A specialized CONNECTIVE TISSUE that is the main constituent of the SKELETON. The principle cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.
In humans, one of the paired regions in the anterior portion of the THORAX. The breasts consist of the MAMMARY GLANDS, the SKIN, the MUSCLES, the ADIPOSE TISSUE, and the CONNECTIVE TISSUES.
The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.
Tumors or cancer of the human BREAST.

A generic concept reflecting concern with the modification and enhancement of life attributes, e.g., physical, political, moral and social environment; the overall condition of a human life.
New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.
The state of weariness following a period of exertion, mental or physical, characterized by a decreased capacity for work and reduced efficiency to respond to stimuli.
The transfer of a neoplasm from one organ or part of the body to another remote from the primary site.
Mutant mice homozygous for the recessive gene "nude" which fail to develop a thymus. They are useful in tumor studies and studies on immune responses.
Experimental transplantation of neoplasms in laboratory animals for research purposes.
Transfer of a neoplasm from its primary site to lymph nodes or to distant parts of the body by way of the lymphatic system.
Transplantation between animals of different species.
An invasive (infiltrating) CARCINOMA of the mammary ductal system (MAMMARY GLANDS) in the human BREAST.
Cytoplasmic proteins that bind estrogens and migrate to the nucleus where they regulate DNA transcription. Evaluation of the state of estrogen receptors in breast cancer patients has become clinically important.
Pathological processes of the BREAST.
A cell surface protein-tyrosine kinase receptor that is overexpressed in a variety of ADENOCARCINOMAS. It has extensive homology to and heterodimerizes with the EGF RECEPTOR, the ERBB-3 RECEPTOR, and the ERBB-4 RECEPTOR. Activation of the erbB-2 receptor occurs through heterodimer formation with a ligand-bound erbB receptor family member.
A family of high molecular weight GTP phosphohydrolases that play a direct role in vesicle transport. They associate with microtubule bundles (MICROTUBULES) and are believed to produce mechanical force via a process linked to GTP hydrolysis. This enzyme was formerly listed as EC
Enzymes that hydrolyze GTP to GDP. EC 3.6.1.-.
The continuous remodeling of MITOCHONDRIA shape by fission and fusion in response to physiological conditions.
Proteins encoded by the mitochondrial genome or proteins encoded by the nuclear genome that are imported to and resident in the MITOCHONDRIA.
The termination of the cell's ability to carry out vital functions such as metabolism, growth, reproduction, responsiveness, and adaptability.
Semiautonomous, self-reproducing organelles that occur in the cytoplasm of all cells of most, but not all, eukaryotes. Each mitochondrion is surrounded by a double limiting membrane. The inner membrane is highly invaginated, and its projections are called cristae. Mitochondria are the sites of the reactions of oxidative phosphorylation, which result in the formation of ATP. They contain distinctive RIBOSOMES, transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER); AMINO ACYL T RNA SYNTHETASES; and elongation and termination factors. Mitochondria depend upon genes within the nucleus of the cells in which they reside for many essential messenger RNAs (RNA, MESSENGER). Mitochondria are believed to have arisen from aerobic bacteria that established a symbiotic relationship with primitive protoeukaryotes. (King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
Promotion and protection of the rights of patients, frequently through a legal process.
A bony outgrowth on the lower surface of the CALCANEUS. Though often presenting along with plantar fasciitis (FASCIITIS, PLANTAR), they are not considered causally related.
Radiographic examination of the breast.
Connective tissue cells of an organ found in the loose connective tissue. These are most often associated with the uterine mucosa and the ovary as well as the hematopoietic system and elsewhere.
A malignant neoplasm made up of epithelial cells tending to infiltrate the surrounding tissues and give rise to metastases. It is a histological type of neoplasm but is often wrongly used as a synonym for "cancer." (From Dorland, 27th ed)
A subspecialty of internal medicine concerned with the study of neoplasms.
Calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They are important in the formation of ADHERENS JUNCTIONS between cells. Cadherins are classified by their distinct immunological and tissue specificities, either by letters (E- for epithelial, N- for neural, and P- for placental cadherins) or by numbers (cadherin-12 or N-cadherin 2 for brain-cadherin). Cadherins promote cell adhesion via a homophilic mechanism as in the construction of tissues and of the whole animal body.
