    Abstract
    Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among females, worldwide. The cytokines are proteins that have a significant role in the development of tumor growth. Leukemia inhibitory factor of the interleukin-6 cytokines superfamily plays a significant role, by the modulation of many signaling pathways.
