Retinoic acid-related orphan receptor C isoform 2 (RORC2) is regarded as a pathogenic factor for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and tumours. Previous studies have primarily focused on RORC2 expression in IL-17-producing immune cells but not in carcinoma cells; thus, little is known about the roles of RORC2 in the progression of human non-small cell(More)
Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays a vital role in lung inflammatory diseases, including lung cancer. However, the role and mechanism of action of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-17 in EMT in lung adenocarcinoma remain unresolved. In our study, we discovered that the expression of N-cadherin, Vimentin, Snail1, Snail2, and Twist1 was positively(More)
Inflammation and angiogenesis are two hallmarks of carcinoma. The proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-17 (IL-17) facilitates angiogenesis in lung cancer; however, the underlying mechanism is not fully understood. In this study, tumour microvessel density (MVD) was positively associated with IL-17, interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-8 (IL-8), and vascular(More)
Interleukin-17 receptor (IL-17RA) is essential for proinflammatory cytokine IL-17-mediated pathogenesis of various tumors. IL-17RA is upregulated by some proinflammatory cytokines such as IL-21 and IL-15 and downregulated by IL-2, while the effect of IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, TNF-α on IL-17RA expression in non-small cell lung caner (NSCLC) remains unknown. Our(More)
Cancer remains one of the most common causes of death and disability and represents a major economic burden in industrialized nations. The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has been well-recognized as one of the most important regulators of both normal and pathological physiological processes in the brain, kidney, heart, and blood vessels. The activation of(More)
Interleukin (IL)-36RN, previously known as IL1-F5 and IL-1δ, shares a 360-kb region of chromosome 2q13 with members of IL-1 systems. IL-36RN encodes an anti-inflammatory cytokine, IL-36 receptor antagonist (IL-36Ra). In spite of IL-36Ra showing the highest homology to IL-1 receptor (IL-1R) antagonist, it differs from the latter in aspects including its(More)
BACKGROUND Lactare dehydrogenase (LDH) has been proven to be a prognostic and a potential pro-tumor factor in patients with lung cancer. But the prognostic value of serum LDH in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) has not been quantified systematically. OBJECTIVE Thus, this study was to evaluate the correlations between serum LDH and overall survival of SLCLC(More)
Tumour-associated inflammation is a hallmark of malignant carcinomas, and lung cancer is a typical inflammation-associated carcinoma. Interleukin-17 (IL-17) is an important inflammatory cytokine that plays an important role in chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases and in inflammation-associated tumours. Numerous studies have shown that IL-17 directly(More)
