Bochdalek hernia is the most common type of congenital diaphragmatic hernia. It appears frequently in infants but rarely in adults. We present the case of a 50-year-old female han patient with tremendous left-sided congenital posterolateral diaphragmatic hernia (Bochdalek hernia) who also has a pair of supernumerary breasts and pulmonary hypoplasia of the(More)
Distinguishing between multiple primary lung cancers and metastatic tumors is often difficult when the tumor histology is same. Since genomic instability is a common feature of cancer, we hypothesized that independently arising neoplasms in an individual patient would exhibit measurable genomic variation, enabling discrimination of tumor lineage and(More)
Caveolin-1 (Cav-1) may act as a prognostic biomarker in human cancers. This study is prepared to clarify the prognostic value of Cav-1 in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). All eligible articles from China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Pubmed, Highvire, and Science Direct systems were incorporated into this study. We extracted the(More)
BACKGROUND The distinguishing of intrapulmonary metastatic tumors from multiple primary lung cancers is difficult but of great importance for the therapeutic management and prognosis of these patients. METHODS We used genomic DNA analyzed by six microsatellites (D7S1824, D15S822, D2S1363, D10S1239, D6S1056, and D22S689) with PCR to identify discordant(More)
BACKGROUND A retrospective study involving 502 lung cancer patients who had received pulmonary resection from 2009-2013 was conducted in order to compare the clinical characteristics of patients whose diagnosis was detected by low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) and computed radiography (CR). METHODS Two groups were established, based on the method of(More)
BACKGROUND The "seed and soil" hypothesis emphasizes the importance of interactions between tumor cells and their microenvironment. CAFs (Cancer associated fibroblasts) are important components of the tumor microenvironment. They were widely involved in cancer cells growth and metastasis. Fibroblasts may also play a role in inflammatory disease. The(More)
Recently, we had the honor of reading a meta-analysis article published in Tumor Biology which was completed by Jie et al. Because of our interest in the correlations between microRNAs (miRs) and human cancer prognosis, we carefully read the entire article. Jie et al. put forward a standpoint that deregulation of miR-100 in cancerous tissues could(More)
Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are one major type of component identified in the tumor microenvironment. Studies have focused on the genetic and epigenetic status of CAFs, since they are critical in tumor progression and differ phenotypically and functionally from normal fibroblasts. The present review summarizes the recent achievements in(More)
To investigate the association between the clinical characteristics and clinical modes of surgically treated lung cancer patients, we conducted a retrospective study with 1097 lung cancer patients receiving pulmonary resection between 2012 and 2013.A physical examination or screening (PES) group (n = 267) and a symptomatic (SY) group (n = 830) were(More)
Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is a serine/threonine protein kinase responsible for regulating ribosomal biogenesis and protein synthesis. Dysregulation of mTOR contributes to tumorigenesis, angiogenesis, cellular growth and metastasis but its roles in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) are controversial. Therefore, the objective of this study(More)
