High expression of Toll-like receptor 4/myeloid differentiation factor 88 signals correlates with poor prognosis in colorectal cancer
Background:The Toll-like receptor (TLR) 4 signalling pathway has been shown to have oncogenic effects in vitro and in vivo. To demonstrate the role of TLR4 signalling in colon tumourigenesis, we… Expand
Phosphorylation, but not overexpression, of epidermal growth factor receptor is associated with poor prognosis of non-small cell lung cancer patients.
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is commonly overexpressed in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and its tyrosine kinase phosphorylation is thought to be an ideal target in the treatment of… Expand

Screening for basal marker expression is necessary for decision of therapeutic strategy for triple-negative breast cancer.
BACKGROUND Triple-negative breast cancer (estrogen receptor-negative, progesterone receptor-negative and Her2-negative) can be classified into two subtypes: basal and non-basal phenotype. Among these… Expand
Mechanisms of generation of oxygen radicals and reductive mobilization of ferritin iron by lipoamide dehydrogenase.
The oxidase reaction of lipoamide dehydrogenase with NADH generates superoxide radicals and hydrogen peroxide under aerobic conditions. ESR spin trapping using 5,5-dimethyl-1-pyrroline-N-oxide (DMPO)… Expand
So-called mesothelial/monocytic incidental cardiac excrescences obtained during valve replacement surgery: report of three cases and literature review
Abstract We present three cases of so-called mesothelial/monocytic incidental cardiac excrescences (MICE) of the heart and a brief review of related literature. Case 1 was a 51-year-old woman who… Expand
