Research Corner

Predicting whether breast cancer will recur may one day be as simple as a blood test, thanks to pioneering research led by Joseph A. Sparano, M.D. Through $375,000 in funding from Susan G. Komen®, and additional financial support, Dr. Sparano and his team at the ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group found that the presence of circulating tumor cells five years after diagnosis was a strong indicator of whether a patient would experience a breast cancer recurrence.
