PURPOSE Several studies have investigated the association of the interleukin (IL) 17A and IL-17F polymorphisms and cancer of various organs. However, the role of the IL-17A and IL-17F polymorphisms in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) remains unclear. Thus we sought to clarify the association of the rs2275913, rs763780, and rs2397084 polymorphisms with(More)
Deregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) is essential to tumor development, and serum miRNA profiles have been reported in several cancers. However, the serum miRNA profile in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) remained unclear. The present study aimed to explore abnormal miRNA profile in sera samples from OSCC patients and the association of miR-483-5p with(More)
OBJECTIVE To synthesize a biodegradable non-viral gene carrier with a high transfection efficiency and a low cytotoxicity. METHODS Poly(ethylene glycol)-block-(poly(L-glutamic acid)-graft-polyethylenimine) was prepared via ammonolysis of poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly (γ-benzyl L-glutamate) with the low-molecular-mass polyethylenimine (600 Da).
