PURPOSE The potential prognostic value of survivin in resected non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is variably reported. The objective of this study was to conduct a systematic review of literatures evaluating survivin expression in resected NSCLC as a prognostic indicator. METHODS Relevant literatures were identified using PubMed, EMBASE and Chinese(More)
Parafascicular (PF) neurons responding to noxious stimuli and focal electrical stimulation of midbrain, diencephalon, and hypothalamic nuclei, which send projections to PF, modulates the PF spontaneous and noxious-evoked responses. Some cerebellar efferents ascend to PF. This investigation attempted to study the effect of cerebellar stimulation on(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the effects of esophageal cancer-related gene 4 (ECRG4) expression levels on chemotherapeutic sensitivity of gastric cancer cells. A SGC-7901 cell system with tetracycline-inducible ECRG4 expression (SGC-7901/ECRG4) was successfully established. ECRG4 mRNA and protein expression levels were detected using quantitative(More)
Tilted fiber Bragg grating (TFBG) biosensors can be used as a cost-effective and relatively simple-to-implement alternative to well established biosensor platforms for high sensitivity biological sample measurements in situ or possibly in vivo. The fiber biosensor presented in this study utilizes an in-fiber 12° tilted Bragg grating to excite a strong(More)
In this study, we investigated whether COL4A3 mRNA expression levels were associated with clinical outcomes after treatment with a combination of gemcitabine (Gem)/cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (CDDP) regimen for patients with advanced stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Response and survival were correlated with the level of COL4A3 expression in(More)
