Extracellular-regulated kinases (ERK1, ERK2) play important roles in the malignant behaviour of breast cancer cells in vitro. In our present study, 148 clinical breast cancer samples (120 cases with follow-up data) were studied for the expression of ERK1, ERK2 and their phosphorylated forms p-ERK1 and p-ERK2 by immunoblotting, and p-ERK1/2 expression in(More)
Rb2/p130 is a member of the retinoblastoma family of proteins, consisting of Rb, Rb2 and p107, which are important negative regulators of cell cycle progression and differentiation. While Rb2 downregulation was observed in several malignant tumours including endometrial cancer, the role of p130 in breast carcinomas is still unknown. We investigated Rb2(More)
BACKGROUND Cervical screening identifies many women with low-grade abnormalities. In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that diindolylmethane (DIM) could potentially halt (cervical) carcinogenesis. We report on a randomised controlled trial of the effect of DIM in women with low-grade cervical cytological abnormalities. METHODS We conducted a pragmatic(More)
The objective of this study was to describe human papillomavirus (HPV) prevalence in South Wales in relation to age, cytology and social deprivation. This was an unlinked, prospective, anonymous, population-based study. DNA was purified from 1911 liquid-based cytology samples (mean age 37.7 years, cytology 93.2% negative, social deprivation average score(More)
