miRNAs are a class of small-noncoding RNAs capable of negatively regulating gene expression. Here, we found that miR-195 is down-regulated in human bladder cancer tissue versus normal adjacent tissue. To better characterize the role of miR-195 in bladder cancer, we conducted gain of function analysis by transfecting bladder cancer cell line T24 with(More)
Epidemiologic studies have reported conflicting results relating alcohol intake to bladder cancer risk. A meta-analysis of cohort and case–control studies was conducted to pool the risk estimates of the association between alcohol intake and bladder cancer. Eligible studies were retrieved via both computer searches and review of references. We analyzed(More)
Resveratrol has been shown to possess multiple pharmacological activities including anti-tumor, anti-inflammation and immunomodulation, and participates in the regulation of the NF-kappaB signaling pathway. However, the mechanism of the NF-kappaB signaling pathway inhibited by resveratrol remains obscure. In this study, we first examined the effect of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationship between cruciferous vegetables intake and risk of prostate cancer. METHODS A systematic literature search up to June 2011 was carried out in PubMed, and the references of retrieved articles were screened. The summary relative risks with 95% confidence interval for the highest versus the lowest intake of cruciferous(More)
It is increasingly clear that microRNAs play a crucial role in tumorigenesis. Recently, emerging evidence suggested that miR-26a is aberrantly expressed in tumor tissues. In our study, frequent down-regulation of miR-26a was observed in 10 human bladder cancer tissues. Forced expression of miR-26a in the bladder cancer cell line T24 inhibited cell(More)
MiR-375 has been identified as oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes which has the potential to the development and growth of cancers. However, the limited information concerning the expression and role of miR-375 in colorectal cancer (CRC) is available. In this work, we provide evidence for a function of miR-375 in the inhibition of CRC proliferation. Here,(More)
Renal angiomyolipoma (AML) is the most common type of benign mesenchymal tumor of the kidney. AMLs typically present as benign lesions without local invasion. However, the tumor may exhibit aggressive behavior. Intravascular extension into the inferior vena cava (IVC) and hemorrhagic aneurysm formation associated with AML has rarely been reported in the(More)
BACKGROUND Tea consumption has been reported to be associated with an decreased risk of several types of cancers. However, the results based on epidemiological studies on the association of tea consumption with bladder cancer were inconsistent. This meta-analysis was undertaken to evaluate the relationship between tea consumption and bladder cancer risk. (More)
OBJECTIVE Genetic variants of vitamin D receptor (VDR) were implicated in urolithiasis susceptibility in several case-control studies. However, these studies so far have provided conflicting results. In order to investigate the potential relationship, a meta-analysis was conducted. METHODS Eligible studies were retrieved via both computerized searches and(More)
This meta-analysis of cohort and case–control studies was undertaken to evaluate the relationship between cruciferous vegetables intake and risk of bladder cancer. Eligible studies were retrieved via both computer searches and review of references. The summary relative risks (RRs) with 95% confidence interval (CI) for the highest versus the lowest intake of(More)
