Research published in the Jan. 21, 2013 issue of The Journal of Cell Biology, a team led by Susana Gonzalo, Ph.D., assistant professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at St. Louis University, has discovered a molecular pathway that contributes to triple-negative breast cancer, an often deadly and treatment resistant form of breast cancer that tends to strike younger women and women of color.

In addition, Gonzalo and her team identified vitamin D and some protease inhibitors as possible new therapies and discovered a set of three bio-markers that can help to identify patients who could benefit for the treatment. In the future, women with triple-negative breast cancer may benefit from a treatment that includes vitamin D.
