The objective of this analysis was to evaluate the efficacy and treatment outcome of CHOP and CHOP combined with nitrosourea chemotherapy in natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma of the nasal cavity. Sixty-three patients with NK/T-cell lymphoma of the nasal cavity were treated with CHOP or CHOP combined with oral nitrosourea chemotherapy between January 1997(More)
Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) is the most crucial ErbB receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) family member in HER2-positive (refered to HER2-overexpressing) breast cancer which are dependent on or "addictive" to the Phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) pathway. HER2-related target drugs trastuzumab and lapatinib have been the foundation of(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the target and normal structures on dose distributing variations during intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and to assess the value of replanning for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients. METHODS AND MATERIALS Twenty-eight NPC patients treated with IMRT were recruited. The IMRT was delivered in 33 fractions, to 70 to 76Gy, to(More)
miRNAs are emerging as critical regulators in carcinogenesis and tumor progression. Recently, microRNA-122 (miR-122) has been proved to play an important role in hepatocellular carcinoma, but its functions in the context of breast cancer (BC) remain unknown. In this study, we report that miR-122 is commonly downregulated in BC specimens and BC cell lines(More)
Overexpression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) has been identified by a variety of methods in NK cells and NK malignancies. The aim of this study was to determine the clinical significance of P-gp in previously untreated extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type. Tumor specimens from 30 patients initially treated with CHOP or CHOP-based chemotherapy were examined(More)
To assess prognostic and predictive effects of clinical and biochemical factors in our published randomized study of a weekly low dose (metronomic arm) versus a conventional dosage of zoledronic acid (conventional arm) in breast cancer patients with bone metastases. Treatment outcome of 60 patients with bone metastases were used to assess impacts of(More)
Cisplatin resistance is still one of the main reasons for failure of clinical therapy for cervical cancer. But the underlying molecular mechanisms involved in cisplatin resistance of cervical cancer have still remained unclear. Recent studies reported that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are novel nonprotein-coding transcripts, which might play a key role in(More)
UNLABELLED To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of gemcitabine plus cisplatin (GC) chemotherapy in patients with recurrent and metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), 75 patients of Chinese ethnicity with recurrent and metastatic NPC received a combination of gemcitabine 1000 mg/m2 on days 1 and 8, and cisplatin 25mg/m2 on days 1, 2 and 3 of a 21-day(More)
Tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) is a DNA virus belonging to the genus Begomovirus. TYLCV replicates using double-stranded DNA intermediates that can become the target of plant transcriptional gene silencing (TGS). Here, we show that the V2 protein of TYLCV can suppress TGS of a transcriptionally silenced green fluorescent protein (GFP) transgene in(More)
Indocyanine green (ICG) nanoparticles were developed via electrostatic interactions of ICG and dextran based block copolymers (PEG-dextran(-SS-NH2)) as near-infrared (NIR) theranostic nanoparticles. The nanoparticles could be activated from "OFF" to "ON" of NIR fluorescence in an intracellular environment and used for NIR imaging and photothermal therapy.
