breast cancer Study Examines How Gene Therapy Can Fight Breast CancerHow big a role do your genes play in development of breast cancer? It’s a question Dr. Malathy Shekher and her team are studying at the Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit.

“We are really interested in understanding what are the mechanisms that really lead to the path of resistance; can we identify some markers that can predict that a patient can respond to treatment or predict that they will not respond and eventually become resistant,” Shekher said.

“We’ve come a long way. We’ve got good therapeutic strategies now,” she said.
