Bone is one of the most frequent targets of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) metastasis, but the molecular mechanism remains unclear. β3-integrin plays an important role in invasion of various kinds of tumors. Yet, its role in bone-metastasis of SCLC is still unknown. In this study, we first examined the expression of β3-integrin in SBC-5 and SBC-3 cells by(More)
Ceramides are known to be a key component of the stratum corneum, the outermost protective layer of the skin that controls barrier function. In this work, molecular dynamics simulations are used to examine the behavior of ceramide bilayers, focusing on non-hydroxy sphingosine (NS) and non-hydroxy phytosphingosine (NP) ceramides. Here, we propose a modified(More)
INTRODUCTION Coexistence of pulmonary embolism and systemic arterial embolism suggest the diagnosis of paradoxical embolism which suggests the presence of intracardiac defects such as patent foramen ovale (PFO). CASE PRESENTATION A 42 year old man was found to have a paradoxical embolism in the systemic arterial circulation, in the setting of pulmonary(More)
Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy has been used for the stage III of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and has shown good clinical effects. However, the survival benefits of radiation therapy added in induction regimens remains controversial. We therefore conducted a meta-analysis of the published clinical trials to quantitatively evaluate the benefit of(More)
