Cell cycle progression is facilitated by cyclin dependent kinases (CDKs) that are activated by cyclins, including Cyclin D1 and inhibited by CDK inhibitors. Evidence of the involvement of cyclin gene alterations and over expression of various cyclins in human cancer is growing. The role of Cyclin D1 in malignant progression of papillary carcinomas of the(More)
Serum CA-15.3 and CEA levels were longitudinally determined in 307 patients with breast carcinoma during postsurgical follow-up and/or therapy. Of 120 patients with no apparent disease, the specificity of marker levels fluctuating within the normal range (true-negative) was 98% for CA-15.3 alone (P = 0.004) and about 88% for CEA alone or for the tests(More)

Serum levels of AFP, hCG and CEA were initially and serially measured in 59 patients with testicular germ cell tumors, and serially in 37 with ovarian and 3 with extragonadal germ cell tumors. Patients with seminoma/dysgerminoma or mature teratoma had normal serum AFP and sporadically slightly elevated hCG. Some patients with embryonal carcinoma, pure or(More)
