In order to investigate further the mechanisms associated with growth inhibition of human breast cancer cells by progestins and nonsteroidal antiestrogens, their effect on c-myc gene expression in T-47D-5 and T-47D cells has been investigated. The c-myc mRNA levels were differentially regulated by the synthetic progestin, medroxyprogesterone acetate and the(More)
Marked changes in both growth factor and proto-oncogene expression occur due to treatment of hormonally-responsive human cancers with progestins and antiestrogens. In human endometrial cancer cell lines the antiproliferative effects of progestins and antiestrogens in a particular cell line appear to be associated with similar effects on growth factor and/or(More)
Cuba is an HBsAg low-prevalence country with a high coverage of anti-hepatitis B vaccine. Its population is essentially the result of the population mix of Spanish descendants and former African slaves. Information about genetic characteristics of hepatitis B virus (HBV) strains circulating in the country is scarce. The HBV genotypes/subgenotypes,(More)
