Shedding New Light on Breast Cancer Therapy! President Wen-Hwa Lee Led the Genomic Research Team to Open a Novel Direction for Treating Breast Cancer

President Wen-Hwa Lee of China Medical University, an Academician at Academia Sinica, led a genomic research team to publish new research results, confirming that removal of immune cells (Tregs) in tumor derived lymph nodes (TDLN) led to inhibition of the activation of TL-17RB with resultant reduction toxicity of cancer cells. Surgical dissection of TDLN substantially suppressed the probability of spreading of breast cancer cells. This set of research findings provide well-defined guidance for physicians who may be uncertain about the need to remove lymph nodes. Results from this study not only offer physicians, who are uncertain about the need to remove lymph nodes, a clear-cut guidance for managing breast cancer but also establish a new direction in developing IL-17HB antibody for treating breast cancer.
