Authors: Zhao Y, Onda K, Sugiyama K, Yuan B, Tanaka S, Takagi N, Hirano T Abstract In the present study, the antitumor effects of arsenic disulfide (As2S2) on the proliferative, survival and migratory ability of human breast cancer MCF‑7 and MDA‑MB‑231 cells were investigated, and its potential underlying molecular mechanisms with an emphasis on cell cycle arrest, apoptosis induction, autophagy induction and reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation were determined. The results indicated that As2S2 significantly inhibited the viability, survival and migration of breast cancer cells in a dose‑dependent m...

Effects of green tea, matcha tea and their components epigallocatechin gallate and quercetin on MCF‑7 and MDA-MB-231 breast carcinoma cells. Oncol Rep. 2018 Oct 12;: Authors: Schröder L, Marahrens P, Koch JG, Heidegger H, Vilsmeier T, Phan-Brehm T, Hofmann S, Mahner S, Jeschke U, Richter DU Abstract We investigated the anticarcinogenic potential of green tea and its components epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and quercetin, as well as tamoxifen, on MCF-7 and MDA-MB-23 breast cancer cells. Using high-performance liquid chromatography, the quantity of EGCG and quercetin in green tea was analyzed. T...

Upregulated miR‑203a‑3p and its potential molecular mechanism in breast cancer: A study based on bioinformatics analyses and a comprehensive meta‑analysis. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Oct 10;: Authors: Cai KT, Feng CX, Zhao JC, He RQ, Ma J, Zhong JC Abstract Breast cancer (BC) has been identified as the leading malignancy in women worldwide. However, the potential molecular mechanism of microRNA (miR)‑203a‑3p in BC remains to be elucidated. The present study evaluated the expression of miR‑203a‑3p in BC and adjacent normal tissue in several publically available datasets. The distinguishability of p...

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...
