ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a research study which was conducted by San Francisco, California researchers and which was reported at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium which was held in December of 2007. The researchers involved in the study reported that they had discovered a molecular profile that can distinguish potentially fatal cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), which is a precursor to breast cancer, from cases that will not become life threatening. A discussion of the prevalence of DCIS in U.S. women, and its treatment, is presented.
