Aberrant arachidonic acid metabolism by cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 and 12-lipoxygenase (LOX) has implicated in carcinogenesis. Genetic polymorphisms in COX-2 and 12-LOX might therefore affect susceptibility to colorectal cancer (CRC). To examine this hypothesis, genotypes of COX-2 -1290A>G, -1195G>A, -765G>C and 12-LOX 261Arg>Gln polymorphisms were determined(More)
Polymorphic cytochrome P4502E1 (CYP2E1) plays an important role in the metabolic activation of many carcinogens. We have previously shown that the c1/c1 genotype recognized byRsa I in the 5′-regulatory region of theCYP2E1 may be a susceptibility factor for developing esophageal cancer and lung cancer in Chinese. The present study was to investigate the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of CCL20/CCR6/Th17 axis in vascular invasion and metastasis of primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS Expression levels of CCL20 mRNA in the normal human liver cell line L-02, and human hepatocellular carcinoma cell lines Hep3B, Huh7 and HepG2 were quantified by using SYBR green real time PCR. CCL20 secretions(More)
For successful therapy, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) must be detected at an early stage. Herein, we used a proteomic approach to analyze the secretory/releasing proteome of HCC tissues to identify plasma biomarkers. Serum-free conditioned media (CM) were collected from primary cultures of cancerous tissues and surrounding noncancerous tissues. Proteomic(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is usually presented in inflamed fibrotic/cirrhotic liver with extensive lymphocyte infiltration. We examined the associations between the HCC early recurrence and alterations in serum levels of inflammatory cytokines. METHODS A cohort of 105 HCC patients with chronic hepatitis B virus infection(More)
During the past decade, more than 10 targetable oncogenic driver genes have been validated in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) and ROS1 kinase are two new driver genes implicated in ALK- and ROS1-rearranged NSCLC. Inhibition of ALK and ROS1 by crizotinib has been reported to be highly effective and well tolerated in these(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most deadly tumors. Prognosis of patients with HCC is generally poor due to the high recurrence rate. In the present study, TaqMan Real-time PCR microRNA Array was used to identify differentially expressed miRNAs from 10 tumor tissue samples (5 from recurrence group vs. 5 from non-recurrence group) and the(More)
BACKGROUND Although radiotherapy (RT) provides potential benefits for patients with hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) that are unsuitable for operation, the specific role of adjuvant RT in HCC after hepatectomy remains ill defined. The current study's aim was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of adjuvant RT for centrally located HCCs after narrow-margin(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the surgical risk, perioperative outcome and the response of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after preoperative transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE). METHODS A retrospective case-matched study was conducted to compare the characteristics and corresponding measures of patients in the preoperative TACE group and(More)
BACKGROUND Liquid-liquid extraction of Lonicera japonica and Artemisia annua (JQ) plays a significant role in manufacturing Reduning injection. Many process parameters may influence liquid-liquid extraction and cause fluctuations in product quality. OBJECTIVE To develop a near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy method for on-line monitoring of liquid-liquid(More)
