  • Exploiting the reversibility of epigenetic mutations

    Rots and colleagues describe aberrant DNA methylation and histone modifications as two important classes of epigenetic mutations in breast cancer and review the preclinical and clinical epigenetic-based therapies currently being explored.

  • Defining breast cancer subtypes

    An updated pathological definition of breast cancer molecular subtypes is proposed that may maximise the number of patients classifiable as “Luminal-A like” and decrease the number for whom cytotoxic therapy is generally recommended.

  • Novel biomarker panel for breast cancer

    Five serum proteins can distinguish between serum from women with breast cancer and healthy control subjects with high sensitivity and specificity and can significantly predict recurrence-free survival in women with estrogen receptor negative tumors.

  • Genomic analysis of mouse breast cancer models

    A novel database of 1,172 mouse mammary tumor samples from 26 different major oncogenic mouse mammary tumor models reveals molecular features of mouse models and their relationships to human breast cancer.

  • Genetic variation at CYP3A

    rs10235235, which maps to the CYP3A locus, is the first single nucleotide polymorphism to be associated with both breast cancer risk and age at menarche, likely mediated via an effect on circulating hormone levels.

  • Breast cancer intra-tumor heterogeneity

    Reis-Filho and colleagues review the models that explain tumor heterogeneity, the causes of intra-tumor genetic diversity and their impact on our understanding, assessment and management of breast cancer.
