BACKGROUND This study aimed to elucidate clinical significance of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangement in selected advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), to compare the application of different ALK detection methods, and especially evaluate a possible association between ALK expression and clinical outcomes in crizotinib-treated patients.

Accurate determination of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangements is critical in identifying ALK-positive patients for targeted therapy in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is the current standard method to detect ALK rearrangements but is technically challenging and costly. We compared optimised(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the mechanism of norcantharidin (NCTD)-induced SMMC-7721 hepatoma cell apoptosis. METHODS SMMC-7721 cell growth inhibition was measured by the MTT method. Apoptosis was detected by Annexin V/propidium iodide staining. The mitochondrial membrane potential was measured by flow cytometry. Western blot analysis was used to evaluate(More)
BACKGROUND Measurement of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) protein in the serum of metastatic breast cancer patients has previously been reported, but there are no consistent data to support the clinical utility of serum HER2 extracellular domain for patients with early stage breast cancer. We aimed to evaluate the correlation between serum(More)
Peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) carries a poor prognosis with conventional treatment. We retrospectively analyzed data from 45 patients with PTCL who received high-dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (HDT/ASCT) from 1990 to 2008 in our center. Eighteen patients underwent HDT/ASCT in complete remission to induction chemotherapy (CR1), and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the feasibility and efficacy of rituximab combined with high-dose chemotherapy supported by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in patients with aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). METHODS Twenty-eight patients with aggressive B-cell NHL (22 newly diagnosed, 6 relapsed) were enrolled in this(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the overall survival (OS) of patients with advanced lung adenocarcinoma in China before and after the approved use of gefitinib, and analyze clinical factors that may affect OS. METHODS Clinical data of 558 patients with advanced lung adenocarcinoma who received chemotherapy from January 2002 to December 2010 were retrospectively(More)
Fibrin deposition and remodelling of the extracellular matrix are important early steps in tumour metastasis. The D-dimer value is an indicator of intravascular fibrin formation and degradation. Thus, the D-dimer value may be a predictor of the malignant involvement of lymph nodes in operable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. The study comprised(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the mutations of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) in tumor tissue and pleural effusion in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, and to analyze the relationship between EGFR mutations and the clinicopathologic characteristics. METHODS Two-hundred and forty-one cases of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumor(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) is effective in the prophylaxis and management of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, but requires daily administration because of its short half-life. Pegylated rhG-CSF (PEG-rhG-CSF) is a long-acting reagent that permits less frequent injection. This study was to(More)
