In the past 15 years, great strides have been made to delineate some of the pathways targeted for mutation. Most of these alterations seem to occur in pathways affecting proliferation and genomic stability. Nothing is known of the initiating events in sporadic breast cancer, nor has the actual chain of genetic events been determined for familial tumorigenesis involving BRCA1 or BRCA2. Identification of a breast stem cell population should lead to a better understanding of breast epithelial development.
