    Objective To propose a method to calculate sample size for survival analysis in single-arm trials. Methods Through theoretical formula derivation, we provided sample size estimation method for survival analysis in single-arm trials. Monte-Carlo simulations using STATA software were conducted to obtain the empirical power, so as to verify the accuracy of the estimated sample size. Results Simulation results showed that, when α=0.025 and α=0.01, the power of the sample size calculated by the formula is in accordance with the predetermined power. Conclusions The formula of sample size estimation we proposed could achieve the predetermined power for survival analysis in single-arm trials. Findings of this study provide reliable basis for sample size estimation of early stage antineoplastic drug clinical studies.

    Nephrolithiasis is a common urologic disease, of which the prevalence has been increasing rapidly.Recent studies have shown that metabolic syndrome(MS) is associated with the formation and recurrence of nephrolithiasis.Metabolic syndrome includes hypertension,diabetes, obesity and so on. 24-hour urinalysis is the main basis of the metabolic evaluation of patients with nephrolithiasis. Recently, it has been reported that changes in calcium, citrate, uric acid, oxalate, phosphate and protein in the urine of patients with metabolic syndrome are related to the formation and recurrence of nephrolithiasis, in which insulin resistance plays an important role.

    Metastasis is one of the biological hallmarks of malignancy and the principal cause of death of patients.Recent years,metastatic potential is thought at least to be due to tumor heterogeneities which origin from the differences generated in the evolution process of cancer itself as well as host microenvironment.Derived from traditional theories,tumor heterogeneity includes more than gene mutations.The changes of non-genetic levels like epigenetic regulation and post-translational modification are widely considered.Based on the “seed and soil” theory about metastasis,this review summarizes the advances of studies in cancer metastasis from the perspective of evolution and heterogeneity,hoping to promote the study of metastasis and clinical control application.

    Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene (KRAS) mutation is one of the most common carcinogenic factors in a variety of tumors,which leads to the continuous activation of KRAS,while it in turn promotes cell proliferation and drives tumorigenesis.Although the exploration of targeted drugs targeting KRAS gene mutations has been a hot research topic for decades,it has not yet been developed to discover clinically effective drugs for KRAS gene mutations.Currently,the mechanisms of targeted therapy for KRAS gene mutation are mainly inhibiting the mutated KRAS genes directly,changing the KRAS membrane localization,inhibiting KRAS signaling pathways,and inhibiting KRAS mutant synergistic lethal genes.Here,we briefly review the progress of pharmacological strategies targeting KRAS mutated cancers.

    Objective  To compare the short-term safety and efficacy of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and microwave ablation (MWA) for treatment of large benign thyroid nodules. Methods  A total of 34 patients with large benign thyroid nodules were studied retrospectively, including 13 patients treated with ultrasound-guided RFA and 21 patients treated with MWA between Jun., 2016 and Feb., 2017 in Zhongshan Hospital. The thyroid function parameters, serum antibodies, complications and thyroid nodules volume reduction rate(VRR) were compared between the two groups during the follow-up. Results  There were no statistically significant differences (P0.05) among those patients before and after treatment in serum free triiodothyronine (fT3), free thyroxine (fT4), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), anti-thyroglobulin antibodies (TG-Ab) levels, and thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO-Ab). One patient in the MWA group had mild hoarseness after ablation and another patient in the RFA group had intraoperative hemorrhage for about 10 mL. There were no other complications such as neck scar, postoperative infection, skin burns, tracheal and esophageal injury. One day after the ablation, all nodules were showed hypoecho and contrast-enhanced ultrasound proved there was no blood supply. One month after treatment, no statistically significant difference was found in VRR between two groups (23.8% vs. 22.6%, P=0.127). Conclusions  RFA and MWA are safe and effective treatments for large benign thyroid nodules, and no significant difference was observed in short-term follow-up.

    Objective To observe common and individual morphological features of various apoptotic cells. Methods Apoptotic cell samples were prepared from organism tissues including rat ovarian follicle and retina, and from cell cultures including human bladder cancer cell line T24 and liver cancer cell line. The ultrastructure was observed under the electron microscope. The apoptotic photoreceptor cells in the rat retina were induced by alkylate, and those in the ovarian follicle happened physiologically. Results All the observed apoptotic cells showed cell body shrinkage, cytoplasm density increase and chromatin condensation, but their nuclear membrane, plasm membrane and organelles were intact. However, different apoptotic cells showed somewhat different chromatin condensation appearances. Some of them showed chromatin margination, some did a few chromatin blocks scattering in the nucleus, and others displayed a highly compact chromatin block occupying the whole nucleus. Conclusions It was observed that the chromatin condensation in apoptotic cells showed other appearances than the margination. It suggested that dark cells in a normal tissue and the pyknosis in a necrotic tissue should be carefully discriminated from apoptotic cells.

