GUMC researchers say flower power may reduce resistance to breast cancer drug tamoxifen

e pro-death signals."

Still, as much as this study advances the understanding of tamoxifen resistance, there is much that is not understood, he adds. "We don't know when NF- κB becomes over-expressed in the transformation of tamoxifen-sensitive to a tamoxifen-resistant breast cancer cells, and we don't know of other adaptations the cell may have made," he says. "It is probably fair to say this is a hideously complex process."

To that end, Clarke cannot predict how many women who try a combination of tamoxifen and parthenolide will benefit. He says the science is much too early to make any recommendations and strongly warns women against adding feverfew supplements to their cancer treatment.

Still, he is hopeful. "Every breast tumor slightly different, but we know many do use NF- κB because excess amounts of the protein are found in these cancers," he says. "That suggests they may be sensitive to targeted approaches that shut down this pro-survival signal."
