Although gross vascular invasion (VI) has prognostic significance in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who have undergone hepatic resection, few studies have investigated the relationship between gross VI and aberrant expression of microribonucleic acids (miRNAs and miRs). Thus, the objective of this study was to identify miRNAs selectively expressed in HCC with gross VI and investigate their prognostic significance.

Accumulating studies have focused on circulating microRNAs, which might be potential biomarkers for different malignancies. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of serum exosomal mic...
Hemorrhoid is a common and recurrent proctological disease, which is often accompanied by angiogenesis and edema. MicroRNAs in the DLK1-DIO3 imprinted clusters are involved in the development and path...
Dysregulation of microRNAs is a common mechanism in the development of lung cancer, but the relationship between microRNAs and expression subtypes in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is poorly explo...
MicroRNAs (miRNAs), as a family of non-coding RNAs, have opened a new window in cancer biology and transcriptome. It has been revealed that miRNAs post-transcriptionally regulate the gene expression a...
MicroRNAs (miRNAs, miRs) are small regulatory non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression by incomplete complementary attachment to the 3'UTR, 5'UTR, ORF and promoter regions of target mRNAs. We com...
Rapid and accurate assessment of radiation injury dose is the key to success in early treatment and an urgent issue to be solved in clinical medicine.Researches showed that the expression ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the level of expression of 4 circulating microRNAs in the serum using RT-PCR. A pilote study with cardiac transplant patients has shown that expres...
MicroRNAs are small molecules which have recently been discovered in cells. They are known to be responsible for the normal development of cells and when they are disrupted can contribute...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary liver cancer and is the third leading cause of cancer that related death in the worldwide. Although, current most of doctors and l...
Vascular endothelial growth factor is expressed in gastric cancer, and expression has been associated with more aggressive clinical disease. Vascular endothelial growth factor expression h...
A vascular endothelial cell growth factor receptor whose expression is restricted primarily to adult lymphatic endothelium. VEGFR-3 preferentially binds the vascular endothelial growth factor C and vascular endothelial growth factor D and may be involved in the control of lymphangiogenesis.
A vascular endothelial growth factor whose expression is found largely restricted to the GONADS; ADRENAL CORTEX; and PLACENTA. It has similar biological activity to VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR-A.
The original member of the family of endothelial cell growth factors referred to as VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTORS. Vascular endothelial growth factor-A was originally isolated from tumor cells and referred to as "tumor angiogenesis factor" and "vascular permeability factor". Although expressed at high levels in certain tumor-derived cells it is produced by a wide variety of cell types. In addition to stimulating vascular growth and vascular permeability it may play a role in stimulating VASODILATION via NITRIC OXIDE-dependent pathways. Alternative splicing of the mRNA for vascular endothelial growth factor A results in several isoforms of the protein being produced.
A TALE-type homeodomain protein and transcription factor that functions as a regulator of PAX6 PROTEIN expression and as an activator of PLATELET FACTOR 4 gene expression. It is essential for hematopoiesis, differentiation of MEGAKARYOCYTES, and vascular patterning. It may also have a role in the induction of myeloid leukemias.
Extracellular membrane vesicles generated by the shedding of CELL MEMBRANES blebs. Microparticles originating from PLATELETS; ENDOTHELIAL CELLS; and other cell types circulate in the peripheral blood and through the MICROVASCULATURE where larger cells cannot, functioning as active effectors in a variety of vascular processes such as INFLAMMATION; HEMOSTASIS; angiogenesis; and vascular reactivity. Increased levels are found following stimulation of bleb formation under normal or pathological conditions.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Vascular relates to blood vessels (Oxford Medical Dictionary) and can be used to describe the supply of blood, a disease affecting the blood vessels or molecules associated with these structures. For example, <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->atherosclerosis ...
