BACKGROUND Recently, more and more studies investigated the association of inflammation parameters such as the Platelet Lymphocyte Ratio (PLR) and the prognosis of various cancers. However, the prognostic role of PLR in cancer remains controversial. METHODS We conducted a meta-analysis of published studies to evaluate the prognostic value of PLR in(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short noncoding RNA molecules, which posttranscriptionally regulate genes expression and play crucial roles in diverse biological processes, such as development, differentiation, apoptosis and proliferation. Here, we investigated the possible role of miRNAs in the development of multidrug resistance (MDR) in human gastric and lung(More)

The differential expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) in plasma of gastric cancer (GC) patients may serve as a diagnostic biomarker. A total of 33 miRNAs were identified through the initial screening phase (3 GC pools vs. 1 normal control (NC) pool) using quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) based Exiqon panel(More)
PURPOSE MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short non-coding RNA molecules, which post-transcriptionally regulate genes expression and play crucial roles in diverse biological processes. Recent studies have shown that dysregulation of miRNAs might modulate the resistance of cancer cells to anti-cancer drugs, yet the modulation mechanism is not fully understood. We aimed(More)
It has been found that the epigenetic silence of tumor suppressor genes induced by overexpression of histone deacetylases (HDACs) plays an important role in carcinogenesis. HDAC inhibitors (HDACi) that block the activity of specific HDACs have emerged as the accessory therapeutic agents for multiple human cancers. To better understand the effects of HDACi(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to determine whether paeoniflorin enhances 5-fluorouracil-induced apoptosis in human gastric carcinoma cells, and, if so, to determine the relationship between this apoptosis and NF-kappaB activation. METHODS Paeoniflorin was diluted to different concentrations and added to gastric carcinoma cells (SGC-7901) at different times. Western(More)
Drug resistance is one of the leading causes of chemotherapy failure in cancer treatment. MicroRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) are short non-coding RNA molecules that post-transcriptionally regulate gene expression and play a critical role in diverse biological processes. In this study, we report that miR-503 regulates the resistance of non-small cell lung cancer(More)
The role of tumor suppressors and cell cycle factors in gastric carcinogenesis are well understood; however, the post-transcriptional changes that affect gene expression in gastric cancer are poorly characterized. MiR-135a has been shown to play a role in Hodgkin lymphoma. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression and role of miR-135a in(More)
