I watch for research news on breast cancer, treatments, etc., and frequently see interesting articles. There is a topic on BCO called "Breaking Research News from Breastcancer.org." One of the moderators suggested that another topic might be appropriate for posting links and synopses of reports on research found elsewhere. So here it is! Please post links to reports on research form reliable sources. Thanks for sharing!

Intratumoral Injection of c-Met CAR T Cells in Metastatic Breast Cancer

http://www.practiceupdate.com/c/60815/67/13/?elsca...

In patients with metastatic breast cancer, intratumoral injections of mRNA c-Met-CAR T cells evoked a tumor-specific inflammatory response and were well-tolerated.

Article online (Baltimore Sun): http://www.baltimoresun.com/health/bs-hs-cancer-trigger-20170625-story.html

Johns Hopkins researchers say they've unlocked key to cancer metastasis and how to slow it

Many researchers believe metastasis happens after the primary tumor reaches a certain size, but Jayatilaka found it was the tumor's density that determined when it would metastasize. The study was published online May 26 (2017) in the journal Nature Communications.

Hopeful: so glad to know that you are following! This list is not at all systematic... just interesting stuff I run across. I hope it will be of interest to others, too... and maybe inspire hope!
