BACKGROUND Tumor growth and invasiveness occur through infiltration of tumor cells into the host cells and by angiogenesis, which is modulated by proteinases and antiproteinases released from tumor cells that carry out tissue remodelling. A number of studies have revealed variations in the plasma levels of serine proteases and their inhibitors among tumor types. PATIENTS AND METHODS By immunological methods we analysed the levels of serine protease inhibitors AAT, ACT and SLPI in newly… CONTINUE READING
