MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenously small non-coding RNAs which are key post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression. Deregulation of miRNAs is common in human tumorigenesis. We report that miRNA-205 is significantly down-regulated in glioma cell lines and tissue specimens. Ectopic expression of miRNA-205 induces(More)
BACKGROUND Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is an aggressive extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma limited to the CNS. Treatment of PCNSL with high-dose methotrexate (HD-MTX)-based chemotherapy and whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) is associated with high rates of relapse and severe treatment-related neurotoxicity. AIM To report our experience of(More)
UNLABELLED This study examined the value of a novel 1-step labeled integrin α(v)β3-targeting (18)F-AlF-NOTA-PRGD2 (denoted as (18)F-RGD) scan in assessing sensitivity to concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). METHODS Twenty-five patients with newly diagnosed GBM were enrolled in this study 3-5(More)
BACKGROUND Brain metastases (BMs) occur in up to 40% of patients with nonsmall-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). When surgery or radiosurgery is not possible, whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) is the standard treatment, with a cerebral response rate of approximately 30%. Pemetrexed-based chemotherapy presents an approximately 40% response rate on brain lesions of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the alteration of T-lymphocyte subsets and NK activity in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of pharynx and larynx. METHOD T-lymphocyte subsets and NK activity were determined by flow cytometry in 123 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of pharynx and larynx. Blood samples of 36 nontumor patients were used as control. (More)
OBJECTIVE We report 18 cases of facial nerve schwannomas in which stripping surgery was attempted to preserve facial nerve integrity and favorable facial nerve function. METHODS We attempted stripping surgery on 18 cases of facial nerve schwannomas. Postoperative facial nerve function was evaluated. RESULTS Stripping surgery was successfully achieved in(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the efficacy and safety of pemetrexed in the treatment of relapsed primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). METHODS Seven cases with relapsed PCNSL admitted in our hospital between August 2012 and August 2013 were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS Of the 7 relapsed cases, ectopic recurrence occurred in 3, in situ recurrence(More)
