Galactose Consumption and Metabolism and Breast Cancer (1994)

Title:

Galactose Consumption and Metabolism and Breast Cancer

Key words:

galactose transferase, galactose metabolizing enzyme

Research Institution:

Brigham and Women's Hospital

Location:

Massachusetts

Researcher:

Daniel W Cramer

Project Description:

Dr. Cramer has demonstrated that postmenopausal women with a history of ovarian cancer exhibit a two-fold increase in the likelihood of expressing a variant galactose transferase (GALT), galactose metabolizing enzyme. Since both breast and ovarian cancers may have a common endocrinologic etiology, Dr. Cramer sought to identify why breast and ovarian cancer share common risk factors and determine the potential of a screening program for women with GALT abnormalities or abnormal hormonal profiles.
