Phenotypic alterations in ductal carcinoma in situ-associated myoepithelial cells: biologic and diagnostic implications.

Abstract

Recent molecular studies have indicated that ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)-associated myoepithelial cells (MECs) show differences from MECs in normal breast tissue. Such alterations may influence the progression of DCIS to invasive cancer. The purpose of this study was to investigate further phenotypic alterations in DCIS-associated MECs. Paraffin… (More)
