UNLABELLED Different types of matrix metalloproteinases, including membrane type 1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP/MMP-14) can be easily detected in biological fluids and therefore may be contemplated as putative tumor markers. Although increased activity of MT1-MMP/MMP-14 have already been found in breast cancer, little is known about its circulating levels. The aim of the present study was therefore to evaluate serum levels of active form of membrane type 1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP… CONTINUE READING
