Study sheds light on regulation of breast cancer initiation

Tumor cells are characterized by high degree of heterogeneity and among them, tumor-initiating cells (TICs), sometimes also called cancer stem-like cells, are considered as the culprits of cancer development and progression, ...

Cancer cells alter protein production machinery to hasten metastasis

Hormone receptor-positive breast cancer can spread throughout the body via the bloodstream as circulating tumor cells, or CTCs, which eventually reach distal (remote) body sites to form metastatic tumors. An increase in ribosomes, ...

In brief: Choice of anesthesia may affect breast cancer metastases

A new study led by Stony Brook University Cancer Center researchers to be published in Nature Communications suggests that the choice of anesthesia may change the metastatic process of breast cancer by affecting the cytokine ...

Refining breast cancer classification by multiplexed imaging

An imaging approach developed at UZH enables the study of breast cancer tissue in greater detail. It uses 35 biomarkers to identify the different cell types in breast tumors and its surrounding area compared to the current ...
