Tenascin-C (TNC) is a key molecule in tissue remodeling, and high levels are observed in many diseases, including heart failure, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and cancer. High TNC expression by immunohistochemical analysis has been shown in invasive and metastasizing tissues from a variety of cancers, including colon, lung, brain, and breast. This study was(More)
Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and its primary binding protein IGFBP-3 play an important role in cellular proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis in many tumors, including ovarian cancer. The objective of this study was to determine the clinical significance of the serum levels of IGF-1 and IGFBP-3 in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients. A(More)
Cellular adhesion molecules might be good markers in some types of malignant tumors, useful information in diagnosis and prognosis. The objective of this study was to evaluate the serum levels of epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EPCAM) and vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients. Fifty patients were enrolled(More)
Macrophage migration-inhibitory factor (MIF) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of multiple malignancies, and its expression strongly also affects outcomes of cancer patients. The objective of this study was to determine the clinical significance of serum levels of MIF in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients. A total of 50 patients with a(More)
Transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of multiple malignancies, and its expression also strongly affects the outcomes of cancer patients. The objective of this study was to determine the clinical significance of the serum levels of TGF-β1 in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients. A total of 50 patients(More)
The principal aim of our study was to investigate the usefulness of serum protein and circulating mRNA of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) as a diagnostic and prognostic tool in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Fifty-four HCC patients and age- and sex-matched 20 healthy controls were enrolled into this study. Pretreatment serum IGF-1 and IGF-1 mRNA were(More)
Many studies suggested that cytokines interleukin (IL)-29, IL-32, and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) are implicated in the pathogenesis of malignancies. The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical significance of the serum levels of IL-29, IL-32, and TNF-α in gastric cancer (GC) patients. Fifty-eight GC patients and 20 age- and sex-matched(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical significance of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) and epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) in breast cancer (BC) patients. Ninety-six BC patients and 30 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were enrolled into this study. Pretreatment serum markers were determined by the solid-phase(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the commonest primary malignant cancer of the liver in the world. This study was conducted to investigate the serum levels of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)in HCC patients and the relationship with tumor progression and known prognostic parameters. Fifty-four patients with HCC were investigated. Pretreatment HGF levels were(More)
BACKGROUND Omentin is related with metabolic syndrome and obesity. Pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PA) is a lethal and obesity-linked malignancy. This study was conducted to investigate the serum levels of omentin in patients with PA and the relationship with tumor progression and known prognostic parameters. MATERIAL AND METHODS Serum samples were obtained(More)
