MiR-124 Inhibits Growth and Enhances Radiation-Induced Apoptosis in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer by Inhibiting STAT3.
 

Author(s): Mengjie Wang, Bi Meng, Yangchen Liu, Jingwen Yu, Qiaoyun Chen, Yangchen Liu

Journal: Cell. Physiol. Biochem.. 2017 ;44(5):2017-2028.

 

A growing body of evidence indicates that the abnormal expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) play an important role in sensitizing the cellular response to ionizing radiation (IR). The aim of this study was to investigate whether the expression of miR-124 correlated with radiosensitivity ...

Plasma Levels of IL-8 and TGF-β1 Predict Radiation-Induced Lung Toxicity in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: A Validation Study.
 

Author(s): Shulian Wang, Jeff Campbell, Matthew H Stenmark, Jing Zhao, Paul Stanton, Martha M Matuszak, Randall K Ten Haken, Feng-Ming Spring Kong

Journal: Int. J. Radiat. Oncol. Biol. Phys.. 2017 07;98(3):615-621.

 

We previously reported that the combination of mean lung dose (MLD) and inflammatory cytokines interleukin-8 (IL-8) and transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) may provide a more accurate model for radiation-induced lung toxicity (RILT) prediction in 58 patients with non-small cell ...
