Differential expression of estrogen receptor subtypes and variants in ovarian cancer: effects on cell invasion, proliferation and prognosis
BackgroundDue to the presence of both classical estrogen receptor (ERα) and another ER subtype (ERβ) in ovarian cancer, hormonal treatment is an attractive option. However, response to tamoxifen inExpand
