BACKGROUND To explore possible correlation between serum lactate dehydrogenase (SLDH) levels and gastric cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 365 patients with gastric cancer. The correlation of SLDH levels with clinicopathologic features and survival rate was studied. RESULTS SLDH levels were closely associated with the(More)
Cancer cells produce a substantial amount of energy through aerobic glycolysis even in the presence of adequate oxygen. Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), a key regulator of glycolysis, reversibly catalyzes the conversion of pyruvate to lactate. Recently, oxamate, an inhibitor of LDH, has been shown to be a promising anticancer agent. However, the detailed(More)
Membrane type 1-matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) has been identified to play a significant role in several types of cancers, but little is known about the significance of MT1-MMP in gastric cancer patients. The purpose of this study is to investigate the involvement of MT1-MMP in tumor progression of gastric cancer. MT1-MMP expression levels were examined(More)
MicroRNA-193b (miRNA-193b) is often differentially expressed and is an important regulator of gene expression in colon cancer. The aim of the present study was to determine whether miRNA-193b affects cell growth in colon cancer and to investigate the potential underlying mechanisms. Patients with colorectal cancer (CRC; n=20) and healthy volunteers (n=10)(More)
Published data on the relation between REF1 polymorphism and colorectal cancer risk showed inconclusive results. The aim of this study was to derive a comprehensive estimation of the association. Data on association between REF1 polymorphism and colorectal cancer risk were summarized. The association was estimated by calculating an odds ratio (OR) with(More)
