Synchronous triple squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus
ConclusionIn presence of squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus, propedeutics should be carefully performed in order to verify the occurrence of other synchronous tumors in the esophagus and other organs, mainly head and neck and bronchial regions.

In this report, we looked at opioid medication use following discharge after radical prostatectomy. We found that 77% of opioid pain medication prescribed was unused, with 84% of patients using less than half of their prescription. Prescribing more opioids was associated with greater use; only 9% of patients appropriately disposed of leftover medication.

CONCLUSIONS: MiR-124 down-regulation was associated with renal cancer cell OS-RC-2 invasion enhancement. Over-expression of miR-124 attenuated OS-RC-2 cell invasion by down-regulating STAT3 and MMP-9. PMID: 30338828 [PubMed - in process]
We examined the clinical significance of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) in limb salvage treatment of osteosarcoma and its effect on the Glutaminase 1 gene (GLS1) expression. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 278 patients admitted to Qianfoshan Hospital Affiliated to Shandong University with osteosarcoma were randomly divided into the study group and the control group. Patients in the study group had 3-4 courses of cisplatin, ifosfamide, and adriamycin (DIA) chemotherapy before surgical excision, while no chemotherapy was used in the control group before the surgery. RESULTS: GLS1 expression in the study group decreased, the d...
CONCLUSIONS: We demonstrated that three-miRNA signature could be a potential biomarker for predicting clinical outcomes for BRCA patients. PMID: 30338807 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Guo SJ, Zeng HX, Huang P, Wang S, Xie CH, Li SJ Abstract OBJECTIVE: Recently, studies have identified that microRNAs (miRNAs) are novel regulators for gene expression in tumor progression including breast cancer. The aim of the study is to investigate the clinical significance and underlying functions between miR-508-3p expression and triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) development. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Quantitative Real-time PCR (QRT-PCR) was performed to determine the expression of miR-508-3p in 54 pairs of TNBC specimens and adjacent non-tumor tissues. The association between miR-508-3p expression...
CONCLUSIONS: The present study indicated that LINC01426 functioned as a tumor promoter and it might be a potential biomarker and therapeutic target in glioma. PMID: 30338804 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: We showed that lowly expressed microRNA-203 could promote the invasion and inhibit apoptosis of laryngeal cancer cells via inhibiting LASP1. PMID: 30338803 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: MiR-30e-5p was lowly expressed in NPC by targeting USP22, suggesting that miR-30e-5p could be used as a potential therapeutic target for NPC. PMID: 30338802 [PubMed - in process]
