Adrenomedullin (ADM), a multifunctional regulatory peptide, is potentially induced by hypoxia in physiological and pathological tissues, including many types of malignant tumors. Recent research has demonstrated that ADM expression is highly associated with the prognosis and disease severity of human osteosarcoma. However, the effect of ADM on the apoptosis(More)
Small-molecule vascular disrupting agents (VDAs) target the established tumor blood vessels, resulting in rapidly and selectively widespread ischemia and necrosis of central tumor; meanwhile, blood flow in normal tissues is relatively unaffected. Although VDAs therapy is considered an important option for treatment, its use is still limited. The tumor cells(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare anterior and posterior approaches for treating cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) involving more than two levels, especially in regard to quality of life and cost effectiveness. METHODS The authors studied 116 CSM patients who underwent decompressive surgery by either an anterior or a posterior approach with instrumentation. In the(More)
The association of TRIM29 overexpression with cancer progression and poor clinical prognosis has been reported in the context of several types of cancers. In the present study, we investigated the prognostic relevance of TRIM29 and its involvement in the progression of human osteosarcoma. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to demonstrate(More)
The expression of P53 was previously found by us significantly correlated with maximal standardized uptake value (SUVmax) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Hence, the aim of this study was to clarify the relationship between SUVmax and the status of the chemotherapy-related tumor marker expression or serum tumor markers in gastric(More)
Bone cancer pain (BCP) is one of the most difficult and intractable tasks for pain management, which is associated with spinal 'neuron-astrocytic' activation. The activation of the c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK)/chemokine (C-C motif) ligand (CCL2) signaling pathway has been reported to be critical for neuropathic pain. Rolipram (ROL), a selective(More)
Analgesic strategy of a single drug analgesia in bone cancer pain (BCP) has shifted to combined analgesia with different drugs which have different mechanism. After tumor cell inculation, the activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT3) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling pathway are involved in the(More)
