Basal-like breast cancer has been reported to be the most aggressive and deadly carcinoma sub-type. Patients diagnosed with this subtype have a less than 50% five-year survival. In addition, many studies have reported that this sub-type is more prevalent in specific ethnic groups and is believed to be a key factor that drives certain ethnic disparities in mortality. In order to effectively study this sub-type and determine unique gene expression and biochemical pathways which sustain this cancer's growth, we sought to identify human breast cancer cell lines that represent a model for the basal-like subtype. Here, we report our findings which indicate the African American cell line CRL-2335 is a true representative of basal-like breast carcinoma.

The submission process for manuscript publication in Breast Cancer: Basic and Clinical Research is as easy as A,B,C! Any minor hiccups I encountered were quickly addressed by Libertas' expert staff via prompt emails, and the timelines between initial submission and publication are surely the shortest on record! I will definitely be submitting future manuscripts to this journal, and look forward to working with their professional and expert team.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
