Rural–urban female migrant workers living in factories are a special majority group in the city of Shenzhen, China. These female workers came from different provinces of mainland China. The health-related issues and quality of life (QOL) of this migrator have become serious public health and social problems, which have not been well characterized. This(More)
AIM To verify that the T stage has greater weight than the N stage in the staging of colorectal cancer. METHODS Open data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program were reviewed and analyzed according to the T stage, N stage, and patients' observed survival (OS). The relative weights of the T and N stages were calculated by multiple(More)
Tubulin, the major structural component of microtubules, is a target for the development of anticancer agents. Two series of 1,5-diaryl substituted 1,2,3,4-tetrazoles were concisely synthesized, using a palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction, and identified as potent antiproliferative agents and novel tubulin polymerization inhibitors that act at the(More)
In search of new compounds with strong antiproliferative activity and simple molecular structure, we designed a novel series of agents based on the 2-amino-3-alkoxycarbonyl/cyano-5-arylethylthiophene scaffold. The presence of the ethyl spacer between the 2',5'-dimethoxyphenyl and the 5-position of the thiophene ring, as well as the number and location of(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the survival status and prognostic factors of patients with liver metastases from colorectal cancer. METHODS The survival rate and prognostic factors of 112 patients with liver metastases from colorectal cancer, who had complete follow-up data, were retrospectively assessed by Kaplan-Meier analysis and multivariate regression(More)
Vascular-targeting agents (VTAs) can be divided into two groups: anti-angiogenesis agents and vascular disrupting agents (VDAs). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antineoplastic activity of a combination of the anti-angiogenesis agent, Endostar, and the VDA combretastatin, A4 phosphate (CA4P). This study is the first to evaluate the activity of(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the effect of homoharringtonine (HHT) on K562 cell proliferation, apoptosis and expression of BCL-2 and NF-κB proteins. The cells proliferation was assayed with MTT method, the cell apoptosis, cell cycle and BCL-2 expression were analyzed with flow cytometry, NF-κB protein expression was detected with Western blot. The(More)
The ErbB family members are protein tyrosine kinases, which play a crucial role in the signal transduction pathways that regulate key cellular functions. Overexpression of the ErbB family members is associated with oncogenicity, metastatic potential, cell proliferation, apoptosis, angiogenesis, and prognosis in cancer. Molecular-targeted therapies centered(More)
A new series of tubulin polymerization inhibitors based on the 2-aryl/heteroaryl-4-amino-5-(3',4',5'-trimethoxybenzoyl)thiazole scaffold was synthesized and evaluated for growth inhibition activity on a panel of cancer cell lines, cell cycle effects, and in vivo potency. Structure-activity relationships were elucidated with various substitutions at the(More)
A wide variety of small molecules with diverse molecular scaffolds inhibit microtubule formation. In this article we report a one-pot procedure for the preparation of a novel 2-(N-pyrrolidinyl)-4-amino-5-(3',4',5'-trimethoxybenzoyl)thiazole in which the size of the substituent at the C-2 position of the thiazole ring plays an essential role in compound(More)
