      From what I gather, they have found new therapy that people with triple-negative breast cancer have responded to. The problem with a lot of cancer therapies is that either the normal cells react badly to the drugs aimed at the cancer cells or the cancer cells do not respond adequately to the drugs. The new drugs are aimed at the nucleus of the cancer cell rather than the cell itself so it, in theory, leaves the healthy cells grow away normally.
