Amplification of Genomic DNA for Decoy Receptor 3 Predicts Post-Resection Disease Recurrence in Breast Cancer Patients
Decoy receptor 3 (DcR3), a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR) superfamily, shows inhibitory effects on Fas-mediated apoptosis. Currently, data are lacking on the correlation between DcR3 and the recurrence of breast cancer. The authors examined DcR3 mRNA expression and genomic amplification in breast cancer, and investigated the effect of DcR3 gene amplification on prognosis of patients. A total of 95 patients formed the basis of the current retrospective study. DcR3 mRNA expression in breast cancer tissues was examined by RNase protection assay and in situ hybridization.

Male Breast Cancer and Hyperestrogenemia: A Thirteen-Year Review
Male breast cancer (MBC) is a very rare malignancy and accounts for 0.1% of all male cancers. MBC has not been studied as extensively as its female counterpart. Certain clinical and pathological risk factors like smoking history, age at onset, family history of cancer, obesity, ethnicity, estrogen/progesterone receptor status and BRCA gene mutation status have all been studied well in the female breast cancer (FBC) patients and the clinical trial evidence from these studies is then extrapolated to treat and manage patients with MBC.

Metastatic Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma and Cabozantinib: Case Series and Review of Literature
Cabozantinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in November 2012, for the treatment of metastatic medullary thyroid carcinoma. Although side effects typically include stomatitis, palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia syndrome, hypertension and diarrhea, most patients are able to tolerate the recommended dose of 140 mg daily. Surgical resection is the primary treatment for medullary thyroid carcinoma. Patients with metastatic disease, who are not candidates for surgery, are considered candidates for systemic therapy. However, systemic chemotherapy has a limited role in metastatic disease. Full Text
