OBJECTIVES To investigate the association between PTEN loss and IGFBP2 expression in a series of triple-negative breast cancers and to relate this expression to basal cytokeratin expression and clinicopathologic features. METHODS One hundred and one formalin-fixed and paraffin-processed triple-negative breast cancer cases from the University of Malaya(More)
The transient receptor potential melastin-8 (TRPM8) channel is activated by the "cooling" compounds menthol and icilin. Pathophysiologically, it is implicated in the overactive bladder and bladder cooling reflex, but the activity of TRPM8 in normal bladder physiology is poorly understood. We investigated the distribution of TRPM8 channels and the effect of(More)
Given that breast cancers in germline BRCA1 carriers are predominantly estrogen-negative and triple-negative, it has been suggested that women diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) younger than 50 years should be offered BRCA1 testing, regardless of family cancer characteristics. However, the predictive value of triple-negative breast cancer,(More)
The reliability of the rabbit monoclonal antibodies SP1, SP2, SP3, and 4B5 was immunohistochemically assessed on a range of 96 invasive breast carcinomas and the results compared with those achieved with established antibody markers for estrogen receptors (6F11), progesterone receptors (PgR636), and HER2 (polyclonal A0485 and clone CB11), with HER2 status(More)
The incidence of breast cancer in Malaysia and other Asian countries is on the increase, reflecting lifestyle changes some of which are known risk factors for the development of breast cancer. Most breast cancers are amenable to adjuvant therapies that target hormone receptors or HER2 receptors on the surface of the cancer cells and bring about significant(More)
