Differentiated DNA analysis in relation to steroid receptor status, grading, and staging in human breast cancer.


Flow cytometric DNA analysis was performed in 100 cases of human breast cancer. Using a category system of six ploidy groups, ploidy status was distributed as follows: The majority of the neoplasias were either diploid (45%), hyperdiploid (21%), or tetraploid (15%), whereas the remaining marginal ploidy groups, i.e. hypodiploid (4%), hypertetraploid (9… (More)
