Sophisticated systems biology approach with nanoparticles prevents breast cancer formation in mice

A novel injectable therapy partially reverses cancer formation in cultured mammary-gland cells and prevents breast cancer development in mice. The therapy silences a new cancer-causing gene that the scientists identified using a sophisticated systems biology approach. It could one day provide a new way to treat early stages of breast cancer without surgery, chemotherapy or radiation.
