Study Reveals Three Genes Associated with Breast Cancer
A commendable team effort of researchers from the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research, London, is finally showing results. As per reports, funded by the Mary-Jean Mitchell Green Foundation, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the NHS, a study has found three genes, C6ORF96, C6ORF97 and C6ORF211, related with the most common form of breast cancer.
Moreover, medical experts have many a times cited that hormone estrogen stimulates the growth of breast cancer, but not much has been done so far.
If statistics from the American Cancer Society are to be believed, almost 1.3 million women will be affected with breast cancer annually worldwide and about 465,000 will lose their lives from the disease.
Responding to the study, Dr. Anita Dunbier, from the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Centre at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in London, claimed,” We now have to look further at how these genes work, but the discovery could lead to possible new therapies that will benefit women with breast cancer in the future”.
Meanwhile, the team led by Professor Mitch Dowsett at the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Centre at the ICR, asserted that team is probing the underlying theory further so that conclusive evidence can be produced to substantiate the preliminary findings.
