AIM To investigate the relationship between expression of p21(WAF1) and p53 gene, and to evaluate the deletion and polymorphism of p21(WAF1) gene in gastric carcinoma (GC). METHODS Expression of p21 and p53 proteins, and deletion and polymorphism of p21 gene in GC were examined by streptavidin-peroxidase conjugated method (SP) and polymerase chain(More)
Several studies have assessed the association between green and black tea consumption and the risk of endometrial cancer (EC) and have yielded inconsistent results. The purpose of this meta-analysis is to systematically analyze the effect of green tea and black tea on EC risk. PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library and China Biological Medicine Database were(More)
We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the potential of erlotinib plus platinum-based chemotherapy relative to platinum-based chemotherapy alone for advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Search of PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, CBM, CNKI, China Wan Fang databases and the Cochrane library was performed for studies regarding(More)
OBJECTIVES Owing to its structural and anatomic characteristics, imaging of the lymphatic system has been difficult. The conventional diagnostic method of radionuclide-based imaging has the disadvantage of poor resolution. Recent work has shown that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can depict lymphatic channels in patients with lymphedema. This study(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Diallyl disulfide (DADS) can induce apoptosis in various cancer cell lines in vitro. Leukemia is the most common pediatric malignancy. Recent studies have suggested that DADS can induce apoptosis in human leukemia cells, but its mechanisms remain unclear. This study was to investigate the biological effects of DADS on the apoptosis of(More)
The laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) is an important approach of treating acute cholecystitis and the timing of performing this given treatment is associated with clinical outcomes. Although several meta-analyses have been done to investigate the optimal timing of implementing this treatment, the conflicting findings from these meta-analyses still confuse(More)
Hepatic resection has been increasingly performed in patients with Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) stage B hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the current evidence supporting its efficacy remains controversial. The aim of this systematic review was to investigate the long-term survival and safety of hepatic resection compared to transarterial(More)
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and antidepressant are the effective treatment alternatives for patients with treatment-resistant depression (TRD); however, the effects and safety of the ECT plus antidepressant relative to ECT alone remain controversial. We decide to assess the potential of ECT plus antidepressant compared with ECT alone by undertaking an(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinicopathological features and prognostic factors of primary clear cell carcinoma of the liver (PCCCL). METHODS The clinical data of 41 PCCCL patients who underwent hepatic resection for PCCCL from October 1998 to June 2012 in our department were retrospectively analyzed. There were 31 male and 10 female patients. The median(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a common cancer in China, an area of high hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Although several staging systems are available, there is no consensus on the best classification to use because multiple factors, such as etiology, clinical treatment and populations could affect the survival of HCC patients.
