Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is one of the most lethal neoplasm and is the fifth most common malignancy of gastrointestinal tract. The prognosis of gallbladder cancer is extremely terrible partially due to metastasis. Thus, understanding the molecular pathways controlling metastasis of this lethal disease may provide new targets for targeted therapeutic(More)
Nemo-like kinase (NLK), a serine/threonine protein kinase, has been implicated in tumor development and progression, and plays an important role in diverse signaling pathways by phosphorylating a variety of transcription factors. Recent studies demonstrated that altered expression of NLK was observed in various types of human cancers. However, the clinical(More)
Gallbladder cancer is the most frequent malignancy of the bile duct with high aggressive and extremely poor prognosis. The main objective of the paper was to investigate the inhibitory effects of oridonin, a diterpenoid isolated from Rabdosia rubescens, on gallbladder cancer both in vitro and in vivo and to explore the mechanisms underlying oridonin-induced(More)
Magnolol, the major active compound found in Magnolia officinalis has a wide range of clinical applications due to its anti-inflammation and anti-oxidation effects. This study investigated the effects of magnolol on the growth of human gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) cell lines. The results indicated that magnolol could significantly inhibit the growth of GBC(More)
The chloride intracellular channel 1 (CLIC1) gene family is a recently identified class of Cl channel proteins. Although CLIC1 involvement is well established in some cancers such as gastric cancer and colon cancer, its expression pattern in gallbladder cancer (GBC) remains unknown. The aim of our study was to investigate the expression of CLIC1 in relation(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and safety of total mesopancreas excision (TMpE) in the treatment of pancreatic head cancer. METHODS The clinical and pathological data of 120 patients with pancreatic head cancer who had undergone TMpE in our center from May 2010 to January 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS The mean operative time was(More)
LIM and SH3 protein 1 (LASP-1) is demonstrated to play a key role in occurrence and development of tumors. However, the expression and function of LASP-1 in cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) remain largely unexplored. This study aimed to investigate the effect of regulated LASP-1 expression on migration, invasion, proliferation, and apoptosis of CCA cells and on(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric cancer is one of the most common malignancies and is a leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Surgery is the most effective and successful method of treatment for gastric cancer, and systematic lymph node (LN) dissection is unquestionably the most effective procedure for treating LN metastases of gastric cancer. Systematic(More)
