💗 📆 A day in the life of…Rebecca Orha. "I joined the Breast Cancer Now Toby Robins Research Centre @icr_london in London in April 2017 as a Scientific Officer in the Molecular Cell Biology team. My role is never boring, as I assist people in our lab with experiments."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Our group focuses on understanding how breast cancer can spread to distant organs. At the moment, I am working with one of the postdocs in our group, Lynda O’Leary, on a project that looks at ‘sleeping’ cancer cells which have spread from the breast to other parts of the body. These cancer cells can suddenly wake up and grow into tumours, resulting in secondary breast cancer, which is sadly incurable. The main aim of the project is to understand what triggers allow these cancer cells to wake up."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are very grateful to @walkthewalk for their generous support for the work of the Molecular Cell Biology team.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read Rebecca's interview in full clicking the link in our bio.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What breasts are made of, and where and how cancer starts? 🤔 Breast tissue is found in the breast, upper chest and the armpit. Each breast contains 15-20 glands called lobes, where milk is produced. These lobes are connected to the nipple by tubes called ducts. Breast cancer usually begins within the lobes. (Click on bio to read more)

Are you having breast cancer treatment?👩‍⚕️ We take a closer look at the treatments available for early breast cancer. These include surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and targeted (biological) therapy. You will often have more than one treatment, and the order in which you have them will depend on your breast cancer and your personal preferences. (Clink on bio to read more)💗

📰 US National Cancer Institute study shows one patient’s advanced breast cancer has been ‘eliminated’ using T-cell immunotherapy. The immune system of one patient has been tweaked to eliminate breast cancer cells, offering a potential treatment approach for metastatic breast cancers for which conventional therapies have failed, according to a new paper published online this week in Nature Medicine. . The therapy involved isolating the immune cells found in a patient’s tumour, and selecting those with the greatest potential to attack the patient’s cancer cells. The scientists then introduced these cells back into the patient, along with a drug called a ‘checkpoint inhibitor’, which blocks the molecular signals which stop the immune system from carrying out its attack. . 💬 Dr. Simon Vincent, Director of Research at Breast Cancer Now: “This is a hugely exciting first in the treatment of advanced breast cancer. But it has only been shown to work in a single patient, and we now need larger trials to investigate how the T-cell therapy and ‘checkpoint inhibitors’ have worked together to attack the secondary tumours." . “Metastatic breast cancer remains incurable, and if we are to finally stop women dying we urgently need to find new ways to target and stop the spread of the disease." . . .

TOUCH your breasts. Can you feel anything unusual? LOOK for changes. Is there any change in shape or texture? CHECK anything unusual with your doctor. It’s as simple as TLC: Touch Look Check.💕. It doesn't matter where you check your breasts, as long as you check them regularly, it could save your life. . . . @victoriaderbyshire @bbctwo @bbcnews

Within two days I received an email back suggesting a suitable date. It was really straight forward arranging my meeting with them to discuss Breast Cancer Now’s work on the postcode lottery in breast cancer services."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the meeting: "I introduced myself and I discussed how breast cancer had affected me directly and why I had got involved with Breast Cancer Now. We then discussed breast cancer services at a local level and how he could help by contacting the chair of his local Cancer Alliance. We also talked about how he can help with any local events that I am running and any national campaigns as he was an Ambassador for Breast Cancer Now."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Following up: "I left the meeting having agreed to invite him to any local event and if he was free then he would happily attend and support us. I came out of the meeting feeling empowered and really pleased with my first encounter with a MP. Did I think it would be a lot more difficult to get access to my local MP - Yes!! But it was very straightforward and I am ready to see my second MP who is my partner’s local MP next week."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🔬 In the light of this week's news about a study showing T cell immunotherapy eliminated one patient’s advanced breast cancer, we revisit the emerging field of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A type of immune cell known as T cells are shaping up to be the main players in the development of immunotherapies; CAR T cell therapy takes this one step further – genetically altering T cells so that they specifically recognise and attack proteins found on cancer cells. Patients provide a blood sample, which their T cells are extracted from and ‘reprogrammed’ to recognise a specific target protein found on the patient’s tumour. Large quantities of the T cells will then be grown in the lab before being injected back into the patient where they will seek out the target protein on cancer cells and attack.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over recent years there has been an explosion in research into immunotherapies, with great progress being made. Although researchers also face the major challenge of ensuring that CAR T cells are safe for patients, they still hold great promise for the future. Breast cancer patients urgently need highly targeted, effective treatments that both minimise side effects and reduce the risk of recurrence, and immunotherapies may be able to meet this need.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To read our blog click the link in our bio.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
