Combination Therapy Targets Breast Cancer that has Spread to Brain

August 6, 2013 | Using a mouse-model system, researchers at UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center have combined cellular therapy and gene therapy to develop a possible treatment for breast cancer that has spread to the brain. Managing metastasis of breast cancer has been difficult because of complications with the blood-brain barrier and occurrence of metastases in several locations of the brain at once.
