Publication date: Available online 13 July 2019Source: Seminars in Cancer BiologyAuthor(s): Zoi Piperigkou, Nikos K. KaramanosAbstractThe biological functions of estrogens are regulated by estrogen receptors (ERα and ERβ), which contribute in the progression of several hormone-responsive cancer types via estrogen signaling mechanisms. The coordinated actions of ERs and extracellular matrix (ECM) macromolecules are principal mediators of ECM remodeling in the tumor and the adjacent stroma. In breast cancer, ERs are critical biomarkers as their expression in breast tumor determines the disease-free survival, yet g...

This study was to evaluate the efficacy of the three methods in SLNB for breast cancer, and to analyze its influencing factors. Methods: One hundred eighty patients with early breast cancer were recruited and randomly divided into 3 groups. Each group comprising of 60 patients with SLNB using ICG + MB, MB, and CN, respectively. Then the 3 groups were compared in detection rate, mean number of SLNs, and the detection rates and number of metastatic sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs). Results: The detection rate of SLNs was 100% (60 of 60) in ICG + MB group, 96.7% (58 of 60), and 98.3% (59 of 60) in MB and CN group, respecti...
