Novel cancer biomarkers are required to achieve early diagnosis and optimized therapy for individual patients. Cancer is a disease of the genome, and tumor tissues are a rich source of cancer biomarkers as they contain the functional translation of the genome, namely the proteome. Investigation of the tumor tissue proteome allows the identification of proteomic signatures corresponding to clinico-pathological parameters, and individual proteins in such signatures will be good biomarker candidates. Tumor tissues are also a rich source for plasma biomarkers, because proteins released from tumor tissues may be more cancer specific than those from non-tumor cells. Two-dimensional difference gel electrophoresis (2D-DIGE) with novel ultra high sensitive fluorescent dyes (CyDye DIGE Fluor satulation dye) enables the efficient protein expression profiling of laser-microdissected tissue samples. The combined use of laser microdissection allows accurate proteomic profiling of specific cells in tumor tissues. To develop clinical applications using the identified biomarkers, collaboration between research scientists, clinicians and diagnostic companies is essential, particularly in the early phases of the biomarker development projects. The proteomics modalities currently available have the potential to lead to the development of clinical applications, and channeling the wealth of produced information towards concrete and specific clinical purposes is urgent.

α-Fetoprotein (AFP) is considered to be a diagnostic and prognostic biomarker in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the role of AFP in the development of HCC is presently obscure. We hypothesized that a certain set of genes is expressed in a manner coordinate with AFP, and that these genes essentially contribute to the malignant characteristics of AFP-producing HCC. To address this hypothesis, we carried out global mRNA expression analysis of 21 liver cancer cell lines that produce varying...

Purpose: Epidermal growth factor receptor ( EGFR ) mutations, especially in-frame deletions in exon 19 (DEL) and a point mutation in exon 21 (L858R), predict gefitinib sensitivity in patients with non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In this study, we verified the accuracy of EGFR mutation analysis in small samples by high-resolution melting analysis (HRMA), which is a rapid method using PCR amplification with a dye to analyze the melting curves in NSCLC. Experimental Design: We designed a prospe...

Currently one of the most challenging tasks in biological and medical research is to explore and understand the function of all proteins encoded by the genome of an organism. A systematic approach based on the genome sequences is feasible because the full genome of many organisms presently is available and many more are underway. For the production of expression atlases different strategies are used. Early attempts to acquire information about protein expression levels have focused on the analys...

We investigated the aberrant expression of plasma proteins in patients with pancreatic cancer. High-abundance plasma proteins (albumin, transferrin, haptoglobin, alpha-1-antitrypsin, IgG and IgA) were depleted by use of an immuno-affinity column, and low-abundance ones were separated into five fractions by anion-exchange chromatography. The fractionated plasma proteins were subjected to 2D-DIGE with highly sensitive fluorescent dyes. The quantitative protein expression profiles obtained by 2D-DI...

Palliative imatinib treatment has dramatically improved survival in patients with malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumours, particularly in patients with tumours harbouring activating KIT mutations. To evaluate the effectiveness of adjuvant imatinib after radical surgery, a consecutive series of patients with high-risk tumours (n=23) was compared with historic controls (n=48) who were treated with surgery alone. The mean follow-up period was over 3 years in both groups. Only 1 out of 23 patien...

The poor prognosis of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is attributed to intrahepatic recurrence. To understand the molecular background of early intrahepatic recurrence, we conducted a global protein expression study. We compared the protein expression profiles of the primary HCC tissues of 12 patients who showed intrahepatic recurrence within 6 months post surgery with those of 15 patients who had no recurrence 2 years post surgery. Two-dimensional difference gel electrophoresis ide...

Purpose: CpG island methylator phenotype (CIMP) involves hypermethylation targeted toward the promoters of multiple genes. To gain insight into the role of epigenetic aberration of tumor-related genes in hepatocarcinogenesis, we determined a hypermethylation profile in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Experimental Design: We examined the promoter methylation status of nine genes in 50 HCCs, 50 paired nontumor tissues, and 6 normal liver tissues by methylation-specific PCR. CIMP+ was defined as ha...

Abstract Techniques for analyzing genome-wide expression profiles, such as the microarray technique and next-generation sequencers, have been developed. While these techniques can provide a lot of information about gene expression, selection of genes of interest is complicated because of excessive gene expression data. Thus, many researchers use statistical methods or fold change as screening tools for finding gene sets whose expression is altered between groups, which may result in the loss of ...

St. Jude Medical (SJM) bileaflet mechanical valves were approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1977. The SJM valve design consists of two semicircular leaflets which pivot on hinges. Compared to other mechanical heart valve prostheses such as ball and cage and tilting disk prosthetic valves, it provides good central flow, the leaflets open completely, and the pressure drop across the valve is trivial. However, non-physiological hemodynamics around these valves may lead to red blood cell...
