In 1990- 2 genetic tests were discovered. In 1992 standards were passed for mammography quality. In 1994 Taxol and Paclitaxel were approved for advanced breast cancer. In 2003 scientists looked at cancer stem cells and how they could held a key on how cancer spreads. Today in 2010 we are looking at breast cancer stem cells and wondering if something was missed.
There is no doubt about it. Some progress is being made.
