Detection of human papillomavirus infection in squamous tumours of the conjunctiva and lacrimal sac by immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridisation, and polymerase chain reaction
BACKGROUND Squamous tumours of the ocular surface, including the lacrimal pathway, range from benign lesions to invasive carcinomas. Some of these tumours are associated with human papillomavirusExpand

E-cadherin expression associated with differentiation and prognosis in patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
BACKGROUND E-Cadherin plays a major role in maintaining the intercellular junctions in epithelial tissues. The reduction of E-cadherin expression in cancer cells may be associated with tumorExpand

Clinical application of biological markers for treatments of resectable non-small-cell lung cancers
We performed a clinical study to identify biological markers useful for the treatment of resectable non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs). In all, 173 patients were studied. By immunohistochemistry,Expand

The tumour–stromal interaction between intratumoral c-Met and stromal hepatocyte growth factor associated with tumour growth and prognosis in non-small-cell lung cancer patients
Immunohistochemical analyses of the effects of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and c-Met expression on tumour growth and angiogenesis were performed on 88 patients with non-small-cell lung cancersExpand

Reduced ING1b gene expression plays an important role in carcinogenesis of non-small cell lung cancer patients.
PURPOSE We performed a clinical study on ING1b gene expression and p53 gene status in relation to p53 target genes. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Eighty-eight tumors from surgically treated non-small cellExpand

Postrecurrence survival in patients with stage I non-small cell lung cancer.
OBJECTIVE Postoperative recurrence is a major obstacle to achieving a cure and long-term survival in patients with non-small lung cancer. However, prognostic factors and the efficacy of therapy afterExpand

Comparative study of Tc-99m MIBI and TI-201 SPECT in predicting chemotherapeutic response in non-small-cell lung cancer.
PURPOSE Tc-99m MIBI can be excluded from cytosol against its concentration gradient as a suitable transport substrate by P-glycoprotein. Tc-99m MIBI has also been shown to be more effective thanExpand

Clinical analysis of interstitial pneumonia after surgery for lung cancer.
OBJECTIVE The postoperative development or exacerbation of interstitial pneumonia (IP) in lung cancer patients often affects prognoses. We analyzed the patients who suffered from IP after surgery, toExpand
