Inflammatory Breast Cancer, otherwise known as IBC, has a very poor prognosis due to its high rate of metastasis. Seven (7) sub-types of Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) have been identified in a recent study by Lehmann and colleagues.
“Our data show that, like TN-non-IBC, TN-IBC is a heterogeneous disease. Although clinical characteristics differ significantly between IBC and non-IBC, no unique IBC-specific TNBC subtypes were identified by mRNA gene-expression profiles of the tumor.”
