Field of study: Pathology. Purpose of study: Evaluation of molecular profile of ductal and lobular invasive mammary carcinomas in comparison with ipsilateral lymph node metastases, as well evaluation of molecular subtypes’ stability during metastatic process.
Objectives: Tumor’s molecular phenotype assessment in relation to histological grade and type, lymph nodes involvement, as well evaluation of ER, PR, AR, HER2, CK5, EGFR, p53, BCL2 and E-cadherin stability during metastatic development of breast carcinoma.
Scientific innovation: For the first time was demonstrated the instability of ER, PR, AR, HER2, CK5, EGFR, p53, BCL2 and E-cadherin markers during metastatic development of ductal type NOS and lobular invasive carcinomas. We set it up for the first time that lymph node metastasis has a particular immunohistochemical phenotype, distinct from primary tumor, which arguments the revaluation necessity of modern concepts of treatment.
Theoretical significance and applied value of the work: The results of present work support the necessity of simultaneous imunohistochemical examination of primary tumor and metastasis, in reason of a personalized diagnostic and treatment evaluation. Implementation of scientific results: The obtained results were approved to have a scientific and practical value for histological, pathological, oncological departments’ and laboratories’ activity.
