1. – Progesterone receptor A-regulated gene expression in mammary organoid cultures. Santos SJ, Aupperlee MD, Xie J, Durairaj S, Miksicek R, Conrad SE, Leipprandt JR, Tan YS, Schwartz RC, Haslam SZ.  J Steroid Biochem Mol Biol. 2009;115(3-5):161-72.  This experimental study used breast cells from mice, cultured in vitro. First, the behavior of the cells was compared after exposure to either progesterone or the synthetic progestin, promogestone. After seeing similar proliferation with both progestogens, they then went on to conduct gene expression studies (again in the mouse mammary cells) using only the promogestone. They found that certain genes were activated by the promogestone, and these were regulated by progesterone receptor A,.

The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection. It has been alleged that “the BCAM idea ‘was conceived and paid.

What has been found in many instances is that early treatment with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy has not prolonged life and, in fact, may actually shorten life expectancy. Women in America have been whipped into a state of near-hysteria by the American Cancer Society. So much so that they have an exaggerated idea of the risk they face of contracting cancer of the breast, especially women under.
