BACKGROUND Expression patterns of microRNAs in serum are involved in potentially non-invasive biomarkers for various diseases. The purpose of this study is to examine the expression of miR-21 in serum of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and to validate the significance of miR-21 in early diagnosis, genotyping, treatment options as well as(More)
Atherosclerosis (AS) is chronic inflammation in response to lipid accumulation. MicroRNA-155 (miR-155) is being increasingly studied to evaluate its potential as diagnostic biomarkers and therapeutic targets in many diseases. However, delineating the role of miR-155 in AS remains difficult. Here, we detected constitutive expression of several microRNAs(More)
BACKGROUND Primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignancies in the world. However, the molecular pathogenesis of HCC is not well-understood, and the prognosis for patients with HCC remains very poor. METHODS To disclose detailed genetic mechanisms in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with a view toward development of novel(More)

OBJECTIVE To summarize the successful experience of 45 patients with minimally invasive mitral valve surgery via right minithoracotomy. METHODS Forty-five patients with mitral valve disease were enrolled. A main surgical wound (4-6 cm)was made over the lateral border of the right breast. Cardiopulmonary bypass was established via femoral cannulation. The(More)
