Thymus hyperplasia associated with Sjogren's syndrome is a rare morbid state. The present study described a 55-year-old woman who presented with a dryness of the oral cavity, and itchy eyes. Chest computed tomography identified a mass, measuring 4×2.5×2.5 cm, located at the anterior mediastinum. The mass was suspected as thymoma, thymic cyst, or teratoma,(More)
Esophageal neuroendocrine neoplasms are rare. With the improvement and popularization of diagnostic methods, the morbidity statistics have increased annually in recent years. There are currently no treatment guidelines for esophageal neuroendocrine neoplasms, and surgery is the only cure. This usually involves radical surgery when the tumor is limited to(More)
Object. To test whether preoperative immunonutrition is efficacious in reducing postoperative complications in patients of thymoma with myasthenia gravis (MG). Material and Methods. A total of 244 patients operated on for thymoma with myasthenia gravis were prospectively assigned to two groups, each receiving seven-day preoperative and seven-day(More)
Purpose. We examined the role of miR-20b in development of thymoma-associated myasthenia gravis, especially in T cell proliferation and activation. Materials and Methods. Using qRT-PCR, we assessed expression levels of miR-20b and its target genes in cultured cells and patient samples and examined the proliferation of cultured cells, using MTT cell(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) stemness and chemoresistance represent significant barriers to successful treatment. Downregulation of microRNA 129 (miR-129) has been implicated in a variety of cancers, and miR-129-5p has recently been shown to reduce lung cancer proliferation and metastasis. In this study, we used NSCLC cell lines A549 and H460 to(More)
