A University of Minnesota pilot project employing advanced gene-expression profiling technology seeks to develop a murine model of intraductal breast cancer progression. The investigation will assess about 350 genes from signaling pathways using NanoString profiling technology. NanoString technology is believed to be more robust than standard microarrays for analyzing samples from paraffin-embedded tissue. The technology has been used to develop a 70-gene signature for identifying mechanisms of stromal alteration in breast cancer progression. Douglas Yee, MD, and members of the Masonic Cancer Center’s Breast Cancer Translational Working Group are collaborating with Andrew C. Nelson, PhD, in the pilot project.
