    Cytokines produced in the tumour microenvironment have an important role in cancer pathogenesis. Altered cytokine expression may result in increased susceptibility to and/or poor prognosis in certain cancers. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the influence of interleukin (IL)-8...

    Purpose: One of the most important characteristics of ovarian cancer is invasion and metastasis. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are known to play an important role in cancer cell invasion by mediating the degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM). The activities of MMPs are regulated by tissue...
