Do you think that everyone realizes that breast cancer is the leading worldwide cause of death among women? More than 450,000 women annually die from breast cancer. That is huge!

We are making progress in treatment and better diagnostics with advanced mammogram screening and the more refined NMR breast imaging. Together these are beginning to make a difference. And there are new promising techniques for specifically detecting diagnostic breast cancer proteins in the blood, urine and saliva. But still, a woman faces the challenge of chemotherapy, surgery or radiation to battle the cancer and extend her life.
