The aim of this study was to investigate expression of CD147 and MMP-9 in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) so as to determine whether these two proteins may be correlated with poor prognosis of TNBC patients. We examined the expression levels of the CD147 and MMP-9 in 127 patients with TNBC and 30 patients with mammary gland fibroma using(More)
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a particular type of breast cancer which is characterized by its biological aggressiveness, worse prognosis, and lack of prognostic markers or therapeutic targets in contrast with hormonal receptor-positive and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive (HER2+) breast cancers. We aimed to evaluate survivin and(More)
Cryptosporidium and Giardia infections are common causes of diarrhea worldwide. To better understand the transmission of human cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis in Henan, China, 10 Cryptosporidium-positive specimens and 18 Giardia-positive specimens were characterized at the species/genotype and subtype levels. Cryptosporidium specimens were analyzed by DNA(More)
In order to investigate the prognostic value of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC), the blood cells from 98 MBC patients and 60 controls were evaluated by RT-PCR to detect the presence of markers EpCAM, CK19, and hMAM. Peripheral blood was obtained from all patients with MBC before any systemic therapy.(More)
The objectives of this study are to explore the clinical features and treatment outcomes and to investigate the correlation between microvessel density (MVD) and survival in patients with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL). We retrospectively analyzed clinical and follow-up data of 31 patients treated in two hospitals during 1995-2009 histologically(More)
Choroidal melanoma is the most common intraocular malignancy and can be fatal in half of the patients because of metastatic disease. Metastasis of choroidal melanoma to the omentum is extremely rare and, to our knowledge, no such case has ever been described in the literature. Here we present a 41-year-old Chinese man with an omental metastasis, 5 years(More)
We aimed to investigate risk factors of local and distant recurrence in small-sized, node negative breast cancer in women <35 years in a Chinese cohort. Between January 1994 and January 2007, 107 patients with pathologically confirmed small-sized (⩽1 cm), node negative breast cancer who did not receive neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy were included. The(More)
