Ginsenoside-Rb2 derived from ginseng inhibited invasiveness to the basement membrane of endometrial cancer cell lines Ishikawa. HHUA and HEC-1-A cells. These cells dominantly expressed matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 (gelatinase A) among MMPs by zymography. Ginsenoside-Rb2 suppressed the expression and activity of MMP-2, but did not alter the expression of(More)
OBJECTIVE ETS-1 has been identified as a proto-oncogene and a transcription factor for tumor angiogenesis, which is essential for the growth, invasion and metastasis of solid tumors. The aim is to investigate the clinical implications of ETS-1 expression in peritoneal metastatic lesions of ovarian cancers. METHODS In primary tumors and peritoneal(More)
BACKGROUND Angiogenesis is essential for development, growth and advancement of solid tumors. During angiogenesis, ETS-1 is strongly expressed in vascular endothelial cells and the adjacent interstitial cells, while the inhibition of ETS-1 expression leads to suppression of angiogenesis. This prompted us to study the clinical implications of ETS-1 in(More)
BACKGROUND Angiogenesis is essential for development, growth and advancement of solid tumors. ETS-1 has been recognized as a candidate for tumor angiogenic transcription factor. This prompted us to study the clinical implications of ETS-1-related angiogenesis in uterine cervical cancers. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty patients underwent curative resection for(More)
The relative overexpression of estrogen receptor (ER)-alpha exon 5 splicing variant, the disrupted synchronization of ER-beta and ER-alpha expressions, and the suppression of progesterone receptor (PR) form A expression as a transcriptional repressor might be related to metastatic potential of uterine endometrial cancers, leading to poor patient prognosis(More)
BACKGROUND Angiogenesis is essential for development, growth and advancement of solid tumors. The tumor-associated macrophage has been recognized among inflammatory cells as a candidate for supplying tumor angiogenic factors. Interleukin (IL)-8 is assumed to be a macrophage-derived mediator of angiogenesis. This prompted us to study the clinical(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has been identified as an important factor for tumour angiogenesis, which is essential for the growth, invasion and metastasis of solid tumours. Significantly increased VEGF level from the primary tumour to the metastatic lesion of ovarian cancers was found in 8 of 30 cases. The 24-month survival rate of the(More)
ETS-1 has been identified as a transcription factor involved in tumor angiogenesis, which is essential for the growth, invasion, and metastasis of solid tumors. This result prompted us to study whether ETS-1 works as an angiogenic mediator in ovarian cancers. Immunohistochemical staining revealed that ETS-1 was expressed in vascular endothelial cells and in(More)
ETS-1 has been identified as a transcription factor for angiogenesis, which is essential for the development and growth of the uterine endometrium. This characteristic prompted us to study whether ETS-1 functions as an angiogenic mediator in uterine endometrium. Immunohistochemical staining revealed that the localization of ETS-1 was similar to that of(More)
