OBJECTIVES To investigate whether hypoxia has an effect on regulation of multidrug resistance (MDR) to chemotherapeutic drugs in laryngeal carcinoma cells and explore the role of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF- 1α). METHODS Laryngeal cancer cells were cultured under normoxic and hypoxic conditions. The sensitivity of the cells to multiple drugs and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha (HIF-1alpha) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC), while determine their relationship with clinicopathologic characteristics and prognosis. METHODS Tumor tissues were obtained from 60 patients who underwent resection of laryngeal carcinoma in(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Studies investigating the association between glutathione S-transferase M1 (GSTM1) gene polymorphism and laryngeal cancer risk have reported conflicting results. The aim of the present study was to conduct a meta-analysis assessing the possible associations of GSTM1 gene polymorphism with laryngeal cancer risk. METHODS The(More)
INTRODUCTION Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is one of the most aggressive malignant tumors. Eukaryotic translation initiation factors 3B (EIF3B) is considered to influence tumor proliferation, invasion, apoptosis and cell cycle, which act together to promote the progression of tumors. However, the role of EIF3B in ESCC is unknown. This study aims(More)
Studies investigating the association between glutathione S-transferase T1 (GSTT1) gene polymorphism and laryngeal cancer susceptibility have reported conflicting results. The aim of the present study was to conduct a meta-analysis assessing the possible association of GSTT1 gene polymorphism with laryngeal cancer risk. The relevant studies were identified(More)
Human granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (hGM-CSF) acts on many different kinds of cells, including monocytes, macrophages, granulocytes, eosinophils, and multipotential stem cells. To explore further explore pharmaceutical action, we expressed hGM-CSF by the Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus expression system in silkworm pupae. However,(More)
Paclitaxel has been proved to be active in treatment and larynx preservation of HNSCC, however, the fact that about 20-40% patients do not respond to paclitaxel makes it urgent to figure out the biomarkers for paclitaxel-based treatment in Hypopharynx cancer (HPC) patients to improve the therapy effect. In this work, Fadu cells, treated or untreated with(More)
Paclitaxel is a widely used chemotherapy drug for advanced laryngeal cancer patients. However, the fact that there are 20-40% of advanced laryngeal cancer patients do not response to paclitaxel makes it necessary to figure out potential biomarkers for paclitaxel sensitivity prediction. In this work, Hep2, a laryngeal cancer cell line, untreated or treated(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The lncRNA Homeobox (HOX) transcript antisense RNA (HOTAIR) is overexpressed in numerous cancers. HuR is also overexpressed during tumourigenesis and is abnormally present within the cytoplasm, where it binds to AU-rich elements in the 3'UTRs of target mRNA and post-transcriptionally regulates the expression of its target genes. However,(More)
In machine translation (MT) practice, there is an urgent need for constructing a set of Chinese-to-English aspect transferring rules to define the transferring conditions. The integrated feature set was used to generalize and justify the Chinese-to-English transferring rule of the ‘ZHE’ aspect (ZHE Rule). A ZHE classification model was built in this study.(More)
