Concordance between core needle biopsy and surgical excision specimens for Ki-67 in breast cancer–a systematic review of the literature (2021)
Journal Article

Aims: The biomarkers oestrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) are routinely measured in patients with breast cancer with international consensus on how they should be interpreted. There i... Read More about Concordance between core needle biopsy and surgical excision specimens for Ki-67 in breast cancer–a systematic review of the literature.

The impact of tumour biology on the management of primary breast cancer in older women—based on a research programme in Nottingham (2021)
Journal Article

The incidence of breast cancer increases with age. Average life expectancies are increasing; the older population is expanding globally. This presents a huge challenge on an international scale in the coming years as more older people are living with...

Patterns of biomarker expression in patients treated with primary endocrine therapy – a unique insight using core needle biopsy tissue microarray (2020)
Journal Article

© 2020, The Author(s). Purpose: Prediction of response to primary endocrine therapy (PET) in older women is based on measurement of oestrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PgR) and human epidermal growth factor (HER)-2. This study uses a uniq... Read More about Patterns of biomarker expression in patients treated with primary endocrine therapy – a unique insight using core needle biopsy tissue microarray.

Markers of steroid receptor, kinase signalling pathways and Ki-67 expression in relation to tamoxifen sensitivity and resistance (2020)
Journal Article

Background: It remains clinically important to identify ER positive breast cancers likely to respond to tamoxifen (TAM) and so we aimed to select a group of biomarkers able to predict response. We also assessed whether data from different sample type...

Biology of oestrogen-receptor positive primary of core needle biopsy samples and correlation with clinical outcome (2020)
Journal Article

© 2020 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland. The majority of biological profiling studies use surgical excision (SE) samples, excluding patients receiving nonsurgical and neoadjuvant therapy. We propose using core needle biopsy (CNB) for...
