This October, UBM Medica’s CancerNetwork (http://www.cancernetwork.com) recognizes National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with dedicated content detailing the latest findings in breast cancer research. CancerNetwork serves as a premier online resource designed to meet the informational needs of today's busy cancer care specialists. This month, the site will focus on the issue of breast cancer by highlighting the most recent news and findings from the leading research institutes and hospitals in the field, including:

  • The latest research data and best treatment practices from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute
  • An update on the use of PARP Inhibitors in breast cancer from the University of Pittsburgh
  • Advances in lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) for women from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
  • New reports on drug resistance to PI3K Inhibitors and novel DNA silencing
  • The most recent approvals and updates from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Practice-changing highlights from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Breast Symposium in San Francisco

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer, and there will be approximately 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women by the end of 2011. “Physicians of almost every discipline have need of the latest cancer research – from the cancer care specialists working on the front lines, to the primary care physicians who play a critical role in cancer screening and early detection,” says Rachel Warren, editor of CancerNetwork and the ONCOLOGY journal. “Until we eradicate this disease, it is imperative that we arm today’s physicians with tools that result in better prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.”
