Clinical implications of epithelial cell plasticity in cancer progression
[Abstract] In the last few years, the role of epithelial cell plasticity in cancer biology research has gained increasing attention. This concept refers to the ability of the epithelial cells to dynamically switch between ...
Circulating levels of GDF15, MMP7 and miR-200c as a poor prognostic signature in gastric cancer
(Future Science, 2014-06-20)
[Abstract] Aim: To analyze GDF15 and MMP7 serum levels as diagnostic biomarkers in gastric cancer (GC) patients. The prognostic value of GDF15 and MMP7 serum levels in combination with miR-200c blood expression was also ...
Circulating microRNAs: molecular microsensors in gastrointestinal cancer
[Abstract] MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small molecules of single strand non-coding RNAs, which are able to regulate gene expression. miRNAs have been involved in multiple cellular processes, such as proliferation, apoptosis and ...
Circulating miR-200c and miR-141 and outcomes in patients with breast cancer
(BioMed Central, 2015)
[Abstract] Background. The deregulation of microRNAs in both tumours and blood has led to the search for microRNAs to indicate the presence of cancer and predict prognosis. We hypothesize the deregulation of miR-200c/miR-141 ...
Circulating miR-200c as a diagnostic and prognostic biomarker for gastric cancer
(BioMed Central, 2012-09-06)
[Abstract] Background. MicroRNAs are aberrantly expressed and correlate with tumourigenesis and the progression of solid tumours. The miR-200 family determines the epithelial phenotype of cancer cells and regulates ...
