Question from Barb: Are you aware of the Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Foundation's BioBank and do you feel this will be beneficial in the research we need?
Answers - Gabriel N. Hortobagyi, M.D., F.A.C.P. For further understanding of the biology of inflammatory breast cancer, it is critical to develop collections of tumors and a well-annotated description of the patients and the treatment used for the treatment of that tumor. The more these selections of well-annotated tumors can be developed, the more rapidly we will learn how to best treat, monitor, and prevent these tumors.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Inflammatory Breast Cancer featured Gabriel Hortobagyi, M.D., Thomas Buchholz, M.D., and moderator Jennifer Sabol, M.D. answering your questions about inflammatory breast cancer, a rare but aggressive form of breast cancer.
