BACKGROUND Overexpression of microRNA-182 (miR-182) is found in various human cancers, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Our aim is to investigate the association of miR-182 expression with the sensitivity of NSCLC to cisplatin. METHODS TaqMan RT-PCR or Western blot assay was performed to detect the expression of mature miR-182 and programmed(More)
The development of multidrug resistance (MDR) is a crucial cause of therapy failure in gastric cancer, which results in disease recurrence and metastasis. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been proven to be critical in carcinogenesis and metastasis of gastric cancer. However, little is known about the roles of ANRIL (antisense non-coding RNA in the INK4(More)
The optimal neoadjuvant and adjuvant treatment for gastric cancer remains controversial. We conducted a phase II study using preoperative chemotherapy with modified FOLFOX6 followed by surgical resection and postoperative chemoradiation in patients with gastric carcinoma. Preoperative chemotherapy (two or three cycles) consisted of a 2-h infusion of(More)
p53 and microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3A (LC3A) are regulators of apoptosis and autophagy and are expressed at high levels in a number of human tumors. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the clinicopathological and prognostic significance of p53 and LC3A expression levels in esophageal squamous cell carcinomas (ESCCs). p53 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the clinical effect of Ziyin Huoxue Granule (ZHG) combined glucocorticoids and antibiotics in treatment of radiation pneumonitis. METHODS Totally 70 radiation pneumonitis patients were assigned to the treatment group and the control group according to random digit table, 35 in each group. All patients received glucocorticoids and(More)
The optimal post-operative adjuvant treatment for completely resected gastric cancer with D2 lymphadenectomy remains controversial. The present study was a phase II trial on post-operative chemoradiotherapy in 30 patients with gastric cancer. Patients with stage II to IV (M0) gastric cancer received two cycles of chemotherapy prior to and following(More)
Approximately 10% of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) cases develop superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS). Many SCLC patients with SVCS have relatively limited disease, requiring curative rather than palliative treatment. Besides chemotherapy, radiotherapy is important for treating SCLC with SVCS. We retrospectively evaluated the influence of radiotherapy dose on(More)
BACKGROUND Endostar combined with concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CRT) has been used in patients with gastric cancers (GCs). However, there are no reliable markers to predict the treatment response and prognosis of these patients. Apelin and its receptor (APJ) are involved in angiogenesis in tumor tissues. We aimed to study whether Apelin and Apelin receptor(More)
