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)
BACKGROUND Hyaluronic acid (HA), an extracellular high molecular mass polysaccharide, is thought to be involved in the growth and progression of malignant tumours. The objective of this work was to evaluate the cytosolic HA content in resectable colorectal cancer, its possible relationship with clinicopathological parameters of tumours and its prognostic(More)
BACKGROUND Hyaluronan a high-molecular weight glycosaminoglycan, is considered to be involved in the growth and progression of malignant tumours. The objective of this work was to evaluate the cytosolic hyaluronan content in gastric cancer cells, its possible relationship with clinicopathological tumour parameters and its potential prognostic significance.(More)
BACKGROUND The protein encoded by the c-erbB-2 gene is a membrane receptor expressed in a variety of solid human cancers and directly related to poor prognosis. The objective of this work was to evaluate the clinical value of the quantification of membranous oncoprotein levels in gastric cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Membranous c-erbB-2 levels were(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the cytosolic tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) content in colorectal cancer, its possible relationship with the clinicopathologic parameters of tumors, and its prognostic significance. We have therefore examined by immunoenzymatic assay the cytosolic tPA content in tumors and paired surrounding normal mucosa(More)
