Wichtiges Protein in der Entstehung und Behandlung von Brustkrebs identifiziert

Wie entsteht Brustkrebs und warum sind manche Patientinnen resistent gegen etablierte Therapien? Forschende der Universität Basel haben neue Erkenntnisse zu den molekularen Prozessen im Brustgewebe gewonnen. Sie identifizierten den Tumorsuppressor LATS als zentralen Akteur in der Entwicklung und Behandlung von Brustkrebs. Diese Forschungsarbeit wurde von untertützt (MRD Projekt MetastasiX).
