Preoperative serum levels of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) and survival of breast cancer among Korean women
Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, 06/08/2012
Song N et al. – The results suggest that the preoperative serum levels of MMP–2 were associated with the survival in breast cancer patients in ER negative, higher histological grade, or higher nuclear grade breast cancers. The results indicate that serum levels of MMP–2 may play a role as prognostic biomarker in breast cancer survival.