A plant genus of the family FABACEAE. The gums and tanning agents obtained from Acacia are called GUM ARABIC. The common name of catechu is more often used for Areca catechu (ARECA).
Anchoring points where the CYTOSKELETON of neighboring cells are connected to each other. They are composed of specialized areas of the plasma membrane where bundles of the ACTIN CYTOSKELETON attach to the membrane through the transmembrane linkers, CADHERINS, which in turn attach through their extracellular domains to cadherins in the neighboring cell membranes. In sheets of cells, they form into adhesion belts (zonula adherens) that go all the way around a cell.
A single-pass transmembrane glycoproteins that mediate CALCIUM-dependent CELL ADHESION and are core components of DESMOSOMES.
Adherence of cells to surfaces or to other cells.
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
Progenitor cells from which all blood cells derive.
Transplantation between individuals of the same species. Usually refers to genetically disparate individuals in contradistinction to isogeneic transplantation for genetically identical individuals.
Transplantation of an individual's own tissue from one site to another site.
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.

  • In a discovery that may lead to a new treatment for breast cancer that has spread to the bone, a Princeton University research team has unraveled a mystery about how these tumors take root. (
  • Cancer cells often travel throughout the body and cause new tumors in individuals with advanced breast cancer -- a process called metastasis -- commonly resulting in malignant bone tumors. (
  • Because CSCs are characterized from various types of cancers, CD44 has been a useful marker for enriching CSCs not only for breast tumors but also a variety of other epithelial tumor models ( 3 - 17 ). (
  • There is circumstantial evidence that CSCs may be involved in metastasis of solid tumors, including breast cancer. (
  • Because of genetic differences in mouse tumors or genetic changes that occur with establishment of cell lines, the commonly used models to study metastases, including those involving human cancer cell lines, mouse tumor models, and/or metastatic tumor models via bloodstream injections, do not fully recapitulate human disease ( 9 , 23 - 25 ). (
  • Prolactin is the hormone that is primarily responsible for the production of milk during pregnancy, and earlier research by Clevenger has also linked it to the growth of breast tumors. (
  • Breast tumors are routinely evaluated using mammograms and ultrasound before surgery. (
  • High levels of LincIN expression are frequently observed in tumors compared to adjacent normal tissues, and are strongly associated with aggressive breast cancer. (
  • Chromosome 5 imbalance mapping in breast tumors from BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers and sporadic breast tumors. (
  • Chemotherapy drugs used to treat Toni Wild's breast tumors caused her heart to fail. (
  • Studying mice with breast tumors transplanted from patients, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and Baylor College of Medicine have analyzed the proteins present in these tumors. (
  • While most of these tumor models recapitulated specific types of breast cancer, Ding said the scientists were surprised to see that two of the 24 tumors evolved into a completely different type of cancer after transplantation into the mice. (
  • Zurich-based researchers recently came up with a more effective ultrasound technique to distinguish between benign and malignant breast tumors. (
  • Black women in the United States are more likely than white women to have breast tumors that are ER-negative. (
  • Black women are more likely than other women to develop breast tumors that do not respond to common hormone-based treatments. (
  • Research by Yibin Kang, an associate professor of molecular biology at Princeton, has uncovered the exact mechanism in individuals with advanced breast cancer that lets traveling tumor cells disrupt normal bone growth in cases when the cancer spreads to the bone. (
  • In findings that will be published online in the journal Cancer Cell on Feb. 3, the team's research shows that breast tumor cells are able to give bone cells the wrong instructions through a process known as cell signaling -- with disastrous effects for the patient. (
  • People who have particular mutations in this tumor-suppressor gene are at increased risk of developing certain types of breast cancer. (
  • To examine the role of breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs) in metastasis, we generated human-in-mouse breast cancer orthotopic models using patient tumor specimens, labeled with optical reporter fusion genes. (
  • These models recapitulate human cancer features not captured with previous models, including spontaneous metastasis in particular, and provide a useful platform for studies of breast tumor initiation and progression. (
  • We previously showed that RES alters the cell cycle and induces apoptosis in MCF-7 breast tumor cells by interfering with the estrogen receptor (ERaalpha)-dependent phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway. (
