BACKGROUND Sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) is a widely used staging method for patients with early breast cancer. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy modifies the anatomical conditions in the breast and axilla, and thus SLNB remains controversial in patients treated preoperatively. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the reliability and accuracy of this(More)
AIM ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters contribute to development of resistance to anticancer drugs via ATP-dependent drug efflux. A major goal of our study was to investigate associations between the expression of ABC transporters and outcome of breast carcinoma patients. PATIENTS & METHODS Transcript levels of all 49 human ABC transporters were(More)
Metabolism of anticancer drugs affects their antitumor effects. This study has investigated the associations of gene expression of enzymes metabolizing anticancer drugs with therapy response and survival of breast carcinoma patients. Gene expression of 13 aldo-keto reductases (AKRs), carbonyl reductase 1, and 10 cytochromes P450 (CYPs) was assessed using(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of serological tests in combination with clinical symptoms for diagnosing celiac disease (CD) according to the new proposed European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) criteria. We retrospectively assessed children and adolescents aged 16 months –19 years who were(More)
BACKGROUND The ABCB1 gene encodes P-glycoprotein implicated in the development of cellular drug resistance. The aim of this study was to develop high-resolution melting (HRM) analysis for determination of ABCB1 polymorphisms and evaluate their associations with clinical data of breast carcinoma patients. METHODS HRM analysis was designed to assess five(More)
OBJECTIVES ATP-Binding Cassette (ABC) transporters may cause treatment failure by transporting of anticancer drugs outside of the tumor cells. Multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 coded by the ABCC1 gene has recently been suggested as a potential prognostic marker in breast cancer patients. This study aimed to explore tagged haplotype covering(More)
AIM A role of caspase-2 in chemotherapy-induced apoptosis has been suggested. Our study aimed to evaluate the prognostic and predictive importance of caspase-2 isoforms in breast cancer patients. MATERIALS & METHODS Caspase-2L and -2S transcript levels were determined in paired tumor and non-malignant control tissues from 64 patients after neoadjuvant(More)
UNLABELLED Although allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) offers a unique curative potential, it may be connected with high treatment-related morbidity and mortality. Besides many organ complications, allo-HSCT may significantly affect quality of life (QOL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 2011 and December 2012, five(More)
