This pin was designed by Dr. Sanford Barsky in 1999, while a pathologist and cancer researcher at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Barsky successfully implanted inflammatory breast cancer into a mouse. Using this xenograft of human inflammatory breast cancer, his research continues.
Dr. Barsky’s pin uses the pink breast crossed ribbon as its basis, but depicts a cross section of an endothelial-cell-formed lymphovascular space, with six epithelial cells forming a tumor embolus in that space. The formation of tumor emboli of as many as hundreds of epithelial tumor cells is characteristic of inflammatory breast cancer.
This metal pin measures approximately 1 1/4″ by 3/4″ and has a pushpin fastener.
