Cyclin D1 (CCND1), a key regulator of cell cycle progression, is overexpressed in many human cancers, including breast cancer. However, the impact of CCND1 overexpression in these cancers remains unclear and controversial. We conducted a systematic literature search in PubMed and EMBASE with the search terms "cyclin D1", "CCND1", "breast cancer", "prognosis", and potential studies for analysis were selected. Studies with survival data, including progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS) or metastasis-free survival (MFS), were included in this meta-analysis. A total of 33 studies containing 8,537 cases were included. The combined hazard risk (HR) and its 95 % confidence interval (CI) of OS, PFS and MFS were 1.13 (95 % CI 0.87-1.47; P = 0.35), 1.25 (95 % CI 0.95-1.64; P = 0.12), and 1.04 (95 % CI 0.80-1.36; P = 0.76), respectively, for primary breast cancer patients with tumors exhibiting CCND1 overexpression. Interestingly, the impact of CCND1 expression on OS was a 1.67-fold (95 % CI 1.38-2.02; P = 0.00) increased risk for ER-positive breast cancer patients. However, CCND1 overexpression exhibited no association with the PFS or OS of patients who received epirubicin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy, for which the P values were 0.63 and 0.47, respectively. In summary, CCND1 overexpression impacts the prognosis of ER-positive breast cancer patients, but not patients with unselected primary breast cancer or patients treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of intra-articular injection of infliximab in a rabbit model of osteoarthritis. In 30 New Zealand white rabbits, the cruciate ligaments and medial menisci were resected using the Hulth technique. Eight weeks postsurgery, the animals were randomly divided into three groups, and each group was given monthly intra-articular injections (0.5 ml) of 10 mg/ml infliximab, 20 mg/ml infliximab, or saline, respectively. After 3 months, the results were assessed by macroscopic observation, histological evaluation, and measurement of the levels of interleukin-1β, tumor necrosis factor-α, and nitric oxide in the synovial fluid. In the two groups of rabbits administered infliximab (10 or 20 mg/ml), the pathological changes were more attenuated than in the group administered saline. Mankin scores in the rabbits administered infliximab 10 mg/ml (2.7±0.9) or infliximab 20 mg/ml (2.4±0.7) were significantly lower than in the control group (6.4±1.2) (p<0.05). The tumor necrosis factor-α and nitric oxide contents of the synovial fluid were also decreased significantly in the rabbits administered infliximab at both concentrations compared with the saline-injected rabbits (p<0.05). Administration of infliximab did not change the levels of interleukin-1β in the synovial fluid. Similar results were obtained for all analyses with the two concentrations of infliximab tested. This study demonstrates that intra-articular injections of infliximab can protect against the development of experimentally induced osteoarthritis. © 2012 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.

AIM: To retrospectively evaluate our experience with the diagnosis and surgical resection of esophageal gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs). METHODS: Between January 2003 and August 2014, five esophageal GIST cases were admitted to our hospital. In this study, the hospital records, surgery outcomes, tumor recurrence and survival of these patients were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS: The median age of the patients was 45.6 years (range: 12-62 years). Three patients presented with dysphagia, and one patient presented with chest discomfort. The remaining patient was asymptomatic. Four patients were diagnosed with esophageal GISTs by a preoperative endoscopic biopsy. Three patients underwent esophagectomy, and two patients underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. The mean operating time was 116 min (range: 95-148 min), and the mean blood loss was 176 mL (range: 30-300 mL). All tumors were completely resected. The mean length of postoperative hospital stay was 8.4 d (range: 6-12 d). All patients recovered and were discharged successfully. The median postoperative follow-up duration was 48 mo (range: 29-72 mo). One patient was diagnosed with recurrence, one patient was lost to follow-up, and three patients were asymptomatic and are currently being managed with close radiologic and clinical follow-up. CONCLUSION: Surgery is the standard, effective and successful treatment for esophageal GISTs. Longterm follow-up is required to monitor recurrence and metastasis. © The Author(s) 2015.

