PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate safety and effectiveness of CT-guided percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) in 47 patients with medically inoperable stage I peripheral non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS From February 2008 to October 2012, 47 patients with stage I medically inoperable NSCLC were treated in 47 MWA sessions. The clinical(More)
To verify whether microwave ablation (MWA) used as a local control treatment had an improved outcome regarding advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) when combined with chemotherapy. Thirty-nine patients with histologically verified advanced NSCLC and at least one measurable site other than the ablative sites were enrolled. Primary tumors underwent MWA(More)
There is wide concern about polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) because of their carcinogenic and mutagenic potential. The coking industry is an important source of PAHs. In this study, 36 arable soil samples, a sensitive medium from the perspective of food safety and health, were collected from one of the largest coke production bases in China. The(More)
The aim of the study was to determine survival benefit of the microwave ablation (MWA)/chemotherapy combination compared with chemotherapy alone. Patients with untreated, stage IIIB or IV NSCLC and at least one additional measurable site other than the ablative site were enrolled. They were divided into MWA/chemotherapy group and chemotherapy group. The(More)
To verify the association between EGFR status and clinical response to microwave ablation (MWA) and survival. NSCLC patients with known EGFR status and treated with MWA in combination with chemotherapy were retrospectively enrolled in the study. A total of 61 patients were recruited. EGFR mutations were found in 28 patients (39.4 %), and were more common in(More)
This study aimed to analyze the expression, clinical significance of B cell translocation gene 1 (BTG1) in hepatocellular carcinoma, and the biological effect in its cell line by BTG1 overexpression. Immunohistochemistry and Western blot were used to analyze BTG1 protein expression in 70 cases of hepatocellular cancer and 32 cases of normal tissues to study(More)
The embryogenesis period is critical for epigenetic reprogramming and is thus of great significance in the research field of poultry epigenetics for elucidation of the trends in DNA methylation variations during the embryonic development of birds, particularly due to differences in embryogenesis between birds and mammals. Here, we first examined the(More)
The Apolipoprotein (Apo) family is implicated in lipid metabolism. There are five types of Apo: Apoa, Apob, Apoc, Apod, and Apoe. Apoe has been demonstrated to play a central role in lipoprotein metabolism and to be essential for efficient receptor-mediated plasma clearance of chylomicron remnants and VLDL remnant particles by the liver. Apoe-deficient(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death around the world. Percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) is an emerging treatment strategy for medically inoperable early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In this study, we investigated the association of MWA and serum angiogensis promoters VEGF and MMP-9 in these patients subgroup. (More)
The non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients that experienced good clinical response to epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (EGFR-TKIs) will ultimately develop acquired resistance. This retrospective study was performed to explore the potential survival benefit of microwave ablation (MWA) therapy in epidermal growth factor receptor(More)
