BACKGROUND Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Early diagnosis is essential for improvements of prognosis and survival of the patients. Currently, there is no effective biomarker available in clinical settings for early detection of lung cancer. Altered expressions in many cancer types including NSCLC and stable… (More)
Intrarenal interleukin-15 (IL-15) plays a major role controlling epithelial survival and polarization both in physiological and pathologic conditions. Herein, we confirmed that human renal cell carcinomas (RCCs) express a membrane-bound IL-15 isoform displaying an unusual molecular weight of 27 kDa. Its stimulation with soluble IL-15 receptor α chain… (More)
Objectives. To investigate how Xiao-Ai-Ping injection, a traditional Chinese medicine and an ancillary drug in tumor treatment, enhances the antitumor effects of cisplatin on Lewis lung cancer (LLC) cells. Methods. LLC-bearing mice were daily intraperitoneally injected with various doses of cisplatin, Xiao-Ai-Ping, or cisplatin plus Xiao-Ai-Ping,… (More)
BACKGROUND Dysfunction of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) has been demonstrated to be involved in psychiatric diseases. However, the expression patterns and functions of the regulatory lncRNAs in schizophrenia (SZ) patients have rarely been systematically reported. MATERIAL AND METHODS The lncRNAs in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were screened… (More)

Schizophrenia (SZ) is a debilitating psychotic disorder of unknown etiology, and the diagnosis is essentially based on clinical symptoms. So it is urgent to find an objective and feasible clinical diagnostic index for SZ. MicroRNA array was performed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) obtained from young SZ patients and gender-, age-, and… (More)
