The uPA-mediated pathway of plasminogen activation is central to cancer metastasis. Whether uPA and PAI-1 are related to local recurrence, metastatic spread or both is not clear. We present a retrospective study of 429 primary breast cancer patients with a median follow-up of 5.1 years, in which the levels of uPA and PAI-1 in tumour extracts were analysed(More)
In 110 consecutive, medicolegal autopsies of young and middle-aged women (range 20-54 years) the breasts were examined by an extensive histopathologic method and by correlative specimen radiography. Malignancy was found in 22 women (20%) of which only one was known to have had clinical invasive breast cancer (IBC). At autopsy 2 women had IBC (2%), the(More)
The issue of whether multiple, ipsilateral or bilateral, breast carcinomas represent multiple primary tumours or dissemination of a single carcinomatous process has been difficult to resolve, especially for individual patients. We have addressed the problem by comparative genomic hybridisation analysis of 26 tumours from 12 breast cancer patients with(More)
Cytogenetic analysis was performed on short-term cell cultures of two foci (A and B) from each of three multifocal breast carcinomas. In case I, four clones (three related and one unrelated) were detected in sample A. In sample B, two of the three related clones and the unrelated clone seen in A were found, as was also a third subclone showing a pattern of(More)
Tumour angiogenesis and the levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) are both informative prognostic markers in breast cancer. In cell cultures and in animal model systems, PAI-1 has a proangiogenic effect. To evaluate the interrelationship of angiogenesis and the PAI-1 level in breast cancer, we have evaluated the prognostic value of those(More)
Breast cancer patients with oestrogen-receptor (ER) negative tumours usually fail to respond to endocrine therapy as opposed to patients with ER positive tumours who have a response rate of 50-60% (Young et al., 1980; DeSombre et al., 1979), and response is more readily elicited in those tumours that have a high ER concentration (Maas et al., 1980).(More)
High-resolution flow cytometric (FCM) DNA analysis was performed on 148 unfixed, frozen tissue samples from four groups of early breast cancers: invasive carcinomas (ICs) with predominance of carcinoma in situ (DCIS) (group I), small clinical cancers < or = 15 mm (group II), node-negative, clinical cancers (group III) and small screening-detected cancers <(More)
The clinical course of breast cancer was related to degree of anaplasia (DA) and steroid receptor (SR) content of primary tumours in 743 patients (pts) with clinical recurrence, initially enrolled in the DBCG-77 protocols. The oestrogen receptor (ER) and the progesterone receptor (PgR) content was known in 110 and 67 pts. The recurrence-free interval,(More)
The pregnancy specific #1-glycoprotein (SP1) is synthesized by the human placenta and secreted into the maternal circulation. However, SP1 does not seem to be specific to pregnancy since it has been detected by radioimmunoassay in sera from 3 on the detection limit of the assay. By means of a histological immunoperoxidase technique SP1 has been demonstrated(More)
