The article presents several studies related to cancer. First of all it provides a genetic analysis of the tylosis with oesophageal cancer gene region on 17Q25 chromosome. Secondly, the effect of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization on angiogenesis and the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in hepatocellular carcinoma is determined. The objective of the study is to investigate intratumor microvessel density, expression of VEGF in survival cancerous tissue.

    RNA interference is being developed to treat cancer. Although highly target specific, its use has been limited by its short duration of expression. To overcome this shortcoming, we constructed an oncolytic adenovirus (Ad)-based short hairpin RNA (shRNA) expression system (Ad-ΔB7-shVEGF)...
