PURPOSE Apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease (APE1), a bifunctional AP endonuclease/redox factor, is important in DNA repair and redox signaling, may be associated with chemoresistance. In this study, we first investigated APE1 expression and its correlation with cisplatin resistance and prognosis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Then, we(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is considered to be effective treatment for many cancers including lung cancer, head and neck cancers, and prostate cancer. It uses the combination of nontoxic photosensitizers and harmless visible light to generate reactive oxygen species and kill cells. However, DNA repair and reactive oxygen species-induced signaling pathway(More)
AIM The significance of the mucinous adenocarcinoma in TNM staging and prognosis for colorectal tumor patients is still controversial. The aim was to provide a meta-analysis for TNM staging and prognostic features of colorectal tumors. METHODS 30 individual case-control studies were finally included into this meta-analysis, involving a total of 444,489(More)
Osteosarcoma is a highly vascular and extremely destructive malignancy, and the survival of patients with osteosarcoma has not improved significantly in recent years. Antiangiogenic therapy currently holds great potential in conjunction with conventional treatment modalities for osteosarcoma. However, there are examples of gradual loss of response, and(More)
Aberrant activation of β-catenin/Tcf-4 signaling has been implicated in human carcinogenesis, including colorectal cancer. In this study, we compared the effects of Tcf-4 knockdown with β-catenin knockdown on cell proliferation, apoptosis, and chemosensitivity in SW480 and HCT116 colon cancer cells using adenoviral vector-mediated short hairpin RNA (shRNA).(More)
Primary mammary neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is an uncommon entity that accounts for 2% to 5% of breast carcinomas. Recent reports have shown that NEC of the breast is an aggressive subtype of mammary carcinoma that is distinct from invasive ductal carcinoma, not otherwise specified, and have suggested that these tumors have a poorer prognosis than(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression feature of the apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease (APE1) and its correlation with clinicopathology and prognostic significance after 252Cf radiotherapy in cervical cancer. METHODS The expression of APE1 was detected by immunohistochemistry technique in 89 cases of cervical cancer (treated by 252Cf), 15 cases(More)
In the present era laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has become the gold standard treatment of choice for gallstone disease. This technique has made a new revolution in minimal invasive surgery, but also the spectrum of complications has changed. In this paper we shared our personal experience of LC in 400 hundred cases from January 2007 to December 2010,(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the role of the neuropeptide in fetal scarless wound healing. METHODS The animal models were replicated in which a full-thickness wound was inflicted on the back of rabbit fetuses at 22 days gestation (term=31 days). The progress of wound healing was observed on micro-and macro-levels at the 1 st, 2 nd, 3 rd, 5 th, 7 th, 14 th(More)
OBJECTIVE To construct a multiple myeloma (MM)-specific APE1siRNA expression vector, and detect the specific knock-down effect of the siRNA on expression of APE1 protein. METHODS APE1siRNA cDNA sequence was designed, synthesized and inserted into pSilencer 2.0-U6 linear expression vector. pSilencer APE1siRNA was digested by enzyme EcoRI and BamHI, then(More)
