Abstract

The expression of the hypoxia-inducible protein erythropoietin in tumour cells correlates with levels of tumour hypoxia. Our aim was to look for an interrelation of directly measured oxygenation levels, the presence of tissue erythropoietin and its receptor. Data of tumour oxygenation status, plasma and tissue erythropoietin and its receptor in a group of spontaneously occurring tumours in 15 dogs were collected. Polarographic tumour oxygen partial pressure measurements were obtained and data were correlated. Significant positive correlations were found between tissue erythropoietin and the percentages of pO2 values 610 mmHg. Multivariate analysis revealed no parameters influencing plasma erythropoietin levels. Our results show that a co-expression of erythropoietin receptor and its ligand in spontaneous canine tumours exists, that the level of hypoxia in tumour cells correlates with the level of tissue erythropoietin and suggest the need to be quantitatively and functionally tested as novel prognostic biological parameters in neoplastic tissues.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
