Single-nucleotide polymorphisms of stemness genes predicted to regulate RNA splicing, microRNA and oncogenic signaling are associated with prostate cancer survival.
Prostate cancer (PCa) is a clinically and molecularly heterogeneous disease, with variation in outcomes only partially predicted by grade and stage. Additional tools to distinguish indolent from aggressive disease are needed. ...
Genetic variants in the platelet-derived growth factor subunit B gene associated with pancreatic cancer risk.
(International journal of cancer, 2018-04)
The platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) signaling pathway plays important roles in development and progression of human cancers. In our study, we aimed to identify genetic variants of the PDGF pathway genes associated ...
Genetic variant of IRAK2 in the toll-like receptor signaling pathway and survival of non-small cell lung cancer.
(International journal of cancer, 2018-11)
The toll-like receptor (TLR) signaling pathway plays an important role in the innate immune responses and antigen-specific acquired immunity. Aberrant activation of the TLR pathway has a significant impact on carcinogenesis ...
An ERCC4 regulatory variant predicts grade-3 or -4 toxicities in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer treated by platinum-based therapy.
(International journal of cancer, 2018-03)
Platinum-based chemotherapy (PBC) in combination with the 3rd generation drugs is the first-line treatment for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC); however, the efficacy is severely hampered by grade ...
Genetic variants in RORA and DNMT1 associated with cutaneous melanoma survival.
(International journal of cancer, 2018-06)
Cutaneous melanoma (CM) is considered as a steroid hormone-related malignancy. However, few studies have evaluated the roles of genetic variants encoding steroid hormone receptor genes and their related regulators (SHR-related ...
Potentially Functional Variants of ATG16L2 Predict Radiation Pneumonitis and Outcomes in Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer after Definitive Radiotherapy.
(Journal of thoracic oncology : official publication of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, 2018-05)
INTRODUCTION:Autophagy not only plays an important role in the progression of cancer but is also involved in tissue inflammatory response. However, few published studies have investigated associations between functional ...
