BACKGROUND To evaluate the expression and differential diagnostic significance of CK19, TG, Ki67 and galectin-3 in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) (metastatic and non metastatic), follicular adenoma and nodular goiter in patients from the northeastern part of China. METHODS 441 PTC specimens and 151 other benign thyroid specimens (97 cases of nodular(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the clinicopathologic prognostic factors in adult granulosa cell tumors (GCTs) of the ovary. METHODS This retrospective study was carried out over a period of 10 years (1995-2005) in the Gynecology Department of Shengjing Hospital, China Medical University, Shenyang, China. Forty-six patients with GCT were enrolled in this study.(More)
The association between the expression of excision repair cross‑complementing gene 1 (ERCC1), thymidylate synthase (TYMS), ribonuleotide reductase M1 (RRM1), βIII‑tubulin (TUBB3), non‑muscle myosin II, myoglobin and MyoD1 in metastatic lung adenocarcinoma, and clinical outcomes with platinum‑based chemotherapy treatment is not well‑established. Recently,(More)
Water plays important roles in organic reactions such as polyurethane synthesis, and the aqueous solution environment affects polymer morphology and other properties. This paper focuses on the morphology and surface properties of waterborne polyurethane resulting from the organic reaction in water involving different forms (solid and liquid), temperatures(More)
BACKGROUND Immunocytochemistry is valuabale in differentiating malignant fluids from benign ones. However, the diagnostic value of a single tumor marker is limited. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical value of capture of cancer cells in pleural fluids of patients with lung cancer by cytochip. METHODS A new pattern cytochip was developed to(More)
BACKGROUND The conformation of a subset of phosphorylated serines or threonines preceding proline motifs is regulated by the prolyl isomerase Pin1. Pin1 plays a critical role in oncogenesis. The aim of this study is to explore the relationship between the expression of Pin1 and clinicopathological factors in squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the(More)
BACKGROUND Different isoforms of p120-catenin (p120(ctn)), the members of catenin family, are variably expressed in different tissues and cells. These isoforms may confer different properties with respect to cell adhesion and migration, but this concept needs experimental evidence. METHODS To more precisely define their biological roles, we stably(More)
