INTRODUCTION The Wilms' tumor gene (WT1) has been identified as an oncogene in many malignant diseases, and aberrant WT1 expression has been linked to development, progression, and prognosis of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We sought to investigate the underlying mechanism of WT1 and metastasis in NSCLC. METHODS Real-time polymerase chain reaction(More)
Leptin is a potent adipokine that plays an important role in the progression of breast cancer and interferes with the action of tamoxifen. We investigated the molecular mechanism underlying the effect of leptin on tamoxifen resistance in breast cancer cells that express leptin receptor (ObRb), and evaluated the impact of ObRb suppression on tamoxifen(More)
Gastric cancer (GC) has a high morbidity worldwide each year especially in China and advanced GC is well known with poor prognosis, for which surgical resection combine adjuvant chemotherapy is the optimal choice for therapy. Leukocyte is an important index during the treatment for its influence on drugs' dosage and tolerance. Therefore, peripheral blood(More)
BACKGROUND Gastrectomy with D2 lymphadenectomy is a standard procedure of curative resection for gastric cancer (GC). The aim of this study was to develop a simple and reliable prognostic scoring system for GC treated with D2 gastrectomy combined with adjuvant chemotherapy. METHODS A prognostic scoring system was established based on clinical and(More)
Wilms' tumor 1 (WT1) is an oncogene that has been correlated with tumor progression, bad prognosis and chemo-resistance in Non-Small-Cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Here, we found that WT1 expression is significantly higher in NSCLCs than in benign controls, and that Cisplatin-resistant patients display a notable increase in WT1 expression following relapse. In(More)
