Research results have shown that a phosphatase called PTP1B is involved in the development of breast cancer. Recently Dr. Tonks discovered that a drug that inhibits PTP1B and prevents metastasis in mouse models of HER2-positive breast cancer. He is currently working with clinicians to test this drug in an upcoming clinical trial in women HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer.
