BACKGROUND/AIMS The pathogenic mechanisms underlying pituitary adenoma formation, progression, and invasion are poorly understood. To identify candidate tumor suppressor genes, we selected somatotroph adenomas as representative of pituitary adenomas. METHODS/RESULTS We used genome-wide differential expression analysis in 15 invasive and 12 noninvasive(More)
Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC), one of the most common malignant solid tumors in the world, has a high rate of mortality, recurrence, and metastasis. Recombinant human arginase (rhArg) recently has been developed in arginine deprivation therapy for a number of malignant tumors. In the present study, we observed that rhArg triggered significant(More)
The pathogenic mechanisms underlying pituitary somatotroph adenoma formation, progression are poorly understood. To identify candidate tumor suppressor genes involved in pituitary somatotroph adenoma tumorigenesis, we used HG18 CpG plus Promoter Microarray in 27 human somatotroph adenomas and 4 normal human adenohypophyses. RASSF3 was found with frequent(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The Glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) polymorphism have been considered a risk modifier for developing head and neck cancer (HNC) in many studies; however, the results of such studies are inconsistent. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible association between the GSTP1 Ile105Val polymorphism and risk of HNC. METHOD We(More)
Previous studies revealed that polydatin, a natural small compound, possessed protective effect against ischemia/reperfusion injury and inflammation. However, the action and molecular mechanism of its potent anti-cancer activity remain poorly understood. In the present study, polydatin significantly killed several human tumor cell lines in a dose- and(More)
Nedaplatin, a cisplatin analog, was developed to reduce the toxicity of cisplatin, whereas it can be cross-resistant with cisplatin in some circumstances. This study aimed to investigate the role of autophagy in nedaplatin induced cell death in cisplatin-resistant nasopharyngeal carcinoma cells. Here, we showed that HNE1/DDP and CNE2/DDP cells were(More)
OBJECTIVE As a member of the S100 proteins family, the involvement of S100A11 has been suggested in a wide range of biological processes such as cell growth and motility, cell-cycle progression, transcription, differentiation and smooth muscle cell migration. However, the expression of S100A11 and its exact function in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma(More)
To discover candidate biomarkers for diagnosis and detection of human laryngeal carcinoma and explore possible mechanisms of this cancer carcinogenesis, two-dimensional strong cation-exchange/reversed-phase nano-scale liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry analysis was used to identify differentially expressed proteins between the laryngeal carcinoma(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE A traditional Chinese medicine Selaginella doederleinii Hieron has been combined with radiotherapy for the treatment of human nasopharyngeal carcinoma in clinic in China. However, the detailed mechanism of anti-tumor effect of Selaginella doederleinii remains elusive. AIM OF THE STUDY This study was designed to investigate(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the CD44 expression in different laryngeal carcinoma tissues and their clinical significance. METHOD Using immunohistochemistry methods to study 261 cases of archived paraffin-embedded laryngeal tissue. RESULT The results turned out to be as follows: 1. A high level of CD44 expression was more frequently found in laryngeal carcinoma(More)
