The interleukin-1 family of cytokines and receptors in human breast cancer: implications for tumor progression.
We have previously described the expression of interleukin cytokines (IL)-1alpha, IL-1beta, and IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) in human breast cancer (HBC) tissue. Based on our previous studies,Expand

Angiogenesis and prostate cancer: in vivo and in vitro expression of angiogenesis factors by prostate cancer cells.
OBJECTIVES Recently, it was confirmed that angiogenesis is important in the development and spread of a variety of human cancers, including prostate cancer (PCa). Tumor neovascularization is thoughtExpand

Interleukin-1 Family Expression in Human Breast Cancer: Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist
Abstract We hypothesize that interleukin-1α, β, and receptor antagonist (IL-1α, IL-1β, and IL-1ra, respectively) are present and tumor cell associated in human breast cancer (HBC). We believe theExpand

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in human prostate cancer: in situ and in vitro expression of VEGF by human prostate cancer cells.
PURPOSE A growing body of literature supports the role of angiogenesis in the development and spread of a variety of human cancers including prostate cancer (Pca). Angiogenesis is controlled byExpand

Expression of interleukin-8 receptors on tumor cells and vascular endothelial cells in human breast cancer tissue.
UNLABELLED Recently, we demonstrated the presence of Interleukin-8 (IL-8) in human breast cancer (HBC) tissue. We hypothesize that the IL-8 receptors are present and play a role in tumor cell andExpand

Ultrasound-guided optical tomographic imaging of malignant and benign breast lesions: initial clinical results of 19 cases.
The diagnosis of solid benign and malignant tumors presents a unique challenge to all noninvasive imaging modalities. Ultrasound is used in conjunction with mammography to differentiate simple cystsExpand

Noninvasive monitoring of breast cancer during neoadjuvant chemotherapy using optical tomography with ultrasound localization.
The purposes of this study were 1) to investigate the feasibility of using optical tomography in the near-infrared (NIR) spectrum combined with ultrasound (US) localization (NIR/US) in monitoringExpand

Comparison of the sensitivity and specificity of the CA19-9 and carcinoembryonic antigen assays in detecting cancer of the pancreas.
In this study, we determined the sensitivity and specificity of the new serum assay CA19-9 in detecting adenocarcinoma of the pancreas and compared the results with those of the serum assay toExpand

Evaluation of the utility of a radioimmunoassay for serum CA 19-9 levels in patients before and after treatment of carcinoma of the pancreas.
By radioimmunoassay we determined circulating levels of a tumor-associated antigen, CA 19-9, in 47 patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma, to learn if serial testing was useful in predictingExpand