  • Thus, interactions of cadherins with their roles in tumor suppression and oncogenic transformation can be beneficial in providing valuable insights for breast cancer diagnosis and therapeutics development. (
  • A role for MSP/Ron in breast cancer has recently been elucidated, wherein this pathway regulates tumor growth, angiogenesis, and metastasis. (
  • Here, we review the recent literature surrounding MSP/Ron function in tumor cells, inflammatory cells, and osteoclasts - cell types that often coexist in breast tumor microenvironments. (
  • This inhibition correlated to an increase in mammary tumor latency, which means they were able to slow or completely halt the growth of breast cancer cells. (
  • Our studies provide clear evidence to support LincIN as a new regulator of tumor progression-metastasis at both transcriptional and translational levels and as a promising prognostic biomarker for breast cancer. (
  • Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease with known expression-defined tumor subtypes. (
  • In 1998, Wild learned a new tumor had developed in her other breast. (
  • The roles of estrogen receptor α (ERα) in initiating tumor development in breast cancer, regulating progression and determining therapeutic protocols and efficacy are well documented [ 1 ],[ 2 ]. (
  • The pathology report clearly stated that the tumor involved the surgical margins. (
  • The researchers studied 24 tumor samples from breast cancer patients after the samples were transplanted into mice. (
  • They also showed that drugs against a type of breast tumor called HER2 positive breast cancer - such as the dual ERBB2/EGFR inhibitor lapatinib - potentially could benefit more patients than currently receive them, if analysis of the tumor proteins is taken into consideration. (
  • Here, we determine CLN3 expression in non-tumor vs. tumor samples from fresh and formalin-fixed/paraffin-embedded (FFPE) breast tissue and analyze the association between CLN3 overexpression and different clinicopathological characteristics of breast cancer patients. (
  • CLN3 mRNA is overexpressed in tumor vs. non-tumor breast tissue from FFPE and fresh samples, as well as in mouse MCF7 breast cancer compared to MCF10A normal cells. (
  • Breast cancer in Lebanon manifests larger tumor size, more lymph node involvement, and higher tumor grades ( 7 , 8 ). (
  • Starr Mautner, M.D. , a breast surgeon at Miami Cancer Institute , performed the surgery to remove the tumor and exchange the implants Mrs. Prolow had received after her first operation. (
  • But until now it wasn't clear how MDSCs are recruited to the primary breast tumor, and how they contributed to its progression and spread. (
  • Staging (the size of the cancer and how far it's spread) for triple negative breast cancer is the same as for other breast cancers. (
  • Many breast cancers have receptors on the surface of the cancer cells for the hormones oestrogen and progesterone, and less commonly for a protein called HER2. (
  • Women with breast cancers that have high levels of HER2 receptors are given a drug called trastuzumab (Herceptin ® ) . (
  • And most triple negative breast cancers are basal cell cancers. (
  • Breast cancers that depend on hormones to grow are linked with risk factors to do with having children, such as how old a woman was when she had her first child. (
  • Most breast cancers caused by BRCA1 are triple negative. (
  • The mammogram can detect small changes in breast tissue which may show cancers that are too small to be felt either by the woman herself or by a doctor. (
  • Taking hormonal drugs for up to 15 years reduces the risk of breast cancers coming back," BBC News reports. (
  • A new study looked at 1,918 postmenopausal women with what is known as oestrogen receptor-positive (or ER+) breast cancers - where cancer growth is stimulated by the hormone oestrogen. (
  • Most breast cancers are classified as carcinomas , which is cancer of the epithelial cells that line the tissues in the breast. (
  • Inflammatory breast cancer affects only 1-3% of all breast cancers. (
  • Triple negative breast cancer occurs in 15% of breast cancers and refers to the absence of estrogen, progesterone, and human epidermal growth factor receptors, which limit treatment options (Turkman, Opong, Harris, and Knobl, 2015). (
  • [2] It is believed that in 2012 that nearly 1.7 million new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed, which accounts for about 25% of all new cancers in women. (
  • Most breast cancers express the estrogen receptor (ER) receptor and are negative for the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) receptor. (
  • However, a subset of ER+/HER2- breast cancers, mostly corresponding to the genomic luminal B genotype, are resistant to hormonal manipulations from the outset of therapies. (
  • Importantly, the majority of these disease-associated SNPs lie within intergenic regions and within introns of protein-coding genes, suggesting that undiscovered RNA transcripts such as lncRNAs, may be responsible for the risk in a subset of breast cancers. (
