New Options for Breast Cancer Drug Development Found in Estrogen Receptors

Case Western Reserve University

But most patients with advanced disease eventually develop drug resistance, leaving doctors desperate for alternatives. Now, researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have uncovered a previously uncharacterized, bridge-like structure within the human estrogen receptor that could serve as a valuable new drug target. In Nature Communications, researchers describe a “burning the bridge” strategy to disrupting the estrogen receptor, and how to screen breast cancer drugs designed to do it.
