The aim of this study was to investigate selected proteomic markers of the metabolic phenotype of breast carcinomas as prognostic markers of cancer progression. For this purpose, a series of 101 breast carcinomas and 13 uninvolved breast samples were examined for quantitative differences in protein expression of mitochondrial and glycolytic markers. The(More)
Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in men in Western countries. Until the last decade, the main available therapeutic options were based on hormonal therapy. For castration-refractory prostate carcinoma, from 2004, the combination of chemotherapy with docetaxel and prednisone has shown to improve survival in this subset of patients. Many agents(More)
INTRODUCTION Gene profiling may improve prognostic accuracy in patients with early breast cancer, but this technology is not widely available. We used commercial assays for qRT-PCR to assess the performance of the gene profiles included in the 70-Gene Signature, the Recurrence Score and the Two-Gene Ratio. METHODS 153 patients with early breast cancer and(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to evaluate the prognostic and predictive value of the nucleotide excision repair-related gene GTF2H5, which is localized at the 6q24.2-26 deletion previously reported by our group to predict longer survival of high-grade serous ovarian cancer patients. METHODS In order to test if protein levels of GTF2H5 are associated with patients'(More)
BACKGROUND Gene expression profiling may improve prognostic accuracy in patients with early breast cancer. Our objective was to demonstrate that it is possible to develop a simple molecular signature to predict distant relapse. METHODS We included 153 patients with stage I-II hormonal receptor-positive breast cancer. RNA was isolated from formalin-fixed(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian carcinoma is the most important cause of gynecological cancer-related mortality in Western societies. Despite the improved median overall survival in patients receiving chemotherapy regimens such as paclitaxel and carboplatin combination, relapse still occurs in most advanced diseased patients. Increased angiogenesis is associated with(More)
Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death due to gynecological cancer and the 5th cause of death for cancer in women in Europe. Optimal management of patients with ovarian cancer needs the participation of a well-trained multidisciplinary team. In the last few years, we have observed a significant improvement in the knowledge of the molecular biology of(More)
Most GISTs have mutations in KIT or PDGFRA. Patients with advanced GIST with KIT exon 9, PDGFRA mutation or WT for KIT and PDGFRA have a worse progression-free survival (PFS) compared to patients with KIT exon 11 mutated tumors. We evaluated the immunohistochemical (IHC) expression of p-IGF1R (Y1316) and MMP3 as predictors of PFS or overall survival (OS).(More)
Bevacizumab plus weekly paclitaxel improves progression-free survival (PFS) in HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer (mBC), but its use has been questioned due to the absence of a predictive biomarker, lack of benefit in overall survival (OS) and increased toxicity. We examined the baseline tumor angiogenic-related gene expression of 60 patients with mBC(More)
BACKGROUND Bevacizumab plus taxane chemotherapy improves progression-free survival (PFS) versus taxane monotherapy in the first-line treatment of HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer (MBC) and appears promising in the second-line setting. This retrospective analysis evaluated the efficacy and safety of this combination in a real-world setting. PATIENTS(More)
