Discovery may lead to precision-based strategy for triple negative breast cancer

According to the paper now available online, TP53 is the most frequently mutated gene in triple negative breast cancer, meaning it is fuelling the growth of this aggressive form of breast cancer. However, the problem with trying to target mutated TP53, specifically, is that it is not a druggable target, because of its potential toxicity – or ability to kill – nearby healthy cells.
