Prognostic Value of Twist, Snail and E-cadherin Expression in Pathological N0 Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer: A Retrospective Cohort Study
August 13, 2018
The 5-year survival rate in patients after curative surgery for N0 nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is reduced by recurrence and metastasis, and there is evidence that the epithelial–mesenchymal transition in cancer cells is associated with metastasis.

A centrifuge made of paper and string and powered by hand can separate plasma from whole blood in 90 seconds and permit the diagnosis of malaria in 15 minuntes at the point of care. The centrifuge generates speeds of 125,000 rpm, with a theoretical maximum of 1,000,000 rpm.
