Dose profile evaluation in digital breast tomosynthesis exposition using radiochromic film.

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) is an efficient method to diagnose changes in the breast tissues. However, it may promote some future detriment to the patient exposed in this test. The future effec...

Clinicopathological characteristics of metaplastic breast cancer - analysis of the basic immunohistochemical profile and comparison with other invasive breast cancer types.

Metaplastic breast cancer (MpBC) is a rare but aggressive type of breast cancer accounting for 0.25-1% of all diagnosed invasive breast cancers. Morphologically, it is characterized by differentiation...

Low eicosapentaenoic acid and gamma-linolenic acid levels in breast adipose tissue are associated with inflammatory breast cancer.

Since it is thought that breast adipose tissue could influence breast cancer clinical presentation, we wanted to characterize specifically the relationship between breast adipose tissue fatty acid pro...

MicroRNA and LncRNA Expression Profiles in Human Estrogen Receptor Positive Breast Cancer.

Recent studies have established non-coding RNAs, which include microRNAs and lncRNAs, are aberrantly expressed in breast cancer. In this study, we explore the expression profile of microRNAs and lncRN...
