The aim of this study is to investigate whether metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT-1) can be used as a potential therapy target for human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. MALAT-1 expression levels were detected in 137 paired EC samples and adjacent nonneoplastic tissues. Human esophageal carcinoma cell lines EC9706 and KYSE150(More)
We conducted a perspective study to investigate whether the expression of excision repair cross-complementing 1 (ERCC1), xeroderma pigmentosum group G (XPG), breast cancer 1 (BRCA1), and ribonucleotide reductase M1 (RRM1) is correlated with clinical outcome of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Patients with histologically confirmed inoperable stages IIIB(More)
It has been well accepted that p53 overexpression is associated with advanced stages of cancer. However, the prognostic role of p53 overexpression in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains unclear. To investigate the prognostic role of p53 overexpression in patients with ESCC, a retrospective cohort study of 136 ESCC patients was carried out. The(More)
BACKGROUND Runt-related transcription factor 3 (RUNX3) is a member of the runt-domain family of transcription factors. Emerging evidence indicates that RUNX3 is a tumor suppressor gene in several types of human cancers including esophageal cancer. However, the association between RUNX3 promoter methylation and esophageal cancer remains unclear. Here we(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore the influencing factors of prognosis for recurrent and metastatic esophageal carcinoma, and to provide reference for clinical treatment for these patients. METHODS The clinicopathological and follow-up data of 247 patients with recurrent and metastatic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma after radical(More)
Crotoxin (CrTX) is a neurotoxin isolated from the venom of the South American rattlesnake. Previous studies demonstrated that CrTX was able to inhibit the activity of the growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase and that CrTX possesses potent antitumor activity when combined with Iressa, an epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor. The aim of the present(More)
A crucial step in the path to the malignant transformation of cells and tumor formation is immortalization, which essentially depends on telomere maintenance. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of telomerase in the progression of Barrett's esophagus. Telomerase activity was measured in Barrett's cells using(More)
