Abstract
Breast cancer is one of the most deadly diseases all over the world. Recent findings suggest that HER2+ and HER2- Circulating Tumour Cells (CTCs) of metastatic breast cancer interconvert spontaneously and combined treatment with paclitaxel and Notch inhibitors achieves sustained suppression of tumorigenesis implicating novel therapeutic strategy to treat this devastating disease.
