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)
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)
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)
An increasing body of evidence indicates that miRNAs have a critical role in carcinogenesis and cancer progression; however, the role of miRNAs in the tumorigenesis of adencarcinoma of gastric esophageal junction (AGEJ) remains largely unclear. The SGC7901 and BGC-823 gastric cancer cell lines were used. The expressions of miR-645 and IFIT2(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)
Esophageal cancer (EC) is one of the most aggressive gastrointestinal malignancies, possessing an insidious onset and a poor prognosis. Numerous transcription factors and inflammatory mediators have been reported to play a pivotal role in the initiation and progression of this cancer. However, the specifics of the signaling network responsible for said(More)
The present study aimed to investigate the expression of Golgi phosphoprotein-3 (GOLPH3) protein in colon cancer tissues and the association with the prognosis of patients. In total, 98 patients with colon cancer admitted to The First Affiliated Hospital of Henan University of Science and Technology for surgery between June 2011 and June 2013 were taken as(More)
Our studies investigating the existence of tumor-initiating cell (TIC) populations in human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) had identified a subpopulation of cells isolated from ESCC patient-derived tumor specimens marked by an ALDH(bri+) phenotype bear stem cell-like features. Importantly, KDM4C, a histone demethylase was enhanced in ALDH(bri+)(More)
