Genetic alterations of Wnt signaling pathway–associated genes in hepatocellular carcinoma
Background and Aim:  Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide. Recently, abnormal activation of the Wnt pathway has been found to be involved in the carcinogenesisExpand

Interleukin-21 increases direct cytotoxicity and IFN-γ production of ex vivo expanded NK cells towards breast cancer cells.
BACKGROUND/AIM Interleukin-21(IL-21) stimulates cytotoxicity and interferon-γ (IFN-γ) production in natural killer (NK) cells. However, little has been reported on the stimulatory effect of IL-21 onExpand

Effectiveness of sputum cytology using ThinPrep® method for evaluation of lung cancer
Sputum cytology is a non‐invasive test for evaluating lung cancer. But, its sensitivity is yet lower than other tests. ThinPrep® (TP) is an automated cytopreparatory method that has mucolytic andExpand

Promoter methylation status of hMLH1, hMSH2, and MGMT genes in colorectal cancer associated with adenoma–carcinoma sequence
PurposeEpigenetic silencing of the DNA mismatch repair genes has been poorly described in colorectal carcinomas showing the classic adenoma–carcinoma pathway of carcinogenesis. The aim of this studyExpand

Correlation between cyclooxygenase-2 and tumor angiogenesis in non-small cell lung cancer.
The role of COX-2 expression and angiogenesis of lung cancer is yet to be delineated. Eighty four non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) specimens were evaluated for COX-2 expression, microvessel densityExpand

CDX‐2 homeobox gene expression in human gastric carcinoma and precursor lesions
Background:  Recent studies have demonstrated that CDX‐2 is expressed in the intestinal metaplasia of the stomach and intestinal‐type gastric cancer. To address the role of CDX‐2 in carcinogenesis ofExpand