  • Immune cells called myeloid-derived immunosuppressor cells (MDSCs) play a key role in the progression and aggressiveness of triple-negative breast cancers, according to new research led by Penn Vet scientists. (
  • About 15 percent of breast cancers are classified as triple-negative, lacking receptors for estrogen, progesterone, and Her2. (
  • Generally, any patient diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 50 is a reasonable candidate for genetic testing, Ms. Peshkin said. (
  • COLUMBUS, Ohio New evidence suggests that the genetic changes leading to breast cancer occur first in the epithelium of breast tissue, and then are followed by corresponding alterations in the surrounding stroma. (
  • Nonetheless, results from studies that evaluated associations between the genetic variants and breast cancer risk have been inconsistent ( 10 , 11 ). (
  • 12 ), the effect on breast cancer risk of certain genetic variants may become detectable only in the presence of specific environmental factors. (
  • We also propose a genetic model of multi-step carcinogenesis for the breast involving the epithelial and stromal compartments and note that genetic alterations occur in the epithelial compartments as the earlier steps followed by LOH in the stromal compartments. (
  • Our study strongly suggests that interactions between breast epithelial and stromal compartments might play a critical role in breast carcinogenesis and several genetic alterations in both epithelial and stromal compartments are required for breast tumour growth and progression. (
  • The presence of the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes and other genetic mutations also increase the risk for breast cancer. (
  • Women who are at high risk for breast cancer due to genetic factors, radiation, or certain syndromes should get yearly mammograms and MRIs . (
  • If you have a family history of breast cancer, it's a good idea to talk to your doctor and see if reaching out to a genetic counselor is a good idea. (
  • Genetic testing typically involves a simple blood draw or saliva sample. (
  • Franciscan Health is staffed with a genetic counselor who can help you identify your hereditary risk of developing breast cancer. (
  • What does genetic testing involve? (
  • In the present study, we explored the association between genetic variants within these ERE-associated sequences and breast cancer progression. (
  • Twenty-two of the transplanted samples retained their genetic and proteomic identities as specific types of breast cancer . (
  • There is still around 50% of the familial breast cancer (BC) cases with an undefined genetic cause, here we have used next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to identify new BC susceptibility genes. (
  • We assessed the interplay between 70 single nucleotide polymorphisms identified by genetic fine-scale mapping of susceptibility loci and 11 epidemiological breast cancer risk factors in relation to breast cancer. (
  • She underwent lumpectomy and then, when she got the information back from the genetic testing, she was able to have a little time to discern what this all meant and then she went forward to have the prophylactic mastectomies, which are clearly the best treatment to reduce her risk of ever developing breast cancer [again] by at least 90%," says Brooks. (
  • Within these regions, researchers know there are one or more genetic changes that affect the risk of developing cancer, but rarely are they able to pinpoint the specific variants or genes involved. (
  • Of the newly-discovered genetic variants, a third predispose women towards developing hormone-responsive breast cancer, the type of disease found in four out of five breast cancer patients, which respond to hormonal treatments such as tamoxifen. (
  • 15% of the genetic variants predispose women to the rarer type, estrogen-receptor-negative breast cancer. (
  • The remaining genetic variants play a role in both types of breast cancer. (
  • While each genetic variant only increases the risk of developing breast cancer by a very small amount, the researchers say that added together, these will allow them to 'fine tune' genetic testing and give women a much clearer picture of their genetic risk. (
  • Several variants of fibrocystic breast changes may be distinguished and these may have different causes and genetic predispositions. (
  • Some research studies look at the long-term effects of breast cancer treatment on recurrence and other health issues. (
  • Others study quality of life after treatment, the benefits of complementary therapies and the effect of lifestyle factors on breast cancer recurrence. (
  • Do statins cut breast cancer recurrence? (
  • The news is based on the findings of a large Danish study that looked for an association between the use of statins and the recurrence of breast cancer . (
  • This cohort study examined the association between statin use and breast cancer recurrence in a cohort of Danish women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. (
