As discovered by researchers at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Monash Institute of Medical Research, once breast cancer attacks a woman, it restricts her immunity system to fight against several other diseases and illnesses. It simply switches off the interferon immune signal that tells cancer cells to work. Following this, these cells hide in the blood stream and slowly spread around the body, most commonly in bones.
The good news is that to overcome the situation, Melbourne scientists have discovered a solution. According to their practice and experience, they can now impede breast cancer from spreading to the bones.
Dr. Belinda Parker says "This is particularly interesting because by understanding how they do this, we're hoping to use therapies that already exist to restore this immune function".
Interferon therapy is the technology that has been chosen to treat such patients. It is already being used for patients suffering from melanoma and hepatitis and now it will be exercised over breast cancer patients too.
According to Dr. Parker, once they are able to see such cells, they will retain them to the breast area only and will not allow them to shift and form some other kind of tumor in the human body.
