PURPOSE Accurate testing of HER2 is centrally important for breast cancer therapy and prognosis. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) are current standard testing methods. As a potential alternative for assessment of HER2, we explored quantitative real-time reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR), a fast and inexpensive method(More)
With the objective of discovering novel putative intervention sites for anticancer therapy, we compared transcriptional profiles of breast cancer, lung squamous cell cancer (LSCC), lung adenocarcinoma (LAC), and renal cell cancer (RCC). Each of these tumor types still needs improvement in medical treatment. Our intention was to search for genes not only(More)
PURPOSE Insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) are potent mitogens for breast cancer cells in vitro, and elevated IGF-I serum levels are a risk factor for breast malignancies. This study evaluated IGF-I and IGF-II serum levels in healthy women and in patients with benign and malignant breast lesions and correlated them with tumor size. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN(More)
