Preferential expression of cancer/testis genes in cancer stem-like cells: proposal of a novel sub-category, cancer/testis/stem gene.
Sapporo, Japan. In Tissue Antigens, 2013
Eighteen genes (MAGEA2, MAGEA3, MAGEA4, MAGEA6, MAGEA12, MAGEB2, GAGE1, GAGE8, SPANXA1, SPANXB1, SPANXC, XAGE2, SPA17, BORIS, PLU-1, SGY-1, TEX15 and CT45A1) showed higher expression levels in SP cells than in MP cells, whereas 10 genes (BAGE1, BAGE2, BAGE4, BAGE5, XAGE1, LIP1, D40, HCA661, TDRD1 and TPTE) showed similar expression levels in SP cells and MP cells.
Expression of cancer-testis antigens in hepatocellular carcinoma.
Beijing, China. In World J Gastroenterol, 2004
AIM: To investigate the expression of cancer-testis (CT) antigens MAGE-1, SSX-1,CTp11 and HCA587 genes in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and the possibility of applying these antigens as targets for specific immunotherapy for HCC.
New directions for chemotherapy in non-small-cell lung cancer.
San Diego, United States. In Chest, 1993
This article reviews available data for several of these agents: navelbine, which is an analogue of vinblastine, the camptothecins CTP-11 and topotecan, and taxol, the first of a novel class of antimicrotubule drugs.
