Copper depletion may reduce breast cancer relapse in patients at high risk

Dr. Linda Vahdat speaks with MDLinx about copper depletion research in triple negative breast cancer.

“Copper is an interesting element. It’s involved in multiple biologic processes, which are important for tumor progression both within the tumor itself and within the tumor microenvironment. In the tumor microenvironment, it facilitates tumors doing their bad things,” explained lead author Linda T. Vahdat, MD, MBA, professor of medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian, and director of the Breast Cancer Research Program and co-leader of the Breast Cancer Program, Meyer Cancer Center, New York, NY.
