Susan G. Komen Grants $3.6 Million for UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University

Susan G.  Komen, from For The Cure, has granted $3.6 million for cancer research to UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University.

The amount will go for 10 programs for studies, including contribution of radiation therapy to heart damages in breast cancer patients and treatment decisions.  Moreover, it will help researchers figure out how decisions, access to care, and financial or geographic barriers are impacting breast cancer outcomes among African American breast cancer patients in low-income and rural areas.

The organization made an announcement that Duke will be one of four recipients of a $4.5 million research program.  It is intended to have better understanding of the role played by environmental issues in breast cancer development.

The distribution of amount has not been announced as of now.  Susan G.  Komen granted a $1 million to the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.  The finding will help pinpoint a new treatment for a particular type of breast cancer.  The announcement was made on Thursday by the center.

Dr.  Jeremy Blaydes, from the University of Southampton has discovered a new way to stop the growth of breast cancer cells using sugar, which bocks certain proteins.

Dr.  Jeremy said, "Because this is an entirely new approach to treatment, the drugs we are developing could be effective against breast cancers that have become resistant to current chemotherapies".
