v-akt Murine thymoma viral oncogene homolog (AKT) pathway is critically involved in cancer cell growth, invasion, and survival. We examined the correlation between the genetic variations in molecules of AKT pathway and clinical outcomes of gastric cancer. Six single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located in the four core genes of AKT pathway, namely the(More)
Interleukin-1β (IL-1β) has been implicated in the progression of gastric adenocarcinoma (GA); however, the molecular mechanisms of action of IL-1β in GA are poorly characterized. P38 and JNK are the major MAPK family members that regulate IL-1β signaling pathways. Here, we investigated the role of both p38 and JNK in IL-1β-induced GA cell migration,(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing evidence has demonstrated that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play essential roles in the occurrence and development of human cancers, including gastric cancer (GC). However, the functional and clinical significance of lncRNAs are still poorly understood. METHODS In this study, the expression of LncRNA HNF1A antisense RNA 1(More)
BACKGROUND Lymph node metastasis (LNM) is closely associated with poor prognosis in patients with resectable T2 stage gastric adenocarcinoma (RT2-GA). Preoperative blood neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been identified to be a very valuable predictor for prognosis in patients with diverse cancers. The aim of this investigation was to assess the(More)
BACKGROUND The single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs2072408 is located in an intron of the enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) gene. Its role in gastric cancer (GC) has not been determined. METHODS In the present study, the genotype of (EZH2) rs2072408 and the relationship of genotype with lymph node metastasis (LNM) and the invasive depth of gastric(More)
This study aims to examine the correlation between two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of apoptosis-related genes and clinical outcomes in gastric cancer. A total of 221 patients with stage T2 and T3 gastric cancer treated with postoperative chemotherapy between 2003 and 2008 were retrospectively collected in this study to explore the association of(More)
Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are implicated in a variety of cancers. However, the roles of circRNAs in gastric cancer (GC) remain largely unknown. In the current study, circRNAs expression profiles were screened in GC, using 5 pairs of GC and matched non-GC tissues with circRNA chip. Preliminary results were verified with quantitative PCR (qRT-PCR). Briefly,(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) is widely used as an inflammation-related cancer biomarker. However, since its prognostic importance in resected high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma (HGSC) is still unknown, we investigated the association between PLR and the prognosis in resected HGSC in this study. METHODS Details of 103 patients with HGSC(More)
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is an essential regulator and biomarker of several types of cancer. However, the association between its expression and prognosis in patients with resected T3 stage gastric adenocarcinoma (RT3-GA) remains to be determined. In total, 683 patients with resectable T3-GA who underwent surgery were retrospectively included(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1A (CDKN1A) and Cyclin D1 (CCND1) play essential roles in the regulation of cell cycle progression and are closely associated with human cancer. CDKN1A and CCND1 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been demonstrated to influence the prognosis in humans with different cancers. However, their roles in the(More)
