Axillary Reverse Mapping (ARM): A New Concept to Identify and Enhance Lymphatic Preservation
ARM identified significant lymphatic variations draining the upper extremities and facilitated preservation in all but one case and may be useful to prevent lymphedema.
Polymorphisms in glutathione S-transferases (GSTM1 and GSTT1) and survival after treatment for breast cancer.
Interindividual differences in activity of enzymes that prevent therapy-generated reactive oxidant damage may have an important impact on disease recurrence and overall survival among 251 women who received treatment for incident, primary breast cancer.
The health consequences of early soy consumption.
Results from several studies suggest that the effects of diets made with SPI+ differ significantly from those of diets to which purified soy is oflavones are added, and it seems that soy protein processed to contain lower levels of isoflavones also provides significant health benefits.
Nipple Skin-Sparing Mastectomy is Feasible for Advanced Disease
SSM and NSSM have been offered to patients with relatively low-risk breast cancer as oncologically safe while affording superior cosmesis with one-step immediate reconstruction and their complication rates are comparable to those reported for patients undergoing RT after traditional mastectomies.
Plasma Cells in Chronic Endometritis are Easily Identified When Stained with Syndecan-1
In cases of suspected chronic endometritis in which no plasma cells can be found on hematoxylin and eosin stained slides, syndecan-1 may be an effective adjunct in the identification of plasma cells and thus aid in the diagnosis of chronicendometritis.
Hematoma-Directed Ultrasound-Guided (HUG) Breast Lumpectomy
This study suggests that HUG is more accurate in localizing non-palpable lesions than NLBB, and makes VABB not only a less invasive diagnostic procedure, but also a localization procedure that is more time- and cost efficient.
Association between survival after treatment for breast cancer and glutathione S-transferase P1 Ile105Val polymorphism.
Women with the low-activity Val/Val genotype had better survival according to GSTP1 genotype among women treated for breast cancer, suggesting that Inherited metabolic variability may influence treatment outcomes.
