Importance of CD45RO+ tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes in post-operative survival of breast cancer patients
ConclusionFrom our data we conclude that CD45RO+ TILs serve as prognostic factors for predicting OS and DFS of breast cancer patients.
This study sought to identify clinicopathological factors associated with upstaging and axillary metastasis in patients preoperatively diagnosed with DCIS by CNB.Materials and MethodsThis study identified 604 patients (cT1 ‐3N0M0) with preoperative diagnosis of pure DCIS by CNB who had undergone axillary evaluation from August 2006 to December 2015 at Fudan University Shanghai Cancer Center (FUSCC). Predictors of upstaging and axillary lymph nodes metastasis were analyzed, respectively.ResultsOf all 604 patients, 121 (20.03%) and 193 (31.95%) patients were upstaged to DCIS with microinvasion (DCISM) and invasive breast c...
We present a pathological perspective of our experience. PMID: 31598347 [PubMed]
ConclusionFurther functional studies to decipher the role of IDH2 and its mechanism of action as a driver of BC progression and LVI are warranted.
ConclusionsThe results of our study could be useful for enhance the role of MTD and identify unmet needs in decision making process in EBC.Legal entity responsible for the studyThe authors.FundingHas not received any funding.DisclosureAll authors have declared no conflicts of interest.
CONCLUSIONS: Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes are localized variously depending on the subtype. CD8+ CTLs were associated with a good prognosis, while FoxP3+ Tregs were associated with adverse outcomes in patients with breast cancer. CD8+ CTLs and FoxP3+ Tregs are potential predictive prognostic factors for patients with breast cancer. PMID: 31497220 [PubMed]
Abstract Breast cancer is the most prevalent malignant tumor and main oncologic cause of mortality in women. Although most diagnosis of breast pathology is accomplished using hematoxylin and eosin stained sections, some cases require immunohistochemistry for proper evaluation. We investigated the latter cases including distinctions between ductal and lobular carcinoma, in situ and invasive carcinoma, typical ductal hyperplasia and atypical ductal hyperplasia/ductal carcinoma in situ, papillary and spindle cell lesion assessment, metastasis evaluation, and assessment of prognostic and therapy markers. E-cadherin is...
Conclusion: Glutathione-S-Transferase P1 Promotor methylation plays a role in breast cancer development. PMID: 31450928 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: The high consistency between the features of primary DCIS and those of subsequent IBC (in the rare but not negligible cases of local failure) should be borne in mind when considering the therapeutic options. Treatment de-escalation and accrual of patients for active surveillance trials could be appropriate for luminal-like precursors. PMID: 31446852 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Evaluation of breast cancer biomarker status by 4-plex ddPCR was highly concordant with IHC in this study.
Publication date: October 2019Source: Molecular Immunology, Volume 114Author(s): Mohsen Arabpour, Reza Rasolmali, Abdoul-Rasoul Talei, Fereshteh Mehdipour, Abbas GhaderiAbstractB lymphocytes with regulatory or effector functions synthesize granzyme B (GZMB). We investigated the frequency and phenotype of GZMB-producing B cells in breast tumor-draining lymph nodes (TDLNs). Mononuclear cells were isolated from 48 axillary lymph nodes and were stimulated with anti-BCR (B cell receptor), recombinant interleukin (IL)-21 and CD40 L alone or in combination. Flow cytometry was used to evaluate the expression of GZMB in B ce...
