The detection of occult metastatic breast cancer cells by RT-PCR is limited by the poor specificity of most tumour mRNA markers. MAGE-A3 is a highly specific tumour mRNA marker that is not expressed in non-cancer cells. This study assesses MAGE-A3 mRNA as a molecular marker for the detection of tumour cells in the sentinel lymph nodes (SLN) of breast cancer(More)
OBJECTIVE Tongxinluo (TXL) has been shown to decrease myocardial necrosis after ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) by simulating ischemia preconditioning (IPC). However, the core mechanism of TXL remains unclear. This study was designed to investigate the key targets of TXL against I/R injury (IRI) among the cardiac structure-function network.

BACKGROUND Cisplatin-based chemotherapy is the standard first-line treatment for non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs); however, the long-term therapeutic effect is reduced by chemoresistance. Brain and reproductive organ-expressed (BRE) proteins are overexpressed in several cancers and have an anti-apoptotic function. However, their biological role in the(More)
