Bone-marrow-derived myofibroblasts contribute to the cancer-induced stromal reaction.
To confirm whether human cancer-induced stromal cells are derived from bone marrow, bone marrow (BM) cells obtained from beta-galactosidase transgenic and recombination activating gene 1 (RAG-1)Expand

Establishment of a novel species- and tissue-specific metastasis model of human prostate cancer in humanized non-obese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient mice engrafted with human adult lung
Bone is the most common site of metastasis in prostate cancer (PC), and to generate an animal model to investigate the basis of the unique organ tropism of PC cells for bone, we engrafted humanizedExpand

Anti-cell growth and anti-cancer stem cell activities of the non-canonical hedgehog inhibitor GANT61 in triple-negative breast cancer cells
BackgroundTriple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) exhibits biologically aggressive behavior and has a poor prognosis. Novel molecular targeting agents are needed to control TNBC. Recent studies revealedExpand

CD8+ tumor‐infiltrating lymphocytes contribute to spontaneous “healing” in HER2‐positive ductal carcinoma in situ
We evaluated the associations between tumor‐infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) including CD8‐positive [+] lymphocytes in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and histopathologic factors, particularlyExpand

Osteoprotegerin/osteoclastogenesis inhibitory factor decreases human prostate cancer burden in human adult bone implanted into nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient mice.
Human prostate cancer frequently metastasizes to bone, where it gives rise to osteoblastic bone metastases with an underlying osteoclastic component and subsequent bone pain. However, the importanceExpand

Management of breast papillary lesions diagnosed in ultrasound‐guided vacuum‐assisted and core needle biopsies
To assess the outcome of breast papillary lesions diagnosed by ultrasound‐guided core needle biopsy (CB) or vacuum‐assisted ‘mammotome’ biopsy (MT), the accuracy of these diagnoses, and whether it isExpand

Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes are important pathologic predictors for neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with breast cancer.
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy or preoperative systemic therapy is increasingly considered for patients with operable breast cancer. Patients with breast cancer were examined for pathologic factorsExpand
