XIAP-associated factor 1 (XAF1) was identified as a novel X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) binding partner that can reverse the anti-apoptotic effect of XIAP. XAF1 levels are greatly decreased in many cancer tissues and cell lines. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of XAF1 and XIAP in advanced epithelial ovarian cancer and role(More)
Ovarian cancer has the highest mortality rate among gynecologic malignancies in the world, and the development of drug resistance is a major impediment toward successful treatment of the desease. Emodin has been reported to sensitize human tumor cells to chemotherapeutic agents. The present study investigated whether emodin could overcome chemoresistance of(More)
To investigate whether postoperative GnRH agonist (GnRH-a) treatment can prevent endometriosis recurrence. This meta-analysis searched PubMed, Embase and Cochrane Library for relevant studies published online before June 2015. Seven randomized controlled trials including 328 patients with postoperative GnRH-a treatment and 394 patients in control group were(More)
The signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) regulates target gene expression by binding to a consensus DNA sequence within the promoter of the target genes. The constitutive activation of STAT3 has been shown to contribute to tumorigenesis in ovarian cancer and it has been reported to be a key factor for drug resistance in ovarian cancer.(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, noncoding RNAs that are believed to play fundamental roles in tumorigenesis and tumor development at the posttranscriptional level, as negative regulators of gene expression. This study was designed to evaluate the expression and anticancer effect of miR-519d in ovarian cancer. METHODS The expression levels of(More)
It is uncommon that fertility is preserved in young nulliparous females with low-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS). Therefore, successful pregnancy following such conservative management has been rarely reported in previous literature. A 25-year-old female (gravida, 0; para, 0) underwent hysteroscopic surgery and was pathologically diagnosed with an(More)
Endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) is a rare malignant tumor of the uterus. The standard treatment is surgery, such as total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. The use of adjuvant treatment, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy and endocrine therapy, remains controversial, so it is uncommon for conservative management to be performed in(More)
X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis‑associated factor 1 (XAF1) was identified as a novel X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) binding partner that may reverse the anti‑apoptotic effect of XIAP. Previous studies have revealed that XAF1 serves an important role in cancer angiogenesis. Vasculogenic mimicry (VM) describes the formation of fluid‑conducting(More)
