Purified cancer exosome samples

Help researchers study the role of exosomes in cancer development and metastasis

Vector network analysers for breast cancer screening research

Rohde and Schwarz has supplied high speed vector network analysers to Bristol University spin-out Micrima for the clinical trials

Switching drugs improves breast cancer patient survival rates

Trial examined the long-term effectiveness of switching to exemestane after two to three years of tamoxifen

First UK data on breast cancers that occur between screenings

Analysis led by The Institute of Cancer Research found 2.91 per 1,000 women who had a negative screen were diagnosed with breast cancer before their next screen was due

Supplements may reduce breast cancer risk

Vitamins and calcium supplements appear to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Calcium supplements are acting to enhance DNA repair capacity, a complex biological process involving more than 200 proteins that, if disrupted, can lead to cancer.

Hormone sensitivity of breast stem cells

Researchers have discovered that breast stem cells are exquisitely sensitive to the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, a finding that opens the way for the development of new preventions and treatments for breast cancer.

Oestrogen and breast cancer

A new study is providing insight into how oestrogen fuels many breast cancers, and researchers say the findings could lead to new cancer-fighting drugs.

Spices halt growth of breast stem cells

A new study finds that compounds derived from the spices turmeric and pepper could help prevent breast cancer by limiting the growth of stem cells.

Pomegranates may prevent breast cancer

Eating fruit, such as pomegranates, that contain anti-aromatase phytochemicals reduces the incidence of hormone-dependent breast cancer, according to results of a study.

Genes found linked to breast cancer drug resistance

Researchers have discovered a gene activity signature that predicts a high risk of cancer recurrence in certain breast tumours that have been treated with commonly used chemotherapy drugs.

Simple blood test could reduce repeat breast MRI scans

A simple blood test corresponding to the follicular phase (days 3-14) of a normal menstrual cycle can aid in optimal scheduling of breast MRI exams in premenopausal women with irregular cycles.

New Chemo Cocktail Blocks Breast Cancer

A researcher from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has found a way to strengthen the breast's "fence" to prevent cancer from metastasizing.

Genetics: Stem cells lead to breast cancer

Scientists have found that a population of breast cells called luminal progenitor cells are likely to be responsible for breast cancers that develop in women carrying mutations in the gene BRCA1.

Pharmacology target for breast cancer

New research has uncovered the biological effects of a novel membrane estrogen receptor, a finding that has potential implications for hormonal therapy for breast cancer.

Prototype Breast Cancer Imaging System

A prototype breast imaging system combining positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging technologies could greatly improve breast cancer imaging capabilities, according to researchers.

Genetics used to fight aggressive breast cancer

A low cellular level of a tiny fragment of RNA appears to increase the spread of breast cancer in mouse models of the disease, according to researchers at Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research.

Assessing breast cancer treatment

Non-invasive imaging can measure how well patients with breast cancer respond to standard aromatase inhibitor therapy after only two weeks.

3T MRI detects early breast cancer

3T MRI, a powerful tool for evaluating patients with a high risk of having breast cancer, can detect a significant number of lesions not found on mammography and sonography.

Walnuts may prevent breast cancer

Walnut consumption may provide the body with essential omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and phytosterols that reduce the risk of breast cancer, according to a recent study.

Diagnosing breast cancer

Radiologists have developed a computer based model that aids them in discriminating between benign and malignant breast lesions, according to a recent study.
