Integrin-linked kinase 1 (ILK1), a member of the serine/threonine kinases, has been demonstrated to be associated with numerous biological and pathological processes. However, the role of ILK1 in breast cancer has not been thoroughly elucidated. The purpose of this study was to assess ILK1 expression and to explore its contribution to breast cancer. The(More)
Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) is used to detect CK19 mRNA in sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) tissues from breast cancer patients. We examined whether CK19 mRNA in peripheral blood is predictive of non-sentinel lymph node (nSLN) metastasis. Breast cancer cases diagnosed with clinical stage cT1-3cN0 and registered in our medical(More)