    Autophagy is a cellular degradation pathway in which damaged or superfluous proteins and organelles are cleared. Autophagy can also maintain homeostasis and viability of cells under metabolic stress by the recycling of these intracellular constituents. As to tumor cell with defect in apoptosis, autophagy limits its necrosis and inflammation, reduces the damage of genome and prolongs its survival under metabolic stress. Paradoxically, autophagy defect is also associated with carcinogenesis according to recent evidence. The research of autophagy has revealed the effect of autophagy on carcinogenesis and provides us a promising avenue for cancer therapy and prevention.

    Objective Study the hypotoxicity and tumor-targeting ability of genetically modified attenuated S.typhymurium VNP20009. Methods Non-tumor-bearing mice were infected intravenously with VNP20009 (case) or wild-type (control). Survival rate was observed; GFP-labeled VNP20009 and MFC murine gastric cancer cell lines labeled with RFP in the cytoplasm and GFP in the nucleus were established. The dual-color MFC cell lines in vitro and tumor-bearing (RFP-labeled MFC gastric cancer cell lines) mice were infected with GFP-labeled VNP20009. Growths of bacteria in vitro were observed under fluorescence microscopy. Growth of bacteria in vivo were observed under fluorescence microscopy to determine the extent of infection and cfu of normal tissues and tumors were determined by harvesting these tissues and homogenizing and planting supernatants on nutrient media. Results All mice infected with wild-type S.typhymurium expired by 4 days. In contrast, all mice infected with VNP20009 survived. The GFP-expressing VNP20009 grew in the cytoplasm of GFP-RFP-labeled MFC cells and caused nuclear destruction. In in vivo experiments, the number of bacteria had markedly regressed in the normal tissue. By day 15, GFP-labeled bacteria could no longer been seen. In contrast, the bacteria grew continuously in the MFC tumor. The tumor/liver bacteria ratios were 224:1 by day 4 and 1020:1 by day 6 after infection. Conclusions The genetically modified attenuated S.typhymurium VNP20009 has the very ability of tumor-targeting and hypotoxicity, which has great potential as a vector for cancer gene therapy.

    Tumor metastasis is mainly responsible for cancer mortality.It is promoted by both accumulation of intrinsic alterations and interaction of cancer cells with various stromal cells in tumor microenvironment.Tumor-infiltrating immune cells including tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs),myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) and regulatory T cells (Treg),have been shown to support immune suppression and the metastasis of tumor cells.The dissemination of tumor cells to distant organ sites necessitates a treacherous journey,which requires immune escape,pre-metastatic niche formation,tumor cell egress into blood circulation finally arrival at the target organ and persistent metastatic growth.Each step of tumor metastasis is fostered by the communication between tumor and immune cells.This review focuses on the interactions between tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating immune cells,and potential immune strategies.

    Mitochondria provide basic energy for the cell life activities. Electron transfer complexes in the inner mitochondrial membrane carry hydrogen and electronics to ATP enzyme complexes. This process is responsible for the energy and hydrogen ions across the membrane gradient cycle. The mitochondrial respiratort chain provides 95% of the energy to cell survival, which is mainly composed of 5 complex: NADPH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase, succinate-ubiquinone oxidoreductase, ubiquinone-cytochrome c reductase, cytochrome c oxidase and ATP synthase located on the mitochondrial membrane. We explicated in detail molecular structure, function and biological significance of mitochondrial complexes in present article.

    Objective  To explore the mediating effect of affect balance in the relationship between health condition and life satisfaction in long-lived elders. Methods  Overall 439 long-lived individuals (aged 95+ years) from the Rugao longevity cohort were included in the study. Health condition consisted of self-rated health and objective health (measured by disease severity). Life satisfaction and affect balance were measured by Life Satisfaction Index A (LSIA) Scale and Affect Balance Scale (ABS) respectively. Spearman rank correlation and structure equation modeling were  used for data analyses.Results  The correlations between objective health, self-rated health, affect balance and life satisfaction were all significant (all P<0.05). Objective health and self-rated health had insignificant direct effects on life satisfaction (β=0.02, P=0.791; β=0.16, P=0.153). Objective health and self-rated health showed significant indirect effects on life satisfaction through the mediating effect of affect balance (β=-0.14, P<0.05; β=0.45, P<0.001).Conclusions  Affect balance is a mediating variable linking health condition to life satisfaction in long-lived elders.
