According to current statistical data, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. The five-year survival rate for breast cancer patients has improved in recent years, but the overall mortality rates have changed little. In 1993 Congress allocated $210 million for breast cancer research as part of the Department of Defense budget. An Institute of Medicine (IOM) committee was convened ......

Growing knowledge of the complexity of breast cancer stimulated a transition in breast cancer research toward elucidating how external factors may infl......
