  • Publication number: 20110098185
    Abstract: This invention relates to a composition, kit, or DNA chip for use in diagnosis of esophageal cancer, which comprises a plurality of polynucleotides selected from the group consisting of polynucleotides whose expression levels are varied in esophageal cancer tissues obtained from esophageal cancer patients when compared with cancer-free esophageal tissues obtained from esophageal cancer patients, mutants thereof, and fragments thereof, and to a method for detecting esophageal cancer using the composition, kit, or DNA chip.

  • Patent number: 7910316
    Abstract: This invention relates to a method for detecting in vitro a urothelial cancer, comprising measuring CXCL1 protein, or expression of a gene encoding the protein, in a biological sample from a subject, and to a kit for diagnosing a urothelial cancer comprising an antibody or nucleic acid probe, which is capable of binding specifically to the CXCL1 protein or a gene encoding the protein, respectively.

  • Publication number: 20100152055
    Abstract: This invention relates to a composition, kit, DNA chip, and use thereof for detecting, diagnosing, and predicting metastasis of kidney cancer and/or for predicting the prognosis for kidney cancer, comprising one or a plurality of polynucleotides selected from the group consisting of polynucleotides, mutants thereof or fragments thereof, the expression levels of which vary in kidney cancer cells from a patient with a poor prognosis when compared with that in kidney cancer cells from a patient with a good prognosis; or antibodies or fragments thereof that bind specifically to polypeptides, mutants thereof or fragments thereof, the expression levels of which vary in the similar manner.
