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)
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)
BACKGROUND Hospital readmission rate is receiving increasing regulatory scrutiny. Patients with cirrhosis have high hospital readmissions rates but the relationship between frequent readmissions and barriers to transplantation remains unexplored. The goal of this study was to determine risk factors for frequent readmissions among patients with cirrhosis and(More)
