Glucose uptake and glycolytic metabolism are enhanced in cancer cells compared to normal cells and tissues. Increased expression of glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) has been reported in human malignant cells. The aim of this study is to determine the expression of the facilitative glucose transporter protein GLUT1 in human breast carcinomas and a possible correlation between GLUT1 expression and clinical outcome including disease-free or overall survival. One hundred consecutive formalin-fixed… CONTINUE READING
