Evolutionary exploitation of PD-L1 expression in hormone receptor positive breast cancer

Abstract

Based on clinical data from hormone positive breast cancer patients, we determined that there is a potential tradeoff between reducing tumor burden and altering metastatic potential when administering combination therapy of aromatase inhibitors and immune checkpoint inhibitors. While hormone-deprivation therapies serve to reduce tumor size in the neoadjuvant setting pre-surgery, they may induce tumors to change expression patterns towards a metastatic phenotype. We used mathematical modeling to explore how the timing of the therapies affects tumor burden and metastatic potential with an eye toward developing a dynamic prognostic score and reducing both tumor size and risk of metastasis.

Cell Checkpoints & Regulators

Cell cycle checkpoints are a series of complex checkpoint mechanisms that detect DNA abnormalities and ensure that DNA replication and repair are complete before cell division. They are primarily regulated by cyclins, cyclin-dependent kinases, and the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome. Here is the latest research.

Breast Invasive Carcinoma

Invasive breast cancers indicate a spread into breast tissues and lymph nodes. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to breast invasive carcinomas.
