Cell kinetics is a predictive parameter of breast-cancer aggressiveness, and mutations occurring in mammary tumorigenesis may favor uncontrolled cell proliferation. In this study, cell kinetics, clinico-pathological characteristics and genetic alterations at the int-2, bcl-1, c-myc, c-erbB-2, and DF3 loci were analyzed and correlated in 54 primary breast(More)

Herein we report the results of the first round of the program from three municipalities (Giugliano,(More)
