MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in cancer development and progression. Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) frequently undergoes metastasis and has a high mortality rate. The current study measured miRNA‑126 (miR‑126) expression levels in 128 pairs of clear cell RCC and adjacent normal kidney tissue samples by reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence of the association of metabolic syndrome (MetS) with cancer risk is accumulating. However, uncertainties still exist as to the link of MetS with bladder cancer. This study aimed to assess the relationship between MetS and the risk of urothelial carcinoma of the bladder (UC) in a Chinese population. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed(More)
Recent studies have indicated that low circulating adiponectin concentrations are associated with a higher risk of several cancers, including renal cell carcinoma. In this case-control study, we examined the frequency of single nucleotide polymorphisms (rs182052G>A, rs266729C>G, and rs3774262G>A) in the adiponectin gene (ADIPOQ) in 1004 patients with clear(More)
The global incidence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) is dramatically increasing. Considerable interest has been devoted to the relationship between MetS and prostate cancer (PCa) risk. However, few studies have examined the association between MetS and PCa progression. This retrospective study consisted of 1016 patients with PCa who received radical(More)
BACKGROUND To assess whether the clinical outcome of advanced and metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) treated with targeted therapy differs between young and old patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 327 patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma and mRCC who received targeted therapy in two Chinese clinical centers were analyzed retrospectively.(More)
