Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a member of the neurotrophin superfamily which has been indicated in the pathophysiology of the nervous system and is important in a number of neurological and psychological conditions. Recently, BDNF was also shown to play a role in the development and progression of solid tumour myeloma. It has been reported that BDNF is aberrantly expressed in human breast cancer and that a raised level of BDNF is associated with poor clinical outcome and reduced… CONTINUE READING
