In China, alcohol consumption is increasing faster than anywhere else in the world. A steady increase in alcohol production has also been observed in the country, together with a rise in alcohol-related harm. Despite these trends, China's policies on the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages are weak compared with those of other countries in Asia.(More)
miR-320 expression level is found to be down-regulated in human colon cancer. To date, however, its underlying mechanisms in the chemo-resistance remain largely unknown. In this study, we demonstrated that ectopic expression of miR-320 led to inhibit HCT-116 cell proliferation, invasion and hypersensitivity to 5-Fu and Oxaliplatin. Also, knockdown of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS FOXQ1 overexpression has been reported to enhance tumor growth and invasion. However, the biological function of FOXQ1 and the mechanism underlying its upregulation in gastric cancer (GC) remain unknown. METHODS QPCR was used to detect the expression of miR-1271 and FOXQ1 in specimens from GC patients. FOXQ1-siRNA, and miR- 1271 mimics and(More)
Aberrant activation of the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway plays a major role in carcinogenesis and the progression of many malignant tumors, especially gastric cancer (GC). Some research has suggested that expression of the β-catenin protein is associated with clinicopathologic factors and affects the biological behaviors of GC cells. However, the(More)
Tripartite motif-containing 29 (TRIM29) belongs to TRIM family of transcription factors and may function as an oncogene or a tumor suppressor depending on the tumor types. Overexpression of TRIM29 is frequently observed in gastric cancer but the underlying mechanisms remain largely unknown. In the present study, we investigated the function of TRIM29 in(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the in vitro and in vivo antitumor effects of amarogentin in SNU-16 human gastric cancer cells as well as in nude mice xenograft model. The effects of this compound on cell apoptosis, cell cycle phase distribution and PI3K/Akt and m-TOR signalling pathways were also studied in detail. METHODS MTT assay was used to study the effect(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The prognosis of advanced gastric cancer (AGC) is poor. No standard chemotherapy regimens for AGC are available so far. Randomized studies have revealed that epirubicin plus oxaliplatin and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) (EOF) regimen could improve the response rate and prolong survival in patients with AGC. This study was to evaluate the(More)

The correct affiliation is "Department of Oncology, Shaoxing People's Hospital ,Shaoxing Hospital of Zhejiang University,(More)
Cullin 4A (CUL4A) overexpression has been reported to be involved in the carcinogenesis and progression of many malignant tumors. However, the role of CUL4A in the progression of gastric cancer (GC) remains unclear. In this study, we explored whether and how CUL4A regulates proinflammatory signaling to promote GC cell invasion. Our results showed that(More)
Imatinib mesylate, the first agent approved for the treatment of unresectable or metastatic gastrointestinal stromal tumor, is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting (KIT) and the platelet-derived growth factor receptor-α and -β. However, imatinib administration can be accompanied by various adverse events. Here we report a case of Lichenoid drug eruption(More)
