Automated classification of breast lesions from confocal images is a step towards breast cancer diagnosis from fresh tissue samples at the point of care.
A study of 25–35-year-old women finds a link between alcohol consumption and increased mammographic density and estrogen levels.
Whole genome sequencing was used to differentiate metastatic from second primary tumors in contralateral breast cancer patients: a distinction with clinical implications for treatment and prognosis.
Ulrich Lehmann introduces a special series on lobular breast cancer.
miRNA expression profiles of distinct epithelial subpopulations shed light on the role of miRNA and the epigenome in mammary cell differentiation and oncogenesis.
Heightened anti-HER2 CD4+Th1 immune responses correlate with pathologic complete response following breast cancer treatment, suggesting that immune interventions may complement standard strategies for treating HER2+ breast cancer.

Aims & scope
Breast Cancer Research is an international, peer-reviewed online journal, publishing original research, reviews, editorials and reports. Open access research articles of exceptional interest are published in all areas of biology and medicine relevant to breast cancer, including normal mammary gland biology, with special emphasis on the genetic, biochemical, and cellular basis of breast cancer. In addition to basic research, the journal publishes preclinical, translational and clinical studies with a biological basis, including Phase I and Phase II trials.
