BACKGROUND MALAT1, a newly discovered long noncoding RNA (lncRNA), has been reported to be highly expressed in many types of cancers. This meta-analysis summarizes its potential prognostic value in digestive system malignancies. METHODS A quantitative meta-analysis was performed through a systematic search in PubMed, Cochrane Library, Web of Science and(More)
Impaired myocardial reperfusion, defined angiographically by myocardial blush grade (MBG) 0 or 1, is associated with adverse clinical outcomes in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of admission mean platelet volume (MPV) on the myocardial reperfusion and 30-day all-cause(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of mean platelet volume (MPV) on the intracoronary thrombus burden and short-term mortality in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND Platelets play a crucial role in the pathophysiology of coronary(More)
Recent studies in cancer have demonstrated that cancerous tissues have a significantly higher MALAT1 level than in noncancerous tissues. Overexpression of MALAT1 is associated with susceptibility to lymph node metastasis. This meta-analysis collected all relevant articles and explored the association of MALAT1 expression levels with lymph node metastasis in(More)
Elevated LDL-C/HDL-C ratio has been shown to be a marker of lipid metabolism as well as a good predictor of coronary artery disease (CAD). Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate whether the LDL-C/HDL-C ratio is useful for detecting cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in general healthy Uygur adults in Xinjiang. A total of 4047 Uygur subjects(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammation plays an important role in the pathophysiology of coronary artery disease (CAD). NF-κB is a central regulator of inflammation. Thus the aim of this study was to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis investigating whether the polymorphism in the NFKB1 promoter region (NFKB1-94ins(I)/del(D)ATTG, rs28362491) is associated with(More)
OBJECTIVES Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common chronic inflammatory disease worldwide. NF-κB, a central regulator of inflammation, is involved in various inflammatory diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between NFKB1 and NFKBIA polymorphisms and the susceptibility to CAD and their impact on plasma levels of IL-6(More)
