Lung cancer is one of the most common human cancers worldwide. Among all lung cancer cases, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for approximately 85%. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are non-protein-coding transcripts that have been shown to play important roles in tumourigenesis and tumor progression. To reveal novel tumor-related lncRNAs in NSCLC(More)
BACKGROUND Vimentin is a member of the intermediate filament proteins and a canonical marker of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which is pivotal in tumorigenesis, metastasis and invasion in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The current meta-analysis aimed to investigate the associations between vimentin and prognosis and progression in NSCLC.(More)
MicroRNA (miRNA) played an important role in the progression of liver cancer and its diagnostic and prognostic values have been frequently studied. However, different microarray techniques and small sample size led to inconsistent findings in previous studies. We performed a comprehensive meta-analysis of a total of 357 tumor and 283 noncancerous samples(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetic microvascular changes are considered to be influenced by angiogenic factors. As a compensatory mechanism, the expression of some angiogenic factors are elevated in ischemic myocardium. The aim of this study was to investigate the changes of serum angiogenic factors, and the association among these angiogenic factors, the severity of(More)
Quadrature convergence of the extended Lagrange interpolant L2n+1f for any continuous function f is studied, where the interpolation nodes are the n zeros τi of an orthogonal polynomial of degree n and the n+ 1 zeros τ̂j of the corresponding “induced” orthogonal polynomial of degree n + 1. It is found that, unlike convergence in the mean, quadrature(More)
Lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC) accounts for a significant proportion of lung cancer and there have been few therapeutic alternatives for recurrent LUSC due to the lack of specific driver molecules. To investigate the prospective role of lncRNAs in the tumorigenesis and progression of LUSC, the aberrantly expressed lncRNAs were calculated based on The(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) expression profile signature for survival assessment in lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC) are largely inconsistent due to distinct detecting approaches and small sample size. Systematic and integrative investigation of RNA-Seq based data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) herein was performed to determine candidate lncRNAs(More)
BACKGROUND Muscle-sparing thoracotomy (MST) has recently been developed in an attempt to minimize tissue injuries during thoracic operation and postoperative sequelae. However, its potential advantages over traditional posterolateral thoracotomy (PLT) remain to be determined. Here, we performed a meta-analysis on all available studies that compare the pros(More)
Given an integer n ~ 1, and the orthogonal polynomial1rn (· ; du) of degree n relative to some positive measure du, the polynomial system "induced" by 1rn is the system of orthogonal polynomials {7rk,n} corresponding to the modified measure dUn = 1r~du. Our interest here is in the problem of determining the coefficients in the three-term recurrence relation(More)
The relative phase shift among different components in the superposition of orbital angular momentum (OAM) states contains significant information. However, with existing methods of measuring the OAM spectrum, the phase term of the spectrum coefficient is hard to obtain. In this Letter, a mode-matching method is proposed to identify the complex OAM spectrum(More)
