BACKGROUND The purpose of the present study was to assess the value of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and MMP-9 expression and other potential prognostic factors in predicting the clinical outcome of patients after definitive surgery for pathologic stage IA non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS One hundred and forty-six consecutive and(More)
PURPOSE A nomogram is a useful and convenient tool for individualized cancer prognoses. We sought to develop a clinical nomogram for predicting survival of patients with resected non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PATIENTS AND METHODS On the basis of data from a multi-institutional registry of 6,111 patients with resected NSCLC in China, we identified(More)
We aimed to determine the expression of microRNA-203 (miR-203) in human lung cancer cell lines and to evaluate the effects of miR-203 by targeting survivin, on the lung cancer cell line 95-D to provide potential new strategies for treating lung cancer. The expression of miR-203 was detected using quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) in the in vitro cultured(More)
The purpose of this research was to study the roles of chloride intracellular channel protein 1 (CLIC1) and heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) in the clinical pathology of lung adenocarcinoma and to explore whether the expression of CLIC1 and HSP27 can be used as independent factors for the prediction of recurrence and prognosis after radical resection of lung(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the feasibility of complete video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (c-VATS) following neoadjuvant therapy (chemotherapy, targeted therapy and radiotherapy, either alone or in combination) for the treatment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS The clinical data of 43 NSCLC patients undergoing c-VATS following(More)
OBJECTIVE The purposes of this study were to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and advantages of nonintubated video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) under epidural anesthesia, by comparing with the performance of conventional approaches. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 354 patients (245 men and 109 women) were recruited in this study. The surgical(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the feasibility, safety and long-term outcomes of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). METHODS The clinical data of patients with NSCLC and severe COPD (preoperative FEV1% <50%) who underwent VATS(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the feasibility and safety of complete video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (C-VATS) under non-intubated anesthesia for the resection of anatomic pulmonary segments in the treatment of early lung cancer (T1N0M0), benign lung diseases and lung metastases. METHODS The clinical data of patients undergoing resection of anatomic pulmonary(More)
BACKGROUND Concerns on surgical treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have been increasing recent years. However, the significance of previous studies based on single center or regional experience in China was impaired by small sample size. Here we described a Chinese Multi-institutional Registry (CMIR) to address this disadvantage and proposed a(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of heat shock protein 60 (HSP60) in the clinical pathology of lung adenocarcinoma, and to explore whether the expression of HSP60 can act as an independent predictor for tumor relapse and prognosis after radical resection of lung adenocarcinoma. METHODS Paraffin sections of lung(More)
