Cyclin D1 and PSA act as good prognostic and clinicopathological indicators for breast cancer.
This study aimed to evaluate immunohistochemical expression of cyclin D1 and PSA in breast carcinoma and their relation to prognosis. It includes 79 specimens of breast invasive duct carcinoma. Overall survival time was available for all patients. There is a statistically significant association between positive PSA expression and lower tumor stage, nodal stage and tumor grade and between negative PSA expression and presence of metastasis (P value = .05, 0.01, 0.03 and 0.011, respectively). There is a highly statistically significant association between low percentage of cyclin D1 expression (

ery Both non eco- and eco-friendly carriers were utilized for accelerating the dyeing rate of polyethylene terephthalate fabrics (PET) dyed with disperse dyes at 100 °C. Fastness properties of the dyed fabrics showed good and excellent results. Finally, the prepared disperse dyes 1 and 2 showed potent anti-tumor cytotoxic activity in vitro using MCF-7 cells (human breast cancer cell line), HepG-2 cells (human Hepatocellular carcinoma), HCT-116 (colon carcinoma), A-549 cells (Lung carcinoma cell line), and anti-oxidant activities.
AbstractThe risk of radiotherapy-induced malignancies (RIMs) is a concern when treating Li –Fraumeni syndrome (LFS) or Li–Fraumeni Like (LFL) patients. However, the type ofTP53 pathogenic germline variant may possibly influence this risk.TP53 p.R337H mutation is particularly prevalent in Brazil. We aimed to evaluate the outcomes of patients with pathogenicTP53 variants treated for localized breast cancer in a Brazilian cohort. We evaluated retrospectively a cohort of patients with germlineTP53 pathogenic variants treated for localized breast cancer between December 1999 and October 2017. All patients were follo...
A 70-year-old female patient with a history of locally advanced breast cancer presented with a 2-month duration of persistent gait imbalance. Ten years earlier, she initially received a diagnosis of an invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast, triple negative, treated with mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and postmastectomy radiation therapy. She had been followed up without evidence of disease until the present time. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain demonstrated a lobulated enhancing mass measuring 3.6 × 2.4 × 3.6 cm involvin...
CONCLUSION: As immunohistochemical analysis lacks specificity in distinguishing primary cutaneous apocrine carcinoma from a cutaneous metastasis of breast carcinoma, detailed clinical history, breast examination, adequate treatment and follow-up are necessary to confirm a diagnosis of primary cutaneous apocrine carcinoma.

ConclusionsThe QAIs have significant value for the diagnosis and severity of lymphedema and may therefore potentially be used as an objective tool for the assessment of lymphedema.
CONCLUSIONS Our study showed that conservative breast surgery is a reliable therapy for breast cancer patients during pregnancy, with similar DFS and OS compared to nonpregnant patients. PMID: 31725704 [PubMed - in process]
Malignant mesothelioma has become the latest deadly cancer linked directly to the rescue, recovery and cleanup efforts following the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York City in 2001. The long-running threat has come to fruition. Eighteen years after Manhattan was engulfed in the asbestos-laced, toxic cloud of dust — caused primarily by the World Trade Center destruction — the first death from pleural mesothelioma attributed to 9/11 has been recorded. Nick Ursta, 52, from the southwestern part of Pennsylvania, died after a year-long battle with the rare cancer. Ursta, a construction worker and fireman by trade, w...
In a new study, patients with HR+/HER2- early stage breast cancer completed 2 years of adjuvant palbociclib with a similar toxicity profile as that observed in the metastatic setting.Annals of Oncology
ConclusionsIORT is an effective treatment option for well-selected patients with early breast cancer and can be considered for patients with lobular histology.
