BACKGROUND Cancer stem cells (CSCs) possess the characteristics associated with normal stem cells and are responsible for cancer initiation, recurrence, and metastasis. CD133 is regarded as a CSCs marker of osteosarcoma, which is the most common primary bone malignancy in childhood and adolescence. Salinomycin, a polyether ionophore antibiotic, has been(More)
Development of tissue structure and three-dimensional microenvironment is crucial for regeneration of axons in the peripheral nerve repair. In this study we aimed to evaluate the efficacy of nerve regeneration by using an acellular nerve allograft (ANA) injected with allogenic skin-derived precursor differentiated Schwann cells (SKP-SCs) and heregulin-1β.(More)
Approximately 30%-50% of colorectal cancers (CRCs) harbor the somatic mutated KRAS gene. KRAS G12V, one of the most common KRAS mutations in CRCs, is linked to increased tumor aggressiveness, less response to anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) therapy, and poor survival rate. In this study, we sought to determine whether resistance to EGFR(More)
