Breast cancer researchers discover groundbreaking therapy
Saskatchewan researchers have brought innovative research from the lab bench to patients’ bedsides in an investigation that has the potential to translate into a highly effective breast cancer treatment.

“Several years ago we discovered a molecule on the surface of cancer cells that suppresses the aggressive behavior of breast cancer,” Andrew Freywald, pathology and laboratory medicine, one of the lead researchers on the project said. “Breast cancer cells obviously don’t like to have this molecule, because it doesn’t benefit them, so they try to get rid of it.”

The University of Saskatchewan scientists discovered that inhibiting new target molecules called SRC successfully suppressed breast cancer tumors that had lost the genetic receptor EPHB6, selectively killing cancer cells without affecting normal tissue....
