Cancerous breast tissue shows elevated bacteria levels, new research shows

Breast cancer

For the study, researchers compared the tissue of 78 breast cancer patients against breast tissue from healthy women.

It means that for one in five women their genes mean they have nearly a third higher chance of contracting the disease.

She hopes the research might lead to less harsh and more effective breast cancer treatments.

Researchers collected and analysed data of 275,000 women, half of whom had breast cancer, from around the globe with the aim to evaluate why some women were more at risk than others of developing the disease.

By combining epidemiological data with other data from breast tissue, the researchers were able to make plausible predictions of the target genes in the large majority of cases.

"A screening which would be adapted to the particular risk of each person should be used to decrease the overdiagnosis by targeting women most at risk", says Dr. Chiquette.

Baroness Delyth Morgan, chief executive of the charity Breast Cancer Now, said: 'This is another exciting step forward in our understanding of the genetic causes of breast cancer.

The newly identified risk regions almost double the number that are already known, thereby bringing the number of known common variants associated with breast cancer to around 180. "That is when it is curable and we have more treatment options if found early", McCain said.

After studying 122,977 cases of ER-positive cases, researchers can explain an additional 4 percent of that heritable breast cancer risk.

That "pink fatigue" is the reason that it is so critical that people like me, a breast cancer survivor who happens to also be a public figure, use our voices to remind women that the core message of BCAM is one that none of us can afford to tune out.

They estimate that 1 per cent of women have a risk of breast cancer more than three times greater than that of women in the general population. "There are some clear patterns in the genetic variants that should help us understand why some women are predisposed to breast cancer, and which genes and mechanisms are involved". Vitamin D levels also have a significant bearing on the development of breast cancer, "Higher blood levels of vitamin D are associated with a lower risk of breast cancer compared to women with low levels of the vitamin".

U.S. co-author Professor Peter Kraft, from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, said the findings revealed a wealth of new information about the genetic mechanisms underlying the disease.
