GSE99424 KH-type splicing regulatory protein (KHSRP) is involved in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma progression through regulating a subset of microRNAs
Series Type : Expression profiling by array ; Non-coding RNA profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiensThis SuperSeries is composed of the SubSeries listed below.
Literature has shown that aberrantly expressed microRNAs may have implications in certain cancers. A wealth of studies signal potential prognostic role of microRNA-21 in GIT cancers. This meta-analysis quantitatively determines prognostic significance of circulating microRNA-21 in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and colorectal carcinoma (CRC).
We report a 57-year-old Japanese male with esophageal carcinosarcoma with histopathological diversities. The patient complained of dysphagia. Endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract revealed a mass in the lower esophagus just above the esophagogastric junction. Pathological diagnosis of the biopsy was poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma/undifferentiated carcinoma. Preoperative chemotherapy was performed with poor response. Post-operative analyses revealed that the chest CT showed the appearance of mineralization after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Surgery revealed a mass in the lower esophagus invading the esop...

We present our radiographic findings on 18F-FDG PET/CT in a case of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma with a sequestrum in the skull metastasis.
AbstractBackgroundGeriatric Nutritional Index (GNRI) was shown to be closely associated with nutrition-related complications and mortality in elderly hospitalized patients. Impact of GNRI on postoperative outcomes in surgically treated esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients has not been evaluated extensively.MethodsA total of 240 patients with ESCC who underwent radical esophagectomy with two- or three-field lymphadenectomy between April 2000 and April 2012 were included in this retrospective study. GNRI formula was as follows: 1.489 × albumin (g/dl) + 41.7 ×&thin...

CONCLUSIONS: Lowly expressed CD82/KAI1 in ESCC was significantly associated with the pathological stage, distant metastasis and poor prognosis of ESCC patients. CD82/KAI1 may inhibit the malignant progression of ESCC by interacting with TGF-β1. PMID: 30280774 [PubMed - in process]
