BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The present study was designed to investigate the clinicopathological role of survivin-expressing circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and to determine whether the presence of survivin-expressing CTCs is an independent predictor of tumor recurrence following curative resection of gastric cancer. METHODS This study included 98 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with glioblastoma multiforme, the most aggressive form of glioma, have a median survival of approximately 12 months. Calcium (Ca(2+)) signaling plays an important role in cell proliferation, and some members of the Ca(2+)-permeable transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) family of channel proteins have demonstrated a role in the(More)
The purposes of this study were to determine the expression profiles of microRNA-34a (miR-34a) in human gastric cancer cell line (SGC-7901) and cisplatin-resistant cell lines (SGC-7901/DDP), and to establish the correlation between miR-34a expression profile and the sensitivity of human gastric cancer cell to cisplatin-based pattern, thereby providing new(More)
BACKGROUND Icotinib, an oral EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor, had shown antitumour activity and favourable toxicity in early-phase clinical trials. We aimed to investigate whether icotinib is non-inferior to gefitinib in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer. METHODS In this randomised, double-blind, phase 3 non-inferiority trial we enrolled patients(More)
The efficacy of chemotherapy for advanced gastric cancer with palliative intent compared with supportive care alone is now widely accepted. However, the best choice of chemotherapy regimen for patients with advanced gastric cancer is still a matter of controversy and requires further investigation. This study is performed to evaluate the efficacy and safety(More)
Channels formed by the canonical transient receptor potential (TRPC) subfamily of proteins are Ca(2+)-permeable, nonselective cation channels with various functions. Through a phospholipase C (PLC)-dependent mechanism TRPC6, a member of TRPC subfamily, can be activated by receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) or G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR), which are(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and toxicity of the combination of paclitaxel and nedaplatin as a first-line chemotherapy for patients with advanced esophageal cancer. METHODS Patients with advanced esophageal cancer received 175 mg/m(2) of paclitaxel over a 3 h infusion, followed by nedaplatin 80 mg/m(2) in a 1 h infusion on(More)
We aimed to investigate the expression of microRNA-34a (miR-34a) in human gastric cancer cells and to evaluate the effects of miR-34a, acting via its gene survivin, on gastric cancer cell HGC-27 to provide potential new strategies for treating gastric cancer. In vitro cultures of the human gastric cancer cell lines MGC80-3, HGC-27, NCI-N87, and SGC-7901 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the combined anti-tumor effect of radiation therapy and gene-targeted suppression of tumor neovasculature in lung adenocarcinoma in vivo, and to explore the feasibility of micro-PET/CT in dynamic evaluation of treatment effectiveness. METHODS Thirty 5-6-week old male BALB/c nude mice were used in this study. The mouse models of(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the feasibility of laparoscopic resection with intraoperative radiotherapy for local advanced rectal cancer in an Asian man. PATIENT AND METHODS A 55-year-old man with adenocarcinoma of the rectum presented at Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China. The tumor, with a size of 5 × 5 cm, was(More)
