Summary  This research investigated the anti-cancer effects of milk protein, lactoferrin. It was found that lactoferrin specifically induced cell death in breast cancer cells and was non-toxic to normal mammary gland cells. Key molecular mechanisms targeted by lactoferrin were elucidated in this study which provides important insight into the activity of this protein as an anti-cancer agent.
