Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β)-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been shown to be related to the pathogenesis of various diseases including lung cancer. Recently, microRNAs (miRNA) have been recognized as a new class of genes involved in human tumorigenesis. MiR-23a/24/27a is a miRNA cluster(More)
Giant cell tumor (GCT) of bone was first established as a distinct clinicopathological radiographic entity in 1940 when Jaffe distinguished it from other lesions containing giant cells. GCT is rare in patients under 15 years of age. We report a case of GCT in a 10-year-old boy whose X-ray films showed osteolysis suggesting a malignant bone tumor. We believe(More)
After the development of EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), genetic testing of EGFR became required for effective treatment of lung cancer. Initially, the testing was conducted separately for each mutated region. However, many EGFR mutations have since been identified that determine the efficacy of EGFR-TKIs. Therefore, genetic testing of EGFR by next(More)
