BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to test for human papilloma virus (HPV) infection and human telomerase RNA component (hTERC) gene amplification in tissues derived from esophageal cancer, in esophagus displaying atypical hyperplasia and in normal tissue, and to analyze the relationship between them and discuss whether HPV infection and hTERC gene(More)
We conducted a joint (pooled) analysis of three genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) in individuals of Chinese ancestry (5,337 ESCC cases and 5,787 controls) with 9,654 ESCC cases and 10,058 controls for follow-up. In a logistic regression model adjusted for age, sex, study and two eigenvectors, two new loci(More)
Gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA) is a unique malignant tumor for its characteristics different from gastric and esophageal cancer epidemiologically and pathologically. The incidence of GCA has steadily increased for the last three decades and many patients are diagnosed with advanced stage because of the lack of typical and obvious symptoms at an early(More)
This study aimed to compare the changes and determine the clinical significance of carbohydrate antigens CA242, CA199, CA125, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and tumor-specific growth factor (TSGF) before and after cryoablation by Cryocare system. Thirty-one pancreatic cancer patients were selected to receive cryoablation by Cryocare system. The serum(More)
The aim of this study was to characterize histo-chemical patterns and Das-1 and Ki67 protein expression in gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA) and intestinal metaplasia (IM) lesions adjacent to GCA. Histochemical techniques, including Alcian blue/periodic acid-Schiff (AB/PAS), high iron diamine/Alcian blue (HID/AB) and avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex (ABC)(More)
Mounting evidence suggests a causal relationship between specific bacterial infections and the development of certain malignancies. However, the possible role of the keystone periodontal pathogen, Porphyromonas gingivalis, in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains unknown. Therefore, we examined the presence of P. gingivalis in esophageal mucosa,(More)
Gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA), which occurs at the gastroesophageal boundary, is one of the most malignant types of cancer. Over the past 30 years, the incidence of GCA has increased by approximately sevenfold, which has a more substantial increase than that of many other malignancies. However, as previous studies mainly focus on non-cardia gastric(More)
OBJECTIVE MicroRNA-150 (miR-150) was revealed to be an attractive prognostic biomarker in recent studies. However, the prognostic significance of miR-150 expression in cancer remains inconclusive. The aim of this study was to summarize the global predicting role of miR-150 in survival in patients with various carcinomas. METHODS Eligible studies were(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relationship between cytokine levels of transforming growth factor-beta-1 (TGF-β1), interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β), and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) in the plasma of esophageal carcinoma patients and radiation-induced pneumonitis (RP). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-three patients with esophageal carcinoma were treated with(More)
More and more studies have reported that epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) involved in the process of cancer development and progression occurs. The EMT also plays an important role in the movement and transfer of the tumors. Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) could induce the EMT in some cancer cell types. However, the mechanism underlying this(More)
