<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To explore the NEK-6 expression in gastric cancer tissue and its relationship with clinicopathological features.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Fluorescent quantification PCR and Western blotting were used to examine the NEK-6 expression in 36 samples of fresh gastric cancer tissues and para-cancer gastric mucosal tissues, human gastric cancer cell lines(BGC-823, MKN-28, SGC-7901, MGC-803, HGC-27, AGS), and human normal gastric epithelial cell line (GES-1). Gastric cancer cell lines with the highest expression level were selected to perform the invasion and migration tests, and the effect of down-regulated NEK-6 expression by siRNA transfection on above invasion and migration tests were observed. Meanwhile NEK-6 expression in 94 paraffin samples of gastric cancer tissues was examined by immunohistochemistry and its positivity was compared among different clinicopathologic features.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Fluorescent quantification PCR revealed gastric cancer tissues had significantly higher NEK-6 expression than para-cancer tissues(0.002 80±0.001 36 vs. 0.001 91±0.001 48, P<0.05), NEK-6 expression was up-regulated in 31 gastric cancer tissues (86.1%), and human gastric cancer cell lines had significantly higher NEK-6 expression than GES-1 cells, among whom BGC-823 and AGS cell lines were the highest. Invasion and migration tests showed that as compared to negative siRNA control group, ability of invasion and migration in BGC-823 and AGS cells after siRNA transfection was obviously decreased. In 94 paraffin samples, positive expression rate of NEK-6 was 60.6%(57/94), and NEK-6 expression was significantly associated with gastric cancer distant metastasis, lymph nodes metastasis and TNM staging(all P<0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>NEK-6 expression is up-regulated in gastric cancer tissues, which is significantly associated with distant metastasis, lymph nodes metastasis and TNM staging. Down-regulation of NEK-6 expression can inhibit the ability of invasion and migration in gastric cancer cells.</p>

Nowadays more and more biologists and immunologists focus on Galectin-1 due to the in -depth study of Galectins.As one of the important member of Galectins,Galectin-1 distributes widely,exists in a variety of tissues and cells,involves in cell adhesion,proliferation,apoptosis and inflammatory reaction,and results in a variety of physiological and pathological process.Recent studies have found that Galectin-1 expression in a variety of malignant tumor with a close relationship with tumor occurrence,invasion,development,anti-tumor immunity,and metastasis.It may be a potentially new target for cancer and inflammation therapies.This present paper reviews the current research about Galectin-1 and tumor progression.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To study the expression of phospholipase C epsilon-1(PLCE1) and its clinical significance in gastric cancer.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Surgical specimens were collected from 125 patients who underwent radical gastrectomy between 2005 and 2007 in the Zhejiang Provincial Peoples' Hospital. Expression level of PLCE1 protein was measured by immunohistochemistry in these 125 surgical specimens, which included primary gastric cancer and matched adjacent normal gastric mucosa tissues, and then 41 pairs of above specimens were selected randomly to examine the expression level of PLCE1 mRNA by quantitative reverse transcription PCR(qRT-PCR).</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Immunohistochemistry and qRT-PCR showed that both protein and mRNA level of PLCE1 were up-regulated in gastric cancer compared with paired normal gastric mucosa. Univariate analysis demonstrated that the expression of PLCE1 was significantly associated with differentiation degree, invasion depth, lymph node metastasis, distant metastasis, and TNM stage (all P<0.01). The 5-year survival rate of positive PLCE1 group was significantly lower as compared to negative group (31.2% vs. 54.0%, P<0.01). However, the expression of PLCE1 was not an independent prognostic factor for gastric cancer (P>0.05).</p><p><b>CONCLUSIONS</b>PLCE1 is up-regulated in gastric cancer, which is associated with the malignant biological behaviors of gastric cancer. High expression of PLCE1 suggests poor prognosis.</p>

Objective To explore available immune strategy to improve immunological effects of the B cell epitopes of human heparanase protein.Methods Based on predicted potential B cell epitopes of human heparanase protein,three candidates of multiple antigenic peptides(MAP)with 8-branches were synthesized and identified by conjugation to antibody against full human heparanase protein.C57BL/6 mice were immunized with the 8-branch MAPs mixed with or without the universal human T-helper IL-1β peptide.The antibody titers of immune serum was assayed by ELISA.Results Most potential epitopes of human heparanase protein were predicted as No.1-15(MAP1),279-293(MAP2)and 175-189(MAP3)in large subunit of human heparanase protein.All three synthesized MAPs mixed with the T-helper epitope induced higher titers of antibodies than them without the T-helper epitope.Conclusion The three B cell epitopes of human heparanase protein could he its B cell preponderant epitopes.The 8-branch MAPs mixed TH cell epitope may be an available and optimizing immune strategy.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To study the effect of angiogenesis inhibitor Rg3 on the growth and metastasis of gastric cancer in SCID mice.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Metastatic model simulating human gastric cancer was established by orthotopic implantation of histologically intact human tumor tissue into the gastric wall of SCID mice. Rg3 was administered by gastric perfusion at doses of 0, 2.5, 5.0, 10.0 mg/kg every day for 6 weeks 1 week after tumor implantation. One week after last administration, the mice were killed and their tumor weight was measured and the presence of metastasis recorded. Intratumoral microvessel density was examined by immunohistochemical staining with anti-CD31 monoclonal antibody.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>Compared to the untreated controls, the growth of the orthotopically implanted tumor was significantly reduced in weight in mice treated with Rg3 with an inhibition rate of 52.3%, 63.3% and 71.6% at doses of 2.5, 5.0, 10.0 mg/kg, respectively. Tumor metastasis to the liver and peritoneum was also significantly inhibited in a dose-dependent manner. Decreased intratumoral microvessel density was noted in the treated mice.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Angiogenesis inhibitor Rg3 has strong inhibitory effect on tumor growth and metastasis of human gastric cancer in SCID mice.</p>

Objective To evaluate the clinical significance of re operation for postoperative recurrent gastric carcinoma. Methods From 1986 to 2001, fifty one patients with postoperative local recurrence of gastric carcinoma were admitted into our hospital. The clinical data were analyzed retrospectively. Results Of 51 cases, there were 31 cases with recurrence within the stump stomach and 20 with local and metastatic recurrence. Twenty seven cases were treated by radical resection, 3 cases by palliative residual stomach resection, 15 cases by gastrojejunostomy or gastroenterostomy, 6 cases by simple exploration. Pathological examination of 30 cases revealed perianastomosis recurrence in 10 cases, stump stomach carcinoma in 20 cases. The 1,3,5 year survival rate of 27 cases after radical resection was 88%, 58%, 19% respectively. The survival time of palliative and comprehensive treatment group was 6 to 24 months and mean survival time was 16 months, while all patients undergoing simple exploration and abdominal cavity chemotherapy died after 2 to 7 months. Conclusion Most postoperative recurrent gastric carcinoma are within the residual stomach and hence could be treated by reoperative resection.
