Pharyngolaryngeal cancer is one of the most common head and neck cancer worldwide, and the early diagnosis and prognosis prediction are still difficult because of lacking in reliable cell markers. Although the expression of CD44 has been reported to correlate with poor prognosis of pharyngolaryngeal cancer in most literatures, some controversies still(More)
Adenoid cystic carcinoma occurring in the external auditory canal is very rare. Two cases are being reported. One was diagnosed on cytology based on which surgery was planned. In the second case, fine needle aspiration procedure had to be abandoned due to severe pain and a biopsy was required for its diagnosis. Morphologically, it resembles its more common(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), defined as recurrent abdominal pain and changes in bowel habits, seriously affects quality of life and ability to work. Ghrelin is a brain-gut hormone, which has been reported to show antinociceptive effects in peripheral pain. We investigated the effect of ghrelin on visceral hypersensitivity and pain in a(More)
AIMS Analyze the clinical applicability of glucose metabolism indexes and continuous glucose monitoring data on the qualitative diagnosis of insulinoma. METHODS Involve 22 patients with insulinoma (insulinoma group), 11 patients with hypoglycemia (hypoglycemia group) and 31 people with normal glucose tolerance (control group). HbA1c, fasting blood glucose(More)
Our previous studies suggested external auditory canal squamous cell carcinoma (EACSCC) is a rare malignancy with heterogeneous outcomes. This study aimed to identify lncRNA profile of EACSCC and determine the clinical application. Differential expression genes (DEGs) were investigated in EACSCC by whole transcriptome lncRNA arrays (GPL23178). RT-PCR was(More)
Pituitary adenomas with sphenoid sinus or clivus invasion are not uncommon, but the pathogenesis responsible for this phenomenon remains unclear. Cathepsin K, expressed predominantly in osteoclasts, can degrade type I collagen and plays an essential role in bone resorption. Recent studies reported the expression of Cathepsin K in various malignant tumors,(More)
