Medroxyprogesterone acetate-driven increase in breast cancer risk might be mediated via cross-talk with growth factors in the presence of progesterone receptor membrane component-1.
BACKGROUND The WHI trial suggests an increase of breast cancer in postmenopausal women probably according to the progestogenic compound, i.e. medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA). However, the mechanismExpand
