Recent evidence has accumulated that MicroRNA (miRNA) dysregulation occurs in the majority of human malignancies including acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and may contribute to onco-/leukemo-genesis. The expression levels of miR-370 and FoxM1 were assessed in 48 newly diagnosed AML patients, 40 AML patients in 1st complete remission (CR) and 21 healthy(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term survival outcomes and toxicity of NPC patients treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). MATERIALS AND METHODS From May 2001 to October 2008, 868 non-metastatic NPC patients treated by IMRT were analyzed retrospectively. The Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) criteria were used to assess(More)
PURPOSE Reports of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for early-stage nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) have been limited. The present study evaluated the long-term survival outcomes and toxicity of early-stage NPC patients treated with IMRT alone. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between February 2001 and January 2008, 198 early-stage (T1-T2bN0-N1M0) NPC patients(More)
Divergent lncRNAs that are transcribed in the opposite direction to nearby protein-coding genes comprise a significant proportion (∼20%) of total lncRNAs in mammalian genomes. Through genome-wide analysis, we found that the distribution of this lncRNA class strongly correlates with essential developmental regulatory genes. In pluripotent cells, divergent(More)
BACKGROUND N-stage is related to distant metastasis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients. We performed this study to compare the efficacy of different chemotherapy sequences in advanced N-stage (N2 and N3) NPC patients treated with intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). METHODS From 2001 to 2008, 198 advanced N-stage NPC patients were(More)
BACKGROUND Salvage treatment for locally recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is complicated and relatively limited. Radiotherapy, combined with effective concomitant chemotherapy, may improve clinical treatment outcomes. We conducted a phase II randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of intensity-modulated radiotherapy with concomitant(More)
UNLABELLED Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infections are strongly implicated in human gastric mucosa-associated diseases. Forkhead box M1 (FoxM1), a key positive regulator of cell proliferation, is overexpressed in gastric cancer. MicroRNAs are important post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression. In this study, the effects of H. pylori infection(More)
A target-specific MRI contrast agent for tumor cells expressing high affinity folate receptor was synthesized using generation five (G5) ofpolyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimer. Surface modified dendrimer was functionalized for targeting with folic acid (FA) and the remaining terminal primary amines of the dendrimer were conjugated with the bifunctional NCS-DOTA(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyze the mode of relapse patterns and survival of 209 patients with stage IVA and IVB nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). A total of 209 patients who underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and were subsequently histologically diagnosed with nondisseminated stage IV NPC received intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) as(More)
In order to determine the expression pattern of miR-101 in epithelial ovarian neoplasms and assess the functions and mechanism of miR-101 in tumorigenesis, we detected the expression of miR-101 and zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) in normal, benign, and malignant ovarian tissues and used miR-101 lentivirus infection to increase miR-101 expression in ovarian cancer(More)
