YKL-40 predicts poor prognosis for bladder cancer

As reported in Urologic Oncology, the gene expression and serum level of YKL-40 are higher in patients with bladder cancer than healthy controls. Serum YKL-40 levels predict poor prognosis in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (HR=1.75).

CHD7 associated with survival in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients receiving gemcitabine

As reported in Cancer Research, low CHD7 expression is associated with increased RFS and OS in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients receiving gemcitabine. There was no association between CHD7 expression and RFS or OS in patients who were not treated with gemcitabine.

Loss of PTEN expression portends poor prognosis in IPMNs of the pancreas

As reported in Clinical Cancer Research, loss of PTEN in intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) of the pancreas (n=36) is associated with invasiveness and poor survival.
