BACKGROUND The present study examined the role of microRNA (miR)-96 in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) invasion. METHODS The expression of miR-96 was detected by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction in human RCC cell lines with high (Caki-1) and low (786-O) metastatic potential. Invasive ability and Ezrin expression were assessed in(More)
BACKGROUND At present, there are two main types of lung cancer xenograft models: those derived from stable cell lines, and patient-derived xenograft models established by surgically resected tissues. However, these animal models may not reflect the biological and genetic characteristics of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We utilized(More)
The worry of potential residual renal cancer cells in donor kidney after resection of small renal cancer impedes the extensive use of such controversial donor source. To explore the impacts of organ preservation process on the survival of renal cancer cells, we detected cell proliferation and viability of benign and malignant renal cell lines and clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE With functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), cerebral function imaging of acupuncture and sham acupuncture at Taichong (LR 3) in patients with essential hypertension (EH) was observed to analyze central mechanism of Taichong (LR 3) to treat EH. METHODS Eighteen EH patients were divided into a twisting acupuncture group (10 cases) and a(More)
