miRNAs are involved in cancer development and progression, acting as tumor suppressors or oncogenes. In this study, miRNA profiling was conducted on 10 paired bladder cancer tissues using 20 GeneChip miRNA Array, and 10 differentially expressed miRNAs were identified in bladder cancer and adjacent noncancerous tissues of any disease stage/grade. After being(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to create a simple model for teaching laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) for duplicating the blood supply setting and main technical points of the procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS A fresh porcine kidney was placed on an unfolded metallic box to help trainees observe, practice, and develop LPN skills in both tumor(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the efficacy of a novel catheter with a trefoil profile to decrease urothelial irritation and delay catheter associated urinary tract infections by comparing it with a conventional catheter in the rabbit model. MATERIALS AND METHODS A novel catheter was made of medical silicone with a trefoil profile design. A total of 66 male New(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate a combined analysis approach that involves cytologic evaluation and fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis (FISH) for detecting urothelial carcinoma (UC) in the upper tract (UT). METHODS By refining the UroVysion positive criteria, an analyzing modality (Cyto-FISH) combined urine cytology and FISH analysis (UroVysion probe set)(More)
BACKGROUND Single-port laparoscopy (SPL) requires specialized skills; however, there are currently no specialized training courses for SPL. The aim of this study is to present an effective specialized training course of basic skills for SPL. METHODS We designed a specialized training course for single-port laparoscopic basic skills. The study included 10(More)
XB130 is a cytosolic adaptor protein involved in various physiological processes and oncogenesis of certain malignancies, but its role in the development of prostate cancer remains unclear. In current study, we examined XB130 expression in prostate cancer tissues and found that XB130 expression was remarkably increased in prostate cancer tissues and(More)
The present study aimed to determine whether actinomycin X2 (AX2) intercepted the mTOR/PTEN/PI3K/Akt signaling pathway to inhibit human prostate cancer cells (PC-3) in vitro. The effects of AX2 on mTOR, PTEN, PI3K, and Akt at the protein level and mRNA were determined by western blotting and real-time reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR), respectively.(More)
Bladder cancer is still a common malignancy of the urinary tract due to the high metastasis rate and unexpected side effects of drug treatments. The acidic environment of the urinary bladder also strongly limits the efficacy of the chemotherapeutic agents during the treatment of bladder cancer. In this study, a series of selenadiazole derivatives (SeDs)(More)
