Breast Cancer Prevention May Be In Malarial Drug

Breast cancer prevention and research remain on the forefront for those of us who are committed to finding a cure, as well as preventing breast cancer. According to a recent health and science article the drug used to prevent malaria may also be useful in preventing breast cancer in the future. Researchers from George Mason University, close to Washington DC, are in the process of a clinical trial to determine if a commonly prescribed drug used to prevent and treat malaria,chloroquine will be effective in treating and preventing ductal carcinoma in situ or DCIS which is the most common type of pre-invasive breast cancer. The overall strategy is to find a short-term oral treatment Deccan prevent breast cancer by destroying the precursor cells that start breast cancer development. Researchers say that it looks hopeful. Researchers stress that it is too early to tell if the preliminary treatment plan will culminate in a preventative fix for breast cancer but according to researchers the day could come when chloroquine is taken by women around the world for this purpose. DCIS shows up as white spots looking at MRI of the breast. The spots are consultations that could identify the milk ducts where DCIS cells are growing. Researchers say that not all DCIS becomes cancer; however, all breast cancer goes through the DCIS stage. Although the optimism is with caution researchers are encouraged by this drug. Dr. Seify consults with women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer for the purpose of providing options for breast reconstruction. Dr. Seify often works with the patient’s radiologist, oncologist, as well as general surgeon. Dr. Seify works with the patients to help them determine the best breast reconstruction options based on their breast cancer diagnosis, as well as their breast cancer treatment plan and their overall desires. Clinical trials are also an important part of Dr. Seify‚Äôs practice. Dr. Seify is involved in select clinical trials focused on improving the results of breast reconstruction surgery as well as the options available to patients. These exciting clinical trials include stem cell transplants as well as fat transfer and methods to reduce the negative effects of radiation treatment. Patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify and schedule a consultation to determine which breast reconstruction options are best for them.
