Genetic polymorphisms of GSTM1 and GSTT1 genes and endometrial cancer in Basrah, South of Iraq

The genes glutathione S- transferase M1 (GSTM1) and GSTT1 involved in phase II metabolism catalyse glutathione – mediated reduction of exogenous and endogenous electrophiles. A case control study was designed to identify association between polymorphisms at GSTM1 and GSTT1 genes and endometrial cancer risk. Genotype frequencies in 50 patient’s women with endometrial cancer...

Down regulation of galectin-3 in primary tumor tissues of breast predict axillary lymph node metastasis

Identification of axillary lymph node metastasis in breast cancer patients is a challenge in routine pathology practice. Serial sectioning and immunohistochemistry is labor intensive and cannot be followed even for sentinel node examination. So identification of a biomarker predicting axillary lymph node metastasis in primary tumor tissue is of great interest. Galectins are a family of low molecular weight...
