Restoration of microRNAs: a form of differentiation therapy for treatment of aggressive breast cancers

Objective
The purpose of this study is to learn more about genetic material in cells called micro RNAs (miRNAs). miRNAs are increasingly being discovered as having an important role in cancer growth. We believe a specific miRNA called miR-200, may cause breast cancer to be less invasive and more sensitive to common breast cancer chemotherapies such as paclitaxel.
