The journal ecancer.org echoes on the study performed by basic and clinical researchers at IDIBELL, VHIO, IDIBAPS and IRB Barcelona. Researchers have been able to recreate and characterise the process through which resistance to chemotherapy is acquired in orthotopic animal models of breast cancer. 

Published by Stem Cell Reports, the study unveils the possibility of reversing this resistance after a period of rest from the treatment.
