PURPOSE A prospective randomized trial was performed to evaluate the contribution of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma were treated either with radiotherapy alone (RT group) or neoadjuvant chemotherapy plus(More)
Repetitive synaptic stimulation in the stratum radiatum (SR) evokes large amplitude Ca2+ waves in the thick apical dendrites of hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons. These waves are initiated by activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs), which mobilize inositol-1,4,5-trisphospate (IP3) and release Ca2+ from intracellular stores. We explored(More)
PURPOSE Ezrin is a membrane cytoskeletal linker protein and it is known to be associated with metastasis of primary osteosarcoma. The aim of this study is to determine the relationship between an ezrin expression and several key clinical parameters and to elucidate its potential prognostic value for patients with osteosarcoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
PURPOSE An accurate and rational nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) stage based on images is proposed. METHODS AND MATERIALS Four hundred and twenty-one cases of NPC, treated in the Cancer Hospital, Sun Yat-sen University of Medical Sciences (SUMS), with computed tomography scanning before initial radiotherapy, are analyzed. Important prognostic factors that(More)
BACKGROUND Angiogenesis is essential for tumor growth and metastasis. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is the most potent angiogenic factor identified to date. The authors investigated the correlation between the levels of serum VEGF (S-VEGF) in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and disease progression. METHODS The sera from 65 male(More)
PURPOSE The 5th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging manual defines new rules for classifying nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). The study was conducted to assess its effectiveness in predicting the prognosis for Chinese patient populations. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between June 1993 and June 1994, 621 consecutively admitted patients(More)
Repetitive synaptic stimulation evokes large amplitude Ca(2+) release waves from internal stores in many kinds of pyramidal neurons. The waves result from mGluR mobilization of IP(3) leading to Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+) release. In most experiments in slices, regenerative Ca(2+) release can be evoked for only a few trials. We examined the conditions required(More)
PURPOSE The retrospective study was performed to assess the efficacy and toxicity profiles of sunitinib in Korean patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 2005 and December 2008, 76 Korean patients with recurrent/metastatic RCC who received sunitinib were retrospectively reviewed. The primary end point was(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to describe the efficacy and safety of sunitinib in unselected Korean advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS From November 2005 to August 2008, 132 histologically confirmed advanced RCC patients (100 in the global expanded access program) were enrolled. Response and toxicity were assessed regularly according(More)
We analyzed the natural history of advanced gastric cancer with sequential salvage chemotherapy following first-line treatment. We studied 532 patients with unresectable gastric adenocarcinoma who were treated at Yonsei Cancer Center (2000–2008). The patients were managed with multiple sequential salvage chemotherapy as allowed by performance status and(More)
