Research Worth Watching: New Treatments for Brain Metastases

Breast cancer becomes deadly when it metastasizes—spreads to other parts of the body. For decades, we’ve been focused on developing treatments that will keep early-stage breast cancer from recurring. Now, researchers are spending more time studying how and where cancer cells spreads, with the goal of developing treatments that may cure, or at least stabilize, metastatic breast cancer

Research Worth Watching: The 9th International Symposium on the Breast

It is hard for me to believe that it has been almost two weeks since our 9th International Symposium! We first hosted this conference in 1999 and, while each year has been special, I think this year’s meeting, “Exploring the Human Breast: Employing New Technology,” was one of the best yet!

Research Worth Watching: What Type of Breast Cancer Do You Have? The Answer May Change Over Time

To determine what type of breast cancer you have and how it should be treated, your tumor is tested to see if it has hormone receptors (ER and PR positive or negative) and if it overproduces the HER2 protein (HER2 positive or negative).

Research Worth Watching - Precision Medicine and Collateral Damage

Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation is actively preparing for our Metastatic Breast Cancer Collateral Damage Project Two-Day Think Tank, which is taking place November 10-11. At the Think Tank, we will present the data we have collected on the collateral damage associated with metastatic breast cancer and its treatments. We will also discuss and develop recommendations that can be implemented within our current healthcare system to improve the lives of those living with metastatic disease. 

Research Worth Watching: the Precision Medicine Project

Usually I use this space to tell you about some new molecular finding that changes the way we think about breast cancer. But after two trips to the East Coast this month to talk about the President’s Precision Medicine Project, I thought I should bring you up to date on what this is and what it might mean for all of us.
