Circulating microRNAs in plasma of patients with gastric cancers
Background:We examined plasma microRNA (miRNA) concentrations from patients with gastric cancers (GCs) to assess their clinical application for diagnosing and monitoring diseases.Methods:We initiallyExpand

Circulating microRNAs in plasma of patients with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma
Background:Several recent studies demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) are stably detectable in plasma/serum. We hypothesised that plasma miRNAs concentrations contributed to potential biomarkers inExpand

Clinical impact of circulating miR-221 in plasma of patients with pancreatic cancer
Background:Several recent studies have demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) are stably detectable in plasma/serum. We tested miR-221 and miR-375, which are frequently reported to be highly and poorlyExpand

Detection of gastric cancer-associated microRNAs on microRNA microarray comparing pre- and post-operative plasma
Background:Recently, it was reported that plasma microRNAs (miRNAs) are low-invasive useful biomarkers for cancer. We attempted to isolate gastric cancer (GC)-associated miRNAs comparing pre- andExpand

Clinical impact of circulating miR-18a in plasma of patients with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma
Background:Several recent studies demonstrated that microRNAs are stably detectable in plasma/serum. We tested whether miR-18a, which is located in the miR-17-92 cluster and reported to be highlyExpand

Circulating long non-coding RNAs in plasma of patients with gastric cancer.
BACKGROUND We examined the levels of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in the plasma of patients with gastric cancer to assess their clinical significance for diseases diagnosing and monitoring. Expand

Prognostic impact of circulating miR-21 in the plasma of patients with gastric carcinoma.
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) such as miR-17-5p, miR-21, miR-106a and miR-106b are reported to be highly expressed in gastric carcinoma (GC) tissues. Recently, we reported that these miRNAs wereExpand

Surgical Outcomes of Gastrectomy for Elderly Patients with Gastric Cancer
BackgroundThis study was designed to determine the surgical outcomes of gastric cancer in elderly patients. This information can help establish appropriate treatment for these patients.MethodsA totalExpand

Circulating miR-18a: a sensitive cancer screening biomarker in human cancer.
MicroRNAs have been reported to be stably detectable in plasma/serum and to exhibit resistance to endogenous ribonuclease activity because of binding to proteins such as Argonaute-2 and high-densityExpand

XB130 as an Independent Prognostic Factor in Human Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma
BackgroundAdaptor proteins, with multimodular structures, can participate in the regulation of various cellular functions. A novel adaptor protein XB130 has been implicated as a substrate andExpand
