BACKGROUND The TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours (TNM) staging system is the primary means of determining a prognosis for gastric adenocarcinoma (GC). However, tumor behavior in the individual patient is unpredictable and in spite of treatment advances, a classification of 'advanced stage' still portends a poor prognosis. Thus, further insights from(More)
The influence of genetic factors may contribute to the poor prognosis of breast cancer (BC) at a very young age. However BRCA1/2 mutations could not explain the majority of cases arising in these patients. MicroRNAs (miRs) have been implicated in biological processes associated with BC. Therefore, we investigated differences in miRs expression between(More)
The importance of tumor–stromal cell interactions in breast tumor progression and invasion is well established. Here, an evaluation of differential genomic profiles of carcinoma-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) compared to fibroblasts derived from tissues adjacent to fibroadenomas (NAFs) revealed altered focal adhesion pathways. These data were validated(More)
