Myopodin is an actin-binding protein believed to play a tumor suppressor role in several solid neoplasias. We evaluated the potential differential myopodin methylation and expression and their clinical relevance in colon cancer. The epigenetic silencing of myopodin by hypermethylation was tested in colon cancer cells (n = 5) before and after azacitidine(More)
KISS1 is a metastasis suppressor lost in several solid malignancies. We evaluated the clinical relevance of KiSS-1 methylation and its protein expression in colorectal cancer. The epigenetic silencing of KiSS-1 by hypermethylation was tested in colon cancer cells (n = 5) before and after azacytidine treatment. KiSS-1 methylation was evaluated by(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) can be cured in most cases if diagnosed at an early stage. Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) remains the most widely used cancer marker for determining prognosis of CRC. Previous studies have shown that plasmatic tumor M2 pyruvate kinase (Tu M2-PK) is highly sensitive in CRC detection at an early stage and equally as good as the results(More)
We assessed the contribution of four baseline markers-HLA-DRB1 shared epitope (SE), -308 tumor necrosis factor α gene promoter polymorphism, rheumatoid factor, and anticitrullinated peptide antibodies-for predicting persistent activity (DAS28 score ≥2.6) after one year of followup in a cohort of 201 patients with recent-onset rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or(More)
