Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF β1) polymorphisms and haplotype structures have dual roles in breast cancer pathogenesis.

CONCLUSION: The present study indicates that TGFB1 variants have subtype-specific roles in BC and may switch from tumor suppressor to promoter during tumor development, consistent with TGFβ1 dual role in BC pathogenesis. PMID: 29362917 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Petrou P Abstract INTRODUCTION: Breast cancer, the second most common cancer in women, exerts a multidimensional grave effect on affected women. Among the several sub-types of breast cancer, the overexpression of the human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 gene is associated with poorer survival and higher relapse rates. Trastuzumab, a monoclonal antibody, has proved its safety and efficacy in this specific subtype, nevertheless its high cost urges for caution among payers. Areas covered: The scope of this study is to systematically search and critically assess the economic evaluation studies of trastuzum...
