Many investigators have indicated that overexpression and amplification of matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP-2) and extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) are independent prognostic factors for primary tumors. We studied expression of them in tissues from intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IHCCA) and normal bile ducts, and discussed the occurrence and development of IHCCA. Another goal was to explore possible association of MMP-2 and EMMPRIN with clinicopathologic parameters and… CONTINUE READING
