MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play a critical role in controlling tumor invasion and metastasis via regulating the expression of a variety of targets, which act as oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes. Abnormally expressed miR-625-3p has been observed in several types of human cancers. However, the molecular mechanisms of miR-625-3p-mediated tumorigenesis are largely(More)
3-Bromopyruvic acid (3-BP) is a well-known inhibitor of energy metabolism. It has been proposed as an anticancer agent as well as a chemosensitizer for use in combination with anticancer drugs. 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) is the first-line chemotherapeutic agent for colorectal cancer; however, most patients develop resistance to 5-FU through various mechanisms.(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to observe (i) changes in fasting blood glucose (FBG) in tuberculosis (TB) patients before and during anti-TB treatment, (ii) whether FBG levels were stable or unstable and (iii) baseline characteristics associated with an unstable FBG. METHOD TB patients consecutively attended six clinics or hospitals. FBG measurements were made at(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) may serve as potential targets in various types of cancer; however, the roles of these proteins in gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) have not been reported previously. In the present study, the expression levels of COX-2 and phospho (p)-ERK1/2 in GBC were examined and the biological(More)
