Vasculogenic mimicry (VM) is a brand-new tumour vascular paradigm independent of angiogenesis that describes the specific capacity of aggressive cancer cells to form vessel-like networks that provide adequate blood supply for tumour growth. A variety of molecule mechanisms and signal pathways participate in VM induction. Additionally, cancer stem cell and(More)
Galectin-3, a β-galactoside-binding lectin, is a cell adhesion molecule involved in the regulation of tumor progression. However, the importance of galectin-3 in Eca-109 human esophageal cancer cells has not yet been elucidated. In the present study, a lentiviral vector was designed for overexpression of galectin-3 in Eca-109 cells following(More)
Galectin-3 is a multifunctional β-galactoside‑binding lectin that is involved in multiple biological functions which are upregulated in malignancies, including cell growth, adhesion, proliferation, progression and metastasis, as well as apoptosis. A previous study has confirmed the roles of galecin-3 overexpression in the biological behavior of Eca109 human(More)
The aim of the present study was to compare the dosimetry features of volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and fixed field intensity‑modulated radiotherapy (f-IMRT) in postoperative irradiation of stage IB-IIA high‑risk cervical cancer. Fifteen patients exhibiting stage IB‑IIA high‑risk cervical cancer, who had been treated with postoperative adjuvant(More)
Vasculogenic mimicry (VM) is a vascular-like structure which can mimic the embryonic vascular network pattern to nourish the tumour tissue. As a unique perfusion way, VM is correlated with tumour progression, invasion, metastasis and lower 5-year survival rate. Notably, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) regulators and EMT-related transcription factors(More)
