Relative value of oestrogen receptor assay, lactoferrin content, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity as prognostic indicators in primary breast cancer.

Oestrogen receptor content, lactoferrin, hexokinase, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase levels were measured in cytosol from 25 primary breast cancers and 3 fibroadenomas. Both hexokinase and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity were higher in malignant tissue as compared to benign breast lesions. Oestrogen receptor concentration and lactoferrin… CONTINUE READING
