Erythropoietin-producing hepatoma (EPH) receptors are considered the largest family of receptor tyrosine kinases and play key roles in physiological and pathologic processes in development and disease. EPH receptors are often overexpressed in human malignancies and are associated with poor prognosis. However, the functions of EPH receptors in(More)
This study aims to investigate the expression and significance of EphA2 and EphrinA-1 in human gastric adenocarcinoma progression and prognosis. The expression of EphA2 and EphrinA-1 was detected in the cell lines and tissues of gastric adenocarcinoma. Different expression levels of EphA2 and EphrinA-1 were found in two cell lines. The expression of EphA2(More)
In this study, we aimed to establish a platinum-based chemotherapy response and toxicity prediction model in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. 416 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 185 genes were genotyped, and their association with drug response and toxicity were estimated using logistic regression. Nine data mining techniques(More)
Although t(11;18)(q21;q21), t(1;14)(p22;q32), and a few other genetic mutations are specific markers for the Helicobacter pylori (HP)-independent status of gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma, the molecular mechanisms responsible for HP-independence of gastric MALT lymphoma without such translocations and mutations remain(More)
A number of epidemiological studies have explored the association between lycopene or lycopene-rich food intake and the risk of colorectal cancer, but the results of these studies have not been consistent. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies published in the PubMed and EMBASE databases to quantitatively assess the association(More)
We conducted this meta-analysis to explore the association between passive smoking and the risk of colorectal cancer. A literature search of online databases, including MEDLINE, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and Web of Science was performed up to June 30, 2015. A fixed-effects meta-analysis using Stata 12.0 was carried out to estimate the relative risks(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the change of caspase-3 activity on the neoadjuvant chemotherapy-induced apoptosis by hydroxycamptothecin (HCPT) with 5-fluorouracil (5-Fu)/leucovorin (CF) in large-intestinal carcinoma, and to explore its mechanism. METHODS HCPT 100 mg/dt-5, 5-Fu 500 mg/dt-5 and CF 200 mg/dt-5 were administered intravenously to 20 pre-operation(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expressions of homeobox transcription factor-2 (CDX(2)) and E-cadherin and their relations to the clinicopathological characteristics of gastric carcinoma. METHODS Immunohistochemistry was performed on 83 human gastric carcinoma specimens and 40 normal gastric mucosa specimens for examining the expressions of CDX(2) and(More)
