MBC – medullary breast carcinoma, IDC-invasive ductal carcinoma, ILC – invasive lobular carcinoma, NCT – non-cancerous tissue; n/a - normal cells were not available within tumor sample; 0 - no staining, 1 - <10% of the positively stained cells, 2 - 10-50% of the positively stained cells, 3 > 50% of the positively stained cells; - one case of IDC which was heavily infiltrated by lymphocytes; ** - PABPC4 positive staining was observed in 50-70% of immune cells.
