Non-small cell lung carcinoma
Glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) and X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 (XRCC1) genetic variations may influence the efficacy of chemotherapy in various cancers. We investigated the possible roles of GSTP1 Ile105Val and XRCC1 Arg194Trp, and Arg399Gln gene polymorphisms in the prognosis of advanced non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) patients with cisplatin-based chemotherapy.
In this study, we analyzed the association between serum leptin levels and non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). By examining English and Chinese databases, we identified potential relevant studies for statistical analysis. Human-associated case-control studies evaluating the association between serum leptin levels and NSCLC according to the random-effect model were retrieved and extracted data were statistically analyzed.
We studied the expression level of myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88) in non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) and normal paracancerous tissues, to determine its relationship with clinical pathological characteristics and prognosis. In total, 82 NSCLC patients who had received surgical treatment in our hospital between September 2008 and December 2013 were selected for this study. Another 82 normal paracancerous lung tissue samples were used as controls. All patients had complete clinical records, and they were followed-up for 5 years.
