Paraneoplastic neurological syndromes are rare remote effects of different types of cancer. Paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis is a specific syndrome, most often associated with small cell lung carcinoma. This report describes the case of a pure limbic encephalitis in association with breast cancer. An anti-neuronal antibody was found in the serum and CSF of the patient which has not been reported so far.

    Anti-oestrogen is effective for the treatment of oestrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast carcinomas, but most of these tumours become resistant to anti-oestrogen. It has been suggested that anti-oestrogen therapy may induce a HER2 signalling pathway in breast cancer cells and this may cause...

    Animal models of neuromyelitis optica (NMO) are needed for elucidation of disease mechanisms and for testing new therapeutics. Prior animal models of NMO involved administration of human anti-aquaporin-4 immunoglobulin G antibody (NMO-IgG) to rats with pre-existing neuroinflammation, or to...

    Anti-Her-2/neu antibody is known to induce apoptosis in HER-2/neu overexpressing breast cancer cells. However, exact regulatory mechanisms mediating and controlling this phenomenon are still unknown. In the present study, we have investigated the effect of anti-Her-2/neu antibody on apoptosis of...

    Multiple immunohistochemical stains, including cytokeratin (CK)5/6, are used in a panel format to identify "basal-like" carcinomas. We set out to determine the sensitivity and specificity of the CK5 antibody (clone XM26) and compared its expression with that of CK5/6 (clone D5/16B4) in a variety...

    Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChR) belong to the G-protein-coupled receptor family and are extensively expressed in most cells in mammals. We had reported the expression of mAChR in murine and human breast tumors. The presence of antibodies in the sera of patients with different tumors...
