Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most common primary malignant tumour of bone. Nearly 30-40% of OS patients have a poor prognosis despite multimodal treatments. Because the carcinogenesis of OS remains unclear, the identification of new oncogenes that control the tumourigenesis and progression of OS is crucial for developing new therapies. Here, we found that the(More)
PURPOSE To assess retrospectively the efficacy and safety of percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) combined with zoledronic acid (ZA) for the treatment of painful osteolytic spinal metastases from breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS PVP was performed in 43 patients with breast cancer and painful osteolytic spinal metastases; 126 vertebrae were treated. The(More)
BACKGROUND The significance of ezrin immunoexpression and prognosis for osteosarcoma is still controversial. The aim was to provide a meta-analysis for ezrin immunoexpression and prognostic features of osteosarcoma patients. METHODS A detailed search was made in MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Web of Knowledge for relevant original articles published in English;(More)
AIMS The objective of this study was to investigate the efficacy and toxic side effects of two combinations of methotrexate, cisplatin, doxorubicin and ifosfamide on treating Chinese osteosarcoma patients. METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted of 185 osteosarcoma patients treated with the four drugs mentioned above. A total of 93 patients(More)
CD133 and CD44 are commonly used markers of cancer stem cells (CSCs), which are characterized by their ability for self-renewal and tumorigenicity. However, the clinical value and significance of CD133 and CD44 in lung metastasis of osteosarcoma (OS) remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether CD133(+) CD44(+) cells mediates(More)
Ubiquitin carboxyl terminal hydrolase 1 (UCHL1), a member of the UCH class of DUBs, has been reported as either an oncogene or a tumor suppressor. However, the molecular mechanism underlying the biological function of UCHL1 in osteosarcoma is still unclear. This study was aimed at elucidating the roles of UCHL1 in regulating the biological behavior of(More)
The present study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). The study was carried out as a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled and paralleled clinical study. A total of 239 patients with CIPN were selected as the study subjects. Of the(More)
The prognoses for patients with relapsed and refractory osteosarcoma are poor and the optimal treatment strategy is still to be defined. We conducted this retrospective study to compare the feasibility and efficacy of pirarubicin-based chemotherapy with gemcitabine–docetaxel combination regimens for the salvage of these patients. The clinical data of 75(More)
AIM To investigate the feasibility and efficacy of cyclophosphamide (CTX)-hydroxycamptothecin (HCPT) as second-line chemotherapy on advanced Ewing's sarcoma. METHODS From April 2009 to November 2010, 27 patients with advanced Ewing's sarcoma who had progressive disease after the first-line chemotherapy regimen of vincristine, dactinomycin and(More)
Pirarubicin (THP) is a newer generation anthracycline anticancer drug with antineoplastic efficacy against numerous tumors. Few studies have reported its application and efficiency in anti-osteosarcoma chemotherapeutic strategies. Ninety-six non-metastatic extremity osteosarcoma patients treated with THP or doxorubicin (DOX) in combination with high-dose(More)
