XRCC2 and XRCC3 proteins are structurally and functionally related to RAD51 which play an important role in the homologous recombination, the process frequently involved in cancer transformation. In our previous work we show that the 135G>C polymorphism (rs1801320) of the RAD51 gene can modify the effect of the Thr241Met polymorphism (rs861539) of the XRCC3(More)
Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) has caught the attention of oncologists worldwide because of poor prognosis and paucity of targeted therapies. Gene pathways have been widely studied, but less is known about epigenetic factors such as microRNAs (miRNAs) and their role in tailoring an individual systemic and surgical approach for breast cancer patients.(More)
UBC9 (E2) SUMO conjugating enzyme plays an important role in the maintenance of genome stability and integrity. In the present work we examined the association between the c.73G>A (Val25Met) polymorphism of the UBC9 gene (rs11553473) and efficacy of DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) repair (DRE) in breast cancer patients. We determined the level of endogenous(More)
Oncologists now favor more personalized treatment strategies in breast cancer patients. Gene expression analysis has been widely used, but less is known about epigenetic factors, for example, microRNAs (miRNAs). The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between selected miRNAs and receptor status in core biopsies sampled before preoperative(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the association of a 11 nucleotide deletion, the c.469+46_56del mutation, in the intron of the homeobox MSX1 gene and breast cancer occurrence and characteristics. METHODS The mutation was genotyped in peripheral blood lymphocytes of 200 breast cancer patients and 203 controls by single-strand(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to analyze clinicopathological features in breast cancer patients with local recurrence (LR). MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of database of breast cancer patients operated on in the Department of Surgical Oncology in Łódź from 2 January 2009 to 30 June 2013, identified 1080 women with primary breast(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to assess the impact of hospital caseload on long-term outcomes of rectal cancer patients. We posed two questions: 1. Does the number of operations carried out in the surgical department influence five year survival and local recurrence rates? 2. Does surgery alone without adjuvant therapy performed in the particular(More)
