Percutaneous microballoon compression of the trigeminal ganglion is a brand new operative technique for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. However, it is unclear how the procedure mediates pain relief, and there are no standardized criteria, such as compression pressure, compression time or balloon shape, for the procedure. In this study, percutaneous(More)
Sperm-associated antigen 9 (SPAG9) is a recently characterized oncoprotein involved in the progression of several human malignancies. The present study aims to investigate the expression pattern and biological roles of SPAG9 protein in human astrocytoma. SPAG9 expression was analyzed in 105 astrocytoma specimens by immunohistochemistry. We observed negative(More)
Cancerous inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (CIP2A) is a recently characterized oncoprotein involved in the progression of several human malignancies. The present study aimed to investigate the clinical significance and biological function of CIP2A in astrocytoma. CIP2A expression was analyzed in 135 archived astrocytoma specimens using(More)
Girdin, an actin‑binding protein, is associated with cell migration and is expressed at high levels in glioma cells. However, the association between girdin and the development of glioma remains to be elucidated. In the present study, short‑hairpin RNA technology was used to silence the gene expression of girdin. The effects of girdin silencing on glioma(More)
BACKGROUND Glioma is the most common intracranial tumor and has a poor patient prognosis. The presence of brain tumor stem cells was gradually being understood and recognized, which might be beneficial for the treatment of glioma. OBJECTIVE To use bibliometric indexes to track study focuses on glioma stem cell, and to investigate the relationships among(More)
Tbx2 is a cancer-related protein that was found to be overexpressed in several human malignancies. The present study aims to investigate the clinical significance and biological role of Tbx2 in human astrocytoma. We examined its protein expression in 102 cases of astrocytoma tissues using immunohistochemical staining. Negative Tbx2 staining was observed in(More)
