Sushi repeat-containing protein X-linked 2 (SRPX2) is a novel chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan overexpressed in gastrointestinal cancer. Its role in tumor biology remains unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of SRPX2 in colorectal cancer and its potential association with cancer progression. The expression of SRPX2 and its(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been suggested to be biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis of sporadic colorectal cancer. This study aimed to characterize the expression profile of lncRNAs in DNA mismatch repair-proficient (pMMR) early-stage colon cancer (CC). The microsatellite instability (MSI) status was examined by a multiplex PCR. The expression of(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric duplication cysts are rare congenital abnormalities, and malignant transformation of these duplications is also thought to be rare. CASE PRESENTATION During a routine health checkup, a 28-year-old man underwent abdominal sonography followed by computed tomography (CT) with contrast agent, which revealed a cystic lesion with no(More)
A new class of multifunctional nanobubble using poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) has been developed as ultrasound imaging contrast agents, doxorubicin carriers, and enhancers of ultrasound-mediated drug delivery. The doxorubicin nanobubble (DOX-NB) wrapping carbon tetrafluoride gas was prepared with double emulsion method. We evaluated the enhanced(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM To evaluate the effectiveness of systematic training in the application of narrow-band imaging (NBI) International Colorectal Endoscopic (NICE) classification for the prediction of the histology of colorectal polyps. METHODS This is a single-center study. In total, 260 still images of colorectal polyps from 225 patients were included.(More)
BACKGROUND FOXJ1, which is a forkhead transcription factor, has been previously studied mostly as a ciliary transcription factor. The role of FOXJ1 in cancer progression is still elusive and controversial. In the present study, the effect of FOXJ1 in progression of colorectal cancer (CRC) was investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS The pattern of FOXJ1(More)
