Tumor-associated macrophages are strongly related to vascular invasion, non-luminal subtypes, and interval breast cancer
Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) resemble M2 macrophages, promote tumor invasion and show strong expression of CD163 in breast cancer. We here investigated the association between CD163-positive macrophages and vascular ...
Extra-nodal extension is a significant prognostic factor in lymph node positive breast cancer
Presence of lymph node (LN) metastasis is a strong prognostic factor in breast cancer, whereas the importance of extra-nodal extension and other nodal tumor features have not yet been fully recognized. Here, we examined ...
Predictive value of C-reactive protein in patients treated with sunitinib for metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma
(BMC Springer, 2017-08-31)
Background Sunitinib has become mainstay first line treatment for patients with metastatic renal clear cell carcinoma (mRCC). Still, useful predictive markers of response are lacking and urgently needed for clinical ...
Expression of Nestin associates with BRCA1 mutations, a basal-like phenotype and aggressive breast cancer
We here examined whether Nestin, by protein and mRNA levels, could be a predictor of BRCA1 related breast cancer, a basal-like phenotype, and aggressive tumours. Immunohistochemical staining of Nestin was done in independent ...
