BACKGROUND Making a definitive preoperative diagnosis of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) found by CT has been a clinical challenge. We previously demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) could be used as biomarkers for lung cancer diagnosis. Here we investigate whether plasma microRNAs are useful in identifying lung cancer among individuals with CT-detected(More)
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) have emerged as a potential biomarker in the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and surveillance of lung cancer. However, CTC detection is not only costly, but its sensitivity is also low, thus limiting its usage and the collection of robust data regarding the significance of CTCs in lung cancer. We aimed to seek clinical(More)
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a clonal disorder characterized by excessive accumulation of myeloid cells in the peripheral blood. In the present study, to investigate the role of Hiwi in leukemogenesis, lentivirus-mediated Hiwi overexpression was performed in a CML cell line, K562 cells. Our data revealed that Hiwi protein expression was undetectable in(More)
Studies on associations between ataxia telangiectasia-mutated (ATM) polymorphisms and late radiotherapy-induced adverse events vary in clinical settings, and the results are inconsistent.We conducted the first meta-analysis following Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines to investigate the role of the ATM(More)
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematopoietic malignancy characterized by dysregulated growth and proliferation of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells in bone marrow and excessive expansion of hematopoietic compartments in peripheral blood. Expression deletion of Hiwi, a human Piwi homolog, has been reported to be implicated in leukemogenesis. We here(More)
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) relapses rapidly after the initial response to chemotherapy and shows drug-resistance. This study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of cellular immunotherapy (CIT) with autologous natural killer (NK), γδT, and cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells as maintenance therapy for SCLC patients. A pilot prospective cohort study(More)
The aim of the present study was to explore the preparation of arsenic trioxide (As 2 O 3) nanoparticles and examine the antitumor effects of these nanoparticles on NB4 cells. As 2 O 3 nanoparticles were prepared using the sol-gel method and characterized using transmission electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy. The results indicated that(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) of Fe(3)O(4) combined with cyclosporin A (CsA) on acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) in murine models. METHODS BALB/c mice preconditioned with total-body irradiation generated aGVHD and then were followed with(More)
