Women treated for breast cancer are at increased risk of developing pulmonary nodules which could represent new primary lung carcinomas or metastatic breast carcinoma. The FNA biopsy is frequently the first diagnostic choice in determining the primary site of the tumor. Estrogen receptor (ER) positivity in diagnostic tissue is generally used to favor breast over lung primary. However, the recent studies have shown a wide range of ER antibody cross reactivity with lung adenocarcinoma. We studied the frequency of ER expression in cytology samples of lung adenocarcinoma using antibodies to three different ER clones.

Cervical adenocarcinomas are believed to lose estrogen response on the basis of no expression of a nuclear estrogen receptor such as ERα in clinical pathology. Here, we demonstrated that cervical ade...
Expression of estrogen receptor α in breast cancer is essential for estrogen-dependent growth and partially determines the breast cancer subtype. In premenopausal women, expression of estrogen-regula...
ZBTB7A, a member of the POZ/BTB and Krüppel (POK) family of transcription factors, has been shown to have a context-dependent role in cancer development and progression. The role of ZBTB7A in estroge...
Triple Negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a subtype of breast cancer that lacks the expression of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2. TNBC accoun...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of estrogen receptor (ER) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) expression levels in Cellprep® (CP).
The purpose of this study is to assess clinical outcomes after Letrozole treatment according to the estrogen receptor expression in postmenopausal women with hormone receptor positive brea...
Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecological malignancy in the western world and its incidence is expected to increase in the coming years due to obesity. Major treatment modalities...
Most of HLA-A2 melanomas express Melan-A/MART-1 antigen and are recognized by tumor reactive Melan-A specific T lymphocytes. By using blood samples from HLA-A2 melanoma patients (stage III...
This randomized clinical trial studies tamoxifen citrate in treating premenopausal women with estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer. Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer ...
In this study, we will establish a workflow to generate unique patterns of the donor-reactive T cell repertoire using mixed lymphocyte reactions to select alloreactive T cell clones prior ...
One of the ESTROGEN RECEPTORS that has marked affinity for ESTRADIOL. Its expression and function differs from, and in some ways opposes, ESTROGEN RECEPTOR BETA.
Compounds and drugs that bind to and block or inhibit the activation of ESTROGEN RECEPTORS.
One of the ESTROGEN RECEPTORS that has greater affinity for ISOFLAVONES than ESTROGEN RECEPTOR ALPHA does. There is great sequence homology with ER alpha in the DNA-binding domain but not in the ligand binding and hinge domains.
One of the SELECTIVE ESTROGEN RECEPTOR MODULATORS with tissue-specific activities. Tamoxifen acts as an anti-estrogen (inhibiting agent) in the mammary tissue, but as an estrogen (stimulating agent) in cholesterol metabolism, bone density, and cell proliferation in the ENDOMETRIUM.
A second generation selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) used to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It has estrogen agonist effects on bone and cholesterol metabolism but behaves as a complete estrogen antagonist on mammary gland and uterine tissue.
