In breast malignancies, the epithelium is mainly targeted. The stroma plays an instructive and supportive role but is not targeted in the chemotherapeutic regimens. Recurrence can occur, therefore, despite full treatment. Breast tumors rarely develop in the absence of this supportive microenvironment of stroma. So therapeutic regimens should target both the epithelium and stroma for preventing recurrences and ensuring optimum treatment.
