However, epidemiologic evidence has not been consistent nor has it provided unequivocal support for this purported inverse relationship. Recent evidence has also raised a concern that folate supplementation may promote(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the survival and long-term morbidities of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) in children and adolescents.We retrospectively reviewed children and adolescents with NPC treated at Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center from February 1991 to October 2010, where the prognostic factors and long-term effects of therapy were(More)
PURPOSE Deregulation of microRNA (miRNA) has been extensively investigated in both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL); however, little is known about the roles of miRNAs in T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-LBL).

Insulin resistance is a risk factor for colon cancer, but it is not clear which of its metabolic sequelae are involved. The objective of this study was to determine whether increased adiposity and elevated circulating lipids commonly seen in insulin resistance promote colon carcinogenesis independent of changes in insulin. We made use of muscle-specific(More)
