Authors: Hung CS, Wang YC, Guo JW, Yang RN, Lee CL, Shen MH, Huang CC, Huang CJ, Yang JY, Liu CY Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression of keratin 20 (KRT20) and placenta specific 8 (PLAC8) in gastrointestinal (GI) cancer with various differentiation phenotypes. The present study retrospectively investigated archived formalin‑fixed paraffin‑embedded tissue samples from 12 patients at different stages of GI cancer [four with gastric cancer, four with pancreatic cancer and four with colorectal cancer (CRC)]. The stages were pre‑determined, according to differentiation pheno...

Twenty-three paired samples from colorectal tumor sites and the surrounding non-tumor tissues were collected from stage I to IV CRC patients. The microbial compositions of t...

We selected 186 specimens from CRC patients for analyzing the relationship between the expression of HBXIP and the clinical-pathological features by immunohistochemistry. Migration and invasion experiments...

Costa-Lotufo, Cynthia Murakami, Maria C.M. Young, Débora A. Azevedo, Paulo R.H. MorenoAbstractCinnamomum stenophyllum (Meisn.) Vattimo-Gil (Lauraceae) is a native and vulnerable Brazilian species restricted to the Atlantic Forest. The leaf essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation was characterized for the first time by two-dimensional gas chromatography with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC×GC-TOFMS). This analysis resulted in the tentat...

Authors: Mehta S, Farnia B, de la Zerda A, Rahimi R, Wolfson A, Portelance L Abstract Purpose: Smit sleeves are used to facilitate insertion of the intrauterine tandem during brachytherapy for cervical cancer. When a tandem and ovoids system is used the base of the Smit sleeve displaces the ovoids distally. The dosimetric impact of this displacement is not known. Herein we performed a dosimetric analysis to quantify this impact on the integral dose and dose delivered to the organs at risk (OARs). Material and methods: Eleven high-dose-rate brachytherapy plans in which a Smit sleeve was used with a tandem and ov...

Authors: Markezana A, Ahmed M, Kumar G, Zorde-Khvalevsky E, Rozenblum N, Galun E, Goldberg SN Abstract Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine whether moderate hyperthermic doses, routinely encountered in the periablational zone during thermal ablation, activate tumor cells sufficiently to secrete pro-tumorigenic factors that can induce increased proliferation.Material and methods: R3230 rat mammary tumor cells and human cancer cell lines, MCF7 breast adenocarcinoma, HepG2 and Huh7 HCC, and HT-29 and SW480 colon adenocarcinoma, were heated in to 45 ± 1 °C or 43 ±...

It is of interest because of a possible prognostic role of differential expression in tumors and its role as a target for indatuximab, a monoclonal antibody coupled with a cytotoxic agent. To comprehensively analyze ...
