Pathologists identify new potential target in ovarian serous cancer: HER4 expression.....



medical news
 HER4 expression may be linked to chemotherapy resistance, lower survival rate

  Moffitt pathologists looked at the levels of HER4 expression in 100 ovarian serous carcinoma specimens. They found that the samples that contained the HER4 expression were linked to chemotherapy resistance and a shortened life span. This means HER4 may be a prognostic and potentially a predictive marker in ovarian serous cancer, but more studies are needed. In addition HER4 could potentially become a target for therapy.
