Brief Summary:
Bladder carcinoma is the 9th most prevalent cancer worldwide and the 13th most common cause of cancer-related deaths. Approximately three quarters of all cases are diagnosed in men. Lack of understanding of mechanisms that govern bladder carcinoma metastasis and recurrence is a major reason for its high mortality rates. CXCL5 is a small (8-14 kDa) protein that is a member of the CXC chemokine family. It is an inflammatory and angiogenic chemokine that binds to its cell-surface receptor CXCR2 to execute its roles in angiogenesis, immune response, tumor progression and invasion by activating the PI3K/AKT pathway-induced up regulation of matrix metalloproteinase. Numerous reports have indicated that CXCL5 plays vital roles in cancer progression in various neoplasms; abnormal expression of CXCL5 has been identified in many tumors. Increased expression of CXCL5 is associated with advanced tumor stages, local invasion, metastatic potential and cancer-related inflammation, which is involved in many aspects of malignancy in cancer biology. Recent studies have revealed that CXCL5 could serve as a potential prognostic biomarker for patients with bladder carcinoma.
