BACKGROUND & AIMS The sarcomatoid change in cholangiocarcinoma (CC) contributes to more aggressive intrahepatic spread and widespread metastasis. Therefore, the aim of this study was to identify the molecular mechanisms of CC metastasis during tumor progression and sarcomatoid change. METHODS Using the subtraction suppression hybridization (SSH) method,(More)
The aim of this study was to identify molecular markers associated with oncogenic differentiation in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Using an unsupervised clustering method with a cDNA microarray, HCC (T) gene expression profiles and corresponding non-tumor tissues (NT) from 40 patients were analyzed. Of total 217 genes, 72 were expressed preferentially in(More)
PURPOSE The poor survival rate of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is in part due to the inability to diagnose patients at an early stage. Therefore, the aim of this study was to search for candidate serum marker for HCC and to test their ability to distinguish a HCC from benign liver disease. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Genome-wide analysis by a microarray in 40(More)
PURPOSE Cyclin B2, a G(2)-M cyclin, is overexpressed in colorectal adenocarcinomas compared with the normal mucosa. This study examined the level of cyclin B2 overexpression according to the histologic findings and investigated the mechanism(s) and clinical implications of cyclin B2 overexpression in colorectal adenocarcinomas. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The(More)
