Adrenocortical carcinoma; Founder effect; Missense mutation; p.R337H; Prognosis

The germline R337H mutation of the TP53 gene has been associated with the development of many tumor types. This systematic review of literature investigated the association between the R337H mutation and the patients’ family history and its predictive and prognostic value in cancer. Data were collected from articles archived in the PubMed, LILACS, MEDLINE, IBECS, and SciELO databases ... more

MicroRNA-218; Pancreatic cancer; Prognosis

microRNA-218 (miR-218) is a vertebrate-specific miRNA that plays a crucial role in tumorigenesis and tumor progression. This study analyzed the miR-218 expression level and clinical significance in pancreatic cancer. One hundred and seven pairs of pancreatic cancer and adjacent normal tissues were analyzed by quantitative reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. The correlation between ... more

Biomarker; Cutaneous melanoma; MicroRNA-106b; Prognosis

MicroRNA-106b (miR-106b) is overexpressed in various types of cancers and is associated with the regulation of carcinogenic processes. However, its clinical significance in cutaneous melanoma has not been reported. qRT-PCR was performed to examine the expression of miR-106b in 15 cases of dysplastic nevi, 17 cases of melanoma metastases, and 97 cases of primary cutaneous melanoma tissue ... more

Biomarker; Bladder cancer; MicroRNA-100; Prognosis

We investigated the clinical significance and prognostic value of microRNA-100 (miR-100) in bladder cancer. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction was used to analyze the expression of miR-100 in 92 pairs of human bladder cancer and adjacent normal tissue samples. Overall survival (OS) curves were plotted using the Kaplan-Meier method and were evaluated for statistical ... more

The aim of this study was to explore the correlation between the expression levels of Gli1 and p53 in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and its pathological significance. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) was employed to measure the expression level of Gli1 and p53 in 85 sets of paraffin-embedded PDAC and corresponding para-carcinoma tissue specimens. The relationship between these results ... more

Gene polymorphism; Osteoarticular tuberculosis; Prognosis; Tumor necrosis factor-α

This study investigated the association of tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α)-308, -238, and -863 polymorphisms with osteoarticular tuberculosis (OA-TB) prognosis in a Hebei population. Genomic DNA was extracted from venous blood samples of 120 OA-TB patients and 100 healthy volunteers. TNF-α-308, -238, and -863 were analyzed by PCR-restriction ... more

Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), which play a crucial role in the tumor microenvironment, can be divided into M1 and M2 phenotypes, these phenotypes may exert opposite effects on the prognoses of patients with gastric cancer (GC). The association between TAMs and GC is contentious. Thus, a meta-analysis of 12 studies (incorporating 1388 patients) retrieved from the Cochrane Library, PubMed ... more
