4 Appendix The commonest tumours of the appendix are the carcinoid tumours and these rarely show serosal involvement, apart from the type known as goblet cell carcinoid or adenocarcinoid. The fact that this tumour does show more propensity to serosal involvement and transcoelomic disease may be an indication of its closer pathogenetic relationship to mucinous glandular tumours, which show a dis- tinct preference for local peritoneal involvement and transperitoneal spread. This having been said, the subject of mucinous appendiceal tumours continues to cause consternation and difficulty for diagnostic pathologists and for those surgeons and oncologists charged with the further management of this disease.
Kawamura et al. reported that a highly metastatic cell line on the peritoneum overexpresses integrin α1, α2, and β1 . Furthermore, neutralizing antibody for integrin α1, α2, and β1 subunits can inhibit the adhesion of cancer cells to the peritoneum. These results suggest integrins as target molecules to consider in research for the prevention of peritoneal dissemination. Furthermore, complementary DNA microarray and histochemical analyses revealed differences in the concerted expressions of several genes coding for matrix proteinases, cell adhesion, motility, angiogenesis, and proliferation between the highly metastatic and parental cell lines .