  • The adjusted recurrence risk of breast cancer among women who did not use statins was 0.302 (3,170 recurrences). (
  • The main outcome of interest was disease-free survival, defined as time from randomisation to breast cancer recurrence. (
  • Exercise as it relates to Disease/Can exercise reduce insulin to reduce breast cancer recurrence? (
  • The target study group, African American breast cancer survivors under the age of 70, was of great importance as there was limited research on recurrence and obesity after diagnosis for such a high-risk group [1] . (
  • Deaths due to breast cancer or recurrence of breast cancer were defined as the respective events of interest, and the hazard ratios of individual SNPs were estimated based on the Cox proportional hazards model. (
  • This randomized phase III trial studies how well aspirin works in preventing the cancer from coming back (recurrence) in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) breast cancer after chemotherapy, surgery, and/or radiation therapy. (
  • Giving aspirin may reduce the rate of cancer recurrence in patients with breast cancer. (
  • The BRCA1 gene, which is officially known as the breast cancer 1, early onset, gene, is well-known to be expressed in breast tissue. (
  • To confirm the diagnosis, serologic testing and tissue confirmation of the breast mass were performed. (
  • You will have a small piece of breast tissue removed (biopsy) to test for the receptors. (
  • The most important test is removing a small piece of tissue (biopsy) from the breast. (
  • Invasive ductal carcinoma is the most common type, which starts at the milk duct and spreads to the fatty tissue of the breast. (
  • A stereotactic biopsy is a type of biopsy that can help to diagnose cancerous cells in breast tissue. (
  • Using a mammography machine, a radiologist uses two images of the breast tissue to take a sample of tissue for testing. (
  • If tests show an unusual mass, or a routine mammogram detects changes in breast tissue, it is important to find out if they are signs of cancer. (
  • A stereotactic breast biopsy can help physicians to analyze tissue samples to understand the health of the breast better. (
  • Some women choose to have a mastectomy (removal of all of the breast tissue) without reconstruction. (
  • In the second stage we will go in through the same incision on the breast, remove the tissue expander and place implants. (
  • A mammogram is a great test to identify abnormalities within the breast tissue that could be cancerous. (
  • CerS6 ), delta(4)-desaturase sphingolipid 2 ( DEGS2 ), and acidic sphingomyelinase ( SMPD1 ) displayed higher expression levels in breast cancer vs. control tissue, whereas ceramide galactosyltransferase ( UGT8 ) was underexpressed in breast cancer samples. (
  • Plastic surgeons from Cleveland Clinic Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Center have perfected breast reduction techniques to effectively remove excess tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. (
  • A mastopexy raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast. (
  • To help prepare for a mastopexy, cosmetic surgeons at Cleveland Clinic Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Center may recommend a baseline mammogram before surgery and another mammographic examination some months after surgery to help detect post-operative changes in your breast tissue. (
  • He explains that there's no clear line where breast tissue ends. (
  • When you're in the operating room, it's not like you can look and say, 'All that yellow tissue is breast tissue and all that white tissue is fat. (
  • So you try and take all the tissue out that you can, but you can leave isolated breast cells underneath the skin . (
  • In cases where skin and glandular tissue must be removed, your surgeon will make an anchor-shaped incision before removing tissue and then reposition skin to lift the areola and create new breast contour. (
  • Possible risks of the breast reduction procedure include infection, fluid accumulation, injury to skin, rippling or bagginess of skin, asymmetry, pigmentation changes, and excessive scarring if tissue was cut away. (
  • Male breast reductions involve removal of fatty tissue by liposuction and removal of excess glandular tissue by making a small incision near the areola. (
  • BREAST CANCER is a cancer which develops from the breast tissue. (
  • The changes in fibrocystic breast disease are characterised by the appearance of fibrous tissue and a lumpy, cobblestone texture in the breasts. (
  • There is preliminary evidence that iodine deficiency contributes to fibrocystic breast changes by enhancing the sensitivity of breast tissue to estrogen. (
  • Breast cancer spreads to the bone in 70 to 80 percent of patients with advanced breast cancer, and it can also spread to the brain, lung and liver. (
  • Explain to interested patients that this study found a high prevalence of causes of bone loss besides cancer therapies in postmenopausal women with breast cancer. (
