Increased levels of cryptic collagen epitope HU177 in the sera of melanoma patients have been shown to be associated with thicker primary melanomas and with the nodular histologic subtype. In this study, we investigate the association between HU177 shedding in the sera and clinical outcome in terms of disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS).(More)
9044 Background: Cleavage of type IV collagen during extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling leads to exposure of cryptic regulatory sites within the ECM shown to be involved in tumor angiogenesis. Increased levels of a soluble form of the cryptic epitope HU177 in sera of melanoma patients have been shown to be associated with greater tumor thickness and(More)
9074 Background: Melanoma patients (pts) with brain metastases (BM) have limited survival, and BM remains an exclusion criterion in most clinical trials. A recent retrospective analysis at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) identified 4 clinical variables that were associated with worse post BM survival (Raizer J et al, Neuro Oncol 2008).
