Abstract : The specific aims of our proposal are to develop highly sensitive PCR methods for rapid, specific diagnosis of breast cancers on the basis of their estrogen and progesterone receptor expression. The results we have obtained indicate the feasibility of identifying and quantitating various forms of the hormone receptors in a small amount of tumor tissue by molecular assays.
