Oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) remains a public health problem in many countries, especially in emerging and developing countries. Epidemiology of OSCC is characterized by marked differences in prevalence between countries/regions/ethnical groups. The highest incidence in the world is reached by populations living in specific areas of(More)
Whether the heterogeneity in tumor cell morphology and behavior is the consequence of a progressive accumulation of genetic alterations or an intrinsic property of cancer-initiating cells established at initiation remains controversial. The hypothesis of biological predetermination in human cancer was proposed many years ago and states that the biological(More)
Immune response-related genes play a major role in colorectal carcinogenesis by mediating inflammation or immune-surveillance evasion. Although remarkable progress has been made to investigate the underlying mechanism, the understanding of the complicated carcinogenesis process was enormously hindered by large-scale tumor heterogeneity. Development and(More)
This study investigated six cases of septicemia in young crested ibises (Nipponia nippon). These birds all died with similar clinical signs, including sudden death, anorexia, diarrhea, and lameness. Immediately after death, the birds were necropsied; a blood sample was taken from heart and tissues were sampled from liver, lung, spleen, peritoneal mucus, and(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an established therapy for Barrett's esophagus. Preliminary reports, limited by low patient numbers, also suggest a possible role for RFA in early esophageal squamous cell neoplasia (ESCN). The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of RFA for early ESCN(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the risk factors contributing to the progression-free survival rate of patients undergoing endoscopic non-curative resection. METHODS Clinicopathological data of patients with early colorectal carcinoma and intraepithelial neoplasia undergoing endoscopic resection in our department from January 2009 to January 2015 were collected.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of radiofrequency ablation(RFA) combined with endoscopic resection(ER) for eradicating widespread early non-flat type esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and precancerous lesions. METHODS Retrospective analysis was performed on the clinical data of 4 patients with early non-flat type ESCC and precancerous lesions(More)
In the first part of this review, some behavioural and environmental risk factors playing important roles in the development of Kazakh's oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) were presented. Although all individuals have been exposed to the same environment and share the same behaviour, some of them will not develop OSCC. Thus, gene susceptibility(More)
Endoscopic treatments for early esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and the esophageal neoplasm are two types: endoscopic resection (ER) and ablation. Resection enables evaluation of the lesion in the ER specimens, while ablation cannot. We sought to establish a pre-ER evaluated system with a diagnostic and staging accuracy similar to ER for the development(More)
Abstract—The output error of the globoidal cam mechanism can be considered as a relevant indicator of mechanism performance, because it determines kinematic and dynamical behavior of mechanical transmission. Based on the differential geometry and the rigid body transformations, the mathematical model of surface geometry of the globoidal cam is established.(More)
