Lymph node micrometastases are associated with disease recurrence and poor survival for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer patients: a meta-analysis

Background We performed a meta-analysis to clarify whether the molecular detection of tumor cells or micrometastases in the lymph node (LN) indicates a high risk of disease recurrence and poor survival in negative pathologic lymph node status non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Methods A literature search was performed using relevant keywords. We searched relevant studies from ...

Junctional adhesion molecule-A, an epithelial–mesenchymal transition inducer, correlates with metastasis and poor prognosis in human nasopharyngeal cancer

Junctional adhesion molecule-A (JAM-A) is preferentially concentrated at tight junctions and influences epithelial cell morphology and migration. Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is the conversion process of epithelial cells into mesenchymal cells, and it plays an important role in the invasiveness and metastasis of various cancers. However, the role of JAM-A in ...

Identification and characterization of microRNAs related to salt stress in broccoli, using high-throughput sequencing and bioinformatics analysis

Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a new class of endogenous regulators of a broad range of physiological processes, which act by regulating gene expression post-transcriptionally. The brassica vegetable, broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica), is very popular with a wide range of consumers, but environmental stresses such as salinity are a problem worldwide in restricting its ...

Less Efficient Information Transfer in Cys-Allele Carriers of DISC1: A Brain Network Study Based on Diffusion MRI

Previous neuroimaging studies of brain networks have revealed less efficient information transfer in patients with schizophrenia. However, the underlying genetic basis remains largely unexplored. In this study, we investigated the brain anatomical networks of 278 healthy volunteers with different genotypes in the common missense variant (Ser704Cys) of the ...

DISC1 Ser704Cys impacts thalamic-prefrontal connectivity

The Disrupted-in-Schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) gene has been thought as a putative susceptibility gene for various psychiatric disorders, and DISC1 Ser704Cys is associated with variations of brain morphology and function. Moreover, our recent diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) study reported that DISC1 Ser704Cys was associated with information transfer efficiency in the brain ...

Radioactive 125I Seed Inhibits the Cell Growth, Migration, and Invasion of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma by Triggering DNA Damage and Inactivating VEGF-A/ERK Signaling

Although radiotherapy technology has progressed rapidly in the past decade, the inefficiency of radiation and cancer cell resistance mean that the 5-year survival rate of patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is low. Radioactive 125I seed implantation has received increasing attention as a clinical treatment for cancers. Vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A) is one ...

Impaired Resting-State Functional Integrations within Default Mode Network of Generalized Tonic-Clonic Seizures Epilepsy

Generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS) are characterized by unresponsiveness and convulsions, which cause complete loss of consciousness. Many recent studies have found that the ictal alterations in brain activity of the GTCS epilepsy patients are focally involved in some brain regions, including thalamus, upper brainstem, medial prefrontal cortex, posterior midbrain regions, and ...

The Effects of Gut Commensal Bacteria Depletion on Mice Exposed to Acute Lethal Irradiation

The prevention and management of bacterial infection are the mainstays of therapies for irradiation victims. However, worries about adverse effects arise from gut commensal flora depletion owing to the broad-spectrum antibiotics treatment. In the present study, we investigated the effects of gut bacteria depletion on the mice receiving total-body irradiation (TBI) at a single dose ...
