Many types of cancer have high antioxidant capacity that effectively scavenges reactive oxygen species and thus protect cancer cells against oxidative damage. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of 20 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 20 oxidative stress-related genes on clinical outcome in 219 patients with advanced non-small cell lung(More)
Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) is frequently upregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Blockage of mTOR was found to induce marked reduction in HCC growth in preclinical models. In the present study, we tested a novel mTOR inhibitor, Torin-2, for its antitumor efficacy in HCC cell lines Hep G2, SNU-182 and Hep 3B2.1-7. The HCC cell lines were(More)
MicroRNA (miRNA)-25 is a small non-coding RNA that has been implicated in the tumorigenesis of many cancers, but little is known on the role of miR-25 in HCC metastasis. We hereby found that miR-25 was significantly upregulated in clinical HCC tissues compared with normal liver tissues. We also revealed that miR-25 dramatically stimulates HCC cell growth(More)
