Two challenging issues are notable in tweet clustering. Firstly, the sparse data problem is serious since no tweet can be longer than 140 characters. Secondly, synonymy and polysemy are rather common because users intend to present a unique meaning with a great number of manners in tweets. Enlightened by the recent research which indicates Wikipedia is(More)
OBJECTIVE To expand the current knowledge on the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic total gastrectomy (LTG) for gastric cancer in comparison with open total gastrectomy (OTG). BACKGROUND Additional studies comparing laparoscopic versus open total gastric resection have been published, and it is necessary to update the meta-analysis of this subject. (More)
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) in high concentrations induces apoptosis of the tumor cells which express high levels of epidermal growth factor receptor. However, the precise mechanism for this induction is not clear. Galectin-3 is the most probable candidate for mediating this effect, as it is known to induce anti-apoptotic activity in a variety of tumor(More)
OBJECTIVE To elucidate the feasibility and safety of laparoscopic total gastrectomy with D2 dissection (LTGD2) for gastric cancer in comparison with open total gastrectomy with D2 dissection (OTGD2). BACKGROUND More surgeons have chosen laparoscopic total gastrectomy as an alternative to open total gastrectomy. But no meta-analysis has been performed to(More)
The relationship between genetic polymorphisms of glutathione S-transferase (GST) and the development of glioma has been investigated in several epidemiologic studies. However, these studies report inconsistent results. In order to get this precise result, a meta-analysis was conducted by calculating the pooled odds ratios (OR) and the 95 % confidence(More)
The HOX transcript antisense intergenic RNA (HOTAIR), a well-known long noncoding RNA, is involved in pathogenesis and progress of multiple tumors. Its ectopic expression and biological functions have been observed in gastric cancer. In this study, we conducted a two-stage case-control study to evaluate whether genetic variations of HOTAIR were associated(More)
BACKGROUND Linc00152 has been identified highly associated with the tumorigenesis and development of gastric cancer, however, the detailed mechanism of Linc00152 involved still remains unclear. METHODS RT-PCR and western blot were used to detect the expression of Linc00152 and EGFR. The CCK8 and EDU assay was employed to measure cell proliferation while(More)
Paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD) is the most common type of paroxysmal dyskinesia and is characterized by involuntary, intermittent movements induced by sudden movements. Here, we describe 24 patients with PKD, whose clinical data were analyzed. The attacks of involuntary movements were all short lasting, and could involve extremities, trunk, neck,(More)
Centrosomal protein 55 (CEP55) is the latest found member in the centrosomal relative protein family, which participates in cell-cycle regulation. CEP55 exists in many kinds of normal tissues and tumour cells such as hepatocellular carcinoma, and is important in carcinogenesis. However, the role of CEP55 in the pathogenesis of gastric cancer (GC) remains(More)
Laparoscopic repair (LR) for perforated peptic ulcer (PPU) has been introduced since 1990. Although many studies comparing LR with open repair (OR) have been published, controversy remains regarding the clinical utility of laparoscopic techniques for the treatment of PPU. Thus, it is necessary for us to broaden our knowledge on this subject with the newly(More)
