Expression of angiopoietin-like 4 (ANGPTL4) in human colorectal cancer: ANGPTL4 promotes venous invasion and distant metastasis.


There is strong evidence that the angiopoietin family is involved in the regulation of tumour progression. Recently, it has been reported that angiopoietin-like 4 (ANGPTL4) expression in cancer cells promotes the metastatic process by increasing vascular permeability. The present study was conducted to examine ANGPTL4 expression and its association with… (More)
