Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Plus Mammography Improves Early Diagnosis

2022 08 Feb

Over time, digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) has shown superior sensitivity to conventional 2D digital mammography (DM) in breast cancer detection.

NGS Fails to Improve Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Outcomes

2022 13 Jan

Triple-Negative Breast Cancers (TNBCs) are more challenging to treat because they are not driven by estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, or excess HER2 protein, typical targets for breast cancer therapeutics. Thus no standard therapy has shown proven efficacy for treating this patient population. Furthermore, this group of patients, which account... Read more

Phase 1 Trial for Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Vaccine Begins

2022 11 Jan

Cleveland Clinic researchers along with Anixa Biosciences have initiated a phase 1 clinical trial to test a vaccine intended to prevent triple-negative breast cancers (TNBC). This trial is a first of its kind.   TNBCs are named so because they test negative for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, and excess HER2 protein. Since these are... Read more
