Genome breakthrough allows scientists to identify and profile tumor cells from very small samples
Researchers have developed a powerful new technique for analyzing the genome of single tumor cells. The breakthrough allows them to study in fine detail the biology of how tumors develop.

S. Loi, BE
Estrogen receptor status of HER2+ breast cancer correlates with response to anti-HER therapies
An international team of researchers has discovered molecular evidence that may explain why some women with HER2 over-expressing breast cancer do not respond to drugs designed to target this important molecule.

B. Haine-Kains, USA
Simple gene test identifies clinically important sub-types of breast cancer
A simple genetic test that uses just three genes is among the most effective means of classifying breast cancer into sub-types.

A. Giordano, USA
Survival in metastatic breast cancer directly linked to circulating tumor cells
A new study of metastatic breast cancer shows that the number of circulating tumor cells patients have in their blood directly correlates with the length of their survival.
