abstract

  • COX-2 expression is upregulated in well and moderately differentiated carcinomas of the lung, colon, and breast whereas COX-1 appears to be constitutively expressed at low levels. A possible COX-2 paracrine effect is suggested by moderate immunoreactivity in adjacent nonneoplastic epithelium.
