BACKGROUND Stromal cells, including cancer-associated myofibroblasts (CAMs), are recognised to be determinants of cancer progression, but the mechanisms remain uncertain. The chemokine-like protein, chemerin, is upregulated in oesophageal squamous cancer (OSC) CAMs compared with adjacent tissue myofibroblasts (ATMs). In this study, we hypothesised that(More)
DNA damage response failure may influence the efficacy of DNA-damaging treatments. We determined the expression of 16 genes involved in distinct DNA damage response pathways, in association with the response to standard therapy. Twenty patients with locoregionally advanced, squamous cell head and neck carcinoma were enrolled. The treatment included(More)
Stromal cells influence epithelial function in both health and disease. Myofibroblasts are abundant stromal cells that influence the cellular microenvironment by release of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins, growth factors, proteases, cytokines, and chemokines. Cancer-associated myofibroblasts (CAMs) differ from adjacent tissue (ATMs) and normal tissue(More)
