Abdominal obesity induces significant changes in the biological properties of adipose stem cells, enhancing ER+/PR+ breast cancer tumorigenesis.
Baroness Morgan reflects upon the recently published Gap Analysis paper, and highlights a future action plan to tackle the critical gaps in breast cancer research.
Current knowledge 'gaps' in the understanding of breast cancer are examined, and research should focus on these to improve future clinical care.
Pharmacologic reversal of excessive PKD1 methylation in breast cancer cells was found to block tumor spread and metastasis in a mouse model
Polymorphisms found in some core circadian pathway genes have been associated with breast cancer risk in nurses who worked three or more consecutive night shifts.
