The article discusses research on the ability of the nerve growth factor to inhibit tumor cell proliferation, survival and metastasis in breast cancer. It references a study published in a 2008 issue of "Cancer Research." The research showed that the nerve growth factor is widely expressed in human breast tumors.

    Chemokine (C-X-C motif) receptor 4 (CXCR4) has been found to closely correlate with the incidence, development, treatment and prognosis of breast cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of CXCR4 on bone metastasis in breast cancer and to explore the mechanisms of this...

    Aim: Increased proliferation of tumour cells has prognostic value in human invasive breast carcinomas (IBCs), and high histology grade and cyclin A expression, which may reflect high proliferation rate, are associated with poor prognosis. Expression of HsMCM2 is related to cell proliferation....

    Breast cancers differ in many ways, such as in their cell of origin, the molecular alterations causing them and the susceptibility and defenses of the patient, and this makes it difficult to give the most appropriate treatment. Two recent papers have contributed to the establishment of a more...

    Cell proliferation and invasion are critical for malignant progression, yet how these processes relate to each other and whether they regulate one another during metastasis is unknown. We show that invasiveness of breast cancer cells is associated with growth arrest due to p21CIP1 upregulation....

    Recent studies have implicated multipotential mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) as an aid to breast cancer cell proliferation and metastasis, partly as a result of the MSCs secretome. As the tumor gets beyond 2 mm in diameter, the stromal cells could undergo starvation due to the lack of sufficient...

    Eccrine porocarcinoma (EPC) is a rare tumor. It develops from the intraepidermal ductal portion of the eccrine sweat gland. Metastatic disease is rare. We report a new case of metastatic eccrine porocarcinoma with a successful management and a good response to docetaxel. A 54-year-old man was...
