In recent years, radiolabelled monoclonal antibodies have been evaluated for their use in the diagnosis and treatment of neoplastic disease. One isotope which has not been assessed for antibody targeting is 32P, even though it has many favourable radiobiological characteristics and has been used clinically for the treatment of certain neoplastic disorders(More)
Numerous studies have investigated the association between three polymorphisms (Lys939Gln, Ala499Val and PAT−/+) of Xeroderma pigmentosum group C (XPC) gene and bladder cancer susceptibility; however, the findings are inconclusive. In order to acquire a more precise estimation of the relationship, we performed a meta-analysis based on 10 studies including(More)
AIM To investigate the role of miR-26b and Mcl-1 in TRAIL-inducing cell death in hepatocellular carcinoma. Methods. The expression of miR-26b and Mcl-1 in HCC was detected by RT-qPCR and western blot. The regulation of Mcl-1 by miR-26b was determined by luciferase reporter assay. MTT and flow cytometry were employed to detect the cell viability and(More)
Breast cancer is one of the most common malignancies and a major cause of cancer-related mortality all over the world. A growing body of reports revealed that microRNAs play essential roles in the progression of cancers. Aberrant expression of miR-503 has been reported in several kinds of cancer. The aim of the current study was to elucidate the role of(More)
BACKGROUND Inhalation of chemotherapeutic drugs directly into the lungs augments the drug exposure to lung cancers. The inhalation of free drugs however results in over exposure and causes severe adverse effect to normal cells. In the present study, epidermal growth factor (EGF)-modified gelatin nanoparticles (EGNP) was developed to administer doxorubicin(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide. Sphingosine kinase 1 (SphK1), which phosphorylates sphingosine to sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), is overexpressed in various types of cancers and may act as an oncogene in tumorigenesis. However, little is known about the role of SphK1 in CRC patients. We studied the expression of SphK1 in(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we investigated the functional correlation between microRNA-210 (miR-210) and gene of F-box protein 31 (FBXO31) in regulating breast cancer. METHODS Dual-luciferase assay and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction were used to investigate the binding of miR-210 with FBXO31 and their expression patterns in breast cancer.(More)
Although a number of studies suggested that WT1 rs16754 polymorphism might be related to decreased relapse free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS). The results remain controversial. Published reports were searched in PubMed, EMBASE, and Google Scholar. Twelve publications with 3903 patients had met the inclusion criteria and were subjected to further(More)
We examined the expression pattern and functional roles of microRNA 15a-5p (miR-15a-5p) in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Possible miR-15a-5p aberrant expression in HCC cell lines or clinical HCC specimens was examined by quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR). In HCC HepG2 and SNU-182 cells, miR-15a-5p was ectopically overexpressed by lentiviral(More)
