BACKGROUND The purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations and the response to first-line chemotherapy in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS A total of 266 patients with stage IIIB or IV NSCLC who received platinum-based doublet therapies as(More)
Lung cancer remains the leading common cause of cancer-related death, with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounting for 80% of all cases. To date, platinum-based doublet chemotherapy is the cornerstone of first-line therapy. However, these agents have limited use in patients who have relapsed and have metastatic disease. Therefore, novel strategies are(More)
PURPOSE The primary aim of this research was to investigate the association between uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase (UGT)1A1 gene polymorphisms and the toxicities of irinotecan-based regimens in Chinese patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. METHODS The study analyzed the distribution of UGT1A1*28/*6 gene polymorphisms by polymerase chain(More)
The demand for superior grain quality represents a major issue in rice (Oryza sativa L.) breeding. To study the genetic basis of rice grain quality, including traits specifying grain dimension and percentage of grains with chalkiness, quantitative genetic analysis was conducted in a population of 37 introgression lines (ILs) of indica elite variety Habataki(More)
The human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) represents one of the most studied tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) for cancer immunotherapy. The monoclonal antibody (mAb) trastuzumab has improved the outcomes of patients with HER2+ breast cancer. However, a large number of HER2+ tumors are not responsive to, or become resistant to, trastuzumab-based(More)
Chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) are recombinant receptors that combine the specificity of an antigen-specific antibody with the T-cell’s activating functions. Initial clinical trials of genetically engineered CAR T cells have significantly raised the profile of T cell therapy, and great efforts have been made to improve this approach. In this review, we(More)
PURPOSE Despite advancements in its treatment, gastric cancer continues to be one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide. Adoptive transfer of chimeric antigen receptor-modified T cells is a promising antitumor therapy for many cancers. The purpose of this study was to construct a chimeric receptor linking the extracellular domain of NKG2D to the(More)
The study of 1000-grain weight (TGW) and percentage of grains with chalkiness (PGWC) is very important in rice. In this study, a set of introgression lines (ILs), derived from Sasanishiki/Habataki with Sasanishiki as the recurrent parent, were used to detect correlations and quantitative trait loci (QTL) on TGW and PGWC in two different environments.(More)
