OBJECTIVE Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients with truly chemosensitive disease still represent a minority among all TNBC patients. The aim of the present study is to identify microRNAs (miRNAs) that correlate with TNBC chemoresistance. METHODS In this study, we conducted miRNAs profile comparison between triple-negative breast cancer (TNBCs)(More)
PIWI-interacting RNA (piRNA) silences the transposons in germlines or induces epigenetic modifications in the invertebrates. However, its function in the mammalian somatic cells remains unknown. Here we demonstrate that a piRNA derived from Growth Arrest Specific 5, a tumor-suppressive long non-coding RNA, potently upregulates the transcription of tumor(More)
Gender differences in immune capabilities suggest that sex hormones such as estrogens were involved in the regulation of the immunocompetence. Numerous studies also suggest that plasmacytoid dendritic cells (PDCs) play a pathogenic role in SLE. However, it is unclear whether estrogen can modulate the function of PDCs to influence the development of SLE. In(More)
MOTIVATION The accurate prediction of disease status is a central challenge in clinical cancer research. Microarray-based gene biomarkers have been identified to predict outcome and outperform traditional clinical parameters. However, the robustness of the individual gene biomarkers is questioned because of their little reproducibility between different(More)
Atrophy of the cortical thickness and gray matter volume are regarded as sensitive markers for the early clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). This study aimed to investigate differences in atrophy patterns in the frontal-subcortical circuits between MCI and AD, assess whether these differences were essential for the pathologic basis of cognitive(More)
INTRODUCTION We analyzed the short-term efficacy of endovascular treatment for aortic diseases by summarizing all available published data on endovascular stent-graft treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA), type A aortic dissection (type A AD) and type B aortic dissection (type B AD) in China. METHODS We performed a(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest prognosis among all malignancies and is resistant to almost all current therapies. Attenuated Salmonella typhimurium strain VNP20009 has been deployed as powerful anticancer agent in a variety of animal cancer models, and previous phase 1 clinical trials have proven its safety profiles. However, thus(More)
