Background Single incision laparoscopic colectomy (SILC) and single incision robotic colectomy (SIRC) are both advanced minimally invasive operative techniques. However, studies comparing these two surgical methods have not been published. The purpose of this study is to compare and evaluate the short-term outcomes of SIRC with those of SILC. Meth...

Purpose: To assess the feasibility and short-term outcomes of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) followed by transanal total mesorectal excision assisted by single-port laparoscopic surgery (TaTME-SPLS) for low-lying rectal adenocarcinoma. Methods and materials: A total of 23 patients with clinical stage II-III low-lying (from anal verge 0-8 c...

Approximately, 25% of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients develop recurrent disease. NPC may involve relatively few genomic alterations compared to other cancers due to its association with Epstein‐Barr virus (EBV). We envisioned that in‐depth sequencing of tumor tissues might provide new insights into the genetic alterations of this cancer. Th...
Article
Background and objectives: To investigate whether multidisciplinary team (MDT) intervention is associated with improved survival for patients with colorectal adenocarcinoma with liver or lung metastasis (CRA-LLM). Methods: We enrolled 161 consecutive patients with histologically confirmed CRA-LLM at Taipei Medical University-Wan Fang Hospital be...
Article
Full-text available
Background and Objectives: To evaluate the predictive factor for and patterns of distant metastasis in patients with rectal adenocarcinoma receiving total mesorectal excision (TME). Methods: We enrolled 217 consecutive patients who had histologically confirmed rectal adenocarcinoma and underwent surgery at Taipei Medical University- Wanfang Hospita...
Article
Full-text available
Background and Objectives: To investigate critical prognostic factors for local recurrence in patients with rectal adenocarcinoma. Methods: We enrolled 221 consecutive patients who had histologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the rectum and underwent surgery in our hospital between January 2000 and December 2014. Total mesorectal excision was per...

In Taiwan, colorectal cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis is considered a terminal condition. We examined the clinical outcomes of cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) treatment for colorectal cancer with peritoneal carcinomatosis in Taiwan. We enrolled patients with colorectal cancer and peritoneal metastas...

To investigate the outcomes of the selective neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) in lower 3rd rectal cancer patients in different groups (with or without neoadjuvant CCRT), especially in survival rate, local recurrence rate, and sphincter preservation rate. From January 1999 to December 2012, 69 consecutive patients who had histological...
Article
Background: The prognostic value of nodal status in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients may be influenced by the total number of lymph nodes (LNs) harvested. This study evaluates the impact of LN ratio (LNR) on CRC patients' outcome. Methods: A total of 612 stage III CRC patients who underwent curative-intent surgery between 2004 and 2008 were enro...
Article
DNA methylation is a gene-silencing and host defense system that can down-regulate viral gene expression in mammalian cells. An established targeted DNA methylation method was used to demonstrate that genome-integrated CMV and adenovirus type 5 E1A promoters were hypermethylated after MCF7 and HEK293 cells were transfected with in vitro methylated...
Article
Epigenetic regulation of gene expression by DNA methylation and histone modification controls cell fate during development and homeostasis in adulthood. Aberrant epigenetic modifications may lead to abnormal development, even diseases. We have found that Trip10 (thyroid hormone receptor interactor 10), an adaptor protein involved in diverse functio...
Article
Aberrant DNA methylation is considered a major mechanism for silencing tumor suppressor genes in gastric cancer. We used CpG microarray and differential methylation hybridization strategies to identify potential tumor suppressor genes and recovered glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 2 (GRIK2) as a novel epigenetic target in gastric cancer. Add...
Article
DNA methylation plays a significant role in tumor progression. In this study, we used CpG microarray and differential methylation hybridization approaches to identify low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 1B (LRP1B) as a novel epigenetic target in gastric cancer. LRP1B was hypermethylated in four gastric cancer cell lines, and low LRP1B...
Article
Investigating aberrant DNA methylation in the cancer genome may identify genes that play an important role in tumor progression. In this study, we combined differential methylation hybridization and a CpG microarray platform to characterize methylation profiles and identify novel candidate genes associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The g...

EBV latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) activates cellular DNA methyltransferases, resulting in hypermethylation and silencing of E-cadherin. However, the underlying mechanism remains to be elucidated. In this study, we show that LMP1 directly induces the dnmt1 promoter activity through its COOH-terminal activation region-2 YYD domain. Using (i) LMP1...
