Prognostic and clinical significance of claudin-4 in gastric cancer: a meta-analysis

Background The current reports on the association of claudin-4 expression with gastric cancer outcome were inconsistent. Thus, we conducted a meta-analysis to assess the association of claudin-4 expression with the prognosis and clinical parameters more precisely. Methods Systematic searches on PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library prior to December 2014 were performed. The pooled...

Testicular yolk sac tumors in children: a review of 61 patients over 19 years

Background To describe 19 years of clinical experience managing pediatric patients with testicular yolk sac tumors at the Chongqing Medical University Affiliated Children’s Hospital. Methods This study involved a retrospective review of the records of 61 pediatric patients who presented with testicular yolk sac tumor at our institution between 1995 and 2014. Results All patients...

Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney: report of eight cases and literature review

Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney (MESTK) is the term given to a class of uncommon biphasic tumors of the kidney, with few reported cases. We describe eight cases of MESTK with detailed clinicopathological data and follow-up information. With this report, we hope to increase clinical awareness that MESTK should be considered as one of the possible diagnoses for...

Tea consumption and prostate cancer: an updated meta-analysis

Objectives Tea is supposed to have chemopreventive effect against various cancers. However, the protective role of tea in prostate cancer is still controversial. The aim of this study is to elucidate the association between tea consumption and prostate cancer risk by meta-analysis. Methods A total of 21 published articles were retrieved via both computerized searches and review...

Silencing of mutant p53 by siRNA induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in human bladder cancer cells

Background p53 is the most frequently mutated tumor-suppressor gene in human cancers. It has been reported that mutations in p53 result not only in the loss of its ability as a tumor suppressor, but also in the gain of novel cancer-related functions that contribute to oncogenesis. The present study evaluated the potential of silencing of mutant p53 by small interfering RNA in the...

Meta-analysis of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug intake and prostate cancer risk

Background Epidemiological studies of the association between nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) intake and the risk of prostate cancer still remain controversial. Therefore, we conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the potential association between NSAID intake and prostate cancer risk. Methods Eligible studies were retrieved by both computerized searches and reviews of...

RNAa-mediated overexpression of WT1 induces apoptosis in HepG2 cells

Aim Recent studies have reported that double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) can activate gene expression by targeting promoter sequence in a process termed RNA activation. The present study was conducted to evaluate the potential of WT1 induction by small activating RNA targeting the WT1 promoter (dsWT1) in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. Methods The human hepatocellular...
