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)
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)
The standard treatment for patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC) is still debated, and the available data on the benefit of irinotecan-containing regimen as first-line treatment for those patients are controversial. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to determine the survival benefits of(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and safety of epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor monotherapy (EFGR-TKIs: gefitinib or erlotinib) with standard second-line chemotherapy (single agent docetaxel or pemetrexed) in previously treated advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS We systematically searched for randomized clinical(More)
Extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcoma is a rare soft tissue sarcoma. Surgery is the cornerstone of the management of this tumour. The response rate to chemotherapy has been very poor; with the exception of one reported case which showed promising results, overall results are disappointing because no significant radiologic or clinical responses have been noted(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)
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)
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)
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)
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. Several databases were searched, including PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane databases. Eligible studies were phase II and III prospective clinical trials(More)
