A Translational Study of the Interactions Between Prior Pregnancy and the Biologic Subtype of Breast Cancer in Defining the Cancer: Host Immunologic Interaction
The investigators will be looking at the level of immune suppression in different types of
breast cancer. The investigators will use blood, urine, and tissue samples from patients
with Pregnancy Associated Breast Cancer (PABC) versus non-PABC, as well as comparing
different types of breast cancer. If tissue sampling permits, the investigators may use
some of the breast cancer tissue to develop models for human cancer for drug targeting.
Understanding the immune response and suppression in different types of cancer will help us
understand mechanisms involved in breast cancer better and help the investigators in
developing new treatment in the future.
