This study was performed to evaluate the potential association between serum heavy metal levels and lung function in a cohort of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. We analyzed data from 152 subjects enrolled in a cohort study on COPD from 2012 to 2013 and living in a dusty area. In total, 152 subjects from the cohort study were enrolled;(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer related death. Alterations in gene sequence, structure, and expression have an important role in the pathogenesis of lung cancer. Fusion genes and alternative splicing of cancer-related genes have the potential to be oncogenic. In the current study, we performed RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) to(More)
Marjolin's ulcer is the malignant transformation of chronic nonhealing ulcers that have developed in burn scars or in any other chronic wound.

We reviewed 24 cases of patients who complained of chronic burn wounds(More)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a complex disorder characterized by airflow limitation. Epigenetic control affects gene expression in the lung, and microRNAs (miRNAs) are one of the primary types of epigenetic modifiers. In this study, lung tissues were obtained from 15 COPD patients and 11 subjects with normal lung function. RNA was(More)
