BACKGROUND Overexpression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is found in many types of neoplasms. The aim of the study was to evaluate EGFR expression in colorectal cancer (CRC) specimens and to determine whether EGFR expression correlates with clinicopathological data and overall survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS Tissue specimens from 181(More)
BACKGROUND CRC caused more than 600,000 estimated deaths in 2008. Dysregulated signaling through the RAS/RAF/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MEK)/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling pathway due to mutations in K-Ras and B-Raf are common events in CRC. METHODS Incidence of mutations in codons 12 and 13 of K-Ras and exons 11 and 15 of(More)
BACKGROUND The oxidative modifications of bioactive macromolecules have important roles in carcinogenesis. Of particular interest are lipid peroxidation products, which are involved in the activation of Nrf2 and endocannabinoids that affect cancer progression. METHODS In lung cancer tissues (squamous cell lung carcinoma - SCC and adenocarcinoma - AC), the(More)
