New top publication from OnkPat regarding breast cancer
Johan Hartman and co-workers have recently published their work on the most aggressive breast cancer cells, cancer stem cells, in Journal of the National Cancer Institute. They have found that cancer stem cells are dependent on a certain estrogen receptor to survive. This receptor could therefore be used as a new target for breast cancer treatment.
