-cancer therapy resistance

An international research team has developed 3D cell cultures in which genes can be specifically modified. They allow the study of genes that may cause therapy resistance in breast cancer. This knowledge may further improve the use of targeted anti-cancer drugs. …read more Source:: http://feeds.sciencedaily.com

For women with genetic risk, bi-annual MRI beats mammograms

Intensive surveillance including a dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) exam every six months was far more effective in detecting breast cancer in younger women with a high-risk genetic profile than an annual mammogram. DCE-MRI every six months performed well for early detection of invasive breast cancer in high-risk women. …read more Source:: http://feeds.sciencedaily.com

Simple blood test may predict recurrence of breast cancer

Late recurrence five+ years after surgery accounts for at least half of all breast cancer recurrences. There are no tests that identify who is at highest risk. Researchers studied a blood test for circulating tumor cells, finding that in women cancer-free five after diagnosis, 5% had a positive test, which was associated with a 35%
