Human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) heavily endangers human heath worldwide. HCC is one of most frequent cancers in China because patients with liver disease, such as chronic hepatitis, have the highest cancer susceptibility. Traditional therapeutic approaches have limited efficacy in advanced liver cancer, and novel strategies are urgently needed to(More)
Aberrant JAK/STAT3 pathway has been reported to be related to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in many cell lines. In this study, a double-regulated oncolytic adenovirus vector that can replicate and induce a cytopathic effect in alpha-fetoprotein (AFP)-positive HCC cell lines with p53 dysfunction was successfully constructed. Two therapeutic genes,(More)
Cancer-targeting dual-gene virotherapy (CTGVT-DG) is an important modification of CTGVT, in which two suitable genes are used to obtain an excellent antitumor effect. A key problem is to join the two genes to form one fused gene, and then to clone it into the oncolytic viral vector so that only one investigational new drug application, instead of two, is(More)
Cancer Targeting Gene-Viro-Therapy (CTGVT) is a promising cancer therapeutical strategy that strengthens the anti-tumour effect of oncolytic virus by expressing inserted foreign anti-tumour genes. In this work, we constructed a novel adenoviral vector controlled by the tumour-specific survivin promoter on the basis of the ZD55 vector, which is an E1B55KD(More)
AIM The tumor suppressor in lung cancer-1 (TSLC1) is a candidate tumor suppressor of lung cancer, and frequently inactivated in primary non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In this study, we investigated the effects of TSLC1 mediated by a dual-regulated oncolytic adenovirus on lung cancer, and the mechanisms underlying the antitumor actions. METHODS The(More)
PD-L1, also known as CD274, plays a vital role in tumor cell related immune escape. It can be expressed on the cell surface of many solid tumors (Brahmer et al., 2012) and inhibits T cell proliferation and cytokine production by binding to the Tcell surface receptor programmed death 1 (PD-1) or B7-1 (McClanahan et al., 2015). In 2013, targeting PD-1/ PD-L1(More)
Neuroglobin (Ngb) is well known as a physiological role in oxygen homeostasis of neurons and perhaps a protective role against hypoxia and oxidative stress. In this study, we found that Ngb is expressed in rat heart tissues and it is related to isoproterenol induced cardiac hypertrophy. Moreover, overexpression or knock-down of Ngb influences the expression(More)
GOLPH2 (also called GP73) is a Golgi glycoprotein, which has been identified as a novel tumor marker upregulated in various cancers, including prostate cancer (PCa). GD55 is a novel GOLPH2-regulated oncolytic adenovirus that exhibits a strong killing effect on hepatoma cells. Here, we investigate the antitumor effect of GD55 on prostate cancer stem cell(More)
