BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Alteration of the p53 gene product occurs frequently during progression of colorectal cancer. Recently, mutated p53 protein was found to induce the production of anti-p53 antibodies in the serum of patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between p53 status in serum and chemosensitivity in resectable(More)

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is known as a potent inducer of angiogenesis in various human cancers. Serum VEGF concentrations of colorectal cancer patients was assessed for their clinical significance as a tumor marker. Serum samples were obtained at admission from 24 healthy volunteers and 111 patients with colorectal cancer. Preoperative(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical use of p53 autoantibodies as a marker in the postoperative monitoring of colorectal cancer. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING Teaching hospital, Japan. SUBJECTS 40 patients with colorectal cancer who had p53 autoantibodies in their serum preoperatively. INTERVENTIONS Serial assay of p53 autoantibodies by ELISA(More)
We report a patient with rectal ulcer with severe stenosis, who underwent urgent surgical treatment for perforated peritonitis. The 54-year-old man suddenly developed cramping abdominal pain and fever while hospitalized, with signs of peritoneal irritation. An emergency laparotomy was performed, and severe stenosis of the rectum and a perforated lesion on(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Preclinical assessment of radio-labeled monoclonal antibodies is essential to the understanding of target-specific tumor localization. The purpose of this study is to prepare for fundamental evaluation of antibodies and to validate the clinical usefulness of the candidate considered useful for practice through preclinical assessment.

The expression of oncogenes (c-myc, c-fos, c-Ki-ras, c-Ha-ras, and p53) was examined by Northern blot analysis using freshly isolated human colorectal and gastric cancers and noncancerous portions as the controls. Remarkably high levels of c-myc expression were found in colorectal cancers (eight of 11), but not in gastric cancers. High levels of c-myc(More)
p53 protein overexpression was found to induce the production of antibodies in patient serum and, recently, the easy detection of serum antibodies has been made possible. The aim of this study is to determine the significance of serum p53 antibodies in patients with primary colorectal adenocarcinoma in comparison with their clinicopathological features, and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The integration of HBV DNA is thought to be involved in the initial stage of hepatocarcinogenesis, and it has been reported that transactivating factors encoded by the X and preS2/S genes stimulate transcription of multiple viral and cellular genes. We assessed the possible contributions of hepatitis B virus integration to the occurrence of(More)
