The objective of this study was to assess periostin expression in phenytoin-induced gingival enlargement (PIGE) tissues and to investigate the mechanisms underlying periostin expression. Human PIGE tissues were assessed using Masson's trichrome, with cell infiltration and changes in extracellular matrix composition characterized through labeling with antibodies to periostin, phospho-SMAD 3, TGF-β, as well as the macrophage markers CD68 and RM3/1. Using human gingival fibroblasts (HGFs) in vitro we examined the pathways through which phenytoin acts on fibroblasts. In PIGE tissues, which demonstrate altered collagen org...

CONCLUSIONS: High SOD2 expression can be predictive of a poor clinical outcome and be clinically useful in the follow-up of metastatic RCC. Therapeutics for metastatic RCCs require further improvement, such as supplementary administration of agents targeting mitochondrial SOD2. PMID: 29914010 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zhou J, Ge Y, Hu Y, Rong D, Fu K, Wang H, Cao H, Tang W Abstract Circular RNAs (circRNAs), which were recently discovered as a special class of endogenous non-coding RNAs, have recently shown huge capabilities as gene regulators in different species in a wide variety of organisms including viruses, plants, archaea and animals. These circRNAs mainly arise from exons or introns in different combinations by special selective splicing and are enriched in cytoplasm. Apart from that, circRNAs usually display patterns of cell-type, tissue-type and developmental-stage specific expression in eukaryotic transcriptom...

Authors: Liu D, Wang N, Sun Y, Guo T, Zhu X, Guo J Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analysis the expression of VEGF in gastric carcinoma cell and tumor tissue, our study determined the relationship between the expression of VEGF and tumor incidence, metastasis and prognosis in human gastric carcinoma. METHODS: Treatment of ZD6474 at dose of 30 μmol/L was performed in gastric carcinoma cell BGC823. qPCR and Western-blot were used to analysis the mRNA and protein expression of VEGF. MTT, wound healing and Transwell experiments were conducted to study the effect of VEGF on tumor incidence, metastasis and prognosis. ...

This study aims to investigate the role of miR-29a in regulating STAT3, as well as in Taxol resistance of nasopharyngeal carcinoma CNE-1 cells. Dual luciferase reporter gene assay showed a regulatory relationship between miR-29a and STAT3. Rhodamine 123 repository in CNE-1 and CNE1/Taxol drug resistant cells was measured together with the expression of miR-29a, STAT3, and p-STAT3. Flow cytometry was used to measure cell apoptosis and PCNA expression under Taxol treatment. CNE-1/Taxol cells were treated with miR-29a mimic and or si-STAT3, followed by measuring the expression of miR-29a, STAT3, and p-STAT3 and cell apoptosis...

Authors: Wang S, Cui S, Zhao W, Qian Z, Liu H, Chen Y, Lv F, Ding HG Abstract BACKGROUND: Circular RNAs (circRNAs) play an important role in pathogenesis and development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, circRNA expression profiles in hepatitis B Virus (HBV)-related HCC remain to be studied. METHODS: Total 13 HBV-related HCC patients were enrolled for study. Three HCC and 3 paired adjacent non-tumorous (NT) tissues from 3 patients were performed for microarray. Ten pairs of HCC tissues were used to verify the identified up-regulated and down-regulated circRNAs obtained from the microarr...

Authors: Ruggiero T, Pol R, Camisassa D, Simiele S, Giaccone L, Carossa S Abstract The purpose of the study is to evaluate the clinical effects of Mucosamin® (a spray preparation containing sodium hyaluronate combined with a pool of amino acids of precursor collagen, including L-Proline, L-Leucine, L-Lysine and glycine) on wound healing and pain management of oral mucositis after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The importance of professional dental hygiene by dental hygienist in reducing the severity of oral mucositis as unique therapy or in addition to therapy with Mucosamin® was also evaluated. O...
