PURPOSE The arginine to proline substitution at codon 72 represents a common aminoacidic polymorphism of the p53 protein. Recent data suggest that p53 codon 72 may modulate the response to cancer therapy. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the p53 codon 72 genotype, evaluated in the tumor tissue and in the disease-free lymph node, is(More)
AIMS To investigate SOCS-2 (suppressor of cytokine signalling 2) protein expression in breast carcinoma samples in relation to biopathological parameters and survival. METHODS A polyclonal antibody against SOCS-2 was used to study 50 archival breast carcinoma samples, collected from 1993 to 1995. The presence of SOCS-2 protein was investigated in relation(More)
(-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) and chemotherapeutic agents cotreatment can improve cytotoxicity against cancer cells. We showed that EGCG and the rexinoid 6-OH-11-O-hydroxyphenanthrene (IIF), given together, were cytotoxic toward MCF-7, MCF-7TAM, and MDA-MB-231, three breast carcinoma cell lines showing different molecular characteristics.
