The Prevalence and Significance of Oestrogen Receptor (ER) Positivity in Breast Cancer at the University Hospital of the West Indies, Jamaica

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.121
Pages: 
795–801
Synopsis: 
Oestrogen receptor (ER) status was positive in 125 (63%) and negative in 74 (37%) patients diagnosed with breast cancer. By comparing the cohorts of ER negative to ER positive patients, one can accurately identify which clinical variables bear clinical significance in this population and are affected by ER status, as well as impact patient outcome.

ABSTRACT

 Objective:  To identify the prevalence of oestrogen receptor (ER) positivity, and determine the relationship of ER status with patient and tumour characteristics, in patients with breast cancer.

Mycophenolate Mofetil in Minimal Change Nephrosis

Issue: 
Pages: 
330–1
Synopsis: 
The use of mycophenolate mofetil in the treatment of steroid resistant minimal change disease has not been extensively studied, particularly in the African Caribbean population. This case highlights its use in steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome in an Afro-Caribbean adolescent.

INTRODUCTION

The use of mycophenolate mofetil in the treatment of steroid resistant minimal change disease has not been extensively studied, particularly in the African Caribbean population. This drug has fewer side effects than most immunosuppressants. On this basis, it may be preferred by both patient and physician. This case report highlights its use in a patient with minimal change nephrosis.
