26841725 Recent studies have shown that HOXB13 is a strong candidate for familial Prostate cancer gene.
26728744 The Breast Cancer Index (BCI) is a continuous risk index model of two previously described biomarkers: molecular grade index (MGI) and HOXB13:IL17BR (H:I) ratio
26709644 review the functions attributed to HOXB13, by highlighting the most recent findings supporting the hypothesis that HOXB13 might serve as a novel biomarker for the prognosis of prostate cancer
26638190 The strongest predictors are the BRCA2 mutations, and the highly penetrant G84E mutation in HOXB13
26590121 We showed for the first time that HOXB13 is a sensitive and specific marker for detection of prostatic origin in distant metastases.
26517352 Studies indicate that the germline homeo box B13 protein (HOXB13) p.Gly84Glu mutation is significantly increased the risk of cancers.
26457646 Data show that transcription factor FOXA1 and homeodomain protein HOXB13 colocalize with androgen receptor (AR) at tumor-specific AR binding sites.
26261579 Hoxb-13 overexpression is correlated with tumor angiogenesis, aberrant expression of EMT-associated markers and aggressive clinicopathological characteristics in pancreatic carcinoma.
