AIM An epidemiological study was conducted based on an esophageal cancer patient's cohort to investigate the association of folate intake and MTHFR C677T polymorphism with the prognosis of esophageal cancer in a Chinese population. METHODS 167 patients aged 37-75 years who had histological confirmed diagnosis of esophageal squamous cell cancer were(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the correlation between the expression levels of excision repair cross complementing 1 (ERCC1), thymidylate synthase (TYMS), class III β-tubulin (TUBB3), ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase (RRM1) and topoisomerase IIα (TOP2A) with the clinical characteristics of patients with esophageal squamous cell(More)
INTRODUCTION There have been no reports in the literature of esophageal rupture in adults resulting from an explosion of an automobile tire. We report the first case of just such an occurrence after an individual bit into a tire, causing it to explode in his mouth. CASE PRESENTATION A 47-year-old Han Chinese man presented with massive hemorrhage in his(More)
This study compared the efficacy of iodine-125 seed brachytherapy versus the conventional radiotherapy in patients with non-resectable stage III/IV non-small cell lung cancer. A total of 71 patients with inoperable advanced stages of lung cancer with tumor size ranging 5-10 cm were randomly assigned into two groups: Group A received the regional iodine-125(More)
PURPOSE Here we aimed to explore the possible mechanism and potential regulatory relationships in which the non.small.cell lung cancer. (NSCLC)-resisted epidermal growth factor receptor. (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor erlotinib. MATERIALS AND METHODS GSE38310, the gene expression profiles of NSCLC cell lines treated with dimethylsulfoxide or erlotinib,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE 125I seed implantation treatment of pulmonary metastases, often because of complicated structure of the chest, was considered as restricted areas. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of CT guided radioactive 125I seed implantation in treating lung metastatic tumors. METHODS Totally 115 metastatic masses were(More)
Esophageal cancer is the sixth most common cancer worldwide in 2002 (Blount et al., 2007). Its rates showed a wide international geographic variation in the incidence and mortality of esophageal cancer (Choi and Mason, 2000; Kim, 2004; Blount et al., 2007), suggesting that the role of genetic and environmental factors in the pathogenesis of this cancer(More)
BACKGROUND Recurrent or metastatic lung cancer is difficult to manage. This retrospective study aimed to assess the efficacy of repeated iodine-125 seed implantations combined with external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) for locally recurrent or metastatic stage-III/IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS Eighteen previously treated stage-III/IV NSCLC(More)
BACKGROUND Chylothorax is a pathologic condition defined by an accumulation of lymphatic fluid, the chyle, in the thorax. Postoperative chylothorax is a potentially lethal complication, with a reported mortality rate of 15.4%-25%. PATIENTS AND METHODS Esophageal cancer patients hospitalized for elective radical esophagectomy by thoracotomy (n = 10,574)(More)
