BACKGROUND AND AIMS Biosimilar infliximab CT-P13 is approved for all indications of the originator product in Europe. Prospective data on its efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity in inflammatory bowel diseases are lacking. METHODS A prospective, nationwide, multicentre, observational cohort was designed to examine the efficacy, safety, and immunogenicity(More)
BACKGROUND It has been suggested that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) may play a role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). However, the impact of serum MMPs and their inhibitors [tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs)] have scarcely been investigated in the same experimental setting in ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's(More)
Caveolin-1 is a scaffold protein of caveolae that acts as a tumor modulator by interacting with cell adhesion molecules and signaling receptors. The role of caveolin-1 in the pathogenesis of gastric cancer (GC) is currently unknown. We show by confocal immunofluorescence microscopy and immunohistochemistry of biopsies from GC patients (n = 41) that the(More)
BACKGROUND Determination of methylated Septin 9 (mSEPT9) in plasma has been shown to be a sensitive and specific biomarker for colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the relationship between methylated DNA in plasma and colon tissue of the same subjects has not been reported. METHODS Plasma and matching biopsy samples were collected from 24 patients with no(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Adalimumab [ADA] was approved for the treatment of ulcerative colitis [UC] refractory to conventional therapy in 2012 in Europe. Due to the observed discrepancies between clinical trials and practice, data on the outcome of ADA therapy are really needed from the real life. The aim of this study was to estimate the short- and long-term(More)
BACKGROUND Carbonic anhydrase IX has been linked to cancer development and progression. AIM To analyse carbonic anhydrase IX expression and anhydrase inhibition in pancreatic cancer and to correlate these findings with p53 expression and microvessel density. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-seven pancreatic cancers were examined (43 males, 34 females; mean(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Chronic Helicobacter pylori infection affects approximately half of the world, leads to chronic gastritis and peptic ulceration, and is linked to gastric carcinoma. Our aims were to compare the gene expression profile (GEP) of H. pylori-positive and H. pylori-negative gastric erosions and adjacent mucosa to explain the possible role and(More)
BACKGROUND Soluble E-cadherin serum levels as a potential biological marker for gastric cancer were analysed with special consideration to clinical and pathological features. METHODS Seventy-one healthy control subjects and 166 patients with gastric cancer were enrolled. Gastric cancer patients were classified into intestinal-type (51%) and diffuse-type(More)
Matrix metalloproteinases play an important role in extracellular matrix remodelling. It has been proposed that matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) is involved in epithelial damage in ulcerative colitis (UC). However, to our knowledge, no data are available in terms of MMP-9 expression in microscopic colitis. Determination of mucosal protein expression(More)
