Epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM; CD326) is a cell surface protein that is frequently expressed at high level on most solid tumor types, including prostate, breast, colon, gastric, ovarian, ...
Breast implants are medical devices that are used to augment breast size or to reconstruct the breast following mastectomy or to correct a congenital abnormality. Breast implants consist of a silico...
Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) act as estrogen receptor (ER) agonists or antagonist depending on the targeted tissue and the specific configuration of the used SERM. Effects on bone, e...
RNA interference constrains antisense lncRNA transcriptomes, and its loss during budding yeast evolution is associated with an increase in genome-wide expression of antisense lncRNAs.
(Salk Institute) Salk study shows the microRNA miR-19 helps budding adult brain cells stay on track
“There is a real need to detect cancers that are small [less than 1 cm] before they metastasize. That would be the Holy Grail.”
// Despite high expectations and extensive research and investment in the last decade, technological options are still in developing stages and key resources for algal growth are still too onerous for...
Women diagnosed with breast cancer had a reduced risk of death if they ate a low-fat diet, a new study finds. But the effect was small and other studies disagree.
Even though dense breast tissue is a risk factor for breast cancer, very low mammographic breast density is associated with a worse prognosis in breast cancer patients. Patient survival is affected on...
Researchers describe how breast cancer cells challenged with a small-molecule inhibitor targeting specific invasive properties switch to an alternative mode-of-action, rendering them even more aggress...
(Reuters Health) - When women have advanced breast cancer, the amount of comfort-oriented care they receive at the end of life may depend on the color of their skin, a small U.S. study suggests.
Tumor budding is a histological phenomenon encountered in various cancers, whereby individual malignant cells and/or small clusters of malignant cells are seen in the tumor stroma. Postulated to be mi...
Tumor budding has been defined as an isolated single cancer cell or a cluster composed of fewer than 5 cancer cells scattered in the stroma. It is a strong predictor for lymph node metastasis in T1 co...
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the external auditory canal (EAC) is rare, usually presents at an advanced stage, and is a more aggressive tumor with poor prognosis. The University of Pittsburgh TNM ...
Breast conservation treatment (BCT) is the preferred modality of treatment for early breast cancer. However, a moderate proportion of women will develop deformity and those with tumours in the lower h...
Potential challenges associated with immediate small breast reconstruction include an inadequate size of the donor site, a thinner skin envelope and limited selection of implants. We present immediate...
