Abstract

Recently, in Nature Medicine, Schedin and colleagues define attributes within the involuting postpartum breast microenvironment that promote breast cancer metastasis. Cell invasiveness is controlled by a positive feedback loop involving COX-2 and fibrillar collagen. NSAIDs suppress tumor progression during postpartum involution, potentially providing effective agents for intervention in pregnant women.
