This project is a pilot study designed to investigate transcriptional regulation in breast cancer. Although the main focus of the present study will be triple negative breast cancer where all of the clinically relevant receptors - estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and herceptin (HER2) - are absent, all breast tissue biospecimens, including normal and mammary dysplasia, stored in the UAMS Tissue bank, procured from outside collaborators or purchased from commercial vendors will eventually be investigated. We will use high throughput molecular profiling techniques such as microarrays and next generation sequencing to correlate gene expression and gene expression regulation with clinical parameters such as tumor size, time to relapse and overall survival.

About 5% of breast cancers are metastatic at diagnosis and 20-30% of localized breast cancer become secondarily metastatic.Thanks to recent therapeutic advances, the median survival ranges...
This trial will test a decision support web based intervention for women at increased risk for breast cancer due to breast density and other risk factors (age, race/ethnicity, family histo...
In order to determine the acceptability of a breast cancer-specific cognitive behavioral therapy intervention, as well as to obtain preliminary data to assess efficacy in managing symptoms...
A randomized trial from the British National Health Service found that supervised exercise benefits women with early stage breast cancer with improved functional and psychological benefit ...
1. The purpose of the study is to test the effectiveness of a new mail-based intervention for breast cancer survivors compared with standard lifestyle management and no-treatment...
Body image interventions for breast cancer survivors are lacking in empirical support. Examining existing research on effective body image interventions for women in midlife more broadly may provide u...
Physical activity has been known to improve survival and quality of life of patients with breast cancer. To find factors associated with physical activity, we analyzed the dataset of the multicenter c...
Risk assessment and discussion of lifestyle in primary care are crucial elements of breast cancer prevention and risk reduction. Our objective was to evaluate the impact of a breast cancer risk assess...
The current study assessed the feasibility of a mentored home-based vegetable gardening intervention and examined changes in health-related outcomes among breast cancer survivors (BCS).
The accumulating evidence indicates that weight gain in adulthood is more predictive of breast cancer risk than absolute body weight. However, the relative impact of timing of weight gain in adulthood...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
