Australian scientists in the global study found: stem cells contained in the mammary glands can be one of the causes of cancer. Data published in the scientific journal Nature.
Breast cancer is one of the most common diseases. Note that the effective treatment of cancer is extremely important for the development of medicine.
The experiment took place over five years. Scientists have found that stem cells may also have genetic abnormalities. In the future, they become factors in causing cancer process. The result is a tumor of the transformed stem cells.
Scientists believe that their discovery will lead to a better understanding of the development of breast cancer. This will help to develop improved anti-tumor process.
