Elevated levels of the bioactive lipid lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) are detectable in the majority of patients with both early- and late-stage ovarian cancer, suggesting that LPA promotes early events in ovarian carcinoma dissemination. LPA contributes to the development, progression, and metastasis of ovarian cancer in part by inducing the expression of(More)
Ovarian cancer metastasizes via exfoliation of free-floating cells and multicellular aggregates from the primary tumor to the peritoneal cavity. A key event in EOC metastasis is disruption of cell-cell contacts via modulation of intercellular junctional components including cadherins. Ascites is rich in lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), a bioactive lipid that(More)
