By reviewing 3725 lymphomas diagnosed in our institution from 1999 to 2010, we found eight cases (0.21%) of primary lymphoma in soft tissue with comprehensive histologic and immunohistochemical studies. Of the eight cases of primary lymphoma in soft tissue, two patients were male and six were female. The mean age was 54.8 years with range from 23 to 76(More)
Aim. To analyze the clinicopathological features of meningioangiomatosis (MA) associated with meningioma. Methods. We present one case of MA associated with meningioma. Histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry were used. Results. The age of the patient was 33-year-old man. Histopathologically, MA was characterized by vascular proliferation(More)
The poor prognosis of malignant gliomas is largely attributed to their highly invasive nature. The molecular mechanism underlying the invasiveness of glioma cells, however, remains to be elucidated. The present study found that astrocyte elevated gene-1 (AEG-1) was upregulated in human glioma cell lines and glioma tissues compared with normal astrocytes and(More)
The present study was aimed at investigating the expression of metastasis-associated in colon cancer 1 (MACC1) in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), its relationship with β-catenin, Met expression and the clinicopathological features of NPC, and its roles in carcinogenesis of NPC. Our results showed that MACC1 expression was higher in NPC cells and tissues(More)
Epidemiological and clinical studies suggest that an increased intake of dietary selenium significantly reduces overall cancer risk, but the anticancer mechanism of selenium is not clear. In this study, we fed intestinal cancer mouse model. Muc2/p21 double mutant mice with a selenium-enriched (sodium selenite) diet for 12 or 24 weeks, and found that sodium(More)
To investigate miR-378a-3p and miR-378a-5p expression and their relationships with the clinicopathological features of colorectal cancer (CRC). Our results showed that miR-378a-3p and miR-378a-5p expression were dramatically lower in CRC cell lines and tissues than that in adjacent normal colorectal mucosal tissues, respectively. MiR-378a-3p and miR-378a-5p(More)
Angiogenesis is one of the earliest and essential phenotypes acquired by tumors during carcinogenesis and thus might be a potential target for chemoprevention. Key to developing antiangiogenic chemoprevention is to identify new molecular targets and effective angiogenesis inhibitors. HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, or statins, were originally designed to(More)
Expression of astrocyte-elevated gene-1, a novel oncoprotein, is elevated in multiple cancers and plays a vital role in tumor cell growth, invasion, angiogenesis, and progression to metastasis. However, the functional significance of astrocyte-elevated gene-1 in non-small cell lung cancer still remains unclear. Our present study showed that the markedly(More)
PURPOSE To investigate p53 and hepatoma-derived growth factor (HDGF) expression and their association with clinicopathological features of Ewing family tumour (EFT). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN A total of 108 cases of EFT were retrospectively analysed. p53 and HDGF expression were detected using immunohistochemistry, and the relationships between p53 expression(More)
