Because of the low overall response rates of 10-47% to targeted cancer therapeutics, there is an increasing need for predictive biomarkers. We aimed to identify genes predicting response to five already approved tyrosine kinase inhibitors. We tested 45 cancer cell lines for sensitivity to sunitinib, erlotinib, lapatinib, sorafenib and gefitinib at the(More)

BACKGROUND Phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted in chromosome 10 (PTEN) loss of function is frequently detected in advanced colorectal cancer. Its detection is thought to have prognostic significance and it is being considered to predict responsiveness to anti-EGFR therapy. Unfortunately, while immunohistochemical assessment of PTEN expression is(More)
BACKGROUND Prognostic markers of bone metastatic clear cell renal cell cancer (ccRCC) are poorly established. We tested prognostic value of HIF1α/HIF2α and their selected target genes in primary tumors and corresponding bone metastases. RESULTS Expression of HIF2α was lower in mRCC both at mRNA and protein levels (p/mRNA/=0.011, p/protein/=0.001) while(More)
Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a malignant tumor of the salivary glands but identical tumors can also arise from the breast. Despite their similar histomorphological appearance the salivary gland- and the breast-derived forms differ in their clinical features: while ACC of the salivary glands (sACC) have an agressive clinical course, the breast-derived(More)
