Significance of Macrophage Chemoattractant Protein-1 in Macrophage Recruitment, Angiogenesis, and Survival in Human Breast Cancer

Significance of Macrophage Chemoattractant Protein-1 in Macrophage Recruitment, Angiogenesis, and... Tumor cells stimulate the formation of stroma that secretes various mediators pivotal for tumor growth, including growth factors, cytokines, and proteases. However, little is known about the local regulation of these soluble mediators in the human tumor microenvironment. In this study, the local expression of cytokines, chemokines, and angiogenic factors was investigated in primary breast cancer tissue. The concentrations of interleukin (IL)-1, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IL-12, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, IFN-γ, IL-8, macrophage chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1, epithelial-neutrophil activating peptide-78, vascular endothelial growth factor, and thymidine phosphorylase (TP) were measured in 151 primary breast cancer extracts by ELISA. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) were also examined by immunohistochemistry with anti-CD68 antibodies. The correlation between soluble mediators and the relationship between TAM count and soluble mediators were evaluated. MCP-1 concentration was correlated significantly with the level of vascular endothelial growth factor, TP, TNF-α, and IL-8, which are potent angiogenic factors. IL-4 concentration was correlated significantly with IL-8 and IL-10. On the other hand, an inverse association was observed between TP and IL-12. The level of MCP-1 was associated significantly with TAM accumulation. In the immunohistochemical analysis, MCP-1 expression was observed in both infiltrating macrophages and tumor cells. Prognostic analysis revealed that high expression of MCP-1, as well as of VEGF, was a significant indicator of early relapse. These findings indicate that interaction between the immune network system and angiogenesis is important for progression of human breast cancer, and that MCP-1 may play an important role in the regulation of angiogenesis and the immune system. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Clinical Cancer Research American Association of Cancer Research
