An Initiative to Predict and Prevent Return of Breast Cancer

An Initiative to Predict and Prevent Return of Breast Cancer

According to researcher Sambasivarao Damaraju, from University of Alberta, Canada, if it could actually be predicted that which category of women already suffered from cancer once in their lifetime are at a risk of attaining it further in life; then the physicians and oncologists involved into their treatment would be directed to design an insistent therapy that would surely help in preventing the cancer recurrence.

To find out a possibility, a team of Alberta researchers tested blood samples of women who have ever suffered from breast cancer during years previously. They compared the DNA of samples from women who suffered cancer again with those who were on an improving stage. And as a result they found that with the help of this test they could actually point out the possibility of the cancer returning.

As reported in the journal Public Library of Science ONE, Damaraju said: "Treatment strategies could be tailor-made for these women based on their genetic make-up and how susceptible it makes them to breast cancer recurrence".

The Daily Mail says a kit has been designed in Canada that particularly emphasizes on a category of breast cancer named luminal. This category of breast cancer is known to be one of the most common ones. And there are several provisions to get this cancer diagnosed timely.
