Extrathoracic solitary fibrous tumors: their histological variability and potentially aggressive behavior.
The histological variability of solitary fibrous tumors may contribute to the difficulty in diagnosing these neoplasms, especially when they arise in extrathoracic sites. Like intrathoracic lesions,Expand

Genetic variation in PSCA is associated with susceptibility to diffuse-type gastric cancer
Gastric cancer is classified into intestinal and diffuse types, the latter including a highly malignant form, linitis plastica. A two-stage genome-wide association study (stage 1: 85,576 SNPs on 188Expand

Cancer related mutations in NRF2 impair its recognition by Keap1-Cul3 E3 ligase and promote malignancy
The nuclear factor E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a master transcriptional activator of genes encoding numerous cytoprotective enzymes that are induced in response to environmental and endogenouslyExpand

Actinin-4, a Novel Actin-bundling Protein Associated with Cell Motility and Cancer Invasion
Regulation of the actin cytoskeleton may play a crucial role in cell motility and cancer invasion. We have produced a monoclonal antibody (NCC- Lu-632, IgM, k) reactive with an antigenic protein thatExpand

Proximal-Type Epithelioid Sarcoma: A Clinicopathologic Study of 20 Cases
We studied the clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features of 20 cases of proximal-type epithelioid sarcoma to identify prognostic factors. The 20 patients ranged in age from 13 to 80 yearsExpand

Prevalence of FOXP3+ Regulatory T Cells Increases During the Progression of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma and Its Premalignant Lesions
Purpose: Antitumor immune response changes drastically during the progression of cancers. Established cancers often escape from the host immune system, although specific immune surveillance operatesExpand
