OBJECTIVE Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients with truly chemosensitive disease still represent a minority among all TNBC patients. The aim of the present study is to identify microRNAs (miRNAs) that correlate with TNBC chemoresistance. METHODS In this study, we conducted miRNAs profile comparison between triple-negative breast cancer (TNBCs)(More)
OBJECTIVE To monitor the changes of plasma asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), nitric oxide (NO), and von Willebrand factor (vWF) levels in patients with stable angina pectoris (SAP) or acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and to evaluate the correlation between ADMA and different types of coronary heart disease. METHODS A total of 143 subjects were divided into(More)
PURPOSE S100B is member of a multigenic family of Ca(2+)-binding proteins, which is overexpressed by gliomas. Recently, we showed that low concentrations of S100B attenuated microglia activation through the induction of Stat3. We hypothesized that overexpression of S100B in gliomas could promote tumor growth by modulating the activity of tumor-associated(More)
Interaction of RAGE (the receptor for advanced glycation endproducts) with its ligands can promote tumor progression, invasion, and angiogenesis. Although blocking RAGE signaling has been proposed as a potential anticancer strategy, functional contributions of RAGE expression in the tumor microenvironment (TME) have not been investigated in detail. Here, we(More)
ETS variant 1 (ETV1) and E3 ubiquitin ligase constitutive photomorphogenetic 1 (COP1) have been proposed to be a pair of oncogene and tumor suppressor. However, the co-existing status of ETV1 and COP1 in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and their predictive role in determining the patient’s outcome are uncertain. We examined the abundance of COP1 and(More)
Many epidemiologic studies have investigated the plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) gene 4G/5G polymorphism and this association with coronary artery disease (CAD). But definite conclusions can not be drawn. Related studies were identified from PubMed, Springer Link, Ovid, Chinese Wanfang Data Knowledge Service Platform, Chinese National Knowledge(More)
Even when treated with aggressive current therapies, most patients with glioblastoma survive less than two years. Rapid tumor growth, an invasive nature, and the blood-brain barrier, which limits the penetration of large molecules into the brain, all contribute to the poor tumor response associated with conventional therapies. Immunotherapy has emerged as a(More)
AIM RhoA is a critical factor in regulating the proliferation and migration of arterial smooth muscle cells (ASMCs) in patients with arteriosclerosis obliterans (ASO). RhoA is modulated by microRNA-133a (miR-133a) in cardiac myocytes and bronchial smooth muscle cells. However, the relationship between miR-133a and RhoA with respect to the onset of ASO in(More)
BACKGROUND Triptolide treatment leads to an improvement in Diabetic Cardiomyopathy (DCM) in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat model. DCM is characterized by abnormal cardiac energy metabolism. We hypothesized that triptolide ameliorated cardiac metabolic abnormalities in DCM. We proposed (31)P nuclear magnetic resonance ((31)P NMR) spectrometry method for(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate the molecular mechanism underlying the myeloperoxidase (MPO) induced apoptosis of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). METHODS HUVEC-12 cells were treated with myeloperoxidase at different concentrations (0.1 μ/ml, 0.2 μ/ml, 0.4 μ/ml and 0.6 μ/ml) and apoptotic cells were detected by flow cytometry.(More)
