Quantification of the association between the intake of fruit and vegetables and risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is controversial even though several studies have explored this association. We summarized the evidence from observational studies in categorical, linear and non-linear dose-response meta-analyses. Eligible studies published up(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aimed to evaluate the long-term efficacy of multimodality therapy for patients with type B3 thymoma. METHODS A total of 188 consecutive patients with type B3 were treated in our hospital from January 2001 to December 2010. One hundred seventy-seven patients who had been treated with curative intent were retrospectively analyzed.(More)
BACKGROUND Young non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients under the age of 40 can further be categorized into different age subgroups. Whether they have homogeneous clinical features and survival outcomes remains unexplored. METHODS Information of 4623 NSCLC patients up to 40 years old from 1988 to 2012 was retrieved from the Surveillance,(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate whether Chinese non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with risk of radiation pneumonitis (RP) (grade ≥ 3) caused by radiotherapy display reliable single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) marker(s) located on the transforming growth factor-beta-1 (TGFβ1) gene. METHODS DNA was isolated from blood samples obtained from NSCLC(More)
BACKGROUND With the extensively application of HRCT (high resolution CT) and the popularization of early lung cancer screening, the proportion of small nodullar lung cancer to be operated increases rapidly. Identifying the focus lesions quickly and accurately in operation has shown to be a challenge. We carried out this research trying to make use of and(More)
BACKGROUND Recently chemoradiotherapy becomes a standard treatment of un-resectable advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) instead of radiotherapy alone. This study is to evaluate the clinical effect and toxicities of concurrent chemoradiotherapy in patients with stage III NSCLC after 2 cycles of induction chemotherapy with cisplatin-based regimens.
