Fight breast cancer with endosialin

Fight breast cancer with endosialinLondon [England], Sept. 16 : A recent study suggests that targeting a specific blood vessel molecule may help to prevent the deadly spread of breast cancer.

Scientists may have uncovered 'fountain of youth' while researching breast cancer

Scientists may have uncovered 'fountain of youth' while researching breast cancerWashington, Apr.9 - Researchers recently stumbled upon the " fountain of youth" while conducting the breast cancer research.

It was found in the mammary glands of genetically modified mice. A research team led by Professor Rama Khokha has found that when two factors that control tissue development are removed, people could avoid the impact of aging.


'Off-switch' for aggressive breast cancers discovered

'Off-switch' for aggressive breast cancers discoveredWashington, Mar 29 - A team of researchers has found the switch that might tame the most aggressive of breast cancers.

Researchers from Garvan Institute of Medical Research have found that so-called 'triple-negative breast cancers' are two distinct diseases that likely originate from different cell types. This helps explain why survival prospects for women with the diagnosis tend to be either very good or very bad.
