Krüppel-like factors (KLFs) are transcription factors containing three different C2H2-type zinc finger domains in their carboxy-terminal regions which have been identified to play important roles in a variety of cancers. However, little is known about KLF15 in lung adenocarcinoma (LAUD). Our study demonstrated that the expression levels of KLF15 were observably down-regulated in LAUD tissues compared to paired adjacent normal tissues. LUAD patients with low expression levels of KLF15 have worse prognosis than those with high expression levels of KLF15. KLF15 could suppress cell growth, which was partly via up-regulating CDKN1 A/p21 and CDKN2A/p15. Our findings suggested that KLF15 showed a significant role in LAUD progression and may shed light on a promising novel therapeutic target for blocking progression of LAUD.

Accumulating evidence has shown that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) had malfunctioning roles in the development of human cancers, especially lung adenocarcinoma (LC). In the present study, we aimed to...
In this study, we determined whether different subtypes of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon19 mutation are associated with the therapeutic effect of EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) ...
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide and has high rates of metastasis. Transforming growth factor beta-inducible protein (TGFBI) is an extracellul...
The proto-oncogene PIM1 plays essential roles in proliferation, survival, metastasis and drug resistance in hematopoietic and solid tumors. Although PIM1 has been shown to be associated with lymph nod...
Protease-activated receptor 2 (PAR2), a G protein-coupled receptor for trypsin, contributes to growth, anti-apoptosis, and migration in lung cancer. Given that PAR2 activation in airway epithelial cel...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether a DNA chip, designed by Medical Prognosis Institute (MPI), can provide an accurate prognosis for survival of NSCLC (adeno-, squamous and la...
In 2015-2016, 224,390 cases were newly diagnosed with lung cancer in USA. Of all the cases, 83% are non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Currently, the 5-year survival rate of NSCLC patient...
Every year in France, 30.000 deaths are due to lung cancer and 39.500 new cases of this disease are diagnosed (INCa 2014). Patients suffering from locally advanced non-small-cell lung canc...
To gather preliminary safety and outcome data for the multimodality treatment of lung adenocarcinoma in the setting of multifocal BAC.
This study was attempted to investigate the efficiency of NK cells immunotherapy on non-small cell lung cancer with and without EGFR mutation, and evaluated response rate (RR) and the prog...
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A lesion with cytological characteristics associated with invasive adenocarcinoma but the tumor cells are confined to the GLANDULAR EPITHELIAL CELLS of origin. Adenocarcinoma in situ of the CERVIX and the LUNG are the most common.
A basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper (bHLHZ) transcription factor and proto-oncogene protein that functions in cell growth and proliferation. In mammals, it is highly expressed in the brain during embryogenesis and is essential for brain development; it is not expressed in adult tissues. Amplification or overexpression of N-Myc occurs in at least 20% of tumors and is associated with a poor prognosis in cases of NEUROBLASTOMA; ALVEOLAR RHABDOMYOSARCOMA; SMALL CELL LUNG CARCINOMA; and neuroendocrine prostate cancer.
An epithelial neoplasm characterized by unusually large anaplastic cells. It is highly malignant with fulminant clinical course, bizarre histologic appearance and poor prognosis. It is most common in the lung and thyroid. (From Stedman, 25th ed & Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
