Octamer transcription factor 1 (OCT1) was found to influence the genesis and progression of numerous cancers except for colorectal cancer (CRC). This study tried to explore the role of OCT1 in CRC and clarify the association between its expression and patients’ clinical outcome. Transcriptional and post-transcriptional expression of OCT1 was detected in CRC(More)
We determined the biological and prognostic significance of five recurrent genetic aberrations in Chinese patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). A total of 304 Chinese MDS patients were screened for known mutations in five genes (ASXL1, U2AF1, SF3B1, SRSF2, and EZH2) using next-generation sequencing. Of these, 97 patients (31.9 %) harbored at least(More)
BACKGROUND Tissue inhibitor matrix metalloproteinase 1 (TIMP1) plays a vital role in carcinogenesis, yet its precise functional roles and regulation remain unclear. In this study, we aim to investigate its biological function and clinical significance in human colon cancer. METHODS We analyzed the expression of TIMP1 in both public database (Oncomine and(More)
The progressive mechanism underlying myelodysplastic syndrome remains unknown. Here we identify ROBO1 and ROBO2 as novel progression-related somatic mutations using whole-exome and targeted sequencing in 6 of 16 (37.5%) paired MDS patients with disease progression. Further deep sequencing detects 20 (10.4%) patients with ROBO mutations in a cohort of 193(More)
Decitabine treatment improves immunological recognition that increases expression of cancer-testis antigens (CTAs) against solid tumors. The mechanisms of decitabine enhancement of immunogenicity when used for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) remain unclear. In the present study, we found relatively low baseline expression of MAGE-A1, MAGE-A3,(More)
Decitabine is an effective therapy for patients with lower risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). However, the mechanisms of decitabine's therapeutic effect are not well established. Forty-four lower risk MDS patients received decitabine therapy. 59.1% patients achieved treatment response, and 53.8% patients who were RBC/platelet-dependent cast off the(More)
To identify the molecular signatures that predict responses to decitabine (DAC), we examined baseline gene mutations (28 target genes) in 109 myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients at diagnosis. We determined that TP53 mutations predicted complete response (CR), as 10 of 15 patients (66·7%) who possessed TP53 mutations achieved a CR. Univariate and(More)
OBJECTIVES In order to gain an insight into labile plasma iron (LPI) in iron metabolism microenvironment in MDS. METHODS We performed ELISA, quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction, flow cytometry, MRI T2* assays to test LPI, iron biochemical parameters, and liver iron concentration (LIC) among 22 MDS patients. RESULTS LPI has a statistical(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of bisphosphonate combined with chemotherapy on bone mineral density (BMD) of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and analyse its value of BMD detection in clinic of these patients. 53 MM cases were enrolled in this study, including 33 newly diagnosed, 10 refractory/relapsed and 10 stable cases. They(More)
