City of Hope researchers and study authors Shiuan Chen, Ph.D., and Lynn Adams, Ph.D. discuss the results of a recent research study on the effects of blueberries on breast cancer. Chen, research f... Author: feeds Added: 08/30/2013
ConclusionsPractical difficulties in quantifying quality of life losses and healthcare expenditures owing to competing risks in life years gained can be overcome. Their inclusion can have a substantial impact on the cost-effectiveness of cancer screening programs.
Authors: Colhado Rodrigues BL, Lallo MA, Perez EC Abstract Autophagy is a natural regulatory mechanism of the cell that eliminates unnecessary and dysfunctional cellular components to maintain homeostasis. Several authors have demonstrated that this mechanism can be induced by pathological conditions as cancer. However, their role in tumor development is still a controversial issue in cancer research. Here, we discussed the most relevant findings concerning autophagy in tumor development. In this critical review performed with studies published between 2002 and 2018, we found that the main pathway involved in the a...
ConclusionKi67 is correlated with the grade of the tumor, and is not a predictor for the survival of breast cancer patients. It may predict aggressive behavior of the tumor and higher histopathological grades.
AbstractPurposeTumor inflammatory response was evaluated as a prognostic feature in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and compared with the clinical prognosticators of breast cancer and selected biomarkers of cancer cell proliferation.MethodsTNBC patients (n = 179) with complete clinical data and up to 18-year follow-up were obtained from Auria biobank, Turku University Hospital, Turku, Finland. Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) and several subtypes of inflammatory cells detected with immunohistochemistry were evaluated in different tumor compa rtments in full tissue sections and tissue microarrays.Res...
Women with schizophrenia are only half as likely as women in the general population to receive mammograms, reports ameta-analysis published inPsychiatric Services in Advance.“Lower screening rates could explain why women with schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses are found to have more advanced breast cancer at time of diagnosis,” wrote Alison Hwong, M.D., Ph.D., and colleagues at the University of California, San Francisco. “Given the high prevalence o f breast cancer and the promising prognosis of breast cancer if detected early, mammography screening is a key first step in improving diagnosi...
