Potential Gene therapy for breast cancer treatment

Scientists have discovered two genes that identify which breast cancer cells respond to chemotherapy treatment and which do not.

The findings by researchers at Aberdeen University in the UK are expected to help develop more tailored treatments for sufferers of breast cancer. The research team looked for a specific genetic make-up in breast cancer cells that did not respond to the chemotherapy drug docetaxel.

Some more details are available here with The Telegraph.
