Background: The utility of archived breast tissue samples for risk-related research is limited by the fact that menopausal and menstrual status at the time of tissue sampling is often unknown. We evaluated the expression of a panel of genes in degraded RNA samples from women undergoing random fine-needle aspirate (rFNA) in preparation for a soy-isoflavone intervention. Our goal was to identify breast epithelial gene expression patterns related to menopause and menstrual phase. Methods: Among 86… Expand
