OBJECTIVE To examine the expression of CD147 in 60 human endometriosis lesions and how CD147 regulates migration and apoptosis in human uterine epithelial (HESs) cells. DESIGN Experimental clinical study and laboratory-based investigation. SETTING Hospital and academic research center. PATIENT(S) Sixty women with chocolate cysts and 16 control women(More)
CONTEXT Human endometriosis (EMS) is characterized by insufficient apoptosis. Our previous studies have shown elevated CD147 expression in human endometriotic tissues and its involvement in endometrial cell apoptosis. However, the exact underlying mechanism remains elusive. OBJECTIVE The objective was to examine the correlation of the highly expressed(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 3 (VEGFR-3) is a receptor for the vascular endothelial growth factor C and D (VEGF-C and D) and plays a critical role in the development of embryonic vascular system and regulation of tumor lymphangiogenesis. In this report, we generated a novel panel of 17 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against human VEGFR-3 and(More)
Chronic coronary heart disease (cCHD) is characterized by atherosclerosis, which progressively narrows the coronary artery lumen and impairs myocardial blood flow. Restoration of occluded coronary vessels with newly formed collaterals remains an ideal therapeutic approach due to the need for redirecting blood flow into the ischemic heart. In this study, we(More)
In our previous study, we have produced a neutralizing mAb of vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 3 (VEGFR-3), specifically BDD073, which could inhibit angiogenesis in the CAM model. However, the clinical application of BDD073 is restricted due to its mouse origin, which might cause human anti-mouse antibody reactions. Herein, we generated(More)
Endometriotic tissues exhibit high migration ability with the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. Our previous studies have demonstrated that cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) acts as a tumor suppressor regulating cell migration. In the present study, we explored whether CFTR plays a role in the development of human endometriosis.(More)
