Patients with metastatic breast cancer and a chronic health condition have poorer outcomes

The death rate for women with metastatic breast cancer is linked to the number of chronic health conditions they have, according to a study by the University of Michigan in partnership with the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research & Evaluation.

Nanomedicine targeting lymph nodes may be key to triple negative breast cancer treatment

In mice, nanomedicine can remodel the immune microenvironment in lymph node and tumor tissue for long-term remission and lung tumor elimination in this form of metastasized breast cancer.

Research shows side effects of radiation therapy are reduced when computer optimizes treatment

When a computer optimized the treatment plan for radiation therapy that was broken into multiple segments, known as inverse-planned, intensity-modulated radiotherapy, or IMRT, breast cancer patients were in less pain and experienced less skin irritation than when CT scans were used to deliver three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy, also know as 3DCRT.
