    Abstract: This volume, with contributions from the most recognized experts in preventive strategies in breast cancer, presents the accepted as well as the novel ideas that have been introduced for the prevention of breast cancer. There is no single preventive agent that can stop the incidence of breast cancer—the malignant disease most frequently diagnosed in women of all races and nationalities. Furthermore, its incidence around the globe is increasing in industrialized countries. The worldwide incidence of breast cancer has increased 30-40% since the 1970s, reaching an excess of 1,390,000 new cases and a mortality of more than 460,000 cases in 2015. Therefore, what is needed is the development of rational strategies for the prevention of this fatal disease

    Abstract: This book provides a detailed description of the most common techniques used in breast cancer research, with a special emphasis on the study of the normal breast as the basis for understanding the pathological processes in this organ. The authors have poured their experience in the field of breast cancer research into this book, and described the process of handling and interpreting the complex organ that is the human breast using original data and unique material collected over the years. ℗ They have established the concept of normality of the human breast and the morphological parameters to be used for distinguishing the normal from the diseased breast. The quality of the breast tissue obtained from autopsy material vs. core biopsies are carefully detailed and discussed, showing the morphological differences among the specimens according to their collection site. The use of laser capture microdissection and tissue microarray is described in detail and discussed with special references to the problems faced when the normal breast is under study. A chapter dedicated to the use of breast cancer cell lines is crafted around the importance of each cell line and its particularities for in vitro studies. In addition, the authors explore the new concept that cancer originates from two main cell types, basal and luminal cells . Particular attention is given to the study of the phenotypes commonly used for determining cell transformation, either spontaneously or by induced chemical agents. A companion chapter using in vivo models provides the adequate tools for those interested in studying the early events of cancer initiation, progression and metastasis. Special emphasis is given to the analysis of cells either by Flow cytometry and immuno-fluorescence techniques and the great potential of the use of in situ hybridization to study RNA transcripts. The book also features an original analysis of the putative markers of stem cells in breast cancer using immuno-cytochemical techniques, their interpretation and correlation with the prognosis of the disease. The last two chapters of the book are engaged in the utilization of RNA and DNA sequencing techniques and their values in understanding the physiological differences in the human breast, as well as the utilization of epigenetic methodologies in the understanding of the normal human breast. The authors have established the methodological basis for studying the human breast in its normal and pathological conditions providing a unique set of tools and valuable references for researchers pursuing a deeper understanding of the human breast

    Description / Table of Contents: Preface -- The epidemiology of breast cancer and the basis for prevention -- In vivo model for breast cancer prevention -- Comparative effects of the preventive effect of pregnancy, steroidal hormones and hCG in the transcriptomic profile of the rat mammary gland -- The use of in vitro three-dimensional system for testing preventing agents -- Methodological approach fro studying the human breast -- The transcriptoma of breast cancer prevention -- Chromatin remodeling and pregnancy induced differentiation -- The role of spliceosome in the human breast -- Non coding RNAs and breast cancer prevention -- The role of stem cell in breast cancer prevention -- Index
    Abstract: 〈p〉This book is designed for advanced students and researchers in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, medicine in general, and cancer in particular. It provides the latest data on the transcriptome of the mammary gland in order to establish the molecular and cellular biology of differentiation leading to cancer prevention. The authors have based their work on the epidemiological evidence that early first full term pregnancy is a protective factor in humans against breast cancer and using this knowledge have developed 〈i〉in vivo and in vitro〈/i〉 experimental systems that have demonstrated mechanistically how the differentiation takes place.℗ The transcriptoma analysis of the female breast shows that an early first full term pregnancy reprograms the organ by imprinting a genomic signature that differs according to reproductive history.℗ This reprogramming takes place at the chromatin level by changing the transcriptional process. The modification of the transcriptional control is due to the expression of non-coding RNA sequences and post-transcriptional control driven by the spliceosome. The plasticity of the genome of the human breast makes possible this reprogramming that is not only induced by the physiological process of pregnancy but by the use of hormones mimicking pregnancy. The role of stem cells and their reprogramming during differentiation are presented as a new paradigm in breast cancer prevention.〈/p〉

