PURPOSE Recent studies have shown that cyclooxygenase (Cox)-2 may be involved in colorectal carcinogenesis. We aimed to determine whether Cox-2 expression in itself can predict outcome of colorectal cancer patient after surgery. In addition, the expression of Cox-1 was also evaluated. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Tissue samples of primary and secondary tumors from(More)
Reported cases of intrapancreatic schwannomas have recently increased in the literature. However, none of these cases were diagnosed clearly as schwannoma preoperatively. We herein describe the clinicopathologic findings of a solitary benign schwannoma occurring in the head of the pancreas. Additionally, the differential diagnosis versus other cystic- and(More)
AIM To evaluate the 5-lipoxygenases (Loxs) expression level in human colorectal cancer specimens in order to determine its clinicopathologic significance in human tumorigenesis. METHODS The relative quantity of 5-Lox mRNA in paired 91 colorectal tumor and adjacent normal mucosa samples was determined by real time quantitative PCR. Additionally, the(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the expression of cyclooxygenase-2 in human breast cancer using immunohistochemistry and to determine whether the expression of cyclooxygenase-2 is associated with clinicopathological factors in invasive ductal breast carcinoma. METHODS Cyclooxygenase-2 expression was investigated by immunohistochemistry in 30(More)
PURPOSE Several lines of experimental evidence indicated that over-expression of vascular endothelial growth factor-C and cyclooxygenase-2 genes promotes angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis, both of which are essential for the growth and spreading of tumor cells. This study was designed to evaluate the coexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor-C and(More)
BACKGROUND Angiogenesis is required for growth and metastasis of colorectal cancer (CRC), and several positive regulators of tumor angiogenesis have been identified. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), known to be elevated in several human cancers, regulates angiogenesis by inducing angiogenic factors. The aim of this study was to clarify the levels and evaluate the(More)
