Tumour growth depends on neovascularisation and tumour cell proliferation. Factor VIII-related antigen (F-VIII RA) localises to vascular endothelium. Expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) is correlated with cell proliferation. We investigated the correlation between the expression of these antigens and prognosis in gastric carcinoma. A(More)
T lymphocytes, activated by interleukin 2 during an anti-tumour response, release soluble interleukin 2 receptors (sIL-2R) into the bloodstream. We analysed the prognostic value of the serum sIL-2R level in gastric cancer. Serum concentration of sIL-2R in 96 gastric cancer patients and 100 healthy control subjects' was measured by enzyme-linked(More)
A new human extrahepatic bile duct carcinoma cell line, designated OCUCh-LM1, was established from a liver metastatic lesion in a 61-year-old male. OCUCh-LM1 cells proliferated in a monolayered sheet with a population doubling time of 31 h. OCUCh-LM1 cells had an aneuploid pattern with a DNA index of 1.76, and chromosome counts showed a unimode of 63.(More)
