ABSTRACT
The article presents a rare case of colonic metastasis which presents as an intestinal obstruction as a complication from a pelvic radiotherapy for a stage II B squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix in a 36-year-old woman. The patient was treated with concurrent chemo-radiation, and five years after completion of treatment presented symptoms of the complication. A metastatic growth in the transverse colon was revealed in laparotomy.

    Objective cutaneous metastasis from carcinoma of the uterine cervix is an uncommon occurrence. The outcome of patients with skin metastasis is usually poor as they are often associated with locoregional recurrence. This metastasis impairs the quality of life and shortens survival. Consequently,...

    Abstract??ADAM-17 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase 17) is a membrane-anchored protein, which can cleave the ectodomain in a variety of transmembrane proteins. In the in vitro experiments with tumor cells, ADAM-17 is reported to cleave CD44, an adhesion molecule that interacts with hyaluronic...
