AIM: To investigate the clinicopathological significance and prognostic value of caveolin-1 (CAV-1) in both tumor and stromal cells in colorectal cancer (CRC). METHODS: A total of 178 patients with CRC were included in this study. The correlation between CAV-1 expression and clinicopathologic features and survival was studied. RESULTS: CAV-1 expression was detected in tumor and stromal cells. The expression of stromal CAV-1 was closely associated with histological type (P=0...

Aggregate data of the National Clr cac gi s in Lebanon cannot discriminate cance r incidence i n small areas. Trained community members surveyed the permanent population of the Baakline municipality using the verbal autopsy approach. We surveyed 1042 households with at least 1 member living permanently in Baakline during 2000-2008. Data covered 4330 persons yielding 34,143 years of observation and 56 new cases of cancer were reported. Median age at diagnosis varied significantly between men (77 years) and women (56 years)...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression dynamics of CCL21 and its prognostic significance in human stage III/IV colorectal cancer (CRC). CCL21 expression dynamics were detected with western blotting. The expression of CCL21 in CRC tissue microarrays was examined by immunohistochemistry. The optimal cut-point of CCL21 expression was assessed by the X-tile program. The prognostic significance was analyzed using both Kaplan-Meier curves and Cox regression analysis. Western blot analysis demonstrated that CCL21 expression was comparable in the CRC and normal colorectal tissues...

Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase that resides at the sites of integrin clustering, known as focal adhesions. The FAK protein has a molecular mass of 125kDa and is encoded by the FAK gene located on human chromosome 8q24. Structurally, FAK consists of an amino-terminal regulatory FERM domain, a central catalytic kinase domain, two proline-rich motifs, and a carboxy-terminal focal adhesion targeting domain. FAK has been shown to be an important mediator of cell growth, cell proliferation, cell survival and cell migration, all of which are often dysfunctional in cancer cells...

Adjuvant therapy has been shown to reduce recurrence and improve survival in patients with stage III colo-rectal cancer (CRC). However, the use of adjuvant therapy is still much debated in stage II disease. Fluorouracil (5-FU) and folinic acid (FA) are currently the standard adjuvant drug combination. The treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal cance has changed dramatically over the years. The more optimal use of 5-FU in association with FA, the new drugs such as irinotecan and oxaliplatin, and the oral fluoropyrimidines capecitabine and uracil/tegafur(UFT) have contributed to the increased therapeutic option and to improved outcome of patients with metastatic CRC...

PURPOSE: Focal adhesion kinase (FAK), a protein tyrosine kinase that functions in signaling events between cells and their extracellular matrix, is overexpressed in a variety of human solid tumors. To determine whether FAK expression is up-regulated in colorectal cancer, we analyzed FAK mRNA and protein levels in primary colorectal tumors and colorectal liver metastases. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: p125(FAK) expression in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue was studied using immunohistochemical assays on 24 matched primary colorectal carcinomas and colorectal liver metastases as well as 18 different colorectal liver metastases using monoclonal anti-FAK 4...

Using polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based methods, we have isolated cDNA clones of two new members of serine/threonine kinases, STK1 and STK2, from a cDNA library constructed from the BT-20 human breast cancer cell line. STK1 is transcribed as a 1.4 kilobase (kb) mRNA encoding for a protein of 346 amino acids. Based on amino acid sequence analysis, STK1 is 86% identical to the Xenopus p40mo15, a cdc2-related serine/threonine kinase recently found to be the activating kinase for p34cdc2 and p33cdk2. Thus, STK1 is most likely the human homologue of MO15...
