MicroRNA-210 (miR-210) is a robust target for hypoxia-inducible factor, and its overexpression has been detected in a variety of solid tumors. However, the role of miR-210 in the development, progress...
Capecitabine is a 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) derivative that is widely used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. The plasma ratio of dihydrouracil (UH ) to uracil (Ura) is expected to gain relevance as a...
There is no single standard chemotherapy regimen for elderly patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC). A phase III trial has confirmed that both capecitabine monotherapy and capecitabine plus oxali...
/Aims. In cholangiocarcinoma, early metastatic spread via lymphatic vessels often precludes curative therapies. Cholangiocarcinoma invasiveness is fostered by an extensive stromal reaction, enriched i...
