To study the activity of telomerase and the relationship between telomerase and other prognostic variables in cases of invasive ductal breast carcinomas, fifty fine-needle aspiration biopsies (FNABs) obtained from the same number of female patients, diagnosed cytologically and confirmed histologically after surgery, were examined. The same cases were studied immunocytochemically using monoclonal antibodies to telomerase, estradiol receptors (ER) and HER-2 (CB11) and a standard alkaline… CONTINUE READING
