This study examines whether cancers that are classified as HER2-amplified with an alternate probe are clinicopathologically similar to those that are classified as such using the HER2/CEP17 probe. Reports for 1201 breast cancers were reviewed, and clinicopathologic findings were compared between HER2/CEP17-equivocal cases that became HER2-amplified using the alternate probe (group A: n=48), HER2-amplified cases using the HER2/CEP17 probe (group B: n=169), and HER2-nonamplified cases using the HER2/CEP17 probe (group C: n=910). Of 1201 cases tested using the HER2/CEP17 probe, 169 (14%) were HER2-amplified, 122 (10%) were eq...

We present a well-applicable and accurate tool to predict which breast cancer patients may have an underlying BRCA germline mutation, largely consisting of immunohistochemical markers independent of clinical characteristics. This may improve identification of potential BRCA germline mutation carriers and optimize referral for germline mutation testing.

CONCLUSION: By using a diverse dataset and comparing the diagnostic accuracy of three imaging modalities commonly used in breast cancer detection and diagnosis, this study also demonstrated that mammography, ultrasonography and MRI had different diagnostic performance in breast tumor identification. Among them, MRI yielded the highest performance even though the unexpected specificity may lead to over-diagnosis, and ultrosonography is slightly better than mammography.

Estrogen enhances tumor growth and angiogenesis indirectly via mediation of bone marrow‑derived cells as well as directly through stimulation of tumor and endothelial cells. Oncol Rep. 2018 Aug 07;: Authors: Zhuo Y, Li X, Zheng Q, Fan X, Ma W, Chen J, Zhao X, Zhao P, Liu X, Tang F, Cheng K, Feng W Abstract Estradiol (E2) is a prime culprit for enhancing the progression of female hormone‑related cancers. Bone marrow‑derived cells (BMDCs) have been found to play a pivotal role in tumor growth. Estrogen receptors (ERs) are also found on certain subtypes of BMDCs, in addition to endothelial cells (EC...

Inhibitor of apoptosis protein‑like protein‑2: A novel growth accelerator for breast cancer cells. Oncol Rep. 2018 Aug 03;: Authors: Zhu L, Zhou W, Zhu X, Xiang S, Wang S, Peng Y, Lu B, Tang P, Chen Q, Wu M, Peng X, Chen Z, Sun Z, Yang K, Xiang M, Yu D Abstract Although the inhibitor of apoptosis protein‑like protein‑2 (ILP‑2) has been shown as a serological biomarker for breast cancer, its effect on breast cancer cell growth remains elusive. The present study aimed to determine the role of ILP‑2 in breast cancer cell growth. We used immunohistochemistry to analyze ILP‑2 expression in 59 ...

Authors: Jin ZQ, Hao J, Yang X, He JH, Liang J, Yuan JW, Mao Y, Liu D, Cao R, Wu XZ, Li X, Chen D Abstract Cucurbitacin B (Cu B), a tetracyclic triterpenoid derived from Trichosanthes kirilowii Maxim, exhibits anticancer effects against various types of tumor. Higenamine, isolated from Radix Aconiti Lateralis Preparata, has been used as a dietary supplement for regulating metabolic function. The present study suggested that higenamine enhances Cu B-induced cytotoxicity in breast cancer cells and in vivo. Network pharmacology analysis was used to identify the possible mechanism of action. Cu B alone i...

CONCLUSIONS: This study shows that amino acids and organic acids profiles will be a potential screening tool for BC patients. The dysregulated metabolism of amino acids and organic acids in breast cancer might be useful for the diagnosis, therapy, prognosis and understanding the pathogenesis of breast cancer.
