Our study focuses on a set of laryngeal tumors that show reduced RUNX3 expression in the absence of transcriptional silencing of tumor suppressor gene RUNX3 by aberrant methylation of CpG islands. We report that the loss of expression of RUNX3 correlates with up-regulation of miR-106b in human laryngeal carcinoma tissue. The downregulation of RUNX3 is(More)
BACKGROUND Laser surgery and radiotherapy are commonly used to treat glottic cancer. OBJECTIVE OF REVIEW To compare outcomes and cost of laser surgery versus radiotherapy for T1-T2N0 glottic cancer. TYPE OF REVIEW Meta-analysis. SEARCH STRATEGY The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Ovid MEDLINE® In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations,(More)
AIMS Fascin-1, ezrin and paxillin, cytoskeleton-associated proteins, have been implicated in several human cancers, but their role in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) is unknown. We investigated the association of their expression and clinicopathologic factors and their prognostic value in LSCC. MATERIALS AND METHODS Quantitative RT-PCR and(More)
Overexpression of the metastasis-associated gene 1 (MTA1) has previously been found to be associated with progression of various cancer types to the metastasis stage. The function of MTA1 in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) remains unclear. To explore the significance of MTA1 in the invasion and migration processes in LSCC, gene transfection and RNA(More)
Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) is the second most common malignant head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Exploring the molecular indicators of malignant behavior will enhance our knowledge of this type cancer and provide novel options for its prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. MicroRNA might exert regulatory roles as oncogenes or(More)
DNA topoisomerase II-α (Topo II-α) is essential for numerous cell processes, including DNA replication, transcription, recombination, and chromosome separation and condensation. Altered Topo II-α expression may lead to carcinogenesis and cancer progression. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between Topo II-α expression levels(More)
To report one case of postoperative reconstruction of facial squamous cell carcinoma by cervicotho-racic flap and temporal flap in our hospital. Clinical symptoms of the patient are facial mass and tumor ulceration.The patient had chronic bronchitis. On admission, the right side of the patient face was found to have a mass of about 6. 5 cm X 5. 0 cm, and(More)
Background and aim: Understanding the molecular biological mechanisms underlying laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) invasion and metastasis is crucial for diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. We aimed to examine the expression of the tumor suppressor microRNA-204-5p (miR-204-5p) and its target gene, forkhead box C1 (FOXC1), in human LSCC and explore(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression and clinical significance of phosphatase and tensin homology deleted on chromosome ten (PTEN) and hypoxia-inducible factor 1 alpha (HIF-1α) in sinonasal inverted papilloma (SNIP) of different pathological grades. METHODS Fifty-five paraffin samples from patients with SNIP and a control group of 10 paraffin samples(More)
OBJECTIVE To probe the mutations of RB gene in laryngeal carcinoma, and the relation between it and the clinical phase. METHOD The mutations were detected by PCR-SSCP (polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism). RESULT In laryngeal carcinoma, the mutations were identified in 14(15.5%) of 90 samples, of which 2 were large(More)
