A novel reverse transcription‐polymerase chain reaction (RT‐PCR) assay using mammaglobin B gene was developed for detection of breast cancer micrometastases in axillary lymph nodes. Fourteen primary breast cancers and 56 axillary lymph nodes from six patients with primary breast cancer and 15 control lymph nodes from non‐cancer bearing patients were… CONTINUE READING
