    Immunological Drugs can inhibit the activity of the gene SYK and its protein product, Syk, [which] are crucial for prevention of breast cancer in the mice and human breast cells they studied.

    Interestingly, a CFS specialist I saw said I was at a very low risk for breast cancer after looking at some hormone tests I had.

    The gene SYK and its protein product "Syk is better known for its negative role in ramping up activity of the immune system, leading to a cornucopia of immunological disorders" but protects against breast cancer as well as other cancers.

    Drugs are such a tough decision if I could ever even handle them. Most likely the decision has been made for me with most drugs as I rarely handle them well at all.
