ILC Publications Library

The Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance (LBCA) has compiled a reference list of research publications related to lobular breast cancer, also known as invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC).

The library contains nearly 300 studies from the year 2000 to the present.  The table that follows is our complete collection of studies. 

Publications and Articles

Studies added most recently are featured in alphabetical order under the headline New Additions at the beginning of the Publications and Articles list below.  This is followed by previously added studies. We update this research list periodically. Follow @LobularBCA and #lobular on Twitter to access up-to-date research.

How to use this table: Use the headers on the columns to sort by category. Use the Search function to locate specific study topics. To read a full article with restricted access consult a local medical library or purchase access to the full article. The LBCA can not send or link to restricted articles due to license limitations. Suggestions for additions or changes to this list can be emailed to for review. People with lobular breast cancer utilizing this publications library are encouraged to discuss all studies with their providers.
