Metastasis-associated in colon cancer 1 (MACC1) has recently been identified as a novel independent prognostic indicator for metastasis occurrence, overall survival and cancer-free survival for patients with colon cancer and other solid tumors. In this study, we investigated the role of MACC1 in the development and progression of renal pelvis carcinoma, a(More)
OBJECTIVE Human murine double minute 2 protein (MDM2) is mainly a negative regulator of p53 tumor suppressor pathway. We aimed to investigate the association between MDM2 SNP309 polymorphism and bladder cancer risk. METHODS A total of 535 bladder cancer patients and 649 health controls were recruited for our study. MDM2 SNP309 T>G polymorphism was(More)
New treatment strategies are required for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) due to its relative insensitivity to conventional radio- and chemotherapies. The promising strategy of tumor inhibition using human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT)-controlled herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase/ganciclovir (HSV-TK/GCV) in the hTERT promoter-driven HSV-TK/GCV(More)
Bladder cancer is one of the most common malignancies worldwide and the stage pT1nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) has a high probability of recurrence after initial diagnosis and treatment. However, risk factors predictive of repeated recurrence and progression of pT1 bladder tumors after primary relapse have not been uncovered. Thus, we conducted(More)
This study was done to clarify the clinical significance of vibration-induced nystagmus (VIN) and to calculate the sensitivity and the specificity of the vibration test. One hundred and twelve patients with unilateral peripheral vestibular disorders and thirty normal subjects were enrolled into this study. However, patients with spontaneous nystagmus were(More)
a systematic project. Automatic dehydration machine procedure can obtain better results and greatly improve the efficiency for large slices manipulation of prostate. Background: To investigate the role of miR-186 in the carcinogenesis and metastasis of human urothelial bladder cancer and its potential target protein. Methods: Quantitative real-time PCR(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the value of extensive transurethral resection (TUR) in the diagnosis and treatment of nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) and its further impact on the recurrence rate at the first follow-up cystoscopy (RR-FFC). PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective review of consecutive series of 523 patients with NMIBCs who underwent TUR from(More)
rs11892031/rs401681 and tumor grade/stage. Results showed that heterogeneity in ORs of tumor categories was not significant for either rs11892031 or rs401681 (P>0.05), indicating that the two SNPs seemingly do not associate with tumor grade and stage of bladder cancer in our study population. Conclusions: The present study suggests that the SNPs rs11892031(More)
BACKGROUND Effects of high Gz acceleration can threaten flight safety through loss of consciousness or a lesser-known phenomenon, G-induced vestibular dysfunction (GIVD). There are reports of GIVD following high-G flight or centrifuge exposure. The aim of this study was to explore this problem under controlled conditions using a human centrifuge. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) has been widely used worldwide, to determine whether RAPN is a safe and effective alternative to open partial nephrectomy (OPN) via the comparison of RANP and OPN. METHODS A comprehensive literature search was performed within the databases including PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Embase updated on 30(More)
