The previous published data on the association between TP53 codon 72, intron 6, and intron 3 16 bp polymorphisms and lung cancer risk remained controversial. This meta-analysis of literatures was performed to derive a more precise estimation of the relationship. 38 publications with 51 studies were selected for this meta-analysis, including 17,337 cases and(More)
Many studies have reported the role of COMT Val158Met with breast cancer risk, but the results remained controversial. In addition, previous meta-analysis on COMT Val158Met showed conflicting results. Hence, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between breast cancer and COMT Val158Met (30,199 cases and 38,922 controls) in different(More)
INTRODUCTION The aims of the study were to summarize the characteristics of the spinal epidural cavernous hemangioma, especially for the MRI, and to improve the accurate rate of the preoperative diagnosis. METHODS The clinical and medical imaging data of six patients with pure spinal epidural cavernous hemangioma proved by operation and pathology were(More)
INTRODUCTION Esthesioneuroblastoma (ENB) is an aggressive neuroectodermal malignancy in the upper nasal cavity with local infiltration and lymphatic or hematogenous metastasis. The purpose of this paper is to document three types of direct intracranial extensions by ENB using computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS Eleven(More)
The previous, published data on the association between CYP2E1 RsaI (rs2031920), DraI (rs6413432) polymorphisms and lung cancer risk remained controversial. Hence, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between lung cancer and CYP2E1 RsaI (5,074 cases and 6,828 controls from 34 studies), and CYP2E1 DraI (2,093 cases and 2,508 controls(More)
In positron emission tomography, transmission scans can be performed to estimate attenuation correction factors (ACFs) which are in turn used to correct the emission scans. And such an attenuation correction is crucial for quantitatively accurate PET reconstructions. The prior model used in this work was based on our assumption that the attenuation values(More)
Aflibercept (Ziv-aflibercept, VEGF Trap, AVE005) is an engineered protein that functions as a decoy receptor to bind vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A). Hemorrhagic events, including epistaxis, gastrointestinal bleeding, and pulmonary bleeding, is one of its major adverse effects, but the incidence rate and overall risk has not been(More)
Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors, everolimus and temsirolimus, are approved for the treatment of a variety of malignancies. Fatigue has been described with these agents as a common side effect, although the overall incidence and risk remain unclear. We performed a meta-analysis to calculate the overall incidence of fatigue in cancer patients(More)
BACKGROUND Aflibercept is a human recombinant fusion protein with antiangiogenic effects that functions as a decoy receptor to bind vascular endothelial growth factor A. Proteinuria is one of its major adverse effects with a substantial variation in the incidence rate, and the overall risk of proteinuria has not been systematically studied. We performed a(More)
