Regulation of matrix metalloproteinase-9 transcription in squamous cell carcinoma of uterine cervix: the role of human papilloma
Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) plays an important role in initiation and progression of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of human uterine cervix.
The NOLA2 and RPS3A genes as highly informative markers of human squamous cell carcinoma of lung
An analysis of the libraries revealed two genes, NOLA2 and RPS3A, whose expression in patients with squamous cell carcinoma increased by 70%.
A high frequency of enhanced expression of these genes in the cancer makes them highly informative markers of squamous cell carcinoma, which, together with other markers, can be used for reliable diagnosis of the disease.
To reveal early genetic alterations of chromosome 6 that are important for CC progression, we analyzed the loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in DNAs from 45 CIN cases, 47 microcarcinomas, and 19 invasive squamous cell carcinomas stage IB.
We investigated 37 head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) at different stages, using immunohistochemical staining for CD4+ infiltrates and real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) detection of CD4 mRNA.
Effect of the Hypoxic Cell Sensitizer Isometronidazole on Local Control of Two Human Squamous Cell Carcinomas after Fractionated
Higher incidence of positive staining wasalso found in squamous cell carcinomas without hilar or mediastinal lymph node metastasis (16/27, 59.3%) than in those with hilar or mediastinal lymph node involvement (4/19, 21.1%;P>amp;lt;0.05).
Basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas comprise the majority of non-melanoma skin cancers.
Decreased expression of the human immunoglobulin J-chain gene in squamous cell cancer and adenocarcinoma of the lungs
The content of the J chain and the transcription level of its gene were studied in normal and tumor cells at various stages of squamous cell cancer and adenocarcinoma of the lungs by RT-PCR and immunoblotting.
The positive expression rate (87.5%) and nuclear expression rate of adenocarcinoma (62.5%) were apparently higher than those of squamous cell cancer (40.0% and 17.1%) (P>amp;lt;0.01).
Basaloid squamous cell cancer arising in Barrett's esophagus
In this report we describe the use of SRS in treating a patient with a squamous cell cancer of the oropharynx.
