Drug resistance is still one of the key causes of death in epithelial ovarian carcinoma (EOC) patients, however there are very few strategies to reverse chemoresistance. Here we try to clarify whether and how miR-9 takes part in the regulation of paclitaxel sensitivity. miR-9 expressions in EOC cells and tissues were detected by Realtime PCR. The target of(More)
The increase of CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells in patients with ovarian carcinoma has been verified. Here we investigated the effects of supernatant derived from ovarian carcinoma cell SKOV3 on peripheral regulatory T cells. Supernatant from SKOV3 was collected and fractionated into three different molecular weight fractions (MWFs). The proliferation of the(More)
