OBJECTIVE To evaluate clinical effects of shenqi fuzheng Injection ([Chinese characters: see text]) in the neoadjuvant chemotherapy for local advanced breast cancer and the effects on T-lymphocyte subsets. METHODS During the period from 2000 to 2005, 126 patients with local advanced breast cancer were treated with the neoadjuvant chemotherapy. They were(More)
The increased number of CD4(+)CD25(+)Treg cells in tumor local and peripheral splenic tissues is related to the low immune function as well as to tumor recurrence and metastasis. Our pre-clinical studies showed that low-dose radiation (LDR) of the spleen in liver cancer patients significantly improves immune functions. However, the molecular mechanisms of(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to investigate the expression and significance of 5 types of miRNAs in breast cancer to provide a theoretical and practical foundation for using these miRNAs in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, thereby improving medical services. MATERIAL/METHODS Stem-loop real-time RT-PCR was used to detect the expression levels(More)
BACKGROUND PD-L1 has been reported to be expressed in diverse human malignancies. However, the prognostic value of PD-L1 in digestive system cancers remains inconclusive. Therefore, we conducted this meta-analysis to evaluate the prognostic impact of PD-L1 expression in digestive system cancers. MATERIALS AND METHODS We searched the PubMed, Embase, and(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the inhibitory effects of dihydroartemisinin (DHA) on the primary tumor growth and metastasis of the human breast cancer cell line, MDA-MB-231, in vitro. The expression levels of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) were detected by immunocytochemistry in two cell lines (MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231). The(More)
BACKGROUND Perioperative chemotherapy for resectable squamous cell carcinoma of esophagus remains elusive. Thus, we assessed whether a perioperative regimen of paclitaxel, cisplatin, and 5- fluorouracil (PCF) improved outcomes among patients with curable squamous cell carcinoma of esophagus comparing with preoperative chemotherapy alone. METHODS Overall,(More)
Cisplatin and paclitaxel are considered to be the backbone of chemotherapy in lung adenocarcinoma. These agents show pleiotropic effects on cell death. However, the precise mechanisms remain unclear. The present study reported that phosphorylated caspase-8 at tyrosine 380 (p-Casp8) was characterized as a biomarker of chemoresistance to TP regimen (cisplatin(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical significance of phosphorylated caspase-8 by Src in patients with operable non-small cell lung cancer. METHODS Src and caspase-8 expressions were tested using immunohistochemistry in non-small cell lung cancer tissues and control lung tissues. The expression of phosphorylated caspase-8 at 380 tyrosine by Src was(More)
Genetic variations in transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) are associated with cancer risk. This study was conducted to establish the relationship between TCF7L2 polymorphisms (rs1225404, rs7003146, and rs7903146) and clinical features and risk of breast cancer in Northwest Chinese Han women. In this study, three polymorphisms of TCF7L2 (rs1225404,(More)
