Summary of news published since Week 40-2016

jpa4Sibil220WITH a high level of incidence, since it threatens one woman in eight, breast cancer is one of the major hazards facing women everywhere. While early detection and appropriate remedial action allow chances of survival to keep improving, the availability of garments designed to facilitate treatment also makes a significant contribution to a successful outcome. Consequently, the radiotherapy bra described here this week represents a potential generator of high volume sales. Its special features represent only one approach to effective performance, however, and there may well be others that can be exploited profitably. Bra makers that develop other effective approaches can look forward to very substantial rewards and further research and development in this field promise a substantial return on investment.
