Bisphosphonates, Aspirin and PARPs

Posted on


Well, the title of this page of the blog sounds like I've swallowed a medical dictionary!  If you have (or know somebody with) triple negative breast cancer, you'll know there isn't a magic pill or injection you can take to prevent recurrence.  With other types of breast cancer there is.  So, of course, the race is on to find something that will target triple negative cells.

Currently the buzz words are that Bisphosphonates, Aspirin and PARP Inhibitors may help.  These are still being investigated and there are clinical trials at various stages around the UK.  It's worth speaking with your Oncologist to see if you are eligible to join a trial or if you can be prescribed any of these drugs.
