Q. Where does the money go?

Vinger Center for Breast Care. 
 
As many of you know, dollars rasied for SOIP have in  part gone to support breast cancer research
here at Gundersen.  Dr. Simon Shelley and his research team recently had a paper accepted by the
British Journal of Cancer that describes their EXCITING recent work on breast cancer.
 
Here's what they found through their research:
 
CONCLUSION:  Our results indicate that patterns of sialophorin (name of a molecule that is normmally
only found on the surface of white blood cells) production within breast tumors can be used to classify them
in a new way.  This new method of classification could be used in the future to predict survival and response
to treatment.  Our results also indicate that targeting sialophorin represents a new way in which breast cancer
could be treated.
