Chronic, Low-Level Inflammation May Be a Factor for Breast Density, Study Suggests

Aunt Minnie (1/24) reports that investigators “have found a new factor for breast density: chronic, low-level inflammation.” Investigators “induced a low level of chronic inflammation in mice and found that a particular protein called CCL2 caused inflammation, which then led to an increase in breast tissue density and an increased risk of breast cancer.” The findings were published online in Breast Cancer Research. DOT Med News (1/24, Dubinsky) also covers the story.
