Authors: Reshadmanesh A, Rahbarizadeh F, Ahmadvand D, Jafari Iri Sofla F Abstract According to the cancer stem cell (CSC) theory, a small subset of cells with stem cell-like characteristics is responsible for tumor initiation, progression, and recurrence. CD44+/CD24- phenotype is assumed to be one of the main characteristics of the breast CSCs. We developed an MDA-MB-231 cell line overexpressing cell surface HER2 antigen for the evaluation of targeting efficiency of anti-HER2 nanobody (Nb)-conjugated polyamidoamine (PAMAM) polyplexes. Apoptosis-inducing tBid gene under control of CXCR1 promoter was delivered by thi...

Authors: Cetintas S, Tezcan G, Tunca B, Egeli U, Gokgoz MS, Cecener G Abstract Distant organ tumor dissemination is a major cause of breast cancer-related deaths. In 2010, we analyzed the prognostic importance of the circulating tumor markers (CTM) cytokeratin (CK)19, CK20, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) in relation to the clinical and pathological characteristics of patients with breast cancer (BC). To assess the clinical utility of CK19, CK20 and EGFR in predicting distant metastasis and recurrence in BC, here we report 7-year follow-up results of 77 pa...

Authors: Li L, Liu S, Liu L, Ma Z, Feng M, Ye C, Zhou W, Wang Y, Liu L, Wang F, Yu L, Zhou F, Xiang Y, Huang S, Fu Q, Zhang Q, Gao D, Yu Z Abstract The expression of insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R), which is involved in the genesis and progression of breast cancer, is thought to be associated with the overall survival (OS) of patients. However, the predictive and prognostic significance of the IGF-1R expression in breast cancer remains controversial. The present study aimed to identify the factors associated with the levels of phosphorylated (p)-IGF-1R in breast cancer, their impact on the outcomes o...

Abstract In spite of rapid advances in understanding of signaling networks associated with the incidence and therapeutic-sensitivity, breast cancer (BC) still remains the most commonly diagnosed and prevalent cancer in women. Emergence of resistance to hormonal interventions in estrogen-receptor (ER) positive BC coupled to loss of ER expression and activation of ER-independent growth factor, heat-shock, MYC and WNT pathways along with distinct mechanisms of therapeutic-resistance in HER2 over-expressing and triple-negative subtypes of BC collectively necessitates deeper profiling of the mechanistic networks regula...

(Jackson Laboratory) IL1b, a member of the interleukin 1 family of cytokines (proteins released by certain cells of the immune system) drives the inflammation often found in cancer, and appears as an 'IL1 signature' in women with HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer. This signature can not only serve as a diagnostic tool for HER2-negative cancers but also offer an effective treatment target.

Wang Human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER) 2 (HER2) is overexpressed in 20–30% of breast cancers. HER2 is a preferred target for treating HER2-positive breast cancer. Trastuzumab and pertuzumab are two HER2-targeted monoclonal antibodies approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to use as adjuvant therapy in combination with docetaxel to treat metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer. Adding the monoclonal antibodies to treatment regimen has changed the paradigm for treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer. Despite improving outcomes, the percentage of the patients who benefit from the treatmen...

Distribution and prognostic value of tumor‑infiltrating T cells in breast cancer. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Sep 05;: Authors: Meng S, Li L, Zhou M, Jiang W, Niu H, Yang K Abstract Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes are associated with the response to neoadjuvent chemotherapy and prognosis in breast cancer. However, the distribution, interaction and prognostic value of tumor‑infiltrating T cells, the main component of the tumor microenvironment, have seldom been reported. In the present study, surgical specimens of 72 breast cancer patients were analyzed. Tumor‑infiltrating T cell subsets [cluster of differen...

In this study, we carried out phosphoproteomic analysis of lapatinib sensitive and resistant cell lines (SKBR3 and SKBR3-LR) using stable isotope labeling with amino acids in cell culture (SILAC). We identified 3808 phosphopeptides from 1807 proteins and then analyzed signaling pathways, Gene Ontology, and protein-protein interaction networks. Finally, we identified PAK2 as a therapeutic target from the network analysis and validated that PAK2 knockdown and PAK inhibitor treatment resensitize the lapatinib resistant cells to lapatinib. This results suggest that PAK2 is a potent therapeutic target to overcome acquired lapat...
