Recently, a functional insertion/deletion polymorphism (-94 insertion/deletion ATTG) in the promoter of NFKB1 gene, which encodes the p50 subunit of nuclear factor-kappaB protein complex, was identified. The aim of this study was to explore the association between this polymorphism and bladder cancer in a Chinese population. The NFKB1 polymorphism was(More)
Interleukin-27 (IL-27) has been recognized as a pleiotropic cytokine with both pro- and anti-inflammatory properties. Few studies have investigated polymorphisms and serum/plasma levels of IL-27 in diseases including cancers. This study has analyzed the associations of IL-27 gene polymorphisms, as well as plasma levels of IL-27, with susceptibility to(More)
PURPOSE There is increasing evidence that ischemic postconditioning may noticeably attenuate renal ischemic-reperfusion injury, although the specific mechanisms are not fully clear. We examined the role of the complement system, especially membrane bound complement regulatory proteins, in postconditioning after renal ischemic-reperfusion injury in a right(More)
The evolutionarily conserved Six1-Eya1 transcription complex is central to mammalian organogenesis, and deletion of these genes in mice results in developmental anomalies of multiple organs that recapitulate human branchio-oto-renal (BOR) and DiGeorge syndromes. Here, we report that both Six1 and Eya1 are strongly expressed in the peri-cloacal mesenchyme(More)
To assess whether polymorphisms of the interleukin-23 receptor (IL23R) gene are associated with bladder transitional cell carcinoma because chronic inflammation contributes to bladder cancer and the IL23R is known to be critically involved in the carcinogenesis of various malignant tumors. 226 patients with bladder cancer and 270 age-matched controls were(More)
BACKGROUND Cryptorchidism is one of the most common congenital anomalies in newborn boys. Although the mechanism responsible for the pathophysiology of cryptorchidism has not yet been well addressed, the Wnt signaling pathway has been involved in the development of cryptorchidism. Axin1 is a central component of the Wnt signaling pathway and may play a(More)
We present a case of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the urinary bladder. A 15-year-old boy with no previous history of malignancy presented to our hospital with hematuria, frequent micturition and urgent urination for two weeks; on contrast enhanced CT scan of the pelvis, we found a bladder tumor. Immunohistochemitry and fluorescent in situ(More)
OBJECTIVES To provide a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies comparing ureterolithotripsy (URS) with percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) or laparoscopic ureterolithotomy (LU) techniques for the management of large proximal ureteral stones (diameter greater than 10 mm). METHODS A literature search was performed using PubMed, EMBASE, EBSCO, Web(More)
Programmed cell death 6 (PDCD6) has recently been found dysregulated in tumors of various origin. The aim of this study is to explore the association between PDCD6 genetic polymorphisms and susceptibility to bladder cancer and survival of patients with bladder cancer. Two tag SNPs of PDCD6, rs3756712 and rs4957014, were genotyped in 332 patients with(More)
Interleukin-31 is a crucial cytokine triggering inflammation which could be one of the risk factors of tumors. However, data for correlation between IL-31 and tumors are limited. The purpose of our study was to discuss whether genetic polymorphisms of IL-31 were associated with the susceptibility and clinical outcomes of bladder cancer. Our study enrolled(More)
