Epidemiology of carcinoid neoplasms in Vaud, Switzerland, 1974-97.


:In Vaud, Switzerland, the incidence of carcinoids based on 218 malignant and 215 benign cases rose from 19.6/10(6)in 1974-85 to 28. 2/10(6)in 1986-97, more so among males and malignant neoplasms. Lung was the commonest site for malignant and large intestine for benign carcinoids. Sixty-eight (16%) carcinoids had another neoplasm.

  • Expression of ADAMTS-8, a secreted protease with antiangiogenic properties, is downregulated in brain tumours.

    abstract::Angiogenesis and extracellular matrix degradation are key events in tumour progression, and factors regulating stromal-epithelial interactions and matrix composition are potential targets for the development of novel anti-invasive/antiangiogenic therapies. Here, we examine the expression of ADAMTS-8, a secreted protea...
