Introduction: Angiogenesis plays an important role in the biology of ovarian cancer. The clinical efficacy and side effects of bevacizumab, the vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor, on survival and toxicity in women with this ovarian cancer, was not conclusive. We performed this systematic review and meta-analysis in order to clarify the efficacy of bevacizumab combined with chemotherapy in the treatment of ovarian cancer. Materials and Methods: We searched the electronic database of MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials and CNKI for clinical controlled trials of comparing bevacizumab combined with chemotherapy and chemotherapy alone in the treatment of ovarian cancer. The primary outcomes of eligible studies included median progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS), and toxicities such as enterobrosis, hypertension, albuminuria, congestive heart failure (CHF), neutrophils, thrombosis, and bleeding. The Hazard ratio (HR) and relative risk were used for the meta-analysis and were expressed with 95% confidence intervals (CIs). All the statistical analyses were carried out by Stata 11.0 software (http://www.stata.com; Stata Corporation, College Station, TX, USA). Results: We included 5 studies with 1798 cases in the bevacizumab combined with the chemotherapy group and 1810 subjects in the chemotherapy alone group. The pooled results showed that bevacizumab + chemotherapy compared with chemotherapy alone can significant prolong the median PFS (HR, 0.64; 95% CI, 0.46-0.82; P < 0.05) but not the OS (HR, 0.84; 95% CI, 0.59-10.9; P > 0.05); the toxicity analysis showed that the enterobrosis, hypertension, albuminuria, neutrophils, thrombosis, and bleeding were significantly increased in the bevacizumab + chemotherapy group compared with chemotherapy alone (Pall < 0.05). But the CHF risk between the two groups was not statistical different (P > 0.05). Conclusion: Bevacizumab combined with chemotherapy prolonged the median PFS in patients with ovarian cancer but also increase the risk of developing enterobrosis, hypertension, albuminuria, neutrophils, thrombosis, and bleeding.

Several case-control studies indicated that XRCC3 genetic polymorphism (C722T) was associated with larynx cancer. The present study aimed to further evaluate the relation between the XRCC3 gene C722T polymorphism and larynx cancer. We selected five case-control studies related to XRCC3 gene C722T polymorphism and larynx cancer by searching PubMed, EMBase, Chinese CNKI, and Wanfang database. RevMan 5.0 software was used to perform the analysis. We directly utilized Q test and I2 test to test the heterogeneity between each study. We utilized the fixed effects model to merge the odds ratio (OR) and 95 % confidence interval. There were 1,507 larynx cancer patients and 3,623 cancer-free control subjects included in the present study. By meta-analysis, we did not find any association of XRCC3 gene C722T polymorphism with larynx cancer [OR=1.54, 95 % CI (0.77-3.08); P=0.22]. The present study indicated that XRCC3 gene C722T polymorphism was not associated with larynx cancer. © 2014 International Society of Oncology and BioMarkers (ISOBM).

Objective: To observe the curative effect of Yiwei Huayu Powder (YHP) and the expression of Th1/Th2 cytokines in patients with precancerous lesions of gastric cancer (PLGC). Methods: There were 100 diagnosed chronic atrophic gastritis (CAG) with gastric mucous membrane dysplasia (Dys) and/or intestinal metaplasia (IM) patients who were randomly divided into treatment group (50 cases) and control group (50 cases). The patients in the treatment group were administrated with YHP for three months, while the other one with Teprenone Capsules and folic acid. Results: Compared with the control group, the symptom scores of the patients in the treatment group decreased more obviously (P < 0.05). Compared with the control group, the pathological scores of the patients in the treatment group decreased more obviously (P < 0.05). After the treatment, the expression of the Th1 (IL-2, INF-γ) level escalated and the Th2 (IL-4, IL-6) level decreased in the treatment group, which existed an obvious difference compared to the control group (P < 0.05). Conclusion: YHP has played a therapeutic effect in patients with PLGC through intervening immune drift and inducing tumor cell apoptosis, thereby blocking or reversing the development of PLGC. © 2015, Editorial Office of Chinese Traditional and Herbal Drugs.
