S100A4, a multifunctional protein, has been linked to the invasive growth and metastases of several human cancers. This study investigated the association between S100A4 and overall survival and other clinicopathological features in patients with stage C colonic cancer. Clinical and pathological data were obtained from a prospective hospital registry of 409(More)
Cytogenetic/molecular abnormalities significantly influence the prognosis of patients with acute leukemia. Recently, two genes, p16 and p15, encoding two cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor proteins of the INK4 family of Mr 15,000 and 16,000, respectively, have been localized to 9p21. Remarkably, the p16 locus has been found to encode a second protein, p14,(More)
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors and entails a relatively poor prognosis. Clinical outcome depends on the extent of local and metastatic tumor spread. Results of in vivo and in vitro studies suggest that the balance between matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their inhibitors (tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases TIMPs) is(More)
