Proteasome inhibitors might be effective in aggressive breast cancer treatment - drugdiscovery.com


A research conducted on triple-negative tumor cells in vitro shows that these cells require active proteasomes in order to live. These data suggest that triple-negative breast cancers may respond to treatment with drugs similar to Velcade (bortezomib).
