Targeting Breast Cancer Stem Cells to

WIN THE WAR on Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a complex disease that affects millions of women, as well as a growing number of men, worldwide. It is a major public health concern. It has been extensively studied for many years, and significant progress has been made in understanding its biology and developing effective treatments. Breast cancer stem cells, on the other hand, were only discovered relatively recently. It is a is a small subpopulation of cells within the tumor, with the ability to resist chemotherapy treatments, self-renew and differentiate into various types of cancer cells. There is a growing recognition of the importance of breast cancer stem cells as they are believed to play a critical role in tumor initiation, progression, and metastasis.

It is difficult to estimate the exact number of breast cancer recurrences that will occur in a given year, but according to some studies, up to 30% of people who have been treated for breast cancer may experience a recurrence. Therefore, studying stem cells is essential to advancing our understanding of breast cancer and improving patient care.


Studying natural compounds

Studying natural compounds against cancer stem cells is valuable because it could lead to the development of more effective, less toxic, and affordable treatments for breast cancer, ultimately improving the outcomes for patients. Natural compounds offer several advantages over traditional chemotherapeutic agents: they are often less toxic and have fewer side effects, making them more suitable for long-term use.

Additionally, natural compounds are generally more readily available and affordable than synthetic drugs. Finally, they have the potential to be used in combination with other treatments, such as radiation or chemotherapy, to enhance their effectiveness.

Mission of The Beljanski Foundation

The Beljanski Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) whose mission is to study and share knowledge of effective non-toxic natural answers that work both alone and in synergy with traditional western medicine to cure cancer and other chronic diseases the natural way.

Over the past several years, the Beljanski Foundation has already led successful research programs, in partnership with Kansas University Medical Center, on the role of pancreatic cancer stem cells in tumor growth and progression and the effects of two plant extracts on Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells, and seen exciting results on breast cancer with a study comparing different kinds of green teas.

It would be, therefore, extremely valuable to see if those results could be reproduced and extended to Breast Cancer Stem Cells.
