MiR-222 in glioma can regulate cell cycle progression and apoptosis. However, the relationship between miR-222 and Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in glioma remains unknown. Here, we found that the Dickkopf-2 gene (DKK2) was a direct target of miR-222 by target prediction analysis and dual luciferase reporter assay. RNA interference silencing of DKK2 proved(More)
Hypothermia therapy shows its unique potential for reducing mortality in animal study and improving neurologic outcome in patients with traumatic brain injury. However, therapeutic hypothermia for pediatric traumatic brain injury remains a controversial issue. To determine the effectiveness and safety of hypothermia treatment for pediatric traumatic brain(More)

Cancer constitutes a momentous health burden in our society. Critical information on cancer may be hidden in its signaling pathways. However, even though a large amount of money has been spent on cancer research, some critical information on cancer-related signaling pathways still remains elusive. Hence, new works towards a complete understanding of(More)
The China Pediatric Neurosurgery Forum (CPNF) 2013 was held from June 21 to June 23 in Shanghai, a major financial center and a global influential city of China. The aim of the meeting is to establish the Chinese Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (CSPN). The meeting was organized by the Chinese Medical Association comprising the Chairman of the(More)
Astrocytoma cells characteristically possess high invasion potentials. Recent studies have revealed that knockdown of signal transducers and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3) expression by RNAi induces apoptosis in astrocytoma cell. Nevertheless, the distinct roles of STAT3 in astrocytoma's invasion and recurrence have not been elucidated. In this(More)
Colloid cysts often arise in the third ventricle. It is quite rare for colloid cysts to arise from lateral ventricles. We describe a case of a patient with colloid cysts in the bilateral ventricles. The patient eventually underwent a surgical operation to alleviate the symptoms. Colloid cysts have the potential to be misdiagnosed in the clinical practice;(More)
MiR-92b was upregulated in gliomas. However, the association of miR-92b with glioma cell apoptosis and survival remains unknown. Proliferation capability of glioma cells upon tranfection with miR-92b mimics or inhibitors was detected by mutiple analyses, including MTT assays, colony formation assay. Apoptosis abilities of glioma cells were detected by flow(More)
