Ki67 immunostaining has been performed on 136 primary breast cancers and related to various clinical and pathological features of the disease. Staining was most frequently seen in poorly differentiated tumours showing high rates of mitotic activity, but was independent of tumour size, lymph-node status and ER expression. A high level of Ki67 immunostaining(More)
The percentage of oestrogen receptor (ER) positive cells in a series of 118 breast cancers has been examined by immunohistochemistry in relation to patients' response to endocrine therapy. Positive and negative predictive values have been used to calculate appropriate cut-off points. The rate of response to treatment was significantly higher in women with(More)
An immunocytochemical assay for the measurement of estrogen receptor (ER-ICA; Abbott Diagnostics) has been evaluated in 163 human breast carcinomas. Specific binding was observed in the nuclei of 111 of 163 (68%) tumors. An excellent correlation was observed between the ER-ICA and the estrogen receptor enzyme immunoassay. A significant relationship was(More)
The endocrinological and clinical effects of an LH-RH agonist, Zoladex, and an antiestrogen, Nolvadex, in patients with advanced breast cancer are outlined and their potential in the therapy of nonmalignant diseases of the breast and high-risk states is briefly discussed. Additional data are presented to indicate that new antiestrogens are now available for(More)
The levels cytosol estrogen (ERc) and progesterone (PRc) receptors were determined in 315 primary breast cancers of female Arab patients aged 23-80 years. Most of breast cancers (78%) occurred in women aged 21-50 years, and only 22% were in women aged 51-80 years. Breast cancers containing ERc and PRc concentrations in the range 5-50 fmol/mg of cytosol(More)
