Immune Cells can also Increase Breast Cancer’s Risk

Immune Cells can also Increase Breast Cancer’s RiskIn a shocking revelation, it has been unveiled that immune cells that are said to protect body from disease can also change their course and increase risk of cancer.

A study has been carried out by a group of researchers from the University of Adelaide. Study researchers have unveiled that immune cells in breasts can raise risk of breast cancer.

They have carried out studies on mice and then have been able to reach at the above given conclusion.  Study researchers affirmed that immune cells in breasts are known as macrophages. These immune cells change their working during menstrual cycle.

This is the time when they allow cancerous cells to pass through the checking and giving a chance to survive. Associate Professor Wendy Ingman was of the view that it is through the study that they have got to know that during menstrual cycle, immune defenses of women are down.

Now when they have got to know about the risk then their next aim is to come up with a  way by which they will be to curb the risk window. "If we can figure out that then we can actually prevent women from getting breast cancer", said Prof. Ingman.
