The association of Hispanic race/ethnicity and poverty with general survival time and breast cancer survival time was examined for a total of 14,896 breast cancer patients (14,035 White and 861 Hispanic) included in the National Cancer Institute Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (NCI SEER) program in New Mexico and San Francisco between 1975 and(More)
The role of quantitative viral load in development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) among chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) carriers was evaluated using real-time PCR (TaqMan PCR), a highly sensitive method for quantitative detection of HBV DNA. Serum samples collected at study entry from HCC cases and matched controls were chosen separately from ongoing(More)
Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) carriers with high-titer viremia (>10(5) virions/ml) are at increased risk for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between clearance of high-titer viremia and subsequent risk of HCC. The study population was a prospective cohort of 114 adults from Haimen City, China, all HBV(More)
Primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a significant cause of cancer morbidity and mortality on the global scale. Although epidemiologic studies have identified major risk factors for HCC, the sequence of oncogenic events at the molecular level remains poorly understood. While genetic allele loss appears to be a common event, the significance of the loss(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the mechanism of arsenic trioxide (ATO) in enhancing radiotherapy in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients. METHODS Seventy-four patients with NPC of T(1-4) N(0-1)M0 were randomized into two groups: 35 patients in Group A were treated with conventional radiotherapy alone, and the 39 in Group B received radiotherapy and additional(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the anti-angiogenic effect of ginsenoside Rg3 (Rg3 in abbreviation) in human nasopharyngeal carcinoma HNE-1 cells in vitro. METHODS The tube-like structure (TLS) formation of HNE-1 cells, cultured in medium with different concentrations of Rg3, was determined by in vitro anti-angiogenic test based on preliminary experiment observing the(More)
We aim to evaluate whether different definitions of esophagus (DEs) impact on the esophageal toxicity prediction for esophageal cancer (EC) patients administered intensity-modulated radiation therapy with simultaneous integrated boost (SIB-IMRT) vs. standard-dose IMRT (SD-IMRT). The esophagus for 21 patients diagnosed with primary EC were defined in the(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE The platinum-combination chemotherapy has been proved to be benefit to the patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but the suitable regimen of chemotherapy has been much debated during the last decade. This study was designed to compare MIP regimen [mitomycin + ifosfamid + cisplatin], TP regimen [Taxol + cisplatin],(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the in vitro effects of anti-proliferation and apoptosis-inducing with different sequence regimens of zoledronic acid plus paclitaxel in human nasopharyngeal carcinoma cell line HNE1 so as to explore the optimal sequence regimen of these two drugs and related mechanism. METHODS The cytotoxic effects of different sequence schemes of(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the in vitro anti-tumor effects of zoledronic acid on cell proliferation and invasion in human nasopharyngeal carcinoma cell line HNE1. METHODS The cytotoxic effects of zoledronic acid on HNE1 cells were detected by MTT assay, invasion of HNE1 cells by Transwell assay, secretion of (vascular endothelial growth factor)VEGF by(More)
