The co-stimulatory ligands of B7-family have been confirmed to play an important role in negatively regulating the T-cell mediated anti-tumor immunity. In addition, these inhibitory molecules are also aberrantly expressed on various human cancers tissues, and significantly associated with cancer progression and patients' poor prognoses. We have previously(More)
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of proteolytic enzymes that contribute to tumorigenesis and metastasis due to their ability to degrade the extracellular matrix (ECM) and basement membrane. In despite of many reports in other solid tumors, the role of membrane type-2 MMP (MT2-MMP) in gastric cancer (GC) remains to be elucidated. The aim of this(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to investigate the Bmi-1 expression and the clinical significance in colon cancer (CC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Bmi-1 expression in tumor tissue and the corresponding normal tissue was detected using immunohistological staining. The correlations between Bmi-1 expression and clinicopathological characteristics and the overall(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the association between of serum IL-33 (sIL-33) level in gastric cancer (GC) patients and progression-free survival (PFS). A total of 62 patients with advanced GC and 32 healthy subjects were enrolled. sIL-33 level was detected in pre-chemotherapy patients, post-chemotherapy patients and healthy subjects, respectively. sIL-33(More)
Background/Abstract: PD-L1 has been an important target of cancer immunotherapy. We have showed that in human gastric cancer tissues, over-expression of PD-L1 was significantly associated with cancer progression and patients' postoperative prognoses. However, as of now, how PD-L1 regulates the biological function of gastric cancer cells still remains(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate IL-33 expression in gastric cancer (GC) and its association with the clinical characteristics and the prognosis. IL-33 protein in tumor and corresponding adjacent tissues were detected by immunohistochemistry in 179 GC patients and clinical features plus prognostic value were analyzed via Pearson’s chi-square test and(More)
