BACKGROUND Nestin expression has been reported to be associated with the prognosis of many solid tumors including human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The present study aimed to identify the role, if any, of Nestin in the chemotherapeutic treatment of HCC. METHODS We determined Nestin expression in nine HCC cell lines and 220 tissue samples of advanced(More)
The role of bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP4), a crucial epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) mediator, in the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients heretofore has not been elucidated. The present study analyzed BMP4 expression in tumors and paired non-tumorous liver tissue and its correlation with clinicopathological characteristics(More)
Bone morphogenetic protein-4 (BMP4) plays a crucial role in carcinogenesis, but the effects and signaling mechanisms of BMP4 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are not clearly clarified. The present study aimed to identify the roles of BMP4 in the proliferation of human HCC. In this study, BMP4 expression and its correlation with clinicopathological(More)
Different wind power projects have different external economics level, the practical evaluation on which can provide reference for wind power projects selection and qualify the role of completed projects. In this paper, the external economies of wind power engineering projects were evaluated by employing VIKOR method. The basic theory of VIKOR method was(More)
