BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Although evidence for a significant survival benefit of chest radiotherapy has been proven, no conclusion could be drawn regarding the optimal timing of chest radiation. The aim of this study is to explore whether the timing of chest radiation may influence the survival of the patients with limited-stage small-cell lung cancer(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Studies of passive smoking exposure in China however are of particular interest, because of the high lung cancer rate in people who are mostly non-smokers. The aim of this study is to explore the relationship between passive smoking and lung cancer among non-smoking Chinese. METHODS By searching Medline, PubMed, CENTRAL (the(More)
This paper established a random, fuzzy double uncertain mathematical model of distribution network planning based on credibility theory. The new model takes into account the load node and line price uncertainty. The simulation results show that the adaptive ability of load model development of strong, robust and has a good flexibility.
A novel "one-pot" strategy was developed for the preparation of amino acid (AA)-silica hybrid monolithic column. The basic AA (L-Arginine, L-Lysine and L-Histidine) was covalently incorporated into the silica hybrid skeleton via the epoxy ring-opening reaction between the amine group and the glycidyl moiety in γ-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS),(More)
BACKGROUND Aberrant methylation of CpG islands acquired in tumor cells in promoter regions plays an important role in carcinogenesis. Accumulated evidence demonstrates P(16INK4a) gene promoter hypermethylation is involved in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), indicating it may be a potential biomarker for this disease. The aim of this study is to(More)
Cystic lymphangioma mainly occurs in children. Cystic mediastinal lymphangioma (CML) originates from mediastinal tissues and is an extremely uncommon cystic lymphangioma that develops from the lymphatic vessels. The present study reports the case of 46-year-old male patient with a giant CML that was surgically resected by video-assisted thoracoscopy. The(More)
In bacterial genomes, the compactly encoded genes and operons are well organized, with genes in the same biological pathway or operons in the same regulon close to each other on the genome sequence. In addition, the linearly close genes have a higher probability of co-expression and their protein products tend to form protein–protein interactions. However,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE cytokeratin-19 fragment (CYFRA21-1) is a soluble protein in serum, and may be a useful circulating tumor marker. The aim of this study is to investigate the diagnostic value of the peripheral blood CYFRA21-1 in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS the levels of peripheral blood CYFRA21-1 were detected in 107 patients with(More)
Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs) are rare, with an expected incidence of 0.0001% per year in the general population and 4.6% in patients with von Recklinghausen's disease. They are defined as any malignant tumors arising or differentiating from cells of the peripheral nerve sheath. MPNSTs can develop in various sites including the trunk and(More)
Gastrointestinal fistula is the most serious complication of esophageal and gastric cardiac cancer surgery. According to occurrence of organ, gastrointestinal fistula can be divided into anastomotic fistula, gastric fistula; According to occurrence site, fistula can be divided into cervical fistula, thoracic fistula; According to time of occurrence, can be(More)
