Increased infiltration of tumor associated macrophages is associated with poor prognosis of bladder carcinoma in situ after intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin instillation.
PURPOSE Tumor associated macrophages can regulate the growth of various cancers positively or negatively. Intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin instillation is now gold standard treatment for bladderExpand

One-month relative dose intensity of not less than 50% predicts favourable progression-free survival in sorafenib therapy for advanced renal cell carcinoma in Japanese patients.
BACKGROUND Sorafenib is a multikinase inhibitor used as a second-line treatment for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). However, it is very difficult to estimate sorafenib dosage because it isExpand

Decreased infiltration of macrophage scavenger receptor‐positive cells in initial negative biopsy specimens is correlated with positive repeat biopsies of the prostate
Macrophage scavenger receptor (MSR)‐positive inflammatory cells and tumor‐associated macrophages (TAMs) have been reported to regulate the growth of various cancers. In this study, the infiltrationExpand
