The chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) cell therapy is a newly developed adoptive antitumor treatment. Theoretically, CAR-T cells can specifically localize and eliminate tumor cells by interacting with the tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) expressing on tumor cell surface. Current studies demonstrated that various TAAs could act as target antigens for CAR-T(More)
Lung cancer causes the most number of deaths from cancer. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), including squamous cell carcinoma, large cell carcinoma, and adenocarcinoma, is responsible for more than 80% of primary lung cancer cases. As metastasis is the main cause of death, understanding the mechanisms underlying NSCLC metastasis are essential for(More)
BACKGROUND The SIX family homeobox genes have been demonstrated to be involved in the tumor initiation and progression, but their clinicopathological features and prognostic values in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have not been well defined. We analyzed relevant datasets and performed a systemic review and a meta-analysis to assess the profile of SIX(More)
Cancer immunotherapy is the most exciting advancement in cancer therapy. Similar to immune checkpoint blockade and chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR-T), bispecific antibody (BsAb) is attracting more and more attention as a novel strategy of antitumor immunotherapy. BsAb not only offers an effective linkage between therapeutics (e.g., immune effector(More)
Immunotolerance is one of the hallmarks of malignant tumors. Tumor cells escape from host immune surveillance through various mechanisms resulting in tumor progression and therapeutic resistance. Interlukin-6 is a proinflammatory cytokine involved in many physiological and pathological processes by integrating with multiple intracellular signaling pathways.(More)
This network meta-analysis was conducted to assess whether the efficacy of surgery with adjuvant therapies, including radiotherapy (RT+S), chemotherapy (CT+S), and chemoradiotherapy (CRT+S) have better performance in esophageal cancer treatment and management. PubMed and EMBASE were used to search for relevant trials. Both conventional pair-wise and network(More)
Recent studies have shown that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play pivotal roles in the initiation and progression of cancer, including esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). The lncRNA HOX transcript antisense RNA (HOTAIR) was reported to be dysregulated and correlated with the progression of ESCC. However, the biological role and the underlying(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the potential risk factors of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in the Chinese population. METHODS A matched case-control study was designed for the study. Patients with AAA administrated in the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou University from January 2005 to December 2007 were included in the study. Sex and age-matched volunteers(More)
MicroRNA-29 (miR-29) family is involved in various types of cancer regulation. Although miR-29 family was shown to play an inhibitory role in tumorigenesis, the effect of miR-29a expression on schwannoma cells still remains unclear. In this study, we aimed to explore the role of miR-29 family in schwannoma. The expressions of miR-29a, miR-29b, and miR-29c(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate transauricular digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as an alternative to conventional intra-arterial DSA for rabbit abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). MATERIALS AND METHODS AAA models were created in 8 New Zealand white rabbits by sewing vein patch. The diameters of aortic arteries were measured by DSA via ear vein(More)
