5-fluorouracil-related gene expression levels in primary colorectal cancer and corresponding liver metastasis.


Gene expression levels of thymidylate synthase (TS), dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD), thymidine phosphorylase (TP) and orotate phosphoribosyl transferase (OPRT) have been shown to be associated with response to 5-fluorouracil-based therapies. Analyzing these gene expression levels in liver metastases is important to obtain the best prediction of… (More)
