PURPOSE Mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) kinase domain can predict tumor response to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, obtaining tumor tissues for mutation analysis is challenging. We hypothesized that plasma-based EGFR mutation analysis is feasible and has value in predicting tumor(More)
Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Cell death is a hallmark characteristic of various cardiac diseases, including myocardial infarction and heart failure. Emerging evidences suggest that necrosis is programmed and is one of the main forms of cell death in the pathological process in cardiac diseases.(More)
In previous studies, it has been shown that recombinant human neuregulin-1(rhNRG-1) is capable of improving the survival rate in animal models of doxorubicin (DOX)-induced cardiomyopathy; however, the underlying mechanism of this phenomenon remains unknown. In this study, the role of rhNRG-1 in attenuating doxorubicin-induce apoptosis is confirmed. Neonatal(More)
BACKGROUND Current guidelines recommend prolonged dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) for patients with drug-eluting stents (DES) implantation. Nevertheless, optimal discontinuation of DAPT remains a controversy. We performed a meta-analysis of all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that evaluate optimal discontinuation of DAPT in patients undergoing(More)
This study designs a novel nanoparticle system with core-shell structure based on pullulan and poly(β-amino) ester (PBAE) for the hepatoma-targeted codelivery of gene and chemotherapy agent. Plasmid DNA expressing green fluorescent protein (pEGFP), as a model gene, was fully condensed with cationic PBAE to form the inner core of PBAE/pEGFP polycomplex.(More)
Emerging evidence suggest that the abnormal mitochondrial fission participates in pathogenesis of cardiac diseases, including myocardial infarction and heart failure. However, the molecular components regulating mitochondrial network in heart remain largely unidentified. Here we report that NFAT4, miR-324-5p and mitochondrial fission regulator 1 (Mtfr1)(More)
7031 Background: EGFR-TKI has been recommended as standard second-line therapy for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in China. However, it remains unclear whether there is a need to detect EGFR mutations before using second-line EGFR-TKI therapy. The key to answer this question is to identify whether chemotherapy may change EGFR mutation status.(More)
Stepwise pH-responsive nanoparticle system containing charge reversible pullulan-based (CAPL) shell and poly(β-amino ester) (PBAE)/poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLAG) core is designed to be used as carriers of paclitaxel (PTX) and combretastatin A4 (CA4) for combining antiangiogenesis and chemotherapy to treat hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). CAPL-coated(More)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility of malignant pleural effusions (MPE) as surrogate samples for the detection of echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like4 (EML4)-anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) and to investigate the prognostic and predictive value of EML4-ALK in MPE of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS One hundred and nine NSCLC(More)
