BACKGROUND ErbB4 expression has been noted in various tumors, but its regulatory mechanism in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate whether miR-302b regulates the expression of ErbB4 at the post-transcriptional level and to determine its expression, significance, and function in ESCC. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND X-chromosome-linked IAP (XIAP) and nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) are frequently overexpressed and correlate closely with chemoradiotherapy resistance and poor prognosis in many cancers. However, the significance of XIAP and NF-κB expression in radiotherapy sensitivity and its effect on the prognosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) are(More)
BACKGROUND Propofol is one of the most commonly used intravenous anaesthetic agents during cancer resection surgery, but the effect of propofol on gallbladder cancer is not clear. NF-E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is abundantly expressed in cancer cells and relates to proliferation, invasion, and chemoresistance. The aims of the current study were to evaluate(More)
Nuclear factor E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2 or NFE2L2) is abundantly expressed in cancer cells and relates to proliferation, invasion, and chemoresistance. Our early observations also found that expression of Nrf2 was up-regulated in kinds of cancer including human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells. But there are limited reports about the expression,(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the potential efficacy of preventive effect of ulinastatin in esophagectomy patients. METHODS Eighty patients with esophageal cancer were preoperatively allocated at random into two equal groups. Ulinastatin was administered to the treatment group (U) whereas the control group (C) received a placebo. The arterial oxygen tension and(More)
