PURPOSE Recent studies have highlighted that the p53 codon 72 polymorphism plays a crucial role in modulating wild-type p53 apoptotic capacity, and as such may influence the response to chemotherapy. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate whether the p53 codon 72 polymorphism might influence pathologic response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in(More)
The genetic cause for approximately 80% of familial breast cancer patients is unknown. Here, by sequencing the entire exomes of nine early-onset familial breast cancer patients without BRCA1/2 mutations (diagnosed with breast cancer at or before the age of 35) we found that two index cases carried a potentially deleterious mutation in the RECQL gene (RecQ(More)
p73 gene shares structural and functional similarities to p53, and plays an important role in modulating cell-cycle arrest and apoptosis. A common non-coding polymorphism of exon 2 of the p73 gene (designated as GC/AT) may affect gene expression, thus, it may lead to functional significance. The correlation of this polymorphism with breast cancer survival(More)
OBJECTIVE Early assessment of response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for breast cancer allows therapy to be individualized. The optimal assessment method has not been established. We investigated the accuracy of automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) to predict pathological outcomes after NAC. METHODS A total of 290 breast cancer patients were eligible(More)
This study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety aspects of three anthracycline-based regimens as neoadjuvant chemotherapy in primary breast cancer. Five-hundred and one patients with clinical stage I-III invasive breast cancer were randomly assigned to receive four cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with either CEFci arm (5-Fu 200 mg/m(2) daily by 24-h(More)
PURPOSE The association between PIK3CA mutations and response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in women with primary breast cancer is not fully elucidated. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN PIK3CA mutations in breast cancer tissues that were taken prior to the initiation of neoadjuvant chemotherapy were identified in 729 operable primary breast cancer patients who received(More)
Our previous study suggested that the recurrent CHEK2 H371Y mutation is a novel pathogenic mutation that confers an increased risk of breast cancer. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether breast cancer patients with CHEK2 H371Y mutation were more likely to respond to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. We screened a cohort of 2334 Chinese women with(More)
