S100A9 is associated with myelomonocytic cell differentiation and is also expressed in some epithelia. However, there have been few studies on S100A9 in adenocarcinoma (AC) because the expression in normal epithelia is limited to squamous epithelia. Our previous studies on pulmonary AC and liver carcinomas suggested that S100A9 expression in carcinomas of glandular cell origin is related to poor tumour differentiation. In this study, we examined S100A9 expression in invasive breast carcinoma… CONTINUE READING
