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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Microglia (MG) and macrophages (MPs) represent a significant component of the inflammatory response to gliomas. When activated, MG/MP release a variety of pro-inflammatory cytokines, however, they also secrete anti-inflammatory factors that limit their cytotoxic function. The balance between pro and anti-inflammatory functions dictates their antitumor(More)

Purpose: S100B is member of a multigenic family of Ca 2þ-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)
