BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate prognostic value of excision repair cross-complementing 1 (ERCC1), BCL2-associated athanogene (BAG-1), the breast and ovarian cancer susceptibility gene 1 (BRCA1), ribonucleotide reductase subunit M1 (RRM1) and class III β-tubulin (TUBB3) in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who received(More)
BACKGROUND Many studies have investigated the prognostic role of E-cadherin in patients with NSCLC; however, the result still remains inconclusive. An up-to data system review and meta-analysis was necessary to give a comprehensive evaluation of prognostic role of E-cadherin in NSCLC. METHODS Eligible studies were searched in Pubmed, Embase and Web of(More)
Gene expression microarrays are widely used to investigate molecular targets in cancers, including lung cancer. In this study, we analyzed online non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) microarray databases, to screen the key genes and pathways related to NSCLC by bioinformatics analyses. And then, the expression levels of two selected genes in the(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the high risk factors for severe hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD). MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective 229 severe HFMD cases from four hospitals in FuYang, HeFei, and BoZhou (Anhui Provincial Hospital, Fuyang City People's Hospital, No. 2 People's Hospital of Fuyang and Bozhou city People's Hospital) in(More)
BACKGROUND The association between the Val158Met polymorphism in the catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene and lung cancer risk remains controversial and inconclusive. Therefore, the meta-analysis was performed to provide a quality reevaluation of the association between the COMT Val158Met polymorphism and the risk of lung cancer. METHODS Two major(More)
Fungal sellar abscess is rare. A 42-year-old man was admitted with 2-month headache characterized by right peri-orbital pain. An intrasellar mass was found to be simulated a pituitary neoplasm after magnetic resonance imaging examination, and operated on via an endoscopic trans-sphenoidal approach. Milk-like pus and a mass of ash black mixed and necrotic(More)
Available epidemiological studies had estimated the correlation between glutathione S-transferases P1 (GSTP1) Ile105Val polymorphism and esophageal cancer (EC) risk. However, the conclusions were controversial and inconclusive. An updated meta-analysis was conducted to explore whether GSTP1 polymorphism could be contributed to the EC risk. Ultimately, a(More)
