Latest Mammary gland Stories
Researchers have found that hormones produced during pregnancy induce a protein that directly inhibits the growth of breast cancer.
A powerful new breast cancer treatment could result from packaging one of the newer drugs that inhibits cancer's hallmark wild growth with another that blocks a primordial survival technique in which the cancer cell eats part of itself, researchers say.
Results of transgenic mouse study directly applicable to human breast cancer tumor study.
Researchers at The Wistar Institute have identified a key gene (KLF17) involved in the spread of breast cancer throughout the body.
Social environment can play an important role in the biology of disease, including breast cancer, and lead to significant differences in health outcome, according to results of a study published in Cancer Prevention Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.
Scientists at Michigan State University have found exposure to the hormone progesterone activates genes that trigger inflammation in the mammary gland.
How you eat may be just as important as how much you eat, if mice studies are any clue. Cancer researchers have long studied the impact of diet on breast cancer, but results to date have been mixed.
A protein known to be overly active in breast cancer can exist in a form that seems to change the structural composition of mammary tissue, potentially making it more conducive to tumor progression, say researchers from the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC).
Dioxin exposure during pregnancy can harm fast-changing breast tissue cells and that may cause some women to have trouble breast feeding, U.S. researchers said. Corresponding author B.
A newly discovered gene known as DEAR1 is mutated in breast cancer and is an independent predictor of local recurrence-free survival in early-onset breast cancer, a research team headed by scientists at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center reports in the journal PLoS Medicine.
The Common House Mouse (Mus musculus), is the most numerous species of the genus Mus. It is the most common and populous mammalian species on earth, besides humans. House mice almost always live in close proximity to humans. Laboratory mice belong to strains of house mice and are some of the most important model organisms in biology and medicine. They are by far the most commonly used laboratory mammal. House mice are light brown to black, with short hair and a light belly. The ears and...
