BACKGROUND High expression of the polymeric immunoglobulin receptor (PIGR) has previously been associated with a favourable prognosis in a few cancer forms, but its expression and relationship with clinical outcome in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) has not yet been reported. The aim of this study was therefore to examine the clinicopathological correlates(More)
BACKGROUND The critical role of the immune system in controlling cancer progression has become evident and immune modulatory therapy is now approved for clinical use. However, while the majority of studies on the inflammatory tumour microenvironment have focused on the cellular immune response, in particular the prognostic and predictive role of various T(More)
BACKGROUND Natural killer (NK) cells and NK T cells (NKT) are vital parts of tumour immunosurveillance. However, their impact on prognosis and chemotherapy response in periampullary adenocarcinoma, including pancreatic cancer, has not yet been described. METHODS Immune cell-specific expression of CD56, CD3, CD68 and CD1a was analysed by(More)
We report a sex- and depot-specific response of rat adipose tissues to gonadal steroids. The epididymal fat pad in male rats responded to androgens (testosterone and dihydrotestosterone; DHT), but not to 17beta-estradiol (E2), by increased specific activity of the brain type isozyme of creatine kinase (CK). In female rats, the parametrial fat as well as the(More)
Dendritic cells (DC) and tumour-associated macrophages (TAM) are essential in linking the innate and adaptive immune response against tumour cells and tumour progression. These cells are also potential target for immunotherapy as well as providing a handle to investigate immune status in the tumour microenvironment. The aim of the present study was to(More)
