In addition, the Self-Seeding Theory, conceived by Dr. Larry Norton, in collaboration with Dr. Joan Massagué, at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, provides radically new insight into how breast cancer grows and spreads. Dr. Norton feels this is one of the most exciting new research ideas in the quest to cure breast cancer. Mounting evidence from this pioneering research is translating a theory into life-saving treatments.
