Tumour cells have to undergo gene expression changes in order to metastasise and adapt to a new site. We investigated these changes in liver metastases of colorectal cancer by using genome-wide microarray analysis to profile the expression of 48 primary tumours and 28 liver metastases. Statistical analysis of these expression profiles using the significance(More)
The association between cell proliferation and the malignant potential of colon cancer is not well understood. Here, we evaluated this association using a colon-specific gene proliferation signature (GPS). The GPS was derived by combining gene expression data obtained from the analysis of a cancer cell line model and a published colon crypt profile. The GPS(More)
BACKGROUND We have recently reported an inverse relationship between colon cancer progression and tumour proliferative activity. Here, we extend our findings by evaluating the proliferative activity of liver metastatic lesions and primary colorectal cancers (CRC) that differ in their metastatic potential. METHODS Using an earlier established multi-gene(More)
Mounting molecular evidence suggests that invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) is developing from in situ lesions, atypical lobular hyperplasia (ALH), and lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS). However, little is known about the mechanisms promoting the progression of lobular breast cancer (LBC) to invasive disease. Here, we investigated whether c-Src kinase, an(More)
Compromised quality of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE)-derived DNA has compounded the use of archival specimens for array-based genomic studies. Recent technological advances have led to first successes in this field; however, there is currently no general agreement on the most suitable platform for the array-based analysis of FFPE DNA. In this(More)
BACKGROUND The immune response has been proposed to be an important factor in determining patient outcome in colorectal cancer (CRC). Previous studies have concentrated on characterizing T cell populations in the primary tumour where T cells with regulatory effect (Foxp3+ Tregs) have been identified as both enhancing and diminishing anti-tumour immune(More)
