Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) frequently metastasizes to bone. It is known that zoledronic acid is cytostatic to tumors, and everolimus, the inhibitor for mammalian target of the rapamycin, could inhibit many types of cancer. Herein, we evaluated the effect of zoledronic acid alone and in combination with everolimus on treating lung adenocarcinoma bone(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer is a common malignancy and is the major determinant of overall cancer mortality worldwidely. Approximately 70% of lung cancer patients will die from metastatic diseases. The aim of this study is to establish a Chinese lung adenocarcinoma cell line with high metastasis potency for exploring the mechanism of occurrence and development(More)
BACKGROUND Bone metastasis is one of the most common clinical phenomena of late stage lung cancer. A major impediment to understanding the pathogenesis of bone metastasis has been the lack of an appropriate animal and cell model. This study aims to establish human lung adenocarcinoma cell line with highly bone metastases potency with (99m)Tc-MDP bone(More)
Metastatic breast cancer often metastasizes to bone. The purposes of the study were (1) to evaluate the use of 99mTc-MDP bone scintigraphy for detection of metastatic bone lesions, and (2) to determine the efficacy of zoledronic acid in mice with breast cancer bone metastasis. All tumor-bearing mice were analyzed with radionuclide bone scintigraphy, X-ray,(More)
BACKGROUND A great individual differences to chemotherapeutic effects existed in the patient with advanced lung cancer. How to choose the optimum regimens to achieve the individuation and maximum effect of chemotherapy for lung cancer is worth exploring. The study was designed to examine the effect of ex vitro chemo-sensitivity assay in xeno-free culture of(More)
BACKGROUND The recurrence, metastasis and multidrug resistance (MDR) in lung cancer are the tough problems worldwide. This study was to establish a novel chinese lung adenocarcinoma cell line with high metastasis potential for exploring the mechanism of reccurrence, development and MDR in lung cancer. METHODS The cell came from the abdominal dropsy of a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The recurrence and metastasis of lung cancer is a tough problem worldwide. The aim of this study is to establish a novel Chinese lung adenocarcinoma cell line and its real bone-seeking clone sub-line for exploring the molecular mechanism of lung cancer metastasis. METHODS The cells came from the pleural effusion of a sixty-five(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in men and women. It is also the most common cause of brain metastases. A brain metastasis model is difficult to be established because of the presence of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and the lack of optimal methods for detecting brain metastasis in nude mice. Thus, the(More)
