Breakthrough Breast Cancer Study Could Change Treatment

    A landmark study may revolutionize breast cancer treatment.

    FOX News Radio's Bill Vitka reports:

    Audio clip:

    Breast cancer is not one disease, but ten. Investigators say while there's one umbrella disease, there are distinct sub-types.

    That allows for classification of tumors into ten categories ranging from very treatable to extremely aggressive.

    It's a major step toward the goal of precisely targeting therapies for patients.

    The new categories, reported in the journal "Nature", open the door to potential new treatment, and could spare many women the risk and pain of unneeded, toxic therapy.
