    Immunomodulation by MIP in murine model of breast cancer(Talwar research foundation)
    Breast cancer is amongst the most common life threatening malignancies in women. Worldwide, breast cancer comprises 22.9% of all cancers in women (World Cancer Report, 2008). Whereas, the primary tumour can be efficiently treated by a combination of standard therapies, preventing the metastatic spread of the disease through disseminated tumour cells is currently ineffective. The eradication of disseminated tumour cells present in blood circulation and in various organs, where they form distant by (DST)
