The importance of apoptosis during the process of inhibiting tumorigenesis has been recognized. The role of BH3-only proapoptotic protein Bcl-2-associated death (BAD) in tumor growth remains controversial. The aim of this study was to explore the role of BAD in lung cancer cells. Our study showed that expression of BAD was upregulated in A549 cells by a(More)
CD4(+)CD25(+) regulatory T cell-mediated immunosuppression is one of the crucial mechanisms that tumor cells use to evade the immune system. The forkhead box P3 (FoxP3) gene regulates regulatory T-cell development and function and may modulate the susceptibility to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Because a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) within the(More)
Correspondence To the Editor: Meperidine, also known as pethidine, is one of the most commonly prescribed opioid analgesics. Meperidine exerts high central nervous system depressant effects through producing prolonged activation of opioid receptors (µ‑receptor). We described a rare case of generalized tonic–clonic seizures after intravenous (IV) injection(More)
We herein report an extremely rare case of pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis with a solitary enlarged inguinal lymph node. A 19-year-old man presented with a non-productive cough lasting for over a five-month period and an enlarged left inguinal lymph node that had persisted for four months. A histopathological study of the lymph node specimens found(More)
