Plasma YKL-40 and NGAL are useful in distinguishing ACO from asthma and COPD.

Asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) overlap (ACO) is characterized by the coexistence of features of both asthma and COPD and is associated with rapid progress and a poor prognosis. Thus, the early recognition of ACO is crucial.

Accuracy of interleukin-27 assay for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy: A PRISMA-compliant meta-analysis.

The concentration of interleukin-27 (IL-27) in pleural effusions was found to be increased in tuberculous pleurisy and several studies have investigated the diagnostic value of IL-27 for tuberculous pleural effusions (TPEs), but the results varied a lot. We conducted the present study to comprehensively evaluate the diagnostic value of IL-27 for TPE.

A Huge Mass in a Boy's Chest: An Unusual Case of Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma.

CRTC2 promotes non-small cell lung cancer A549 migration and invasion in vitro.

CRTC2 is highly expressed in lung cancer and contributes to lung cancer pathogenesis; however, whether CRTC2 promotes lung cancer metastasis remains unknown. In the present study, we investigated the role of CRTC2 in lung cancer metastasis in vitro.

Primary clear cell carcinoma of the trachea: A CARE-compliant case report.

Primary clear cell carcinoma of the lung is a rare condition, and presentation as an endotracheal lesion is even more unusual. In this report, we present a patient with clear cell carcinoma occurring in the trachea, which obstructed the tracheal lumen and lead to the respiratory distress.

Diagnostic accuracy of tumor necrosis factor-alpha assay for tuberculous pleurisy: A PRISMA-compliant meta-analysis.

The diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy is difficult and traditional methods are not always helpful. Many studies have focused on the tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) assay in pleural effusion for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy, but the results remain controversial. This meta-analysis was conducted to determine the overall diagnostic accuracy of TNF-α.

Overexpression of estrogen receptor beta is a prognostic marker in non-small cell lung cancer: a meta-analysis.

Expression of estrogen receptor beta (ERβ) is a potentially interesting prognostic marker and therapeutic target in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although the expression of ERβ has been reported to correlate with better prognosis of NSCLC in most literatures, some controversies still exist. Since the limited patient numbers within independent studies, here we performed a meta-analysis to clarify the correlations between ERβ expression and prognosis in NSCLC.

WWP2: a multifunctional ubiquitin ligase gene.

The ubiquitin-proteasome system plays an important role in various celluar processes. WWP2, a recently identified ubiquitin E3 ligase, has been proved a multifunctional gene by degradation a series of targets via ubiquitin-dependent proteasome system, including PETN, Smads, Oct4, EGR2, TIRF and so. Hereafter, we reviewed the recent research process about the function of WWP2.

Prognostic value of CD44 variant exon 6 expression in non-small cell lung cancer: a meta-analysis.

CD44v6 (CD44 variant exon 6) is the chief CD44 variant isoform regulating tumor invasion, progression, and metastasis. The prognostic value of CD44v6 expression in non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been evaluated in many studies, but the results have remained controversial. Thus, we performed a meta- analysis of currently available studies to investigate the prognostic value of CD44v6 expression in NSCLC patients and the relationship between the expression of CD44v6 and clinicopathological features.

Prognostic value of CD44 expression in non-small cell lung cancer: a systematic review.

CD44 is a potentially interesting prognostic marker and therapeutic target in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although the expression of CD44 has been reported to correlate with poor prognosis of NSCLC in most literatures, some controversies still exist. Since the limited patient numbers within independent studies, here we performed a meta-analysis to clarify the correlations between CD44 expression and prognosis and clinicopathological features in NSCLC.