E-cadherin is a 120-KD transmembrane calcium-dependent cell adhesion protein that has been demonstrated drownregulated in a large amount of invasive tumors. However, its effect on the prognosis of esophageal cancer (EC) remains controversial. All the relevant English articles that reported survival data or clinicopathological parameters were enrolled in this meta-analysis. A total of 24 studies, including 2691 cases, were included in this study. Twelve studies containing 1669 cases were enrolled to synthesize with hazard ratio (HR) and its 95% confidence interval (CI). The pooled HR for all 12 studies enrolled in this meta-analysis was 1.33 (95% CI 1.16-1.52; z = 3.99, P = 0.00). When the study measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay is excluded, the pooled HR-evaluated E-cadherin to reduce the expression in EC, and in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma was 1.39 (95% CI 1.22-1.58; z = 5.08, P = 0.00) and 1.38 (95% CI 1.21-1.56; z = 4.87, P = 0.00), respectively. The risk of reduced E-cadherin expression on poor differentiation degree was 1.636 (95% CI 1.33-2.02). The pooled odds ratio of reduced E-cadherin expression on deeper tumor invasion, lymph node metastasis, and higher clinical stage were 2.63 (95% CI 1.75-3.94), 1.77 (95% CI 1.06-2.97), and 3.39 (95% CI 1.85-6.23). Reduced E-cadherin expression detected by immunohistochemistry could be a valid prognostic marker in patients with EC, especially in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Reduced E-cadherin expression is significantly associated with poorer differentiation degree. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. and the International Society for Diseases of the Esophagus.

Objective The main objective of this study was to observe whether synovial fluid aspiration of the knee joint compared to no aspiration, before and after 5 weekly injections of intra-articular hyaluronan, provides an improvement in knee pain and physical function. Design Patients were randomized to an arthrocentesis group (n = 92) or a nonarthrocentesis group (n = 88). In the arthrocentesis group, knee joints were maximally aspirated before each hyaluronan administration. In the nonarthrocentesis group, synovial fluid was not removed. Hyaluronan was injected into the knee joints once a week for 5 weeks. Patients were followed up for 25 weeks. Outcome measures included patient pain (using the 100-mm visual analog scale [VAS] during a 50-foot walking test), Western Ontario McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) function scores, and overall effectiveness evaluated by patients and investigators on a scale of 1 to 6. Results The arthrocentesis group showed significantly greater improvement from baseline to week 25 in VAS pain (P > 0.001) and WOMAC function scores (P > 0.001) than the nonarthrocentesis group. However, the differences of patient and investigator assessment of effectiveness did not achieve significance. Conclusions Synovial fluid drainage before injection of intra-articular hyaluronan significantly improved VAS pain and WOMAC function scores in patients with knee osteoarthritis, however, the differences of patient and investigator assessment did not achieve significance. © 2015 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation and agreement of spot urine protein/creatinine (P/C) ratio with 24 h proteinuria in patients with lupus nephritis (LN) under different scores of activity index (AI). Methods: In total, 90 pairs of 24 h urine and spot urine samples from 90 patients with biopsy-proven LN were analyzed. The correlation and agreement between the two sample types were assessed by Pearson correlation and intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC) using mixed model for repeated measurements, respectively. Results and conclusions: Overall, 24 h proteinuria correlated strongly with the spot urine P/C ratio (r=0.671, p<0.001) with a good agreement (ICC=0.656, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.52-0.76). Subgroup analyses revealed that the correlation remained high in all groups (r=0.825, p<0.001; r=0.567, p=0.001; r=0.686, p=0.020), the agreement in group A (low AI) was good (ICC=0.824, 95% CI: 0.70-0.89), but in group B (middle AI) and group C (high AI), the agreements were weak (ICC=0.503, 95% CI: 0.19-0.72; ICC=0.532, 95% CI: 0.06-0.84). Our work suggests that over the range of a higher AI, however, correlation was present but agreement was poor. © The Author(s), 2015.

