OU Researcher Identifies Molecule that Promotes Breast Cancer Growth

Home Blog OU Researcher Identifies Molecule that Promotes Breast Cancer Growth

A University of Oklahoma researcher may have identified a new treatment for breast cancer that targets a specific molecule to keep the disease from spreading. This research was funded through a grant from the National Cancer Institute to determine why the DNPH1 is overproduced in breast cancer cases and if eliminating it would prevent cancer from spreading. If a drug could be developed to stop the molecule from spreading, it could help prevent cancer from metastasizing in other parts of the body.
