Several reports have shown a different distribution of malignant lymphoma (ML) in Asian and Western populations. The purpose of our survey was to elucidate whether there are substantial differences in the frequencies of subtypes of ML between different geographical areas. All entities diagnosed as ML between June 1995 and December 2007 were selected(More)
AIMS Osteopontin (OPN) and LIM homeobox transcription factor 1, alpha (LMX1A) are important factors related to tumour progression, invasion and metastasis in human cancers. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that expression of OPN and of LMX1A correlate with the World Health Organization (WHO) grading system of primary brain tumours. METHODS(More)
The aim of this study was to test whether expression of EMMPRIN and fascin correlates with clinicopathologic parameters of pancreatobiliary adenocarcinoma. Immunohistochemical analysis of EMMPRIN and fascin was performed in 100 surgical specimens obtained from Chinese patients, including 18 well-differentiated, 62 moderately differentiated, and 20 poorly(More)
Primary extraosseous Ewing sarcoma is a rare entity, especially in the spinal epidural site. Less than 20 cases have been reported in the literature. Here, we present a previously healthy 12-year-old boy who complained of low back pain, progressive gait disturbance and weakness of right lower extremity for nearly one month before admission. Magnetic(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the expression of matriptase and survivin in breast carcinoma and correlate with clinicopathological parameters. METHODS Immunohistochemical analysis of matriptase and survivin were performed in tissue microarray slides of 290 cases, including 11 normal breast tissue; 27 fibrocystic disease; 17 fibroadenoma;(More)
OBJECT This study investigated the specific preoperative MRI features of patients with intracranial meningiomas that correlate with pathological grade and provide appropriate preoperative planning. METHODS From 2006 to 2012, 120 patients (36 men and 84 women, age range 20-89 years) with newly diagnosed symptomatic intracranial meningiomas undergoing(More)
Matriptase is a serine protease expressed by tumors of surface epithelial origin. We tested the expressions of matriptase and hepatocyte growth factor activator inhibitor-1 (HAI-1) maybe associated with the progression of colorectal adenocarcinoma. Immunohistochemical analysis of matriptase and HAI-1 was performed in tissue microarray slides of 91(More)
The discrimination of borderline from malignant primary breast phyllodes (PT) tumor is still unclear. We studied 22 PT cases to investigate the immunohistochemical expression (staining of stromal CD10, SMA [smooth muscle actin], and vimentin) as well as the features of focal glandular atypia to determine whether these correlated with the histopathologic(More)
High-grade primary brain tumors possessed poor outcome due to invasiveness. Extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) stimulates peri-tumoral fibroblasts to secrete matrix metalloproteinase and promote invasiveness. This study hypothesized that high-grade brain tumors overexpress EMMPRIN. Analyzing the public delinked database from the Gene(More)
