MATHE is a safe and minimally invasive technique that allows direct visualization of mediastinal structures and lymph node sampling was feasible because of clear visualization of the mediastinum.
The nm23-H1 gene as a predictor of sensitivity to chemotherapeutic agents in oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma
The value of nm23-H1 expression as a prognostic marker for OSCC patients who are to undergo cisplatin-based chemotherapy is suggested, suggest the conclusion that reduced expression ofnm23- H1 may be associated with resistance to cisPlatin.

The data support the conclusion that reduced expression of intracellular nm23-H1 in OSCC cells is associated with cisplatin resistance via the prevention of both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA damage and suggest that it may be related to Na+, K+-ATPase activity, which is responsible for intrACEllular cisplinatin accumulation.

It is concluded that caution should be taken before combining radiation therapy with the use of a stent and a 71-year-old man who received such combination therapy and died of severe sepsis 65 days after the stent was inserted.
