Breast Cancer Genes: When the Sequence Is Not Enough

Surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are the mainstays of oncology, composing most of the first-line standard of care for virtually all cancers. As newer strategies are introduced into the therapeutic arsenal, particularly for earlier stages of disease, they are almost always tested in addition to, rather than instead of, the standard of care. Not only are these newer strategies proving effective in combination with the older methods, but surprisingly strong synergies are emerging among them. Several CCR investigators are finding ways to exploit these synergies for the benefit of patients. Read the full story »
