Ras homolog family member C (RHOC) is important during the progression of several types of cancer, including prostate, breast and hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the function of RHOC in cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCC), a highly recurrent and metastatic carcinoma with poor prognosis, remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate the(More)
Anginex is an artificial synthetic small molecule β-sheet-forming peptide shown to have anti-angiogenesis and antitumor effects in various solid tumors. However, its molecular mechanism remains largely unclear and efficient delivery methods for anginex remains to be developed. We report on the development of recombinant adeno-associated virus(More)
Purpose: We conducted a meta-analysis to systematically assess the prognostic and clinicopathological value of programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) expression in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Methods: We searched PubMed, Embase and Web of Science to screen the literature for relevant studies up date to September 29, 2016. The associations of PD-L1(More)
PURPOSE Programmed death 1 (PD-1) receptor and its ligand, programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1), play critical roles in the immune invasion of various tumors. This study aimed to explore the clinical significance of PD-L1/PD-1 expression in the progression of pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs). METHODS The expression of PD-L1 and PD-1 in 80 patients(More)
The present study assessed the role of metastasis-associated protein 1 (MTA1) in epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and metastasis in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells using a normal lung epithelium cell line, three NSCLC cell lines, a mouse NSCLC model, and 56 clinical NSCLC samples. We observed that MTA1 overexpression decreased cellular(More)
HOXD10, a key regulator of cell-differentiated phenotype maintainence, has been demonstrated to be involved in the tumorigenesis of many human malignacies. However, the status of HOXD10 expression and its biological function in cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCC) remain to be clarified. In the present study, we investigated the clinical significance and(More)
A novel molecular classification of gastric cancer by the Asian Cancer Research Group (ACRG) is a potential advance in diagnosis and treatment, and it helps to determine prognosis. The use of immunohistochemistry (IHC) rather than gene expression analysis to determine tumor subtypes was evaluated with the aim of determining the feasibility of using the ACRG(More)
