The 42-year-old patient, diagnosed with Stage IIA breast cancer, completed the postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy. At the 11th year of diagnosis, a 3 cm tumor was detected in the pancreas and pancreatectomy was performed. Although the diagnosis of primary pancreatic adenocarcinoma was made at first, then the pancreatic metastasis of breast cancer was discovered. Pancreatic metastasis of breast cancer is extremely rare, and a limited number of patients have been reported in the literature. Here, we report an additional case of this rare tumor and the problems correlating with its diagnosis.

Biomarker identification is imperative for invasive breast carcinoma, which is more aggressive and associated with higher mortality and worse prognosis in younger patients (<45 years) than in older patients (>50 years). The current study aimed to investigate angiopoietin-like protein 4 (ANGPTL4) and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) protein expression in breast tissue from young patients with breast carcinoma. Immunohistochemical staining was applied in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded samples of breast carcinoma tissue from young patients aged <45 years at the time of diagnosis. Both proteins were expressed in the majority of cases. The highest frequency of positive ANGPTL4 and IGF-1 expression was observed in the luminal A subtype, whereas the HER2-overexpression subtype exhibited the lowest expression frequency for both proteins. There was no significant association between ANGPTL4 (p = 0.897) and IGF-1 (p = 0.091) expression and molecular subtypes of breast carcinoma. The histological grade was a significant predictor of ANGPTL4 expression (grade 1 vs. grade 3, adjusted odds ratio = 12.39, p = 0.040). Therefore, ANGPTL-4 and IGF-1 expressions are common in young breast carcinoma tissue. There is a potential use of them as biomarkers in breast carcinoma.

This study prepared 25 sulfonylurea compounds to evaluate anti-tumor activity. Through experimental investigations in MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7, i.e., cell lines of breast carcinoma of human, we have concluded that some compounds can significantly suppress breast carcinoma cells from growing and proliferating. Moreover, the compound M’s inhibitory effect on cells of breast carcinoma is concentration-dependent under a certain treatment time; and the inhibitory effect of the compound M on breast carcinoma cells is time-dependent under a certain concentration. In addition, we also found that the compound M can effectively suppress cells of breast carcinoma from migration and independent survival. The results can show the prospect of research and development of new breast carcinoma treatment drug.

Abstract Background: Invasive breast carcinoma (BRCA) is a common type of breast cancer with high incidence in clinics, so it is significant to find an effective biomarker for BRCA diagnosis and treatment. Although some Armadillo (Arm)-repeat proteins families are confirmed to be biomarkers in cancers, the role of Armadillo repeat-containing 1 (ARMC1) in BRCA remains unknown.Methods: We analyzed the ARMC1 expression in normal breast tissues and BRCA samples, and its association with overall survival by the public database. χ² test evaluated the risks associated with ARMC1 expression in TCGA-BRCA patient samples. The ARMC1 mutations in BRCA were explored in the cBioportal database. Besides, the GO and KEGG analysis was used to explore the potential signaling pathways of ARMC1 in BRCA. Lastly, Immunohistochemistry and immunohistochemistry were performed to validate the ARMC1 expression in BRCA.Results: ARMC1 level in tumor sample was significantly higher than that in normal tissue, and it was also related to lower survival. The factors in clinical patients such as tumor stage and grade and histology were associated with ARMC1 expression. There were 32% of ARMC1 genetic mutations in BRCA, and the amplification and high expression made up the majority of them. Also, ARMC1 might regulate BRCA by involving in the cell cycle. Increased ARMC1 expression was found in clinical breast carcinoma tissues by our confirmatory experiments.Conclusions: All the results revealed that ARMC1 may play a significant role in BRCA as a biomarker, it provides valuable clues for the treatment and diagnosis of invasive breast cancer.

Objective To inquiry about mechanism of miR-100-5p/CDC25A axis in breast carcinoma (BC), thus offering a new direction for BC targeted treatment. Methods qRT-PCR was employed to explore miR-100-5p and CDC25A mRNA levels. Western blot was employed for detecting protein expression of CDC25A. Targeting relationship of miR-100-5p and CDC25A was verified by dual-luciferase assay. In vitro experiments were used for assessment of cell functions. Results In BC tissue and cells, miR-100-5p was significantly lowly expressed (P < 0.05) while CDC25A was highly expressed. Besides, miR-100-5p downregulated CDC25A level. miR-100-5p had a marked influence on the prognosis of patients. The forced miR-100-5p expression hindered BC cell proliferation, migration and invasion, and facilitated cell apoptosis. Upregulated miR-100-5p weakened promotion of CDC25A on BC cell growth. Conclusion Together, these findings unveiled that CDC25A may be a key target of miR-100-5p that mediated progression of BC cells. Hence, miR-100-5p overexpression or CDC25A suppression may contribute to BC diagnosis.
