A leading team of Newcastle University scientists funded by research charity Breast Cancer Campaign have found that ‘turning off’ two proteins reduces the ability of breast cancer cells to survive and grow. The scientists believe this could be a possible ‘Achilles’ heel’ approach that could work in many types of breast cancer, potentially helping to find a way to stop the return of tumours after treatment, increasing survival chances for women with the disease.
