Spontaneous feline mammary carcinoma is a model of HER2 overexpressing poor prognosis human breast cancer.
Companion animal spontaneous tumors are suitable models for human cancer, primarily because both animal population and the tumors are genetically heterogeneous. Feline mammary carcinoma (FMC) is aExpand

Tumour grading and the one-year post-surgical prognosis in feline mammary carcinomas.
To investigate whether the degree of differentiation in feline mammary carcinoma (FMC) can indicate the post-surgical survival time (PST), tumours were surgically resected from 55 cats andExpand

Ki-67 index as indicator of the post-surgical prognosis in feline mammary carcinomas.
Forty-eight feline mammary carcinomas (FMC) were resected surgically from 48 cats to determine whether the Ki-67 index (Ki-67I) would provide an indication of the post-surgical survival time (PST).Expand
