BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, reliable markers allowing prediction of patient survival at the time of initial diagnosis are still lacking. Copy number alterations (CNAs) in tumor tissue DNA have been associated with tumorigenesis and malignant progression. We aimed at identification of(More)
Background Interleukin-6 (IL-6), a multifunctional cytokine, plays an important role in the development of ischemic heart disease (IHD), and DNA hypomethylation of 2 CpGs, located downstream in the proximity of the IL-6 gene promoter, has been associated with risk factor for IHD. This study was to examine the association of blood leukocyte DNA methylation(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the factors that determine disease outcome in patients with drainage of aortic root abscess caused by infective endocarditis. Data from 27 patients who were treated for aortic root abscess due to infective endocarditis were analyzed. Nineteen patients survived for more than 3 years after discharge, seven patients(More)
The prognosis of lung cancer remains poor and clinically applicable prognostic markers have not yet been satisfactory identified. Several chromosomal copy number alterations (CNAs) have been associated with metastasis, relapse, and survival of patients with lung cancer; however, no study has focused exclusively on identifying CNAs at a gene level. The aim(More)
