Especially in patients with pancreatic carcinoma (1-5) (89%) the high molecular weight mucin CA 19-9 (MG 210 kD) shows a high specificity (98.5%) and sensitivity (up to 82%) (6-7). The mayor problem in the field of CA 19-9 diagnostics is the lack of satisfying comparability between CA 19-9 test kits: external proficiency studies (8) indicate a discrepancy(More)
Pyruvate orthophosphate dikinase has been identified in the green grains of eight cereal grasses, most of which are classified as C(3) plants. The wheat (Triticum aestivum L. cv. Lerma Rojo) grain enzyme was further investigated: activity was low in very young grains, increased to a maximum at about 25 days after anthesis, then returned to a low level as(More)
BACKGROUND Liver metastasis is associated with a proinflammatory microenvironment and up-regulation of cell adhesion molecules expressed by endothelial cells. The aim of this study was to characterize the interrelations between breast cancer cell-secreted cytokines, macrophages and E-selectin-mediated cancer cell adhesion and their role in metastasis of(More)
The phenotypical composition of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) from colorectal carcinomas was compared with that of intraepithelial lymphocytes of the autologous normal colon mucosa (IEL) and autologous peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL). The CD4+/CD8+ ratios of the freshly isolated TIL, IEL and PBL were comparable and always > 1. CD25+, HLA-DR+ and(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian cancer (OvCa) is a highly aggressive malignoma with a tumor-promoting microenvironment. Infiltration of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) is frequently seen, raising the question of their impact on tumor development. In that context, effects of PMN on human ovarian cancer cells were assessed. METHODS Human epithelial ovarian cancer(More)
In this study fresh frozen tissue samples of benign osseous tumors (five non-osteogenic fibromas, one fibrous dysplasia, one chondromyxoidfibroma), tumors of uncertain biological behaviour (eight cases of histiocytosis X, two giant-cell tumors), and of malignant intraosseous tumors (two malignant fibrous histiocytomas, two malignant histiocytosis, four(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing evidence suggests that a pro-inflammatory microenvironment affects distant metastasis of breast cancer cells, in particular by favoring tumor cell adhesion to endothelium. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of different anti-inflammatory drugs to inhibit this effect in vitro. MATERIALS AND METHODS Breast cancer(More)
