MOLECULAR CHANGE OCCURRING DURING BRAIN TUMOR PROGRESSION ALSO EVIDENT IN BREAST CANCER
A molecular change that takes place in the newly formed blood vessels of progressing brain tumors have now been documented in the most common type of breast cancer, as well. The molecular shift occurs in major proteins called laminins, important constituents of blood vessels. As tumors become increasingly invasive, the laminins normally found in blood vessels become altered in the blood vessels of the tumors as part of a process that enables the tumors to grow and metastasize. Observing these changes in the tissue of individual patients may offer physicians a way to accurately diagnose breast carcinoma and predict further development. The molecular mechanism itself is seen as a future target for therapy aimed at cutting off the oxygen and nutrients tumors require.
