In comparison with activated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and bulk CD8<sup>+</sup> T cells, HER2-specific CTLs exhibited greater cytotoxicity against the HER2-expressing human breast adenocarcinoma cell line MCF-7 and produced higher levels of IFN-γ in response to tumor cells.
Patients ≥ 18 years of age with histologically-confirmed HER2-positive adenocarcinoma of the breast (clinical T1-T3, N0-N2, M0), normal left ventricular ejection fraction, and adequate organ function received trastuzumab 6 mg/kg intravenous (I.V.)
The incidence of topoisomerase II-alpha genomic alterations in adenocarcinoma of the breast and their relationship to human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 gene amplification: a fluorescence in situ hybridization study.
The influence of polysomy 17 on HER2 gene and protein expression in adenocarcinoma of the breast: a fluorescent in situ hybridization, immunohistochemical, and isotopic mRNA in situ hybridization study.
We report the case of an 82-year-old male patient with a > 8-year history of prostate cancer (PrCa), who developed breast adenocarcinoma (BrCa) (Ki-67+ and negative for ER, PR, PSA and HER2/neu) after prolonged (approximately 7-year) anti-androgen (flutamide) monotherapy for locally advanced PrCa.
