Estrogen (ER) and progesterone (PgR) receptor content was assayed in 290 premenopausal women with primary breast cancer, in order to investigate the influence of endogenous hormones on cytoplasmic receptor concentrations throughout the menstrual cycle, subdivided into four phases of ovarian function (early and late follicular phase, early and late luteal phase). Of the total population, 231 (79.7%) patients were ER positive and 59 (20.3%) were ER negative; 220 (75.9%) were PgR positive and 70… CONTINUE READING
