Progesterone-binding cyst protein (PBCP) is a secretory protein which has been found in varying concentrations and incidence in cytosols from benign breast tumors, primary breast cancer and metastasis. In order to evaluate its correlation to other prognostic factors, PBCP was analysed in tumor cytosols from 386 women with stage I and stage II breast cancer. The incidence of PBCP negative (i.e. PBCP = 0) tumors was significantly decreased in node negative patients as compared to node positive (p… CONTINUE READING
