Purpose: Carcinogenesis is a multistep process with many factors being involved. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and Bcl-2 expression in patients with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and, also whether any differences exist between TNBC and non-TNBC patients in relation with these two parameters.
