Ilaria Muller, PhD student, Cardiff University, on a possible common antigen between thyroid cancer and breast cancer. Muller says if this common antigen does exist, an immune therapy could hypothetically be developed to combat it and essentially combat both breast and thyroid cancer.

 

Muller sadds that in most forms of thyroid cancer, the thyroid can be removed and replacement treatments for its function can be taken. Muller and colleagues at Cardiff Univeristy are currently investigating the topic of thyroid autoimmunity as a biomarker of outcome in women with breast cancer by way of a large-scale study using data from the Taxotere As Adjuvant Chemotherapy (Tact) Trial (Cruk01/001).
