26627827 three-dimensional structure of the EPR antibody (the 9E5(Fab) fragment) in the presence and absence of EPR
26215578 Together, these studies lead to identification of a novel pathway involving EREG and MMP-1 that contributes to the formation of early stage breast cancer
25203737 Patients homozygous for the minor allele A of EREG rs12641042 had a significantly higher 3-year survival rate than patients with allele C (HR 0.48; P=0.034), but significance was lost in multivariable analysis
24898387 Data indicate that the effects of epiregulin (EREG) and V-ATPase (TCIRG1) single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) on pulmonary tuberculosis susceptibility, to the extent that they exist, are dependent on gene-gene interactions in West African populations.
24812054 Epiregulin promotes the proliferation of liver progenitor cells and DNA synthesis by hepatocytes and is upregulated in the serum of patients with liver injury.
24800946 Plasma HGF and EREG levels are associated with resistance to treatment with anti-EGFR antibodies in KRAS wild-type patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.
24748662 Epiregulin is a transcriptional target of TSC2 (tuberin).
24470554 These results suggested that EREG is one of the molecules involved in glioma malignancy
24335920 In pre-treated K-ras wild-type status colorectal cancer, patients with high EREG gene expression appear to benefit more from cetuximab therapy compared with low expression.
24330607 EREG may contribute to glioma progression under the control of IRE1a.
