Epidermal Growth Factor-like repeats and Discoidin I-Like Domains 3 (EDIL3), an extracellular matrix (ECM) protein associated with vascular morphogenesis and remodeling, is commonly upregulated in multiple types of human cancers and correlates with tumor progression. However, its expression pattern and underlying cellular functions in pancreatic ductal(More)
Early diagnosis and treatment in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is still a challenge worldwide. The poor survival of PDAC patients mainly due to early metastasis when first diagnosed and lack of prognostic biomarker. Ribosomal protein L15 (RPL15), an RNA-binding protein, is a component of ribosomal 60S subunit. It was reported that RPL15 is(More)
AIM To provide more information and therapeutic methods about gastric neuroendocrine carcinomas (G-NECs) which occur rarely but are highly malignant and clinically challenging. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the clinicopathological characteristics, treatments, and prognosis of 43 G-NEC patients at our hospital between January 2007 and December 2014.(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remains one of the most aggressive and lethal malignancies. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a novel class of non-protein-coding transcripts that have been implicated in cancer biogenesis and prognosis. By repurposing microarray probes, we herein analysed the lncRNA expression profiles in two public PDAC microarray(More)
Dickkopf-1(DKK-1), the downstream target of β-catenin/T-cell factor, participates in a negative feedback loop in the Wnt signaling and reported as an important biomarker in many tumors. In this study, we analyzed the expression of DKK-1 in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) patients at both mRNA and protein levels. We used real-time PCR to detect the(More)
Bioinformatics is a cross subject of biological information processing. DNA sequence splicing is one of its research content. At present, most parallel algorithms are based on the operating environment of MapReduce. There is a complex process for reading and writing to hard disk, which lead to inferiority that the speed of the algorithm will be slow. In(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Desmoplasia and poor vascularity cause severe metabolic stress in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas (PDACs). Serotonin (5-HT) is a neuromodulator with neurotransmitter and neuroendocrine functions that contributes to tumorigenesis. We investigated the role of 5-HT signaling in the growth of pancreatic tumors. METHODS We measured the(More)
We have conducted a meta-analysis and systematic review to determine the overall survival, mortality rate, and complete resection rate of neo-adjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) compared with pancreaticoduodenectomy alone in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Whether neo-adjuvant CRT is beneficial in the treatment of resectable pancreatic cancer or not,(More)
Collagen triple helix repeat containing-1 (CTHRC1), a secreted protein, has been demonstrated as an oncogene in many types of human cancers including pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). However, little is known about the prognostic value of CTHRC1 in PDAC. In current study, we investigated the expression pattern and underlying clinical significance of(More)
