Benaroya Research Institute evaluates immunology approach to blocking breast cancer
Benaroya Research Institute received a grant to research how blocking a particular molecule in metastatic breast cancer reduces both the growth of primary tumors and the number of lung metastases. BRI scientists have found in disease models that blocking this protein can shrink tumors by 60-80 percent and can keep the tumor from metastasizing or spreading. The $1.8 million five-year grant comes from the National Cancer Institute of the NIH.
