Proteinases are involved in tumour invasion and metastasis. Several matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have been shown to be increased in various human carcinomas. We assessed the levels of MMP-2 (gelatinase A) and MMP-9 (gelatinase B) in 50 gastric carcinomas and corresponding mucosa using quantitative gelatin zymography. Both MMP levels were significantly(More)
The plasminogen activation cascade is involved in carcinogenesis, invasion and metastasis. In this study plasminogen activators and their type 1 inhibitor were evaluated in colonic tissue from 19 patients with familial adenomatous polyposis coli, an inherited disorder characterised by the presence of thousands of adenomatous polyps in the colorectum which(More)
Despite the advances in pre-, peri- and post-operative medical care of colorectal carcinoma patients, the prognosis has improved only marginally over recent decades. Thus, additional prognostic indicators would be of great clinical value to select patients for adjuvant therapy. In previous studies we found that colorectal carcinomas have a marked increase(More)
BACKGROUND National guidelines recommend that fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) is performed in all patients being considered for radical treatment of oesophageal or oesophago-gastric cancer without computerised tomography scan (CTS) evidence of metastasis. Guidance also mandates that all patients with cancer have(More)
In this paper we present a statistical translit-eration technique that is language independent. This technique uses Hidden Markov Model (HMM) alignment and Conditional Random Fields (CRF), a discriminative model. HMM alignment maximizes the probability of the observed (source, target) word pairs using the expectation maximiza-tion algorithm and then the(More)
