Excess Growth Hormone in Acromegaly Linked to Aggressive Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

by Manisha Kashyap, PhD

A recent study has uncovered a connection between acromegaly, a condition where the body produces too much growth hormone (GH), and the development of aggressive triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Researchers, led by Chan Woo Kang of Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea, explored how this excess GH influences cancer progression and potential treatments. The work was published June 19, 2024 in iScience and the open-access article is titledExcess Endocrine Growth Hormone in Acromegaly Promotes the Aggressiveness and Metastasis of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer.”
