Researchers found a new target for drugs that could help in treatment of breast cancer which is a most common cancer type in the world. Target seems to be a kind of switch that enables tumor to develop its own supply of the blood.

In many cases tumors are very large in the time they are diagnosed because blood vessels feed it with oxygen and nutrients. This study shows that switch which is on molecular level gives ability to stop production of growing factors in the tumor and it should be a target for new therapies.

Researchers say that if this new drugs show promising results in clinical trials it could be combined with chemotherapy in order to eliminate malignancy. Anyway , this research opens new approaches in the treatment of advanced breast cancer. Hopefully, it will help in treatment of breast cancer and reduce failures in treatments because cancer is often detected when it’s far advanced.
