No clear consensus has been reached on the XPA gene rs1800975 polymorphism and lung cancer risk. We performed a meta-analysis in an effort to systematically explore the possible association. We conducted a computer retrieval of PubMed, Embase, Wanfang, China National Knowledge Infrastructure Platform, and VIP databases prior to November 2013. References of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of icotinib hydrochloride in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS A total of 89 patients with stage IIIB or IV NSCLC received icotinib at a dose of 125 mg administered 3 times a day. Icotinib treatment was continued until disease progression or development of unacceptable(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to explore the association between vitamin D receptor (VDR) genetic polymorphisms and platinum-based chemotherapy response as well as the prognosis of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in a Chinese cohort. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seven hundred fifty-five patients with advanced NSCLC (stage III [A + B] or stage IV) were(More)
Nijmegen Breakage Syndrome protein 1 (NBS1) is one of the most important DNA repair proteins playing important roles in maintaining the genomic stability of NDA. Previous studies regarding the association between NBS1 8360G>C (Glu185Gln) polymorphism and lung cancer reported conflicting results. To derive a more precise estimation of this association, a(More)
Although crizotinib has demonstrated promising efficacy and acceptable toxicity in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), the available evidence in Chinese populations is currently limited. This study compared the progression-free survival (PFS) of Chinese patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive, advanced lung(More)
Transmembrane protein 48 (TMEM48), localized to nuclear pore complexes (NPCs), has been reported crucial for NPC assembly. Alterations in NPC members have been reported in several malignancies. The present study was aimed to elucidate the expression and biological function of TMEM48 in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). Here, TMEM48 expression level was(More)
BACKGROUND Ground-glass nodules (GGNs), which are possible precursors of lung cancer, attract increasing attention. Many studies have attempted to identify the characteristic imaging features of GGNs for their qualitative diagnosis; however, the comprehension of GGNs remains controversial. We performed this study to identify imaging characteristics helpful(More)
No clear consensus has been reached on the NAD(P)H: quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1) gene C609T polymorphism and lung cancer risk. We performed a meta-analysis to summarize the possible association. We conducted a computer retrieval of PubMed and Embase databases prior to May 2013. References of retrieved articles were also screened. The fixed-effects model(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Erlotinib is a epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (EGFR-TKI). The standard dose is 150 mg/d. But some patients have to reduce the dose or stop treatment due to its side effects. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of erlotinib 100 mg on patients with advanced aden carcinoma lung(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer and remains the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3, subunit d (eIF3d) has been recognized recently in several human cancers. In this paper, we attempt to evaluate the functional role of eIF3d in NSCLC cells. Lentivirus-mediated(More)