  • MAYWOOD, Ill., Nov. 21 -- When assessing bone loss in postmenopausal breast cancer patients, clinicians should look beyond the effects of aromatase inhibitors and other therapies, researchers here said. (
  • Out of 64 breast cancer patients with osteopenia or osteoporosis, 78.1% had a potential cause of bone loss secondary to treatment, aging, or menopause, a prevalence similar to that in women without cancer (77%), Pauline Camacho, M.D., of Loyola University Medical Center, and colleagues reported in the Nov. 20 issue the Journal of Clinical Oncology . (
  • The results of our study support the recommendation that postmenopausal patients with breast cancer should undergo metabolic bone evaluation, including a baseline dual energy x-ray absorptiometry scan, as well as a work-up for secondary causes of bone loss," the researchers said. (
  • There was a trend toward a higher rate of vitamin D deficiency in the control patients (51.1% versus 37.5%, P =0.062), even though past studies have reported higher rates of the deficiency in breast cancer patients. (
  • As expected, use of aromatase inhibitors, previous chemotherapy, and use of GnRH analogs were significantly higher in the breast cancer patients ( P ≤0.007 for all). (
  • Future studies, they said, should examine the prevalence of secondary causes of bone loss in a larger population of breast cancer patients and determine the effects of treating those causes on bone mineral density and fracture risk. (
  • Thank you for helping to provide hope, support and community to our patients and for being part of our Breast Friends community. (
  • Breast CSCs (BCSCs) possess an "invasiveness" gene signature that correlates with poor overall survival and shortened metastasis-free survival in cancer patients ( 20 ). (
  • Clevenger says he hopes what's being done in the labs will eventually translate to the patient and becomes another treatment option for breast cancer patients. (
  • 50% and heart failure symptoms)] between anthracycline and non-anthracycline chemotherapy treated node-positive breast cancer patients in a long-term follow-up. (
  • Analysis of the primary endpoint will involve a comparison of the CMF-treated patients versus the pooled anthracycline treated patients (EC and HEC). (
  • Because FDA-approved drugs are available to inhibit the action of CypA, translation of these findings to breast cancer patients should be rapid," said Clevenger, interim associate director for basic research, member of the Cancer Cell Signaling research program and Carolyn Wingate Endowed Chair in Cancer Research at VCU Massey Cancer Center. (
  • The purpose of this study is to test whether patients undergoing a breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) before breast surgery will have better results after the surgery. (
  • Importantly, analysis of TCGA data further suggest that high expression of LincIN is associated with poor overall survival in patients with breast cancer ( P = 0.044 and P = 0.011 after adjustment for age). (
  • To decrease the risk of late toxicities in Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) patients treated with radiation therapy (RT) (HL), involved field radiation therapy (IFRT) has largely replaced the extended fields. (
  • Earlier this year, the American Heart Association issued a scientific statement addressing heart disease in breast cancer patients. (
  • However, large sample and representative population-based studies with homogeneous breast cancer patients and well-matched controls are warranted to confirm this finding. (
  • Patients with relatively small breasts and minimal sagging are candidates for a modified breast lift. (
  • The ERE-associated sequences throughout the whole genome that have been demonstrated to bind ERα in vivo were blasted against online information from SNP data sets and 54 SNPs located adjacent to estrogen-responsive genes were selected for genotyping in two independent cohorts of breast cancer patients: 779 patients in the initial screening stage and another 888 in the validation stage. (
  • However, not all patients with the same ERα status manifest the same cancer progression or response to hormone therapy, and individual variations in breast cancer progression have remained an issue of particular concern. (
  • A total of 13 studies (16,349 BC patients and 20,872 case-free controls) were involved in this meta-analysis. (
  • Dendreon Corporation published results from a Phase 1 study f NEUVENGE, an investigational active cellular immunotherapy for breast cancer patients. (
  • Patients with smaller breasts and minimal sagging may be candidates for a mastopexy procedure that involves smaller incisions than a standard breast lift requires. (
  • Is Applegate's approach to breast cancer one that would work for other breast cancer patients? (
  • In addition, in its second year as a national Komen Race for the Cure series sponsor, the Energizer ReTreat mobile spa will travel to 20 communities, stopping at local cancer centers and Race for the Cure events to provide free manicures and massages to breast cancer patients, survivors and caregivers. (