While all mechanisms that contribute to the pathogenesis of coronary artery calcification (CAC) are unknown, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) may be involved in this process in maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between ACE2 and CAC in patients on MHD therapy. Ninety patients on MHD therapy were involved in this prospective study. CAC was quantified by CAC score (CACs) using the Agatston method and a multi-slice CT scanner. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression were used to analyze the association between ACE2 and CACs. In the univariate analysis, CACs positively correlated with ACE2 (r=0.666, P<0.001). After adjusting for age, sex, smoking, hypertension, body mass index, diabetes mellitus, and hyperlipidemia, ACE2 levels continued to significantly and independently predict the presence of CAC. ROC curve analysis showed that the serum ACE2 level can predict the extent of CAC. These findings indicate that elevated serum ACE2 may be involved in vascular calcification in patients receiving MHD therapy. © International Society for Apheresis, Japanese Society for Apheresis, and Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy.

The function of FAM9C encoding a testis-exclusively expressed and nuclear-localized protein remains unknown. In the present study, we evaluated the role of FAM9C in human hepatocellular carcinoma. We found that among three FAM9 family members, only FAM9C was frequently upregulated in HCC specimens compared with that in corresponding adjacent non-cancer liver tissues. FAM9C was located in the nucleus of HCC cells, as shown by both western blotting and immumofluorescence assays. Significantly, FAM9C overexpression promoted proliferation, clonogenicity in an anchorage-dependent manner, in vivo tumorigenicity of YY-8103, and Huh-7 cells. In contrast, FAM9C knockdown suppressed proliferation, anchorage-dependent colony formation and in vivo tumorigenicity of QGY-7703, and BEL-7404 cells. However, FAM9C had no significant effects on cell cycle progression when FAM9C was stably overexpressed in Huh-7 cells or knocked down in BEL-7404 cells. Most importantly, FAM9C regulated activation of Akt and UV-induced apoptosis in HCC cells. FAM9C overexpression increased the phosphorylation levels of Akt and anti-apoptotic ability of Huh-7 cells, whereas endogenous FAM9C knockdown reduced the phosphorylated levels of Akt and anti-apoptotic ability of BEL-7404 cells. Furthermore, the anti-apoptotic function of FAM9C could be prevented when the PI3K-Akt pathway was in a loss-of-function caused by RNA interference against Akt or PI3K inhibitor LY294002 in HCC cells. Taken together, our data demonstrate that FAM9C as a novel cancer testis gene plays an anti-apoptotic role in human hepatocellular carcinoma through activating the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway, and serves as a promising target for HCC therapy.

Primary mediastinal liposarcomas are extremely rare. The current study reports the case of a 63-year-old man presenting with a primary liposarcoma arising from the posterior mediastinum. The patient reported a 6-month history of chest pain with increasing dyspnea for 2 months. Enhanced computed tomography revealed a 1016-cm mass in the posterior mediastinum. Other physical examinations were normal. Radical resection was performed under the agreement of patient. Subsequent pathological analysis indicated a liposarcoma. The patient recovered and was successfully discharged. However, at a follow-up examination 12 months after surgery, recurrence was identified in the anterior mediastinum. Therefore, the patient underwent surgery. The postoperative course was uneventful, however, there was evidence of disease recurrence 2 years after the second surgery. The patient refused any treatment and succumbed after 3 months.

The aim of this retrospective study is to review our experience in the diagnosis and role of thoracotomy for traumatic diaphragmatic hernia (TDH). Between January 2008 and June 2014, 23 patients from Yangzhou Medical College (Yangzhou China) and Lishui Center Hospital (Lishui China), who underwent thoracotomy for TDH, were analyzed. The clinical features, imaging findings, operative findings, and outcome of treatment in these patients are presented. There were 23 patients (18 males and 5 females) who underwent surgical procedures due to TDH. The median age of the patients was 43.2years (range, 15-68years). The cause of rupture was penetrating trauma in 1 (4.3%) patient and blunt trauma in 22 (95.7%) patients. The TDH was left sided in 21 patients and right sided in two patients. The diagnosis was made by chest X-ray (
