CypA is the most important member of Cyclophilins. It is a widely expressed protein in nature possessing PPIase and chaperone activities which help the precise folding of protein. Also, it is involved in immunosuppression, inflammation and the balance of cholesterol. As the understanding of CypA function has deepened, people began to realize that there might exist a relationship between CypA and cancer. Lung cancer is the first carcinoma which was found as expressing high level of CypA. CypA plays the roles in increasing proliferation, antiapoptosis, invasion and metastasis in lung cancer. The study of CypA may open a new window for the early diagnosis, prognosis and novel therapeutic drugs targeting.

    Introduction: We report exploratory gene-expression profiling data from a single-arm Phase-II-study in patients with non-squamous (ns)NSCLC treated with pemetrexed and cisplatin. Previously disclosed results indicated a significant association of low thymidylate-synthase (TS)-expression with...

    Background and objective cyclin D1 is a member of the cyclin family, and it has been proven that it plaied an important role in tumorigenesis, invasion and metastasis. We performed a retrospective study on the cyclin D1 expression in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) according to the clinical...

    Cutaneous metastases of lung tumors are occurring in 1-12% of cases. High prevalence of lung cancer increases the likelihood of finding these changes in clinical practice. They are usually in the form of a firm, mobile and painless nodule on the head, neck and chest, and their appearance is a...

    Of pulmonary adenocarcinomas, about 25-30 % of cases is of a mucinous type. Mucinous adenocarcinomas are regarded as more aggressive compared to their non-mucinous counterparts. Invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma, colloid, and enteric adenocarcinomas are variants within adenocarcinomas. We...
