<b>Purpose:</b> To investigate the role and the underlying mechanism of scaffold attachment factor B (<i>SAFB</i>) in the progression of colorectal cancer (CRC).<b>Experimental Design:</b> SAFB expression was analyzed in the Cancer Outlier Profile Analysis of Oncomine and in 175 paraffin-embedded archived CRC tissues.
<b/> BRAF mutations in colorectal cancer portend a poor prognosis, with first-line treatment often involving triplet or quadruplet chemotherapy, and single-agent targeted therapy with BRAF inhibitors failing to demonstrate clinical activity.
(3) In mixed subcutaneous (s.c.) xenografts TRAIL-MSC inhibited CRC-tumour growth presumably by apoptosis induction but a substantial proportion of TRAIL-MSC within the total tumour cell number was needed to yield such anti-tumour effect.
(4) This transient loss is not only due to proteolytic breakdown but to a down-regulated synthesis and linked to an epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in tumor cells, and, thereby, zinc-finger-enhancer protein 1 (ZEB1) is the crucial transcriptional repressor of BM components in CRCs.
- To develop evidence-based guideline recommendations through a systematic review of the literature to establish standard molecular biomarker testing of colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues to guide epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) therapies and conventional chemotherapy regimens.
12(S)-Lipoxygenase (LOX) and its product 12(S)-hydroxyeicosatetraenic (HETE) acid have been implicated in angiogenesis and tumour invasion in several tumour types while their role in colorectal cancer progression has not yet been studied.
134 formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded specimens of colorectal carcinoma obtained during operation from 134 patients, 65 males and 69 females, aged 34 approximately 76 with an average age of 51 +/- 11, 16 with differentiated carcinoma and 118 with undifferentiated carcinoma, 4 with infiltration into mucous layer, 21 into submucous layer, 100 into muscular layer, and 5 into serous layer, 25 without lymphatic metastasis and 109 with lymphatic metastasis, 4 in stage IB, 15 in stage II, 90 in stage IIIA, and 27 in stage IIIB by Dukes staging, underwent immunohistochemistry (ABC methods) to determine the expression of TS.
