If cancer treatment is effective, recurrence remains a major threat. The finding could contribute to improved treatment for breast cancer, Prof. Kim Lee-su of Hallym University said.

“The protein will be a good barometer in predicting whether one will have bad prognosis, including relapse,” Kim said.
