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
Parks, R. M., Albanghali, M., Syed, B. M., Green, A. R., Ellis, I. O., & Cheung, K. L. (2020). Biology of oestrogen-receptor positive primary of core needle biopsy samples and correlation with clinical outcome. Cancers, 12(8), Article 2067. https://doi.org/10.3390/cancers12082067

© 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...

Liver kinase B1—a potential therapeutic target in hormone-sensitive breast cancer in older women (2019)
Journal Article
Syed, B. M., Green, A. R., Morgan, D. A., Ellis, I. O., & Cheung, K. (2019). Liver kinase B1—a potential therapeutic target in hormone-sensitive breast cancer in older women. Cancers, 11(2), 1-17. https://doi.org/10.3390/cancers11020149

Background: The role of liver kinase B1 (LKB1), a serine/threonine kinase, has been described in the development of PeutzJagher’s syndrome, where a proportion (~45%) of patients have developed breast cancer in their lifetime. Cell line studies have l... Read More about Liver kinase B1—a potential therapeutic target in hormone-sensitive breast cancer in older women.

BQ323636.1, a novel splice variant to NCOR2, as a predictor for tamoxifen resistant breast cancer (2018)
Journal Article
Gong, C., Man, E. P., Tsoi, H., Lee, T. K., Paul, L., Mak, S.-T., …Khoo, U.-S. (2018). BQ323636.1, a novel splice variant to NCOR2, as a predictor for tamoxifen resistant breast cancer. Clinical Cancer Research, 24(15), 3681-3691. https://doi.org/10.1158/1078-0432.CCR-17-2259

Purpose: Adjuvant tamoxifen treatment revolutionized the management of estrogen receptor (ER) positive breast cancers to prevent cancer recurrence; however drug resistance compromises its clinical efficacy. The mechanisms underlying tamoxifen resista... Read More about BQ323636.1, a novel splice variant to NCOR2, as a predictor for tamoxifen resistant breast cancer.

Cyclin E overexpression as a biomarker for combination treatment strategies in inflammatory breast cancer (2017)
Journal Article
Alexander, A., Karakas, C., Chen, X., Carey, J. P., Yi, M., Bondy, M., …Keyomarsi, K. (2017). Cyclin E overexpression as a biomarker for combination treatment strategies in inflammatory breast cancer. Oncotarget, 8, 14897-14911. https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.14689

Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a virulent form of breast cancer, and novel treatment strategies are urgently needed. Immunohistochemical analysis of tumors from women with a clinical diagnosis of IBC (n = 147) and those with non-IBC breast cance...

Breast conservation in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): what defines optimal margins? (2016)
Journal Article
Toss, M. S., Pinder, S. E., Green, A. R., Thomas, J., Morgan, D. A., Robertson, J. F., …Rakha, E. A. (2017). Breast conservation in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): what defines optimal margins?. Histopathology, 70(5), 681-692. https://doi.org/10.1111/his.13116

The introduction of mammographic screening has resulted in a rise in the detection rate of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), currently accounting for one‐fifth of screen‐detected breast cancers. Although 60–70% of DCIS are treated with breast‐conservi... Read More about Breast conservation in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): what defines optimal margins?.

Biological characteristics and clinical outcome of triple negative primary breast cancer in older women - comparison with their younger counterparts. (2014)
Journal Article

Triple negative (ER, PgR and HER2 negative) breast cancers (TNBCs) are often considered as a poor prognostic phenotype. There is dearth of evidence showing the prevalence and biological behaviour of TNBCs in older women. This study aimed to analyse t...
