News about Genetic clues to breast cancer

NEW YORK — Scientists reported Sunday that they have completed a major analysis of the genetics of breast cancer, finding four major classes of the disease. They hope their work will lead to more effective treatments, perhaps with some drugs already in use.

The new finding offers hints that one type of breast cancer might be vulnerable to drugs that already work against ovarian cancer.
The study, published online Sunday by the journal Nature, is the latest example of research into the biological details of tumors, rather than focusing primarily on where cancer arises in the body.
The hope is that such research can reveal cancer's genetic weaknesses for better drug targeting.
"With this study, we're one giant step closer to understanding the genetic origins of the four major subtypes of breast cancer," Dr. Matthew Ellis of the Washington University School of Medicine said in a statement. He is a co-leader of the research.
"Now we can investigate which drugs work best for patients based on the genetic profiles of their tumors," he said.

The researchers analyzed DNA of breast cancer tumors from 825 patients, looking for abnormalities. Altogether, they reported, breast cancers appear to fall into four main classes when viewed in this way.
One class showed similarities to ovarian cancers, suggesting it may be driven by similar biological developments.
"It's clear they are genetically more similar to ovarian tumors than to other breast cancers," Ellis said. "Whether they can be treated the same way is an intriguing possibility that needs to be explored."
The report is the latest from the Cancer Genome Atlas, a federally funded project that has produced similar analyses for brain, colorectal, lung, and ovarian cancers.

I am in remission for a Stage 1 DCIS breast cancer (diagnosis and lumpectomy in 2010). If all goes well with me, I will wind up officially *free and clear* in the year 2015. So far, so good.


Anyhow, though my cancer was not triple negative (estrogen positive with mine), in terms of approach to treatment (surgery, radiation, medication), maybe my medical oncologist will have me try something already in existence (associated with some other type of cancer) other than Arimidex--the hormonal med that I take now.


In the meantime, I'm glad that this advance has happened, and I hope that application of treatments for the triple negatives saves lives.


LADIES: If you haven't been self-examining yourselves monthly (and you know you should), and/or if you've been putting off doing annual mammograms, then git your act together. This kind of stuff ain't to be played with! I got lucky! Mine was discovered through a routine mammo, and due to its location (near the chest wall), as it happens, there was NO WAY that I was going to find it through self exams, so...


Come on, now...


One Love, and PEACE

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
