Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) does not express estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and Her2 as therapeutic targets and consequently has the worst prognosis among all types of breast cancers. Metabolic reprogramming toward aerobic glycolysis (also called the Warburg effect) is a hallmark of cancer, which is further activated in TNBC. Although aerobic glycolysis may be therapeutically targeted, the druggable pathway has not been identified. p38 is a TNBC oncogene and stimula...
