Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common cause of cancer-related death in both men and women worldwide. Recently, Disulfiram has been reported to be able to inhibit glioblastoma, prostate, or breast cancer cell proliferation. In this study, the synergistic effect of Disulfiram and copper on NSCLC cell growth was investigated. Inhibition of(More)
UNLABELLED Side population (SP) cells have stem cell-like properties with a capacity for self-renewal and are resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Therefore the presence of SP cells in human breast cancer probably has prognostic value. OBJECTIVE To investigate the characteristics of SP cells and identify the relationship between the SP cells levels(More)
Indoleamine 2, 3-dioxygenase (IDO) is a rate-limiting enzyme for tryptophan metabolism inducing immune tolerance of tumors. The purpose of this study is to investigate IDO expression and its prognostic significance in bladder urothelial carcinoma (BUC). In this study, immunohistochemical staining for IDO expression in BUC tissues (n = 84) and normal bladder(More)
The transcription factor SOX4 has functional importance in foetal lung maturation and tumorigenesis in a number of cancers. However, its biological functions in the progression of lung tumorigenesis remain unclear. In this study, we found that the expression levels of SOX4 mRNA and protein were significantly higher in Xuanwei female lung cancer tissues than(More)
Gold nanorods (AuNRs) have been used in plasmonic photothermal therapy (PPTT), which is thought to be more efficient and selective than conventional photothermal therapy. The efficiency and safety of PPTT can be improved by functionally modifying the gold nanorods with proteins or biomolecules. In this study, AuNRs were modified with anti-epidermal growth(More)
AIMS To investigate changes in cellular immune function of patients with lung cancer before and after cytokine- induced killer (CIK) cell therapy and to identify variation effects on overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 943 lung cancer patients with immune dysfunction were recruited from January 2002(More)
OBJECTIVES Lymph node involvement is a key feature and an independent prognostic factor of oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma. However, an accurate and robust assay to predict the lymphatic spread of oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma is unavailable. The purpose of this study was to determine whether serum vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C) and(More)
Bone is one of the most preferred sites of metastasis in lung cancer. Currently, bisphosphonates and denosumab are major agents for controlling tumor-associated skeletal-related events (SREs). However, both bisphosphonates and denosumab significantly increase the risk for jaw osteonecrosis. Statins, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase(More)
BACKGROUND It has been known that Kangfuxin, a drug derived from Periplaneta Americana, can induce cell apoptosis of many cancer cell lines in vitro. The aim of this study is to investigate the inhibitory effect and mechanism of Periplaneta Americana extract (PAE) on 3LL lung cancer in mice. METHODS The C57BL/6J mice transplanted with 3LL lung cancer were(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of targeted Sox4 gene-knock-down on the growth of xenografts of Xuanwei female lung cancer cell line XWLC-05 cells in nude mice. METHODS Recombinant plasmid pGFP-V-RS-Sox4 shRNA was constructed and transfected into XWLC-05 cells. Real-time quantitative PCR and Western blot were applied to confirm the effect of Sox4(More)
