Researchers find link between breast cancer and two gene mutations

(Springer) Individuals with Lynch syndrome, a genetic condition that has long been known to carry dramatically increased risk of colorectal cancer and uterine cancer, now also have an increased risk of breast cancer. This is the conclusion of a study in the journal Genetics in Medicine which is published by Springer Nature.

Whole-population testing for breast and ovarian cancer gene mutations is cost effective

(Queen Mary University of London) Screening the entire population for breast and ovarian cancer gene mutations, as opposed to just those at high-risk of carrying this mutation, is cost effective and could prevent more ovarian and breast cancers than the current clinical approach, according to research published today in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

New way to target the growth of breast cancer cells

Researchers have found a new way of halting the growth of breast cancer cells. The researchers explored a new way to starve cancer cells from their molecular energy source. They hope that their discoveries can be further developed into a new way of treating breast cancer, and possibly other types of cancer.

'Breakthrough' breast cancer drug thwarted by chemical found in bread

A chemical found in bread and a range of other common foods can thwart treatment for breast cancer, scientists have warned. New research suggested the benefits of the “breakthrough” new drug palbociclib, which is given to women with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer, was effectively reversed by xenoestrogens.
