AIM To examine the status and clinical significance of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene alterations in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. METHODS A total of 213 cases of HCC were examined by fluorescent in situ hybridization using dual color break-apart ALK probes for the detection of chromosomal translocation and gene copy number gain. HCC(More)
MicroRNA-214 (MiR-214) is aberrantly expressed in several human tumors such as ovarian cancer and breast cancer. However, the role of miR-214 in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is still unknown. In this study, we report that miR-214 was overexpressed in NPC cell lines and tissues. Silencing of miR-214 by LNA-antimiR-214 in NPC cells resulted in promoting(More)
Although microRNA-30a (miR-30a) has been shown to regulate cancer metastasis, the molecular mechanism has not yet been clearly elucidated in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). The present study was to investigate the miR-30a expression pattern and its potential functions and further to identify its target gene and corresponding clinical applications in NPC.(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a common tumor in Southern China, but the oncogene mutational status of NPC patients has not been clarified. Using time-of-flight mass spectrometry, 238 mutation hotspots in 19 oncogenes were examined in 123 NPC patients. The relationships between mutational status and clinical data were assessed with a χ(2) or Fisher's(More)
Overexpression of miR-155 in nasopharygeal carcinoma (NPC) is partly driven by Epstein-Bar virus infection. However the role of miR-155 in NPC oncogenesis is unclear. This study showed that miR-155 inhibitor could inhibit the cell migration in NPC cell lines. ZDHHC2 was identified as a direct target of miR-155 and downregulation of ZDHHC2 prompted cell(More)
AbstractAiming at complexity and uncertainty of actual decision-making environment, this study proposes a multiple attribute decision-making model of grey target based on positive and negative bull’s-eye. Firstly, it defines that the optimal effect vector and the worst effect vector of grey target decision are respectively positive, negative bull’s-eye of(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic multisystem autoimmune disease, with frequent flares amid remissions. Basophils contribute to the immunopathogenesis of SLE. This retrospective clinical study evaluated blood basophil count as a potential marker of SLE activity. This study included 213 patients with SLE, 70 with non-SLE chronic kidney disease(More)
BACKGROUND The goal of this study was to establish a plasma microRNA profile by use of next-generation sequencing that could aid in assessment of patient prognosis in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS Two panels of NPC patients and healthy controls (HCs) were recruited for this study. We used deep sequencing to screen plasma microRNAs.(More)
BACKGROUND Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection is one of the most important factors of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) endemic areas. Transcription of EBV-encoded non-polyadenylated RNAs (EBERs) are presented in most of NPC tumors. Exploring EBERs as a prognostic marker for NPC might further be informative about the biology and the progression of the disease.(More)
To evaluate the frequency and clinicopathological features of ROS1 and RET rearrangements in N2 node positive stage IIIA (IIIA-N2) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, we retrospectively screened 204 cases with a tissue microarray (TMA) panel by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), and confirmed by direct sequencing and immunohistochemistry(More)
