A novel target specific small interfering RNA (siRNA) delivery system was successfully developed using hydrophobized hyaluronic acid-spermine conjugates (HHSCs), which were previously synthesized and their properties were also characterized in our published papers. Fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) labeled specific Silencer Select siRNAs were used as a(More)
Doxorubicin (ADR) is successfully used to treat breast cancer, however, it is often associated with the acquired resistance of breast cancer cells which eliminates the therapeutic efficiency of ADR, leading to relapse and a poorer prognosis. It has been reported that microRNA-200c (miRNA-200c), a non-coding RNA, is important in the epithelial to mesenchymal(More)
CONTEXT Malignant tumors cause more death because of the resistance of the hypoxic cancer cell toward radiotherapy. Targeting for hypoxic cancer area and gene silencing to overcome the hypoxia are two kinds of important therapeutic strategies for treating tumors. OBJECTIVE In order to explore the combined effects of gene therapy and hypericin (Hy) on(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate CA19-9 and CK8/18 expression patterns in pancreatic cancer cell lines induced by 5-fluorouracil (5-Fu), and in circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in peripheral blood of patients previously untreated with advanced pancreatic cancer. Furthermore, the goal was to test the relationship of dynamic of CTCs with the(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, and only 15% of lung cancer patients live more than 5 years. microRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenously expressed non-coding RNAs, and dysregulation of miRNAs is a common feature in human cancers including lung cancer. In this study, we describe the epigenetic regulation of(More)
Assess the effects of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) in enhancing the radiosensitivity of esophageal cancer cell line in vitro. Three esophageal cancer cell line cells were exposed to X-ray with or without TNF-α treatment. MTT assay was used to evaluate the cell growth curve, and flow cytometry was performed to assess the cell apoptosis. The(More)
BACKGROUND To assess the association between polymorphism rs678653 in human Cyclin D1 gene (CCND1) and the risk of cancer. MATERIAL/METHODS Multiple biomedical databases were systematically searched. Pooled odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated in the appropriate model. RESULTS In total, 17 case-control studies from 14(More)
