Abstract

Epidemiologic studies have contributed importantly to current knowledge of environmental and genetic risk factors for breast cancer. Worldwide, breast cancer is an important cause of human suffering and premature mortality among women. In the United States, breast cancer accounts for mo...read more

Cancer Disparities

Cancer disparities refers to differences in cancer outcomes (e.g., number of cancer cases, related health complications) across population groups.

DNA Repair

DNA repair is critical to prevent detrimental mutations and maintain genomic stability that can otherwise lead to disease and disability. There are a number of different mechanisms of repair including base excision repair, direct repair, nucleotide excision repair and double-strand break repair. Discover the latest research on DNA repair here.

Hormone-Related Cancers

This feed focuses on hormone-related cancers including cancer of the breast, endometrium, ovary, prostate, testis, thyroid, and bone, all of which share unique mechanisms of carcinogenesis. Here is the latest research.

Neurocutaneous Syndromes

Neurocutaneous syndromes include congenital disorders involving tumor growth in the brain, spinal cord, organs, skin, and bones. These syndromes include tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, and Sturge-Weber disease. Find the latest research on neurocutaneous syndromes here.

Breast Cancer: Risk Factors

Breast cancer is a multifactorial disease that is influenced by both environmental and genetic factors. Discover the latest research on the environmental and genetic risk factors for breast cancer here.

Ataxia telangiectasia

Ataxia telangiectasia is a rare neurodegenerative diseases caused by defects in the ATM gene, which is involved in DNA damage recognition and repair pathways. Here is the latest research on this autosomal recessive disease.

Breast Cancer Triple-N

Breast cancer cells have receptors for estrogen, progesterone, HER2 receptors (also called ERBB2). Triple-negative breast cancers do not have any of these receptors. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to triple-negative breast cancers.
