Advanced squamous cervical cancer, one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in women, still remains a major problem in oncology due to treatment failure and distant metastasis. Antitumor therapy failure is due to both intrinsic and acquired resistance; intrinsic resistance is often decisive for treatment response. In this study, we investigated the(More)
Different molecular changes have been previously associated with therapeutic response and recurrent disease, however, the detailed mechanism of action in triple-negative breast cancer subtype remains elusive. In this study, we investigated the cellular and molecular signaling of two claudin-low triple-negative breast cancer cells to doxorubicin and(More)
During the past four decades, an increased number of similarities between canine mammary tumors and human breast cancer have been reported: molecular, histological, morphological, clinical and epidemiological, which lead to comparative oncological studies. One of the most important goals in human and veterinary oncology is to discover potential molecular(More)
The platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) signalling pathway has been reported to play an important role in human cancers by modulating autocrine and paracrine processes such as tumour growth, metastasis and angiogenesis. Several clinical trials document the benefits of targeting this pathway; however, in cervical cancer the role of PDGF signalling in still(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate whether there is a correlation between peripheral blood expression of angiogenic transcriptional factors/receptors and colorectal cancer (CRC). METHODS Eighty six blood samples collected from patients with CRC (N=42), adenomas and/or hyperplastic polyps(AP, N=30) and individuals without colon pathology(More)
Tumors act systemically to sustain cancer progression, affecting the physiological processes in the host and triggering responses in the blood circulating cells. In this study, we explored blood transcriptional patterns of patients with two subtypes of HER2 negative breast cancers, with different prognosis and therapeutic outcome. Peripheral blood samples(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease and the leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is considered to be one of the most aggressive breast neoplasia due to failure of chemotherapy response. Thus, there is an urgent need of finding alternative therapies for TNBC. This study was designed to(More)
Polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) are classical myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), characterized by specific somatic mutations in JAK2, CALR or MPL genes. JAK2 46/1 and TERT rs2736100 polymorphisms are known to significantly predispose to MPN. This study aimed to establish the additional contribution of(More)
