Aberrant expression of microRNA-146a (miR-146a) has been reported to be involved in the development and progression of various types of cancers. However, its role in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has not been elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate the contribution of miR-146a to various aspects of the malignant phenotype of human NSCLCs.(More)
BACKGROUND Primary coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) deficiencies are heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorders. CoQ2 mutations have been identified only rarely in patients. All affected individuals presented with nephrotic syndrome in the first year of life. METHODS An infant is studied with myoclonic seizures and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in the first months of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In patients with epidural lipomatosis, axial lumbar spine CT and MR images occasionally reveal a geometric, polygonal or stellar, shape of the dural sac. The purpose of this study was to define the anatomic structures responsible for this radiologic appearance. We hypothesized that meningovertebral ligaments could anchor the dura(More)
BACKGROUND Cellular retinol-binding protein I (CRBP-I), a member of the intracellular lipid-binding protein (iLBP) superfamily, is a specific marker of quiescent stellate cells in the healthy human liver. In the diseased fibrotic/cirrhotic liver, portal and septal myofibroblasts acquire CRBP-I expression, while activated hepatic stellate cells maintain(More)
In order to achieve a better functional and clinical knowledge of a masticatory muscle called the sphenomandibularis that is suspected to be responsible for headaches by compressing the maxillary nerve, bilateral dissections of the infratemporal fossa were performed on ten human cadavers and completed by histological and radiological studies of the same(More)
INTRODUCTION Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibition is the preferred first-line treatment of advanced adenocarcinoma of the lung that harbors EGFR activating tyrosine kinase domain mutations. Most data available pertain to Asian populations in which such mutations are more prevalent. We report on the long-term results of(More)
