  • Cancer type: Breast Cancer
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Description: MCF7 cells serve as a prototypic model system for human breast cancer and their response to secretive endocrine response modifiers (SERM) therapy. MCF7 cells, upon long term exposure to tamoxifen, acquire tam-resistance and continue to grow in the presence of tamoxifen. This provides a cell-based model , both in vitro and in vivo, for tam-resistant breast cancer, allows the testing of alternate therapies to tam-resistant breast cancer, or the high-throughput testing of drugs that might synergize with hormone based therapies.
