Cytokine-induced killer cells (CIK cells) are a heterogeneous population of cells generated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells, which share phenotypic and functional properties with both natural killer and T cells. CIK cells therapy, as an adoptive immunotherapy with strong antitumor activity in vitro, represents a promising approach for the treatment(More)
Dickkopf-related protein 3 (DKK3) gene, as a tumor suppressor gene, has been discovered in various cancers, but its relationship with tumor chemoresistance is still unclear. In this study, this laboratory detected that DNA methylation contributes to the downregulation of DKK3 in docetaxel resistance of human lung cancer cells and its possible biochemical(More)
Adoptive cell immunotherapy with cytokine-induced killer cell (CIK cell) represents a promising non-toxic anticancer therapy. However, the clinical efficacy of CIK cells is limited because of abnormal tumor vasculature. Metronomic chemotherapy shows promising anticancer activity by its potential antiangiogenic effect and reduced toxicity. We hypothesized(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Accumulating evidence revealed that microRNAs (miRNAs) have been demonstrated as critical molecules in tumor development and progression. MiR-26a, located in a fragile chromosomal region associated with various human cancer, has been reported to be involved in regulating various cellular process, such as proliferation, apoptosis and invasion(More)
Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF) are recognized as one of the key determinants in the malignant progression of lung adenocarcinoma. And its contributions to chemoresistance acquisition of lung cancer has raised more and more attention. In our study, cancer associated fibroblasts treated with cisplatin conferred chemoresistance to lung cancer cells.(More)
Emerging evidence indicates that the dysregulation of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) contributes to the development and progression of lung adenocarcinoma (LAD), however the underlying mechanism of action of lncRNAs remains unclear. It is well known that the effective treatment of cancers has been hindered by drug resistance in the clinical setting.(More)
Fibroblasts in the tumor stroma are well recognized as having an indispensable role in carcinogenesis, including in the initiation of epithelial tumor formation. The association between cancer cells and fibroblasts has been highlighted in several previous studies. Regulation factors released from cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) into the tumor(More)
Tumor hypoxia is one of the important features of lung adenocarcinoma. Chemokines might mediate the effects caused by tumor hypoxia. As confirmed in tumor tissue and serum of patients, CC chemokine 28 (CCL28) was the only hypoxia induced chemokine in lung adenocarcinoma cells. CCL28 could promote tube formation, migration and proliferation of endothelial(More)
