To evaluate the potential for gene-gene interaction effects in sporadic breast cancer (BC) risk, we studied combinations of the fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) rs1219648 and tumor protein 53 (TP53) rs1042522, rs1625895, and rs17878362 polymorphisms in BC patients (n=388) and healthy persons (n=275). In addition to a single-locus effect(More)
Cancer invasion and the ability of malignant tumor cells for directed migration and metastasis have remained a focus of research for many years. Numerous studies have confirmed the existence of two main patterns of cancer cell invasion: collective cell migration and individual cell migration, by which tumor cells overcome barriers of the extracellular(More)
AIM To examine the influence of combined genotypes of TP53 (exon 4, intron 3, intron 6) and XRCC1 (codon 10) on lung cancer age of onset. METHODS TP53 polymorphisms in codon 72 of exon 4 (Arg72Pro), in intron 3 (16 bp duplication), in intron 6 (G/A transition) and XRCC1 polymorphism in codon 10 (Arg399Gln) were analyzed in blood cells of 177 lung cancer(More)
It is well known that the TP53 gene considerably influences on DNA repair processes. Polymorphisms in the TP53 gene, particularly the well-known Arg72Pro in codon 72 of exon 4 (Ex4+119 G>C; rs1042522), can modify the functionality of the p53 protein and activation of DNA repair. Actually, polymorphic variants Arg and Pro were found to have different(More)
In this study, the influence of intratumoral morphological heterogeneity of breast cancer on neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) efficiency was investigated. In particular, we analysed the association of NAC response and pre- and post-NAC expression of the main multidrug resistance (MDR) genes--ABCB1, ABCC1, ABCC5, ABCG1, and ABCG2, with the presence of(More)
AIMS We have studied whether TP53 rs1042522, rs17878362, and rs1625895 alleles having a protective effect against breast cancer (BC) will be lost in tumors, whereas those allowing disease development will be retained. METHODS Analysis of TP53 polymorphisms was performed in blood leukocytes and tumors from 80 Caucasian BC patients. In addition, TP53 loss(More)
In order to understand invasive/adhesive and drug resistant properties of intratumor morphological heterogeneity of breast cancer, we compared the expression of genes responsible for the cell adhesion and for the drug resistance between distinct morphological structures of breast tumors. Tubular (hollow-like), alveolar (morula-like), trabecular, solid(More)
This study involved 525 breast cancer (BC) patients of T2-4N0-2M0 stages at the age of 35 years and older. Significant differences in clinical and pathological characteristics between premenopausal and postmenopausal BC patients were found. Mostly marked differences were shown for positive lymph node correlation with distant metastasis, multicentric growth(More)
