We examined the expression level of several genes that regulate distinct steps of metastasis in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded, archival specimens of primary human pancreatic carcinomas from patients undergoing curative surgery. The expression of epidermal growth factor receptor, E-cadherin, type IV collagenase [matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) 2 and MMP-9), basic fibroblast growth factor, vascular endothelial growth factor/vascular permeability factor, and interleukin 8 was examined by a… CONTINUE READING
