While genome-wide association studies identified some promising candidates for schizophrenia, the majority of risk genes remained unknown. We were interested in testing whether integration gene expression and other functional information could facilitate the identification of susceptibility genes and related biological pathways. We conducted high throughput(More)
INTRODUCTION Patients with pancreatic cancer often present initially in advanced disease with many compromising factors, and yet they may still be responsive to chemotherapy. AIMS The response of 23 patients with advanced pancreatic cancer to continuous infusion therapy was investigated. METHODOLOGY From September 1995 to February 1998, 23 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE This retrospective study aimed to ascertain the expression of erbB2 in relation to topoisomerase II alpha (T2 alpha) and thymidylate synthase (TS) markers in 30 consecutive metastatic gastric cancer patients with a specimen available for study. METHODS All patients had been entered on consecutive chemotherapeutic clinical trials that were all(More)
Reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) is widely used in diagnosis and research to determine specific mRNA expressions in cells. As RT-qPCR applications increase, it's necessary to provide undergraduates hands-on experience of this modern technique. Here, we report a 3-week laboratory exercise using RT-qPCR to demonstrate the(More)
PURPOSE To describe a systematic catheter management approach for treatment of abscesses with enteric fistulae by abscess evacuation and selective fistula tract cannulation in a series of patients with postprocedural abscess-fistula complexes. MATERIALS AND METHODS This single-center retrospective study included 27 patients (17 male; mean age, 51.3 y) who(More)
PURPOSE A phase II and pharmacokinetic study was designed to assess the efficacy and toxicity profile of an epidophyllotoxin analogue, GL331, in previously treated Chinese gastric cancer patients, with concurrent pharmacokinetic evaluation of the drug's metabolism. MATERIAL AND METHODS GL331 was given at 200 mg/m(2) as a daily 3-h infusion for 5 days(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with breast cancer often fail to recall the details of their original diagnosis and adjuvant therapy with the passage of time. Subsequent follow-up and treatment at a later time and a different institution wastes valuable time and effort to retrieve the original data. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-five consecutive patients with breast(More)
An intumescent flame retardant (IFR), including melamine (MA), ammonium polyphosphate (APP), and polydopamine (PDA), was utilized as the precursor to prepare P,N co-doped hierarchically porous carbon which exhibited high electrocatalytic activity and durability for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). This finding indicates that an ingenious design of the(More)
