Serum levels of lipid associated sialic acid (LASA), mucoid proteins (MP) and hexoses (galactose + mannose) were measured in 41 breast cancer patients, 14 patients with benign breast diseases and 36 healthy age matched female individuals. In breast carcinoma patients, we have observed significant increase in the levels of the three markers compared with the(More)
Serum levels of total sialic acid (TSA), lipid bound sialic acid (LSA), heat stable alkaline phosphatase (HSAP) and fucose were measured in 39 patients with breast carcinoma, 14 patients with benign breast diseases and 35 healthy female individuals. Elevated levels of the four biomarkers in breast carcinoma were significant when compared with controls (p(More)
BACKGROUND Cytogenetic studies, framed to assess the possible genomic damage caused by areca nut consumption (without tobacco and not as a component of betel quid), were performed among areca nut chewers, which included normal people who chew areca nuts, patients with oral submucous fibrosis, and patients with oral cancer, and healthy nonchewing controls.(More)
Smokeless tobacco consumption is causally associated with oral cavity cancers; however, extensive cytogenetic studies have not been done. In the present study, individuals consuming dry snuff or tobacco with lime have been studied for frequency of micronucleated cells (MNC) in exfoliated buccal mucosa and chromosome aberrations (CA) and sister chromatid(More)
Frequencies of micronucleated cells (MNCs) were analyzed in the exfoliated buccal mucosa of normal healthy individuals from different parts of India who were regularly using either areca nut alone, mava, tamol, tobacco with lime, dry snuff or masheri. The analyses were also carried out among oral submucous fibrosis patients who had the habit of chewing(More)
MicroRNA (miRNA) deregulation contributes to cancer pathogenesis. However, analysis of miRNAs in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) has been hindered by a focus on cell lines, limited number of miRNAs examined, and lack of copy number data. To address these restrictions, we investigated genomewide miRNA expression and copy number data in 86 DLBCLs.(More)
To establish a blood-based biochemical profile for diagnosis and management of human leukemias, serum total sialic acid/total protein, lipid bound sialic acid, fucose/total protein and seromucoid fraction (quantitated as its hexoses and protein contents) levels were measured by highly specific spectrophotometric methods. Compared to the controls (n = 150),(More)
Because of carbohydrate alterations in malignant cells, serum glycoproteins have drawn considerable attention. In the current investigation we determined total sialic acid (TSA), lipid bound sialic acid (LSA), protein bound hexoses (galactose + mannose), fucose, hexosamines (galactosamine + glucosamine) and mucoid protein concentrations in the serum of(More)
BACKGROUND Existing prostate cancer cell lines have limitations. METHODS Cells were characterized using Western blotting, immunohistochemistry, invasion into Matrigel, and by studying xenograft tumors. RESULTS We describe a cell line (PacMetUT1) isolated from a lymph node of a 57-year-old male with prostate cancer. Compared to existing prostate cancer(More)
