Overexpression of eukaryotic initiation factor 4E is correlated with increased risk for systemic dissemination in node-positive breast cancer patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Molecular events impact systemic dissemination. Overexpression of eukaryotic initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) has been shown to predict worse clinical outcomes in breast cancer. Node-positive breast cancer patients were specifically studied to determine if eIF4E elevation increases risk for systemic dissemination. STUDY DESIGN Two hundred two node… (More)
