- Dominant-negative hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha reduces tumorigenicity of pancreatic cancer cells through the suppression of glucose metabolismJian Chen
Division of Cancer Pathobiology, Institute for Genetic Medicine, Hokkaido University, and Department of Surgical Oncology, Hokkaido University Graduate School of Medicine, Sapporo, Japan
Am J Pathol 162:1283-91. 2003..We found no significant difference in the microvessel counts among the tumor tissues. From these results, we suggest that the disruption of the HIF-1 pathway might be effective in the treatment of pancreatic cancers...
