Fc-folate conjugate for the treatment of triple negative breast cancer
Approximately 13% of women in the United States will develop breast cancer according to the American Cancer Society. That makes breast cancer the second leading cause of cancer death in women right behind lung cancer. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) represents about 10 – 20% of all breast cancers. Triple negative refers to cancer cells...

Inhibitors of the ubiquitin E3 ligase BCA2 as anti-cancer therapeutic agents
Background:Breast cancer associated protein 2 (BCA2) is a ubiquitin E3 ligase found in invasive breast cancer. Studies have shown that by decreasing its activity, breast cancer cell growth and invasiveness are diminished. Targeting this ligase and inhibiting its activity could play a role in treatment of breast cancer. A molecular approach to inhibiting...

Antibodies to a Novel Cell Cycle and Apoptosis Regulatory Protein (CARP) -1
Wayne State University researchers have identified a novel cDNA which encodes a pro-apoptotic protein called CARP-1 (Cell Cycle and Apoptosis Regulatory Protein-1), which is expressed in many cancer cell types including breast and colon carcinoma cells. This novel cDNA can be used as a diagnostic and prognostic tool for many types of cancer. Background...
