An effective cancer therapeutic should target tumours specifically with limited systemic toxicity. Here, we transformed an attenuated Salmonella typhimurium (S. typhimurium) with an Apoptin expressing plasmid into a human laryngeal carcinoma cell line. The expression of the inserted gene was measured using fluorescence and immunoblotting assays. The(More)
The presence of cancer stem cells (CSCs) has major implications in the choice of cancer treatment strategy and is responsible for tumor relapse. CSCs have been isolated and characterized in several types of cancer; however, studies concerning the CSCs from nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) are limited. Thus, the present study was designed to isolate and(More)
There is accumulating evidence indicating that long non-coding RNA H19 and its mature product miR-675 play essential roles for tumor growth and progression. However, their prognostic value in human head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), particular in laryngeal carcinoma, remains to be elucidated. In this study, we observed that both H19 and miR-675(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing evidence demonstrating the role of human trophoblast cell surface antigen 2 (TROP2) in cancer development and progression. However, their prognostic value in Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) associated nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) remains to be elucidated. METHOD The prognostic significances of TROP2 and Ki-67 were determined by(More)
The present study aimed to identify key genes and relevant microRNAs (miRNAs) involved in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). The gene expression profiles of LSCC tissue samples were analyzed with various bioinformatics tools. A gene expression data set (GSE51985), including ten laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) tissue samples and ten adjacent(More)
PURPOSE In the present study, we made an attempt to elucidate the role of oversecretion of interleukin-4 (IL-4) in cancer stem cells (CSCs) of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). METHODS HNSCC samples were analyzed for the presence of CSCs by flow cytometry. In addition, we have performed drug and apoptosis resistance assays to determine the(More)