    Notes: Summary Testes of newborn mice not older than one day were transplanted into the anterior chamber of one eye of an adult male white Holtzman rat. The events observed in the Leydig cells of the grafted testes can be divided into two periods. Period one is marked by differentiation; period two, by dedifferentiation. In period one, the lipid and glycogen inclusions disappear, possibly owing to the gonadotropins of the host. In period two, which starts after day 15 post-grafting, the lipids and glycogen reappear; the Leydig cells now contain residual bodies, whereas the S.E.R. disappears. Immunological mechanisms can be implicated; it is suggested that the Leydig cells dedifferentiate because the host's gonadotropins may be incapable of evoking and/or activating the genetic memory of the grafted Leydig cells.

    Notes: Summary This paper describes the morphological events which take place in the hamster Leydig cell during its process of prenatal and postnatal differentiation. The most strinking feature of the prenatal differentiation is the high development of the vesicular form of the smooth endoplasmic reticulum (S.E.R.). At around the end of the first month of postnatal life the vesicular form of the S.E.R. is replaced by a truly reticular S.E.R. formed by numerous interconnected cisternae. From fetal to adult life the amount of ribosomes decreases whereas the number of mitochondria and Golgi cisternae increases. It is concluded that the differentiation mechanism of the hamster Leydig cell differs from that observed in the Leydig cell of other species, even of those closely related to the hamster, such as the mouse.

    Notes: The developmental pattern of the breast can be assessed by determining the composition of the breast in specific lobular structures, which are designated as lobules type 1 (Lob 1), lobules type 2 (Lob 2), and lobules type 3 (Lob 3), with Lob 1 being the less developed and Lob 3 being the most differentiated or with the highest number of ductules per lobular unit. In the present work, the patient population consisted of three groups of women who underwent surgical procedures: The first group included women who underwent reduction mammoplasty (RM) for cosmetic reasons. The second group included women who underwent prophylactic subcutaneous mastectomy after genetic counseling for either carrying the BRCA-1 gene or belonging to a pedigree with familial breast cancer (FAM), and the third group included women who underwent modified radical mastectomy (MRM) for the diagnosis of invasive carcinoma. The RM group consisted of 33 women, of whom 9 were nulliparous and 24 were parous. The FAM group consisted of 17 women, of whom 8 were nulliparous and 9 were parous. The MRM group consisted of 43 women, of whom 7 were nulliparous and 36 were parous. The analysis of the lobular composition of all of the samples from the RM group, which is considered the control group, revealed that Lob 1 represented 22%, Lob 2 represented 37%, and Lob 3 represented 38%, whereas the tissue examined from the FAM and MRM groups contained a preponderance of Lob 1 at 48% and 74%, respectively, over Lob 3, which was 10% and 3%, respectively. When the results of the analysis of breast tissue were separated according to the pregnancy history of the donor, it was found that in the control group or RM, there was a significant difference in lobular composition. Nulliparous women of the RM group showed a preponderance of Lob 1 (46%) over parous women, which contained only 17%, whereas the percentage of Lob 3 in the nulliparous group was significantly lower (7%) than the parous group (48%). In the breast tissues obtained from FAM and MRM, no significant differences in lobular composition were observed, as all of the samples contained a higher concentration of Lob 1, independent of the pregnancy history. The breast tissue of FAM and MRM of parous women had a developmental pattern that was similar to that of nulliparous women of the same group and that was less developed than the breast of parous women of the control group. An important difference between the Lob 1 of the FAM group versus the control (RM) and the MRM group was that most of these lobules had thin ductules with an increase in hyalinization of the intralobular stroma manifested in the whole-mount preparation as an alteration in the branching pattern. The data suggest that the breast tissue of women with invasive cancer, as well as those from a background of familial breast cancer, have an architectural pattern different from the control or normal tissues and that the BRCA-1 or related genes may have a functional role in the branching pattern of the breast during lobular development, mainly in the epithelial stroma interaction.
