Adhesion receptors in malignant transformation and dissemination of gastrointestinal tumors

Abstract

Changes in the expression and function of adhesion molecules on the surface of cancer cells are important characteristics in the development of gastrointestinal malignancies and might be used in the future as prognostic factors or as new targets for diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. In esophageal cancer a down-regulation of the E-cadherin receptor and… (More)
