AIMS To find the optimal cut-off values for cyclin A and Ki67 in early breast cancer tumours and to evaluate their prognostic values. METHODS AND RESULTS Tissue microarray (TMA) slides were constructed from 570 T1-4 N0-1 M0 breast cancer tumours. The TMA slides were stained for cyclin A and Ki67 using immunohistochemistry with commercial antibodies. To(More)
The occurrence of Hodgkin's disease (HD) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) appearing in the same individual indicates a closer relationship between the 2 diseases than previously believed. The purpose of our study was to analyze cases of HD and NHL in a defined population clinically, histopathologically and immunohistochemically to look for similarities(More)
A large proportion of women with lymph node negative breast cancer do not benefit from chemotherapy. Proliferation markers have been shown to recognize patients at high risk for recurrence. The Ki67 protein has recently been included in the St Gallen guidelines. The authors investigated the prognostic importance of cyclin B1 in node negative breast cancer(More)
We wanted to study cyclin A as a marker for prognosis and chemotherapy response. A total of 283 women with metastatic breast cancer were initially enrolled in a randomised multicentre trial comparing docetaxel to sequential methotrexate-fluorouracil (MF) in advanced breast cancer after anthracycline failure. Paraffin-embedded blocks of the primary tumour(More)
Cyclin B1 regulates the G(2)-M transition of the cell cycle. Cyclin B1 expression is higher in premalignant and malignant than normal breast lesions. Correlation of cyclin B1 expression with other histopathological variables and prognostic role in breast cancer are not fully understood. Traditionally used prognostic criteria identify large subset of(More)
AIMS Tissue microarray (TMA) is an efficient technique for analysis of molecular markers. Prospectively collected samples have been reported to give excellent concordance between TMA data and corresponding whole-sections. The aim was to evaluate the usefulness of TMA in a population-based cohort of 213 women with ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast(More)
Cyclin A has in some studies been associated with poor breast cancer survival, although all studies have not confirmed this. Its prognostic significance in breast cancer needs evaluation in larger studies. Tissue microarray (TMA) technique allows a simultaneous analysis of large amount of tumours on a single microscopic slide. This makes a rapid screening(More)
Genetic heterogeneity is common in tumors, explicable by the development of subclones with distinct genetic and epigenetic alterations. We describe an in vitro model for cancer heterogeneity, comprising the diffuse large B-cell lymphoma cell line U-2932 which expresses two sets of cell surface markers representing twin populations flow-sorted by CD20 vs(More)
