The title is addressing questions about possible cellular pathways that could inhibit excess aromatase production that drives stage III or IV breast cancer. A better rewording of this article could read as follows: Restricting specific genes limit aromatase production in breast cancer patients.
Q 2: Who are the authors and where do they work?
There are 59 credited authors in this quantitative study. It appears as if most of them work at the Washington University of St. Louis, but at least one author works at each of the following locations: The Mayo Clinic, University of California-Santa Cruz, the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, University of California-San Francisco, the Doctors Hospital of Laredo (Texas), Duke University, Good Samaritan Hospital (Cincinnati), University of Texas Southwestern, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Q3: Does the abstract draw a big picture and clearly state the question, hypothesis, experimental design and results?
The abstract states the overall big picture, which is defining and correlating clinical features and identifying genes that potentially...
