Soluble Fas in malignant pleural effusion and its expression in lung cancer cells.

Abstract

Soluble Fas (sFas) has the ability to block Fas-mediated apoptosis, suggesting that sFas at tumor sites might inhibit tumor cell-killing by immune effector cells. We examined the sFas level in pleural effusion associated with lung cancer. The level of sFas in malignant pleural effusion was significantly higher than those in transudate and tuberculous… (More)
