BACKGROUND Reducing treatment delay improves outcomes in breast cancer. The aim of this study was to determine factors influencing patient- and system-related delays in commencing breast cancer treatment in different countries. METHODS A total of 6588 female breast cancer patients from 12 countries were surveyed. Total delay time was determined as the sum(More)
BACKGROUND It is widely accepted that patients with ovarian cancer relapsing 6 to 12 months after completion of a platinum-based regimen are considered to be partially platinum-sensitive. The aim of this study was to evaluate and correlate the efficacy and toxicity of reinduction with paclitaxel-carboplatin in a platinum-sensitive epithelial ovarian cancer(More)
PURPOSE Since several studies have proposed that epithelial ovarian cancer should not be considered as a single disease entity and that it results from an accumulation of genetic changes, we aimed to assess the polymorphic expression of major cytosolic glutathione S-transferases (GSTM1, T1, A1 and P1) with respect to ovarian cancer susceptibility and(More)
Mutations in breast cancer susceptibility gene 1 (BRCA1) lead to defects in a number of cellular pathways including DNA damage repair and transcriptional regulation, resulting in the elevated genome instability and predisposing to breast and ovarian cancers. We report a novel mutation LRG_292t1:c.4356delA,p.(Ala1453Glnfs*3) in the 12th exon of BRCA1, in the(More)
The predictive value of Human Epidermal growth factor Receptor 2 (HER-2) on the response to chemotherapy and endocrine therapy in breast cancer patients has not yet been determined. The expression of other biomarkers in breast cancer can further influence the response to therapy. The aim of our study was to investigate if status of steroid receptors (SR)(More)
