Frontiers in Endocrinology 2022 November 29 [Link] Yingqi Xiao, Wei Huang, Li Zhang, Hongwei Wang Abstract Background: Glycolysis-related genes as prognostic markers in malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is still unclear. We hope to explore the relationship between glycolytic pathway genes and MPM prognosis by constructing prognostic risk models through bioinformatics and machine learning. Methods: The…

Scientific Reports 2022 November 2 [Link] Takuya Hiratsuka, Takushi Yamamoto, Akihiko Yoshizawa, Shinya Toyokuni, Tatsuaki Tsuruyama Abstract Diagnostic markers of malignant mesothelioma (MM) have been extensively investigated. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) markers, such as calretinin, have been used for pathologic diagnosis. However, more diagnostic markers are required to improve the specificity and sensitivity of pathologic diagnosis. This…
