IL-17 induces AKT-dependent IL-6/JAK2/STAT3 activation and tumor progression in hepatocellular carcinoma
BackgroundThe Th17 subset and IL-17 have been found in increased frequencies within certain tumors. However, their relevance in cancer biology remains controversial. This study aimed to clarify the… Expand

BACKGROUND A circular muscle myotomy preserving the longitudinal outer esophageal muscular layer is often recommended during peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) for achalasia. However, because the… Expand
Long-term outcomes of peroral endoscopic myotomy for achalasia in pediatric patients: a prospective, single-center study.
BACKGROUND Peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) has been developed to provide a less-invasive myotomy for achalasia in adults but seldom has been used in pediatric patients. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the… Expand
Submucosal tumors of the esophagogastric junction originating from the muscularis propria layer: a large study of endoscopic submucosal dissection (with video).
BACKGROUND Given the high morbidity and mortality rates for surgery and the diminishment of quality of life caused by operative resection of the gastric cardia, a minor invasive treatment without… Expand

- 28 October 2012
AIM To evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for foregut neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). METHODS From April 2008 to December 2010, patients with confirmed… Expand
Management of the complications of submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection for upper gastrointestinal submucosal tumors.
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection (STER) has become a potential option for the endoscopic treatment of a selected group of patients with submucosal tumors (SMTs)… Expand
Submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection for submucosal tumors of the esophagogastric junction originating from the muscularis propria layer: a feasibility study (with videos)
AbstractBackground The esophagogastric junction (EGJ) is a difficult location for endoscopic resection due to its narrow lumen and sharp angle. Potential increased risks of perforation and… Expand
Activation of PI3K/AKT and MAPK Pathway through a PDGFRβ-Dependent Feedback Loop Is Involved in Rapamycin Resistance in Hepatocellular Carcinoma
Background Rapamycin is an attractive approach for the treatment and prevention of HCC recurrence after liver transplantation. However, the objective response rates of rapamycin achieved with… Expand
Overexpression of CD151 as an adverse marker for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma patients
Previous studies have indicated that CD151, a hydrophobic protein, forms a functional complex with the proto‐oncogene that encodes an N‐methyl‐N′‐nitro‐N‐nitroso‐guanidine (MET) protein (c‐Met), and… Expand
Diagnostic efficacy of endoscopic ultrasound-guided needle sampling for upper gastrointestinal subepithelial lesions: a meta-analysis
BackgroundAn increasing number of studies have been conducted on the use of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided needle sampling for upper gastrointestinal subepithelial lesions (SEL). However,… Expand
