Advances in Brief Clinical Significance of Micrometastases in Axillary Lymph Nodes Assessed by Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction in Breast Cancer Patients

Abstract

We evaluated the clinical significance of micrometastases in axillary lymph nodes (AxLNs) of breast cancer patients for prediction of prognosis. Archived formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded AxLN specimens from 129 node-negative breast cancer patients diagnosed by routine H&E staining between 1986 and 1990 were subjected to carcinoembryonic antigen-specific… (More)
