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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Non-small cell type lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common malignancy and the leading cause of cancer related mortality. In this study, serine/threonine kinase 39 (STK39) was identified as an up-regulated gene in NSCLC tissues by next-generation RNA sequencing. Although STK39 gene polymorphisms may be prognostic of overall survival in patients with early(More)
Lung cancer is the most frequent cancer in the world. Previous studies have shown that ubiquitin-specific protease 39 (USP39) is upregulated in several cancers and associated with tumor malignant characters. However, the effects of USP39 in lung cancer have not been well understood. In the present study, we found USP39 was generally expressed higher in(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was to define preoperative predictors from radiologic findings for the pathologic risk groups based on long-term surgical outcomes, in the aim to help guide individualized patient management. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 321 consecutive patients with clinical stage IA lung adenocarcinoma with ground glass component on computed(More)
Mitofusin-2 (MFN2) was initially identified as a hyperplasia suppressor in hyper-proliferative vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) of hypertensive rat arteries, which has also been implicated in various cancers. There exists a controversy in whether it is an oncogene or exerting anti-proliferative effect on tumor cells. Our previous cell cycle analysis and(More)
