Breast cancer diagnosis

Breast cancer diagnosis

(Geneva = Larose.VIP) Correspondent Ahn Hee = A study by Swiss researchers showed that granulocytes, a type of white blood cell, promote the process of breast cancer metastasis.

According to the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, on the 21st (local time), researchers at the university recently announced the results of a study that identified the mechanism of breast cancer metastasis.

Breast cancer is considered a type of cancer with a high possibility of treatment and recovery, but metastases occur in one in four patients, worsening the disease.

In their report, the researchers announced that the cancer metastasis process is promoted by inflammation inside and around the tumor, and that they have discovered a new mechanism between this inflammation and the development of metastasis.

The researchers explained, “Among the white blood cells that play a defensive role when acute inflammation occurs in our body, granulocytes promote the formation of metastases.”

He added, “It induces the granulocytes in the tumor area of ​​cancer cells to produce the inflammatory mediators ‘interleukin 6’ and ‘oncostatin’, and these two mediators transform breast cancer cells into highly metastatic cancer stem cells.” .

The University of Friborg said in a press release, “This study revealed that certain white blood cells promote the formation of breast cancer metastases, a discovery that could play an important role in the development of new treatments in the future.”
