The nuclear export protein chromosomal region maintenance/exportin 1/Xpo1 (CRM1) is involved in the nuclear export of proteins and messenger RNAs and, thus, mediates the subcellular distribution of important molecules. Osteosarcoma is a ubiquitous and highly aggressive malignant bone tumor. The expression of CRM1 protein in human osteosarcoma has not been(More)
AIM To perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of published clinical trials to determine incidence rate and overall risk of hypertension with vandetanib in cancer patients. METHODS A comprehensive literature search for studies published up to March 2012 was performed. Summary incidence rates, relative risk (RR), and 95% confidence intervals (CI)(More)
PURPOSES To gain a better understanding of the overall incidence and risk of hypertension in cancer patients who receive pazopanib and to compare the differences in incidence among sorafenib, sunitinib, and pazopanib. METHODS Several databases were searched, including PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane databases. Eligible studies were phase II and III(More)
The present study was designed to determine whether the expression of chemokine receptor CXCR4 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is correlated with the extent of metastasis and the survival of patients with osteosarcoma. Using tissue microarrays, we analyzed the expression of CXCR4 and VEGF in tumor tissues collected from 56 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND The use of vascular-endothelial growth factor (VEGF) antibody bevacizumab is associated with an increased risk of gastrointestinal (GI) perforation, but the incidence and risk of GI perforation associated with vascular endothelial growth factor tyrosine-kinase inhibitors (VEGFR-TKIs) has not been well described. We conduct a systematic review and(More)
PURPOSE Pancreatic cancer is a highly aggressive malignant tumour with poor prognosis. The median survival is only 6 months. This study investigated the prognostic value of nuclear export protein chromosomal region maintenance/exportin 1/Xpo1 (CRM1) expression in pancreas cancer. METHODS CRM1 expression was detected, by Western blot, in pancreatic tissue(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor (VEGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have been widely used in advanced cancers. Concerns have arisen regarding the risk of venous thromboembolism with the use of these drugs. Currently, the contribution of VEGFR-TKIs to venous thromboembolism is still unknown. We performed a meta-analysis to determine the(More)
OBJECTIVES Docetaxel and paclitaxel show significant clinical activity in metastatic breast cancer (MBC) and have been approved for MBC by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but it is still unclear whether a paclitaxel-based regimen improves outcomes over a docetaxel-based regimen in patients with MBC. We therefore performed a meta-analysis of(More)
OBJECTIVE The prognostic role of survivin in colorectal carcinoma remains controversial. This meta-analysis aimed to explore the association between survivin expression and survival outcomes in patients with colorectal carcinoma. METHODS A comprehensive literature search for relevant studies published up to April 2013 was performed using PubMed, MEDLINE(More)
BACKGROUND Combining targeted therapy has been extensively investigated in previously treated advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but it is still unclear whether combining targeted therapy might offer any benefits against standard monotherapy with erlotinib. We thus performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to compare the efficacy(More)
