Comparison of invasive micropapillary and invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast: a matched cohort study.
CONCLUSION: The IMPC group showed poorer recurrence-free survival outcomes than the IDC group. A mass with calcification on mammography were associated with poor RFS. PMID: 30897929 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
We reported here that plakoglobin, as a key component in cell adhesion, can promote collective metastasis through facilitating IMPC clusters formation. In comparing the clinicopathological features of 451 IMPC patients and 282 IDC-NST patients, our results showed that tumor emboli were significantly higher in IMPC patients and were associated with a high frequency of metastasis. Both in vitro and in vivo data showed overexpression of plakoglobin in both the cell membrane and the cytoplasm of IMPC clusters. When plakoglobin was knocked down in IMPC cell models, the tumor cell clusters were depolymerized. Using mouse models,...

Authors: Oh SW, Lim HS, Lee JS, Moon SM, Park MH Abstract The development of ectopic breast tissue is attributable to the failure of primitive mammary tissue to regress after the development of the mammary ridge, except at pectoral breast sites, and is most often evident in the axillae. Several benign and malignant breast diseases have been reported in ectopic axillary breast tissues. The most common cancerous pathology of ectopic breast tissue is invasive ductal carcinoma. Ectopic breast cancer presenting with simultaneous primary cancer of the pectoral breast is extremely rare. Herein, we report an invasive micro...
CONCLUSION IMPC is a rare, clinically aggressive variant of invasive ductal carcinoma. Owing to its aggressive clinical behaviors, surgeons should readily recognize the morphology of IMPC.
This report provides evidence to assist in the diagnosis and treatment for this rare manifestation. PMID: 28585003 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Jagged1, by modulating TAMs infiltration, is associated with a less favorable prognosis for patients with IMPC. Our results have important implications for therapies targeting Jagged1-Notch signaling and re-educating TAMs polarization for patients with IMPC.
ConclusionsSomatic mutations affecting PI3K pathway genes were found to be highly prevalent in infiltrating epitheliosis, suggesting that these lesions may be neoplastic rather than hyperplastic. The landscape of somatic genetic alterations found in infiltrating epitheliosis is similar to that of radial scars/CSLs, suggesting that infiltrating epitheliosis may represent one end of this spectrum of lesions.
ConclusionSUVmax may be valuable for predicting the prognosis of breast cancer. Both ADC and SUVmax are useful to predict vascular invasion. J. Magn. Reson. Imaging 2015.
Conclusions .- Although the numbers are small, our findings raise further awareness of the significance between histologic type and grade, and RS in breast cancer. In some special histologic types of breast cancer, particularly those considered to follow either an excellent or poor clinical course by histology alone, it is unclear whether the ODXRS results are as meaningful as in carcinomas of no special type. Further investigation with higher numbers and outcome data is needed. PMID: 26619027 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsSomatic mutations affecting PI3K pathway genes were found to be highly prevalent in infiltrating epitheliosis, suggesting that these lesions may be neoplastic rather than hyperplastic. The landscape of somatic genetic alterations found in infiltrating epitheliosis is similar to that of radial scars/complex sclerosing lesions, suggesting that infiltrating epitheliosis may represent one end of this spectrum of lesions.This article is protected by copyright.
