Genome-wide association studies have identified two SNPs (rs402710 and rs401681) of CLPTM1L at chromosome 5p15.33 as a new lung cancer (LC) susceptibility locus in populations of European descent. Since then, the relationship between these SNPs and LC has been reported in various ethnic groups; however, these studies have yielded inconsistent results. To(More)
The molecular regulation of metastasis of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains not completely defined. Here we showed significant higher MMP26 in the resected NSCLC than adjacent healthy tissue from the patients. Moreover, a strong correlation between MMP26 and the phosphorylated fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) was detected. To examine the(More)
Therapeutic benefits offered by common chemotherapy drugs, such as oxaliplatin, are limited due to the development of resistance, which contributes to treatment failure and metastasis. The epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a key event contributing to the development of resistance to chemotherapeutics. Although the relationship between oxaliplatin(More)
OBJECTIVE Malignant peripheral neurogenic tumor is always found in large peripheral nerve of the extremities, however, benign peripheral neurogenic tumors of chest is an uncommon disorder, furthermore, malignant transition is even rare. So far, few cases have been reported. We studied 45 neurogenic thoracic tumors patients with malignant transition. (More)
Little is known regarding the prognostic impact of the signet ring cell (SRC) histotype on negative lymph nodes (LNs) in gastric cancer (GC). In this study, we aimed to investigate the differences between SRC and non-SRC GC patients without LN metastasis. The medical records of patients with GC who underwent gastrectomy at Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer(More)
