Colon cancer-associated transcript2 (CCAT2), a long noncoding RNA (LncRNA), has been found to function as an oncogene in various cancers. However, the clinical value of CCAT2 in cancers remains unclear. Therefore, we performed this meta-analysis to investigate the association between CCAT2 level and metastasis & prognosis in malignant tumors. The meta analysis was performed by using a systematic search in PubMed, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library from inception to NOV 17, 2016. According to the inclusion and exclusion criteria,9 studies with 1084 patients were included in the meta-analysis...

BACKGROUND: Repetitive peripheral magnetic stimulation (rPMS) is a form of therapy that creates painless stimulation of deep muscle structures to improve motor function in people with physical impairment from brain or nerve disorders. Use of rPMS for people after stroke has been identified as a feasible approach to improve activities of daily living and functional ability. However, no systematic reviews have assessed the findings of available trials. The effect and safety of this intervention for people after stroke currently remain uncertain...

The prevalence of congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation among fetuses still varies in different studies in China. The present meta-analysis was intended to evaluate the pooled prevalence of fetuses in China. Four English (Pubmed, Elsevier Science Direct, Web of Science and the Cochrane Library) and four Chinese (the Chinese Biological Medical Literature database, the Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure database, VIP database and Wanfang Data) databases were searched from inception to July 2016. Meta-analyses were performed using Stata (version 12...

Recently, several studies have reported that inflammatory response and elevated platelet counts may be associated with the poor prognosis of colorectal cancer. This meta-analysis was designed to analyze and evaluate the prognostic role of elevated preoperative or pretreatment neutrophils-to-lymphocytes ratio, platelet-to-lymphocytes ratio or platelet counts in patients with colorectal cancer. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library and Web of Science to April, 2016. A total of 23 studies (N = 11762 participants) were included for this meta-analysis...

Accumulating evidences indicated that tumor suppressor candidate 7 (TUSC7) is a putatively tumor suppressor gene in various tumors. We carried out current systematic review and meta-analysis to explore the decreased expression of TUSC7 associate with prognostic and clinicopathological characteristic in cancer patients. A literature collection search in the online electronic databases PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, and CNKI was conducted to obtain eligible studies (up to February 20, 2017).

Although many studies have discussed the association of abnormally expressed silent information regulator 1 (Sirt1) with the prognosis of patients with a variety of solid carcinomas, they failed to agree on whether excessive Sirt1 indicates a good or poor overall survival for the patients. We conducted the current meta-analysis to illustrate the prognostic value of Sirt1 in solid malignancies. Articles published before December 2016 were searched using Pubmed and Web of Science. The studies were selected for the meta-analysis based on certain criteria...

Data about Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) in developing countries are scarce and suggest the existence of substantial disparities in healthcare and outcomes in large areas of the world. In 2009, a prospective registry of HL was implemented in Brazil. Web-based data were contributed by 20 institutions across the country participating in the Brazilian Prospective Hodgkin's Lymphoma Registry. The aim of this study was to present the clinical features and outcomes of newly diagnosed patients with HL aged 13 to 90 years...

BACKGROUND: With the increasing popularity of Web 2.0 applications, social media has made it possible for individuals to post messages on adverse drug reactions. In such online conversations, patients discuss their symptoms, medical history, and diseases. These disorders may correspond to adverse drug reactions (ADRs) or any other medical condition. Therefore, methods must be developed to distinguish between false positives and true ADR declarations. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate a method for filtering out disorder terms that did not correspond to adverse events by using the distance (as number of words) between the drug term and the disorder or symptom term in the post...

BACKGROUND: Women protective service workers die by suicide at a higher rate than women workers in other occupational groups. However, no study has examined rates and correlates of suicidal thoughts and behaviors among women firefighters, despite the potential for these data to inform suicide screening, prevention, and intervention initiatives.

The polymorphism of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) gene Ser447Ter (S447X) has long been linked to hypertension and blood pressure variation, but the established data remained controversial. To better elucidate this inconsistency, a meta-analysis was conducted. We comprehensively searched electronic databases, including Pubmed, EMBASE, China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), Web of Science, for all literatures with the last update on February 2016. The strength of association was calculated by using odds ratios (ORs) and weighted mean differences (WMDs) with corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs)...

PURPOSE: We aimed to systematically review available data on the association between adherence to MD and BMD as well as risk of fractures and to summarize this information through a meta-analysis. METHODS: Previous studies in the field of adherence to MD in relation to BMD and risk of fracture were selected through searching PubMed, Scopus, ISI Web of Science and Google Scholar databases prior to June, 2016 using Mesh and non-Mesh relevant keywords. RESULTS: In the meta-analysis of four effect sizes, obtained from three studies, we found that adherence to MD was associated with a 21% reduced risk of hip fracture (overall RR 0...
