The aim of this meta-analysis was to gather current data and evaluate not only the risk of gastrointestinal (GI) perforation with bevacizumab, but also the potential risk factors for this adverse event. We carried out a literature search in PubMed for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) reported from January 2000 to December 2013. Summary incidence,(More)
BACKGROUND Combining targeted therapy has been extensively investigated in previously treated advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but it is still unclear whether combining targeted therapy might offer any benefits against standard monotherapy with erlotinib. We thus performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to compare the efficacy(More)
Aflibercept, a fully humanized vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-targeted agent, has emerged as an effective therapy in the treatment of various solid tumors. We carried out an up-to-date meta-analysis to determine the risk of fatal adverse events (FAEs) in cancer patients treated with aflibercept. We searched databases such as PubMed and Web of(More)
BACKGROUND The significance of ezrin immunoexpression and prognosis for osteosarcoma is still controversial. The aim was to provide a meta-analysis for ezrin immunoexpression and prognostic features of osteosarcoma patients. METHODS A detailed search was made in MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Web of Knowledge for relevant original articles published in English;(More)
Inhibition of vascular epithelial growth factor (VEGF) signaling pathways has proven to be an effective strategy for the treatment of several common solid tumors, but its role in the management of advanced gastric cancer (AGC) is yet to be defined. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to assess the efficacy and safety of(More)
Krüppel-like factor 8 (KLF8) is a transcription factor that is important in the regulation of the cell cycle and has a critical role in oncogenic transformation and epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT). EMT is a key process in tumor metastasis. Although overexpression of KLF8 has been observed in a variety of human tumor types, the role of KLF8 in(More)
The prognosis for patients with relapsed/metastatic osteosarcoma is poor and the optimal treatment strategy remains to be refined. Whilst gemcitabine plus docetaxel combination treatment has already been demonstrated to have certain promising results in the treatment of osteosarcoma, the use of pemetrexed, a multi-targeted antifolate, remains controversial.(More)
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), such as body gamma knife, was reported to achieve excellent rates of local disease control with limited toxicity in many cases of primary or secondary pulmonary tumor, except osteosarcoma. To confirm the value of SRS in pulmonary metastases from osteosarcoma, we reviewed the experience from our institution (Department of(More)
