Using DNA microarrays, we generated both mRNA and miRNA expression data from 6 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tissues and their matching normal control from adjacent tissues to identify potential miRNA markers for diagnostics. We demonstrated that hsa-miR-96 is significantly and consistently up-regulated in all 6 NSCLCs. We validated this result in an(More)
Monocytes and associated cytokines have been shown to be involved in the pathogenesis of ankylosing spondylitis (AS). T cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain 4 (Tim-4) was identified on monocytes/macrophages and dentritic cells (DCs) and plays important roles in regulating the activities of macrophages and DCs. The current study investigated the association(More)
Previous clinical studies have shown good efficacy of the traditional Chinese medicinal herbal water extract Chan-Yu-Bao-Yuan-Tang (CYBYT) in lung cancer patients. In this study, CYBYT's effects on proliferation and apoptosis of human lung adenocarcinoma cell line SPC-A-1 cultured in vitro were explored. An XTT assay, cell cycle analysis, Annexin V-FITC(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE It has been proven that the expression of ZO-1 (zonula occluden-1) was correlated with the growth and metastasis of cancer. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between ZO-1 gene expression and clinicopathologic parameters and the survival rates in the patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS(More)
Previous clinical studies have shown efficacy and safety of the traditional Chinese medicinal herb extract Chan-Yu-Bao-Yuan-Tang (CYBYT) in lung cancer patients. The effects of CYBYT on proliferation and apoptosis in the non-small cell lung cancer cell line NCI-H460 and the small cell lung cancer cell line NCI-H446 were investigated in vitro. CYBYT(More)
Lung cancer is a lethal solid tumor with poor prognosis because of its high metastasis and resistance to current therapies. Recently, cancer stem cells (CSCs) were suggested to be major contributors to tumorigenicity and cancer relapse. However, therapeutic targets for lung cancer-related CSCs remain undetermined. The objective of the current study was to(More)
