Angiopoietin-like protein 6 (ANGPTL6), which plays an important role in angiogenesis and energy metabolism as a circulating orphan peptide secreted by liver, could produce a potential effect on growth and development of animals. The objective of this study was to detect genetic variations of ANGPTL6 gene in 732 Qinchuan cattle, as well as to analyze their(More)
Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers worldwide. There are three major skin cancer types: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. General risk factors for skin cancer include fair skin, a history of tanning and sunburn, family history of skin cancer, exposure to ultraviolet rays and a large number of moles. The(More)
The anatomical complexity of the paraclinoid region has made surgical treatment of intracranial ophthalmic segment aneurysms (OSAs) difficult. This study evaluated the safety and efficacy of endovascular treatment of paraclinoid aneurysms. We conducted a retrospective study of 28 patients with 30 aneurysms of the paraclinoid in whom treatment with(More)
AIM To determine whether specific clinical and radiographic factors predispose arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) presenting with seizure and to predict the seizure risk for individual AVM patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Clinical features and cerebral angiograms of consecutive 45 unruptured AVM patients who were diagnosed in our center in a 2-year period(More)
Transmembrane protein 18 (TMEM18) gene is expressed in the central nervous system that has recently been linked to human obesity and body mass index (BMI) in genome wide association studies (GWAS). In this study, two novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), g.3835 G > A (aa. Gly > Ser) and g.3865 A > G were detected in cattle TMEM18 gene by DNA(More)
We report our experience with basal ganglia AVM embolization and clinical outcomes after embolization. We retrospectively evaluated consecutive 15 patients with AVMs in the basal ganglia with respect to the endovascular treatment of these lesions. Treatment consisted of embolization and radiosurgery in combination. The angiographic follow-up after the last(More)
Penetrating craniocerebral firearm injuries remain one of the most lethal causes of all trauma and are common both in war or peace time. Data were reviewed for 4140 severely head-injured patients (Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) scores 3-8) treated at Xi-Jing Hospital between 1973 and 1993; 51 of these patients had acute penetrating craniocerebral injuries caused(More)
