J Oncol. 2021 Oct 8;2021:9657071. doi: 10.1155/2021/9657071. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTBreast cancer is a heterogeneous disease in which genetic factors are involved in disease worsening and higher mortality. Epidemiological and clinical research revealed that breast cancer incidence continues to rise. 100 histopathologically confirmed untreated newly diagnosed cases of invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) of breast and 100 healthy subjects were involved and blood samples were collected in non-EDTA plain vials. Serum was separated by centrifugation, total RNA was extracted from serum, and cDNA synthesis was done to study the miR...

na-Dzerve Normalization of gene expression using internal controls or reference genes (RGs) has been the method of choice for standardizing the technical variations in reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reactions (RT-qPCR). Conventionally, ACTB and GAPDH have been used as reference genes despite evidence from literature discouraging their use. Hence, in the present study we identified and investigated novel reference genes in SK-BR-3, an HER2-enriched breast cancer cell line. Transcriptomic data of 82 HER2-E breast cancer samples from TCGA database were analyzed to identify twelve novel genes with stab...

ConclusionA novel HER2-targeting ADC combined with immune checkpoint inhibitors can achieve remarkable effects in mice and elicit long-lasting immune protection in a hHER2+  murine breast cancer model. This study provides insights into the efficacy of RC48 therapeutic activity and a rationale for potential therapeutic combination strategies with immunotherapy.

a Antonella Pietragalla Breast cancer represents the first cause of cancer worldwide and the leading cause of cancer mortality for women. Therefore, new therapies are needed to improve the prognosis of women diagnosed with this disease. In this review, we summarize the new drug indications for the treatment of breast cancer approved by European Medicines Agency between January 2015 and June 2021. In particular, we analyzed the clinical trials results leading to approvals and their update (when available), according to setting (localized and locally advanced or metastatic) and clinical features (hormone receptor posit...

J Cell Mol Med. 2021 Oct 15. doi: 10.1111/jcmm.16946. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBreast cancer, a hormone-dependent tumour, generally includes four molecular subtypes (luminal A, luminal B, HER2 enriched and triple-negative) based on oestrogen receptor, progesterone receptor and human epidermal growth factor receptor-2. Multiple hormones in the body regulate the development of breast cancer. Endocrine therapy is one of the primary treatments for hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer, but endocrine resistance is the primary clinical cause of treatment failure. Prolactin (PRL) is a protein hormone secreted by the pituit...
