The clinical characteristics and prognosis remain unclear for nasal-type NK/T-cell lymphoma of Waldeyer ring (WR-NKTL). The aim of this study is to determine the clinical features and outcome. Ninety-one patients with WR-NKTL were reviewed. According to the Ann Arbor system, 15, 56, 12, and 8 patients had stage I, II, III, and IV. Of patients with stage I(More)
MOTIVATION Drug-induced toxicity related proteins (DITRPs) are proteins that mediate adverse drug reactions (ADRs) or toxicities through their binding to drugs or reactive metabolites. Collection of these proteins facilitates better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of drug-induced toxicity and the rational drug discovery. Drug-induced toxicity(More)
Wnt signalling through β-catenin and the lymphoid-enhancing factor 1/T-cell factor (LEF1/TCF) family of transcription factors maintains stem cell properties in both normal and malignant tissues; however, the underlying molecular pathway involved in this process has not been completely defined. Using a microRNA microarray screening assay, we identified let-7(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the pathogenic causes of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in adult patients in China, the relation of previous antibiotic use and the Pneumonia Patient Outcome Research Team (PORT) classification to microbial etiology, and the prevalence of drug resistance of common CAP bacteria. METHODS A prospective study was performed on 665(More)
PURPOSE This study aims to evaluate the outcome and pattern of failure in a large cohort of patients with Stage I NK/T-cell lymphoma of the upper aerodigestive tract treated with radiotherapy alone. METHODS AND MATERIALS The pathological diagnosis was confirmed using standard criteria. All patients were treated with high-dose extended-field radiotherapy(More)
Extranodal nasal-type natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma is rarely observed in children and adolescents. We aim to investigate the clinical features, prognosis, and treatment outcomes in these patients. Thirty-seven patients were reviewed. There were 19, 14, 2, and 2 patients with stage I, stage II, stage III, and stage IV diseases, respectively. Among the(More)
PURPOSE The value of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for early-stage nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma has not been previously reported. The aim of the present study was to assess the dosimetric parameters, toxicity, and treatment outcomes of patients with nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 2003 and 2008, 42 patients with early-stage(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the failure patterns and clinical implications in patients with early stage nasal natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma treated with primary radiotherapy. METHODS Two-hundred fourteen patients were included. There were 182 cases of stage I and 32 cases of stage II disease. Patients received radiotherapy alone (n = 96)(More)
The clinical value of plasma Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA has not been evaluated in patients with early-stage extranodal nasal-type NK/T-cell lymphoma (NKTCL) receiving primary radiotherapy. Fifty-eight patients with stage I disease and 11 with stage II disease were recruited. High pretreatment EBV-DNA concentrations were associated with B-symptoms,(More)
PURPOSE To determine the clinical characteristics, prognosis, and treatment outcome for patients with nasal natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma (N-NKTL) and Waldeyer ring NK/T-cell lymphoma (WR-NKTL). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN A total of 145 patients with N-NKTL and 95 patients with WR-NKTL were compared. RESULTS Compared with N-NKTL, WR-NKTL exhibited(More)
