Abstract:Breast cancer is the common cancer diagnosed in Canadian women. A novel treatment includes combining medicinal herbs with standard treatments.

The objective of this project is to characterize the effects in vitro of combination therapies including artemisinin, docetaxel and 5-fluorouracil on a panel of 4 breast cancer cell lines.
