Irish scientists have found a potential new way to treat one of the most aggressive and difficult to treat forms of breast cancer.
Researchers have shown that a new drug can prevent the growth of some cancer cells.
The study was carried out by Breast-Predict, an Irish Cancer Society collaborative cancer research centre.
The findings from their work have recently been published in the International Journal of Cancer.
If found to be successful in clinical trials, APR-246 has the potential to save the lives of patients with triple-negative breast cancer, which is currently difficult to treat.
