Radiation resistance poses a major clinical challenge in cancer treatment, but little is known about how microRNA (miR) may regulate this phenomenon. In this study, we used next-generation sequencing to perform an unbiased comparison of miR expression in PC3 prostate cancer cells rendered resistant to fractionated radiation treatment. One miR candidate(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of the present study was to evaluate short- and mid-term outcomes of the left subclavian artery (LSA) chimney stent implantation (LSACSI) during thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), and to summarize our experience with this technique. METHODS From June 2010 to September 2012, 59 patients (49 men; mean age of 57.4 ± 13.3(More)
The HOX11/TLX1 (hereafter referred to as HOX11) homeobox gene was originally identified at a t(10;14)(q24;q11) translocation breakpoint, a chromosomal abnormality observed in 5-7% of T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemias (T-ALLs). We previously reported a predisposition to aberrant spindle assembly checkpoint arrest and heightened incidences of chromosome(More)
Photovoltaic (PV) technologies for solar energy conversion represent promising routes to green and renewable energy generation. Despite relevant PV technologies being available for more than half a century, the production of solar energy remains costly, largely owing to low power conversion efficiencies of solar cells. The main difficulty in improving the(More)
That tumors lack innervation is dogma in the field of pathology, but the molecular determinants of this phenomenon remain elusive. We studied the effects of conditioned media from Colon 26 and B16 mouse tumor cell lines on the axonal outgrowth and cellular differentiation of embryonic Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) mouse dorsal root ganglion cells.(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to introduce a novel strategy for thoracic endovascular aortic repair of Stanford B aortic dissection using two-stent graft implantation (TSI), in which the proximal stent and distal stent with different sizes are sequentially deployed, and to summarize our experience with this technique. METHODS A retrospective(More)
EphB4 receptor and its ligand ephrinB2 play an important role in vascular development during embryogenesis. In blood vessels, ephrinB2 is expressed in arterial endothelial cells (EC) and mesenchymal supporting cells, whereas EphB4 is only expressed in venous ECs. Previously, we reported that OP9 stromal cells, which support the development of both arterial(More)
Radioresistance remains a significant obstacle in the treatment of Prostate Cancer (PCa). To simulate the clinical scenario of irradiation resistance (IRR), we created DU145-IRR PCa cell lines by treatment with 2 Gy daily IR for 59 fractions. DU145-IRR cells acquired an aggressive phenotype as evidenced by increased clonogenic survival, tumorigenic(More)
Viral fulminant hepatitis (FH) is a severe disease with high mortality resulting from excessive inflammation in the infected liver. Clinical interventions have been inefficient due to the lack of knowledge for inflammatory pathogenesis in the virus-infected liver. We show that wild-type mice infected with murine hepatitis virus strain-3 (MHV-3), a model for(More)
Most cancer patients are treated with radiotherapy, but the treatment can also damage the surrounding normal tissue. Acute skin damage from cancer radiotherapy diminishes patients’ quality of life, yet effective biological interventions for this damage are lacking. Protecting microvascular endothelial cells from irradiation-induced perturbations is emerging(More)
