BACKGROUND Research into the etiology of breast cancer has recently focused on the role of the immunity and inflammation. The proinflammatory cytokines IL-17A and IL-17F can mediate inflammation and cancer. To evaluate the influences of IL-17A and IL-17F gene polymorphisms on the risk of sporadic breast cancer, a case-control study was conducted in Chinese(More)
It is well recognized that adverse events in utero impair fetal development and lead to the development of obesity and metabolic syndrome in adulthood. To investigate the mechanisms linking impaired fetal growth to increased cholesterol, an important clinical risk factor characterizing the metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease, we examined the(More)
Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) increases the risk for respiratory morbidity from infancy, throughout childhood and into adulthood. Chronic restriction of nutrients causes abnormalities in the airways and lungs of offspring, but whether IUGR adversely impacts fetal pulmonary vascular development and(More)
Desmoid-type fibromatosis (DTF) is an uncommon nonmetastatic fibrous neoplasm. Sporadic intraperitoneal DTF is rarely described in current literature. We herein report a case of DTF of unknown cause involving the pancreatic head. A 41-year-old man presented with recurrent epigastric pain and weight loss. An abdominal computed tomography scan showed a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate further the possible mechanism of carcinogenesis and portal invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS Samples of the primary tumors, cancer cells emboli in the portal veins and normal liver tissues adjacent to the tumor were collected from 20 cases of primary HCC. Expression of TIMP-3 (tissue inhibitor of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the clinicopathologic features and biological behavior of spermatocytic seminoma. METHODS A retrospective analysis of patients diagnosed as seminoma, spermatocytic seminoma between January 2003 and May 2011, was performed. Clinical data, HE stained section and immunohistochemical staining (SP method) were reviewed with follow-up. (More)
