Could blocking a testosterone receptor lead to a new way of treating an aggressive form of breast cancer? Researchers at Mayo Clinic in Arizona and The Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) are exploring this very question.
Preliminary results of the Mayo Clinic-TGen collaborative study show that the testosterone receptor may be a potential target to attack in treating triple negative breast cancer (TNBC).
TNBC is highly aggressive and affects approximately 10 to 20 percent of breast cancer patients. The disease is characterized by larger, faster-growing tumors than other types of breast cancer and has limited treatment options.
Surgical oncologist and lead researcher Barbara Pockaj, M.D., is presenting these results today at the 65th annual Society of Surgical Oncology conference in Orlando, Fla.
