- A new discovery by Jean Zhao, PhD, and colleagues may help physicians predict which tumors are likely to become resistant to a given drug. In the report, published by Nature Medicine, researchers described how they created a genetically engineered mouse model of human breast cancer in which the most frequently occurring breast cancer oncogene, PIK3CA, could be turned on and off.

- Although it sounds like a case of gender confusion on a molecular scale, the male hormone androgen spurs the growth of some breast tumors in women. In a new study, scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute provide the first details of the cancer cell machinery that carries out the hormone’s relentless growth orders.

- The committee will help the CDC develop evidence-based approaches to advance the understanding and awareness of breast cancer among young women.
- Younger women are more likely to be diagnosed with later-stage breast
cancer, and treatment may affect fertility. Dana-Farber's specialized
program addresses the unique needs of these patients.
