Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is associated with a poor prognosis, mainly due to the disease’s ability to metastasize extensively following an early relapse post treatment. Zhou et al. (2015) investigated this by examining lectin binding to cell surface factors, showing that these play a role in metastasis in this devastating form of breast cancer.1 The Read the rest of this article

As cheese ripens, its microbial population changes; the number of the initial starter culture organisms diminishes and secondary opportunists multiply as conditions become more favorable for them. This second wave of non-starter (NS) bacteria mainly comprises mesophilic lactic acid bacteria (NS-LAB) and they are usually considered welcome in the cheese-making process since they often contribute Read the rest of this article
