Histological specimens from 80 invasive breast carcinomas comprising typical cases of 16 ductal, nine papillary, 14 comedo, 13 colloid (mucous), 15 lobular, and 13 medullary carcinomas were examined with respect to nuclear DNA and estrogen receptor content. In agreement with previous studies, ductal carcinomas were found to exhibit different types of nuclear DNA distribution patterns, i.e., tumors with DNA values in the normal diploid or tetraploid regions indicative of good prognosis (euploid… CONTINUE READING
