In this study, we investigated the potential role of CD26 in ovalbumin (OVA)-induced airway inflammation using CD26 gene knockout mice. Compared with WT counterparts, CD26(-/-) mice showed an obviously enhanced tissue response and denser pulmonary infiltrates containing eosinophils around vessels and in the parenchyma after OVA sensitization and challenge.(More)
To compare the stomatogastric nervous system of the crayfish Cherax destructor with those of other decapod species, the distribution of FLRF (Phe-Leu-Arg-Phe) amide-, proctolin- and crustacean cardioactive peptide (CCAP)-like immunoreactivities was studied in the stomatogastric nervous system and in neurosecretory structures by using wholemount(More)
Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) promote tumor progression and have an effect on survival in human cancer. However, little is known regarding their influence on tumor progression and prognosis in human hilar cholangiocarcinoma. We analyzed surgically resected tumor specimens of hilar cholangiocarcinoma (n = 47) for distribution and localization of TAMs,(More)
Tumor necrosis and peritumoral fibrosis have both been suggested to have a prognostic value in selected solid tumors. However, little is known regarding their influence on tumor progression and prognosis in hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HC). Surgically resected tumor specimens of HC (n = 47) were analyzed for formation of necrosis and extent of peritumoral(More)
The presence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a significant complication of cirrhosis because it changes the prognosis and the treatment of the patients. By now, contrast-enhanced CT and MR scans are the most reliable tools for the diagnosis of HCC; however, in some cases, a biopsy of the tumor is necessary for the final diagnosis. The aim of the study(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Angiopoietins (Angs) play a pivotal role in angiogenesis and inflammation, and are associated with prognosis in malignancies. Monocyte express Ang-receptor TIE2 and correlate with prognosis in cancer. We aimed to investigate the prognostic value of Angs and TIE2-expressing monocytes (TEMs) in cholangiocarcinoma. METHODS We(More)
