    Citation: Breast Cancer Research 2000 2:335
  5. Numerous models have been developed to address key elements in the biology of breast cancer development and progression. No model is ideal, but the most useful are those that reflect the natural history and hi...

  8. Protein truncation test (PTT) and single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) assay were used to scan the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in 136 unrelated Italian breast/ovarian cancer patients. In the sample tested, BR...

    Citation: Breast Cancer Research 2000 2:244
  11. New guidelines for the collection and use of human tissues for research will impose new requirements on researchers to seek ethical approval and patient consent. This extends to the use of surplus tissue, such...

    Authors: Mitch Dowsett
    Citation: Breast Cancer Research 2000 2:241
  12. The use of human tissue, and material derived from such tissue, for research purposes is currently the subject of much debate. This debate needs to address several issues, including: the principle of abandonme...

    Citation: Breast Cancer Research 2000 2:237
  13. We describe here the expression pattern of the breast cell growthinhibitor Mammastatin in normal and breast cancer cells. Normal Cells (NHMC)over-express Mammastatin in low calcium media. Mammastatin has been ...

    Citation: Breast Cancer Research 2000 2:211
  15. The past decade has seen the definition of key signalling pathways downstream of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) in terms of their components and the protein-protein interactions that facilitate signal transd...
