AIMS To analyze the distribution of uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase (UGT)1A1 gene polymorphisms in Chinese patients with extensive-stage small-cell lung cancer (E-SCLC), and to evaluate correlations between the UGT1A1 gene polymorphisms and toxicity, and efficacy of irinotecan (CPT-11) based regimen in the patients with E-SCLC. METHODS The(More)
BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance (MR) molecular imaging can detect abnormalities associated with disease at the level of cell and molecule. The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) plays an important role in the development of lung cancer. This study aimed to explore new MR molecular imaging targeting of the EGFR on lung cancer cells. METHODS We attached(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) shows the highest invasive and metastatic features among head and neck cancers. Distant metastasis remains the predominant mode of treatment failure in NPC patients. The role of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in NPC progression is not fully understood. In this study, we explored whether IL-6 could promote the migration and invasion(More)
AIM To investigate the mechanisms underlying the anticancer effect of celecoxib on nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS NPC cell lines, HNE1 and CNE1-LMP1, were treated with various concentrations of celecoxib for 48 h. The antiproliferative effect of celecoxib was assessed using MTT assay. Both cell cycle profiles and apoptosis were analyzed using(More)
OBJECTIVES The primarily aim of this phase II study is to evaluate the response rate (RR) and disease control rate (DCR). The secondary aim of this study is to assess the progression-free survival and overall survival of recurrent or metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients treated with lobaplatin in combination with docetaxel. MATERIALS AND(More)
The actin binding protein CapG modulates cell motility by interacting with the cytoskeleton. CapG is associated with tumor progression in different nongynecologic tumor entities and overexpression in breast cancer cell lines correlates with a more invasive phenotype in vitro. Here, we report a significant CapG overexpression in 18/47 (38%) of ovarian(More)
The carboxyl terminus of heat shock cognate 70 interacting protein (CHIP) is an E3 ubiquitin ligase, which can promote ubiquitylation and degradation of many tumor-related proteins. However, the expression of CHIP in human gastric cancer has not been investigated. In this study, the mRNA and protein levels of (More)
An accurate definition of clinical target volume (CTV) is essential for the application of radiotherapy in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) treatment. A novel epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-targeting contrast agent (C225-USPIO) was designed by conjugating ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) nanoparticles with cetuximab (C225), to(More)
