X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 (XRCC1) is a major DNA repair protein in the base excision repair pathway. XRCC1 rs3213245 is a functional polymorphism in the XRCC1 gene promoter region which results in decreased DNA repair capacity. Previous studies investigating the association of XRCC1 rs3213245 polymorphism with lung cancer risk reported(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Surgical resection is the preferred treatment in selected patients with pulmonary neoplasms. In older than 70 years or have compromised cardiopulmonary status or coexistent medical problems patients, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) may offer an alternative option. The aim of this study is to evaluate the therapeutic effects after RFA(More)
BACKGROUND Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of lung tumours has recently received much attention for the promising results achieved. Here, to evaluate the value of three-dimensional reconstruction CT in radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of advanced non-small cell lung cancer. METHODS Sixty-six cases of advanced non-small cell lung cancer with 68 lesions (2(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE This study compared the efficacy and safety of icotinib with standard second-line chemotherapy (single-agent docetaxel or pemetrexed) in previously treated advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS Thirty-two consecutive patients treated with icotinib and 33 consecutive patients treated with standard second-line(More)
BACKGROUND Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations occur in about 50% of Asian patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Patients with advanced NSCLC and EGFR mutations derive clinical benefit from treatment with EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). This study assessed the efficacy and safety of adjuvant icotinib without chemotherapy in(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to explore roles of thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1), CD56, P40 expression and other clinical characteristics predicting response and survival in patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC). METHODS Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded biopsy tissues were retrospectively obtained from 198 SCLC patients who were(More)
Gastric cancer is one of the most common causes of death worldwide, although its incidence has steadily declined in recent years. There is strong evidence that aberrantly expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in gastric cancer tumorigenesis. Furthermore, CRMP4 is closely associated with the occurrence and development of gastric cancer, and our(More)
OBJECTIVE The diagnosis and surgical treatment of 36 huge mediastinal tumors were summarized in order to evaluate the effect and safety of the operation. METHODS Thirty-six huge mediastinal tumor patients treated in our department from June 2006 to June 2013 were retrospective analyzed, of whom clinical manifestations, diagnosis, surgical treatment and(More)
BACKGROUND Epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) is one of the foundamental treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with EGFR mutation, however some patients might develop locally progression in primary site. The aim of this study is to assess the clinical application of radiofrequency ablation after locally(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Positron emission tomography (PET) is used increasingly in staging of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) as a non-invasive tool. However, the role of PET in mediastinal lymphatic staging of NSCLC is not clear. The aim of this study was to demonstrate the efficacy of mediastinoscopy in determining mediastinal lymphatic metastasis in(More)
