In the study, we analyzed role of p53 in predicting outcome in visceral metastasis breast cancer (VMBC) patients. 97 consecutive VMBC patients were studied. P53 positivity rate was 29.9%. In the p53-negative group, median disease free survival (DFS), and time from primary breast cancer diagnosis to death (OS1), time from metastases to death (OS2) were 25,… (More)
In this paper, we consider infinite sums of the reciprocals of the Fibonacci numbers. Then applying the floor function to the reciprocals of this sums, we obtain a new identity involving the Fibonacci numbers.
Spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) is a diploid dioecious plant with a pair of homomorphic sex chromosomes X and Y. Plant DNA methylation, a known process for genome epigenetic modification, regulates gene expression in plants. To explore the effects of DNA methylation on spinach growth and sexual development, spinach seeds were treated with the demethylating… (More)
In this study, we compared the clinicopathologic characteristics between the bilateral breast cancer (BiBC) and unilateral breast cancer (UBC) and investigated the role of CXC chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4) in BiBC. 48 BiBC and 1650 UBC were studied. We found BiBC patients were associated with family history of cancer, invasive lobular histology in the… (More)
The effects of topical GM1 ganglioside on crushed rat sciatic nerve regeneration were studied in this presentation. Thirty-four rats, with 68 bilateral sciatic nerves, were divided into seven groups: one group of four rats for measurement of normal motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV), three as controls, and another three in the GM1-treated groups.… (More)
