Oncotarget Publishes New Paper On Aggressive Form Of Breast Cancer

A particularly aggressive form of breast cancer is known as triple negative breast cancer. The journal Oncotarget recently published a research paper detailing how it can respond to hormone therapy when it occurs that the cell has an estrogen receptor beta protein. The findings of this study also say that there are more molecules that were uncovered in the study that could be targeted by new breast cancer drugs in order to cure this disease.

This type of breast cancer occurs in about 15% of those women who have been diagnosed with this disease. One of the author of the study, Dr. Hawse, said that the study was preliminary. He said that both cellular and animal models would need to be further researched prior to a clinical trial being performed. He said that this line of thought would be explored further by his team of researchers. Check Oncotarget at scimagojr.com
