Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been shown to play important regulatory roles in cancer biology, and functional lncRNAs can be used for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. One lncRNA that has attracted significant attention is urothelial carcinoma-associated 1 (UCA1), which is(More)
Plenty of studies have demonstrated the prognostic value of various inflammation-based indexes in cancer. This study was designed to investigate the prognostic value of the C-reactive protein/albumin (CRP/Alb) ratio in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. A retrospective study of 423 cases with newly diagnosed esophageal squamous cell carcinoma was(More)
Heterosis is a biological phenomenon whereby the offspring from two parents show improved and superior performance than either inbred parental lines. Hybrid rice is one of the most successful apotheoses in crops utilizing heterosis. Transcriptional profiling of F(1) super-hybrid rice Liangyou-2186 and its parents by serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE)(More)
Estrogen-related genes and the fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene play a critical role in estrogen metabolism, and those polymorphisms are associated with a poor prognosis in breast cancer. However, little is known about the association between these polymorphisms and the efficacy of anastrozole. The aim was to investigate the impact of the genetic(More)
BACKGROUND Metabolic syndrome and/or its components have been demonstrated to be risk factors for several cancers. They are also found to influence survival in breast, colon and prostate cancer, but the prognostic value of metabolic syndrome in gastric cancer has not been investigated. METHODS Clinical data and pre-treatment information of metabolic(More)
The aim of our study is firstly to evaluate the prevalence and prognostic value of nutrition risk in gastric cancer patients and secondly to explore whether the nutrition support can prolong the survival of advanced gastric cancer patients. It contained two study periods. In the first period, we prospectively evaluated the nutritional risk of gastric(More)
The present study was designed to examine the effect of agmatine, the decarboxylated product of L-arginine by L-arginine decarboxylase, on convulsion in the mouse maximal electroshock (MES) test and mouse glutamate-induced convulsant test. MES convulsion and glutamate convulsion were respectively induced by an electrical stimulation (110 V, 0.3 s, 8 Hz) and(More)
AIM To study the antimalarial effect of agmatine (Agm) on chloroquine-susceptible Plasmodium berghei K173 strain (S strain) and the P berghei K173 resistant strain (R strain). METHODS The antimalarial effects of Agm on P berghei K173 S strain and R strain were evaluated by Peters 4-d suppression test in mice. RESULTS Agm (12.5-200 mg/kg, ig, daily)(More)
The value of maintenance therapy after first-line chemotherapy has been verified in lung cancer and colorectal cancer, however, in gastric cancer, the role of maintenance therapy is still waiting for an answer. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of capecitabine as maintenance treatment after first-line chemotherapy in advanced(More)
AIM To explore the association between AT-rich interactive domain 1A (ARID1A) protein loss by immunohistochemistry and both clinicopathologic characteristics and prognosis in patients with colorectal cancer. METHODS We retrospectively collected clinicopathologic data and archived paraffin-embedded primary colorectal cancer samples from 209 patients,(More)
