Spread of aggressive breast cancer suppressed by RNA snippet

Posted Jul 01 2009 6:46pm

According to this article on Physorg a new study shows that high levels of a tiny fragment of RNA appear to suppress the spread of breast cancer in mice according to researchers at Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research. Measuring levels of this so-called microRNA, which is also associated with metastatic breast cancer in humans, may more accurately predict the likelihood of metastasis (which accounts for 90 percent of cancer-related deaths) and ultimately help determine patient outcomes.
