Afatinib is the second generation of irreversible inhibitor of EGFR, HER2 and HER4, which has shown encouraging phase II and III clinical outcomes in the treatment of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). However, the molecular mechanism of afatinib-induced apoptosis in HNSCC is poorly understood. In the present investigation, we discovered that(More)
The involvement of human papillomavirus (HPV) in skin carcinogenesis in a patient with epidermodysplasia verruciformis was studied. This patient had disseminated pityriasis versicolor-like lesions, flat warts, and a malignant skin carcinoma. HPV types 3, 17, 20 (HPV-20), and 38 were isolated and molecularly cloned from the benign skin lesions of this(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs of approximately 22 nucleotides that negatively regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. Downexpression of miR-140-5p was reported in some human cancers, and combined with a reduction of cell migration and invasion, suggesting that miR-140-5p functions as a tumor suppressor. However, little is(More)
AIMS To explore the contribution of islet autoimmunity and genetic mutations in Chinese patients initially thought to have Type 1B diabetes. METHODS A group of 33 Chinese patients with newly diagnosed Type 1B diabetes, were identified by the absence of autoantibodies to glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), IA-2, insulin, thyroid globulin or thyroid(More)
miRNAs (microRNAs) are frequently and aberrantly expressed in many cancers. MiR-873 has been revealed to be downregulated in colorectal cancer and glioblastoma. However, its function remains unclear. Here we report that miR-873 is downregulated in breast tumor compared with normal tissue. Enforced expression of miR-873 decreases the transcriptional activity(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression of miR-140-5p and ADAM10 in hypopharyngeal carcinoma tissues and their effects on the migration and invasion of FaDu cells and underlying mechanism. METHODS The miR-140-5p and ADAM10 mRNA levels in 33 cases of hypopharyngeal carcinoma tissues and adjacent normal tissues were measured by real-time quantitative(More)
Certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV), such as types 16 and 18, are etiological agents for carcinogenesis of the uterine cervix. These HPVs have two oncogenes, E6 and E7, that have transforming activities in established murine cells. Tumorigenicity and decreased serum requirement for cell growth are conferred by the E6 gene, whereas(More)
T4-binding globulin (TBG) is the major thyroid hormone transport protein in humans. Inherited abnormalities in the level of serum TBG have been classified as partial deficiency, complete deficiency and excess. A single nucleotide deletion or substitution in the TBG gene, located on Xq22, has been detected in partial and complete deficiencies. As for(More)
