Micropapillary pattern and poorly differentiated clusters represent the same biological phenomenon in colorectal cancer: a proposal for a change in terminology.
OBJECTIVES Colorectal carcinomas (CRCs) with a micropapillary pattern and those showing high counts of poorly differentiated clusters (PDCs) are characterized by a higher probability to develop nodalExpand

The expression of adiponectin receptors Adipo-R1 and Adipo-R2 is associated with an intestinal histotype and longer survival in gastric carcinoma
Background: Adiponectin (ApN) is a 30 kDa adipocytokine which mediates an antineoplastic effect after binding to its receptors, Adipo-R1 and Adipo-R2. The expression of these receptors has beenExpand

Increased ratio of vascular endothelial growth factor to semaphorin3A is a negative prognostic factor in human meningiomas
Semaphorin3A (SEMA3A) is an anti‐angiogenic factor which is expressed in human meningiomas in association with low microvessel density (MVD). It competes with vascular endothelial growth factorExpand

Diagnostic value of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) immunoexpression in follicular-patterned lesions of the thyroid gland
Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) is a protein which participates in iron trafficking and which is involved in cancerogenesis and cancer progression. Since its over-expression hasExpand
