An immunohistochemical study was performed using tissue microarrays and specific antibodies against matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) 1, 2, 7, 9, 11, 13, 14, and their tisullar inhibitors (TIMPs) 1, 2, and 3. More than 2600 determinations on cancer specimens from 131 patients with primary ductal invasive tumours of the breast (65 with and 66 without distant(More)

Lymphatic and/or blood vessel tumoral invasion (LBVI) is a common histopathologic finding of gastric carcinomas, which could make it an additional cost efficient marker and help in the detection of patients at risk for recurrence. The subjects of this study were 144 patients with primary gastric adenocarcinoma, who consecutively underwent surgery. LBVI was(More)
The objective of this work was to evaluate the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) content in gastric cancer, its possible relationship with clinicopathological parameters of tumors and its prognostic significance. Membranous EGFR levels were examined by radioligand binding assays in 110 patients with gastric cancer. The mean follow-up period was 30.7(More)
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a membrane receptor expressed in a variety of solid human cancers and directly related with poor prognosis. The objective of this work was to evaluate the EGFR content in breast carcinomas, its possible relationship with different clinical-pathological parameters, and its potential prognostic significance and(More)
Myosin has raised an interest in cancer research because of its role in tumor progression. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression and clinical relevance of myosin in colorectal cancer (CC). Myosin was detected in CC tumors with recurrence using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight analysis. An immunohistochemical study(More)
Serum prolactin (PRL) concentrations at baseline and after TRH stimulation were determined in 15 healthy women and in 51 premenopausal patients suffering from Gross Cystic Breast Disease. All women were in the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and patients were divided into three groups according to cyst type at presentation. Basal hormone levels were(More)
Lysozyme, one of the major protein components of human milk that is also synthesized by a significant percentage of breast carcinomas, is associated with lesions that have a favorable outcome in female breast cancer. Here we evaluate the expression and prognostic value of lysozyme in male breast cancer (MBC). Lysozyme expression was examined by(More)
BACKGROUND c-erbB-2 is a transmembrane signaling molecule closely related in structure to the epidermal-growth-factor receptor (EGFR) but biologically distinct from it. c-erbB-2 has been implicated in cell transformation and tumor pathogenesis, but very little is known about its content and clinical significance in colorectal cancer. AIMS To evaluate the(More)
