A guanine insertion polymorphism in matrix metalloproteinase-1 promoter (MMP-1 2G) is linked to early onset and aggressiveness in cancer. We determined the role of MMP-1 2G on MMP-1 expression and breast cancer severity in patients with breast diseases. We observed no significant difference in...
We conducted a phase I study to assess safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and activity of lonafarnib plus gemcitabine. Subjects received oral lonafarnib twice daily and gemcitabine on days 1, 8, and 15 every 28 days; multiple dose levels were explored. Lonafarnib had no apparent effect...
Recently, several studies have published conflicting results on the alteration of biomarkers after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer. This meta-analysis aims to evaluate the effects of neoadjuvant chemotherapy on biomarker status in breast cancer utilizing eligible studies identified...
A meta-analysis was performed to determine EGFR mutations, gene amplification, and protein expression and KRAS mutations in primary and metastatic nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We found that KRAS gene mutation frequencies were higher in primary than in metastatic tumors. There was no...
Background : Epidemiologic and biochemical evidence suggest a role of statins and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) as anti-neoplastic agents. This study was designed to evaluate the association between the use of these agents and the risk of...
We used Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results–Medicare data (2000–2006) to describe treatment and survival in women diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) who received trastuzumab. There were 610 patients with a mean age of 74 years. Overall, 32%% received trastuzumab alone and...
Classical prognostic factors of breast cancer are correlated to disease-free survival and overall survival (OS); their precise role is less known on metastatic disease. A total of 511 breast cancer patients without initial metastasis were treated. OS was divided in time to distant recurrence and...
We have tested PJ34, a potent inhibitor of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP), against various lung cancer cell lines (Calu-6, A549, and H460) and normal human bronchial epithelial cells (HBECs). While using WST1 dye assay, lung cancer cells exhibited LD 50 values of approximately 30 μM PJ34...
