Androgens have been frequently used in the treatment of breast cancer. However, objective responses seem to vary according to the steroid hormone receptor expression of the tumor. We have studied the relationship between concentrations of androgen receptors (AR) and those of estrogen (ER) and progesterone (PR) receptors by multiple regression and stratified analysis techniques in 154 cases of primary breast carcinomas and 39 cases of benign tumors. Both the proportion of AR-positive tumors and… CONTINUE READING
