London: 20th April 2012
Breast cancer is “not one disease, but 10 different diseases”, according to a ‘landmark study’ that could revolutionize its treatment. An international team of researchers that analysed breast cancers from 2,000 women said the classifications could help improve treatment by tailoring drugs for patients’ exact type of breast cancer and also predict survival more accurately. It will take at least three more years for the findings to be used in hospitals, the researchers said.
