PURPOSE To investigate the levels for some specified microRNAs in human's peripheral blood so as to determine whether they can serve as biomarkers for metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer. METHODS Use a quantitative stem-loop RT-PCR method to examine the serum levels for certain microRNAs including has-miR-125a-5p, has-miR-126, has-miR-183, has-miR-200,(More)
BACKGROUND Sedentary behavior is ubiquitous in modern adults' daily lives and it has been suggested to be associated with incident cancer. However, the results have been inconsistent. In this study, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies to clarify the association between sedentary behavior and incident cancer. (More)
With enormous amounts of information injected into the Internet every second, manual maintenance of the knowledge base on the Internet is a hopeless task. A reasonable remedy for this problem is to create a " machine understandable " Internet. To achieve this, Heflin et al. proposed an HTML-based knowledge representation language called Simple HTML Ontology(More)
BACKGROUND Inflammatory response markers have been proposed to predict the clinical outcomes in various cancers. The aim of this study was to explore the influence of the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) on the prognosis of osteosarcoma. METHODS Three hundred fifty-nine patients who underwent curative surgery for(More)
Long noncoding RNAs have been documented as having widespread roles in carcinogenesis and cancer progression. However, roles of long noncoding RNAs in osteosarcoma remain unclear. This study is to investigate the clinical relevance and biological functions of long noncoding RNA 91H in osteosarcoma. Herein, we confirmed that 91H expression was notably(More)
Published evidence on the prognostic significance of lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is controversial. We performed an updated meta-analysis from 12 reports with 5021 patients to more accurately evaluate the prognostic value of LMR in DLBCL. Herein, we confirmed that patients with low LMR had shorter overall(More)
Several studies have indicated that overexpression of stomatin-like protein 2 (SLP-2) has been identified in several types of cancer. However, its role and clinical relevance in gallbladder cancer (GBC) is unknown. The purpose of this study was to reveal the prognostic significance of SLP-2 in GBC. The SLP-2 expression was examined at mRNA and protein(More)
Lamivudine is a potent nucleoside analogue used in treating chronic hepatitis B (CHB). However, resistance to the drug remains a problem. We analyzed all lamivudine recipients in this trial to determine the baseline characteristics and a model to predict early virological response reflecting the long-term effect of lamivudine. In this prospective trial, 230(More)
Porous anodic alumina membranes (AAMs) have attracted great amount of attention due to their potential application as templates for nanoengineering. Template-guided fabrication and assembly of nanomaterials based on AAMs are cost-effective and scalable methods to program and engineer the shape and morphology of nanostructures and nanomaterials. In this(More)
