BACKGROUND MicroRNA-221 (miR-221) has been shown to play an important role in cancer prognosis. In order to evaluate the predictive value of miR-221, we compiled the evidence from 20 eligible studies to perform a meta-analysis. DESIGN All of relevant studies were identified by searching PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science, and were assessed by further(More)
OBJECTIVE MicroRNA-205 (miRNA-205) was revealed as an attractive prognostic tumour biomarker in recent studies. However, the results of different studies have been inconsistent. We conducted a meta-analysis to elucidate the precise predictive value of miRNA-205 in various human malignant neoplasms. DESIGN Meta-analysis. DATA SOURCES Qualified studies(More)
To investigate the correlation between parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP), erythropoietin (EPO), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). Immunohistochemical studies on PTHrP, EPO and VEGF were performed in 249 patients with ccRCC. Serum calcium level and haematocrit were analyzed. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate firstly the relationship between semenogelin I (Sg I) expression and seminal vesiculitis. Seminal vesiculitis is one of the most common diseases in male urogenital system. However, the cause and the pathogenesis of seminal vesiculitis remain unknown. Sg I, mainly synthesized and secreted by seminal vesicle, is abundant in human(More)
BACKGROUND Delayed first medical consultation (patient's delay) is quite common in cases of penile carcinoma (PC), but its reasons and impacts remain unclear. We conducted this study to ascertain risk factors resulting in delayed treatment seeking and evaluate its influence on prognosis. METHODS From 2004 to 2010 at 4 centers, 254 patients were enrolled(More)
BACKGROUND The AZFc deletion has been associated with wide range of phenotypes including complete absence of germ cells in the testes (SCOS), reduction in germ cells hypospermatogenesis, and maturation arrest. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between AZFc microdeletions and testicular histology in South Chinese men with(More)
Previous studies have indicated that miR-200c is a promising cancer biomarker. However, different studies have presented conflicting results. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to perform a meta‑analysis of miR‑200c based on 34 relevant studies. The Materials and methods sections of papers were carefully identified using the databases PubMed, Web(More)
