Researchers win grant to study Indian genetics and cancer drugs


Researchers in Montana have won a $1.4 million to study how Indian genetics interact with cancer drugs.

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, the Montana Cancer Institute and the University of Montana are working on the project. In particular, they want to know how Indian patients with breast cancer respond to the anti-estrogen cancer drug Tamoxifen.

The study is part of a larger effort to create a center in the Northwest for pharmacogenomics research.
