HOUSTON ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION OF ZETA TAU ALPHA'S SUPPORT OF THE IBC CLINIC OVER THE YEARS:

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Morgan Welch Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Program and Clinic was established in 2006. Zeta Tau Alpha's Houston Alumnae Association has been supporting IBC research at MD Anderson for 16 years with over $300,000 in contributions. MD Anderson is tremendously grateful for Zeta’s help in making cancer history.

 

Although inflammatory breast cancer is the most aggressive form of breast cancer and has distinctive biological features, current treatment is still based on conventional regimens of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy developed for other types of breast cancer.  There has been little change in overall survival rates in the last 30 years and there are no therapeutic regimens developed specifically for inflammatory breast cancer.

 

MD Anderson’s multi-disciplinary team at the IBC Clinic is collectively focused on developing methods to identify specific genomic and proteomic signatures of inflammatory breast cancer. These signatures will guide the development of tools for diagnosis, identifying therapeutic approaches specifically for the treatment of inflammatory breast cancer, and enhancing imaging approaches to assist in detecting the disease and evaluating the effectiveness of treatment for inflammatory breast cancer patients. The ultimate goal is to improve the survival of inflammatory breast cancer patients.
