BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays an irreplaceable role in the preoperative diagnosis of glioma, and its imaging features are the base of making treatment decisions in patients with glioma, but it is still controversial whether peritumoral edema shown by MRI from preoperative routine scans are associated with patient survival. The aim of(More)
Besides STAT3 tyrosine 705 phosphorylation (pTyr705-STAT3), phosphorylation of STAT3 at serine 727 (pSer727-STAT3) is shown to contribute to tumorigenesis and be closely related with resistance to radiotherapy and chemotherapy in glioma, but there is currently no study regarding its relevance to prognosis in glioblastoma (GBM). Here, the expression of(More)
STAT3 tyrosine705 phosphorylation (p-STAT3, Tyr705), a molecular hub for several signal transduction pathways of glioma, plays a central role in glioblastoma (GBM) carcinogenesis and progression. However, it is still controversial whether p-STAT3 expression is associated with the clinical outcome of patients with glioblastoma. Such evidence would contribute(More)

It is well recognized that peritumoral edema is vasogenic cerebral edema in malignant glioma, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) induced by phosphorylated signal transducer and activator of transcription factor 3 (pSTAT3) strongly contributes to tumor angiogenesis in glioblastoma. However, there is no study with regard to the correlation between(More)
There are limited researches focusing on microvascular patterns (MVPs) in human glioblastoma and their prognostic impact. We evaluated MVPs of 78 glioblastomas by CD34/periodic acid-Schiff dual staining and by cluster analysis of the percentage of microvascular area for distinct microvascular formations. The distribution of 5 types of basic microvascular(More)
Delta-like ligand-4 (DLL4)-Notch signaling is known to play a pivotal role in the regulation of tumor angiogenesis. We had previously found that DLL4 was overexpressed, while Notch1 receptor, which binds to DLL4 during angiogenesis, was absent in the majority of human primary glioblastomas. Thus, DLL4-Notch signaling pathway in the regulation of tumor(More)
Interferon-induced protein with tetratricopeptide repeat 1 (IFIT1) plays a key role in growth suppression and apoptosis promotion in cancer cells. Interferon was reported to induce the expression of IFIT1 and inhibit the expression of O-6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT).This study aimed to investigate the expression of IFIT1, the correlation(More)
