BACKGROUND The proposed involvement of CD151 in breast cancer (BCa) progression is based on findings from studies in invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC). The IDC and invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) represent distinct disease entities. Here we evaluated clinical significance of CD151 alone and in association with integrin α3β1 in patients with ILC in context of(More)

The choice of optimal treatment should be based not only on risk factors resulting from the stage but also on predicted cancer responsiveness to the(More)
