26416449 our findings suggest that CCL18 released from tumor-associated macrophages promotes angiogenesis and tumor progression in breast cancer.
26294068 CCL18 is significantly up-regulated in breast cancer vs benign tumors or normal breast. It increased with the size of tumors, the number of lymph node metastasis, and advancing tumor stage.
26244871 Findings suggest that down-regulation of miR98 and miR27b promotes CCL18-mediated invasion and migration of breast cancer cells.
26113374 A common CCL18 polymorphism together with intraventricular hemorrhage had an additive influence on cerebral palsy susceptibility.
25794928 The CCL18 levels in serum and synovial fluid are correlated with the severity of osteoarthritis.
25502147 Combined functions of CCL18 in mesenchymal and cancer cells might accelerate the progression of PDAC by promoting the epithelial-mesenchymal transition, invasion and migration of pancreatic cancer cells.
25412496 CCL17 and CCL18 dermal expression is associated with leprosy polarity.
25275026 CCL18 expression was positively correlated with malignancy in EC.
25197632 upregulation of CCL18 may be involved in the malignant progression of prostate cancer.
25142483 Increased CCL18 levels characterize chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection and pulmonary obstruction in patients with cystic fibrosis.
