Semaphorin7A, a novel biomarker of breast cancer may promote growth and metastasis.
We are looking for a potential new tumor marker for breast cancer called Semaphorin 7A. Samples are being collected from women that have been newly diagnosed with breast cancer as well as healthy volunteers. We want to know what role it plays in tumor progression and if it can be a potential target for future treatment.
Women who are 18 years of age or older that have tested positive for breast cancer and have not yet undergone radiation or chemotherapies and plan to have lumpectomy or mastectomy surgery at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
