DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Estrogen Receptor-Positive Breast Cancer Pipeline Analysis, 2017 - Clinical Trials & Results, Patent, Designation, Collaboration, and Other Developments" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
Estrogen Receptor-Positive (ER+) breast cancer is the most common type of breast cancer diagnosed and it refers to the cancer cells that have receptors on their surface to bind with estrogen. Breast cancer is said to be estrogen receptor-positive (ER+), if it contains estrogen that receives signals from estrogen to promote cell growth.
Breast cancer is a syndrome that affects breast tissues and cells in the breast grow in an uncontrollable manner forming a tumor, which can be felt as a lump or can be viewed under x-ray.
Majority of breast cancers begin in lobules, tissues which are made up of glands for milk production and ducts that connect the lobules to the nipple.
Breast cancer still remains the major cause of deaths among women, but in coming years, it is likely that mortality and morbidity would increase in much less proportion than the standard reckoning, and there is even a possibility of decrease in the rate of occurrence of the disease.
There are several reasons that are likely to contribute to the same, such as progress in screening/diagnosis, which leads to early detection of the tumor, making it more acquiescent for treatment.
The second reason can be progress in the pharmacological treatment and incursion of new drugs such as tamoxifen, which have been highly effective in the treatment of contralateral breast cancer in ER+ patients.
Thirdly, the pipeline is very profuse; new therapeutic agents are under development, which are likely to become available in next few years.
