Leading breast cancer researchers from across the country convened the first meeting of the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Prevention Research Initiative. The two-day meeting, brought together researchers from leading institutions who are focused on the remarkable research in breast cancer biomarkers that has taken place over the last three years. The goal was to use the latest biomarker knowledge to develop new tests for the earliest detection and diagnostics in breast cancer --ultimately leading to monitor the earliest changes in healthy breasts before cancer occurs.
Current breast cancer screening This article or section recently underwent a major revision or rewrite and needs further review. You can help! X-ray mammography
Mammography is still the modality of choice for screening of early breast cancer, since it is relatively fast, reasonably accurate, and relies primarily on imaging, including mammography mammography, diagnostic procedure that uses low-dose X rays to detect abnormalities in the breasts. The early diagnosis of breast cancer made possible by the routine use of mammography for screening women increases a woman's treatment alternatives and improves her , ultrasound and MRI 1.

2. MRI - Measurement Requirements and Interface. . While these diagnostic modalities provide the opportunity for detection and successful treatment, the aim of the new Avon Foundation-funded research initiative is to pursue non-imaging techniques that offer compelling and innovative opportunities. In support of this novel direction, 12 projects were selected through a competitive application process, with a total of $7.6 million awarded in support of their research. The projects, which are focused on fairly simple but effective methods, range from developing a new "band-aid" dipstick dipstick /dip·stick/ (dip´stik) a strip of cellulose chemically impregnated to render it sensitive to protein, glucose, or other substances in the urine. that collects fluid from nipple discharge nipple discharge Breast discharge Breast disease Serous or serosanguinous fluid emanating from a nipple, most common in peri- and post-menopausal ♀, due to various lesions–eg, intraductal papilloma, nipple adenoma, ductal ectasia, Paget's disease of to several projects that attempt to measure markers in blood to detect the very earliest breast cancer development.
The leaders of the research projects are meeting to present preliminary findings and share ideas in a spirit of collaboration and a shared commitment to ending breast cancer. Included is one pharmaceutical company, A&G Pharmaceutical, in addition to the individual medical researchers.
"The Avon Foundation is proud to support these researchers in their innovative approaches to breast cancer detection and prevention," stated Marc Hurlbert, PhD, Director of the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade. "Our goal is to advance research that will one day eradicate breast cancer and, at the same time, facilitate collaboration and sharing. This meeting is a part of that critical process."

The Breast Cancer Prevention Research Initiative is one of many programs of the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade. The Avon Crusade first launched in 1992, and, through 2007, more than $525 million has been raised in over 50 countries worldwide to advance access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved. Funding is awarded to beneficiaries ranging from leading cancer centers to community-based nonprofit organizations for breast cancer outreach and education; screening and diagnostics; access to treatment; support services; and medical research. The Avon Crusade is the largest initiative of the Avon Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity with a mission to improve the lives of women, with a focus on breast cancer and domestic violence.
