Cardiomyocytes derived from human embryonic stem cells (hESC-CMs) are regarded as a promising source for regenerative medicine, drug testing and disease modeling. Nevertheless, cardiomyocytes are immature in terms of their contractile structure, metabolism and electrophysiological properties. Here, we fabricate cardiac muscle strips by encapsulating(More)
To determine the relationship between PCNA expression and pathological stage, cellular grade, recurrence and prognosis of renal pelvic and ureteral cancer, research on PCNA proliferating index in 47 cases of renal pelvic and ureteral cancer we studied by immunohistochemistry S-P method. PCNA proliferating index of renal pelvic and ureteral cancer increased(More)
Total syntheses of multidrug resistant inhibitors (-)-acetylardeemin 2a, (-)-ardeemin 2b, and (-)-formylardeemin 3 have been achieved within 10 steps starting from bromopyrroloinoline 13. The key step involves direct alkylation of 13 with prenyl tributylstannane 11 to yield 12 via a silver-promoted asymmetric Friedel-Crafts reaction. Highly efficient(More)
Cardiac hypertrophy is an abnormal enlargement of heart muscle. It frequently results in congestive heart failure, which is a leading cause of human death. Previous studies demonstrated that the nitric oxide (NO), cyclic GMP (cGMP), and protein kinase G (PKG) signaling pathway can inhibit cardiac hypertrophy and thus improve cardiac function. However, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To prevent and treat recurrent urothelial cancer after resection of ureteral carcinoma, recurrence-associated factors and their features were analyzed. METHODS Thirty five cases of ureteral cancer were studied retrospectively. RESULTS There were 16 cases of recurrent bladder cancer among 32 cases after kidney-ureter and partial bladder(More)
Genomic, epigenetic and expression alterations of WW domain containing oxidoreductase (WWOX) have been implicated in multiple tumor types. The current study was designed to examine the expression of WWOX in tumor tissues of human bladder transitional cell carcinoma (BTCC) and the influence of cigarette smoke extract (CSE) on WWOX expression and methylation(More)
We present a method for characterizing injection volume of the robotic cell injection system through measuring fluorescence intensity of the injected cell. The relationship of the concentration of the fluorescence dye and the fluorescence intensity was found to be linear, which was confirmed by measuring the cell-morphology-like droplets. The droplet was(More)
In order to know the clinical importance of p53 gene mutation and PCNA expression in ureteral and renal pelvic cancers, research was carried out with immunohistochemistry S-P method in 45 cases. Mutant p53 nuclear staining was positive in 24 cases (53.3%) and correlated with PCNA expression, being higher in clinical stages T3 and T4 than in T1 + T2. They(More)
By comparing the safety and efficacy of 500 mg of oral levofloxacin for 3 days with those of intravenous antibiotics for 3 days in the prevention of infectious complications of ultrasound-guided transrectal prostate biopsy (TPB), we provided a safe and cost-effective infection preventive protocol for TPB in China. A total of 801 patients with indications(More)
29 patients with adrenal tumors were admitted to our hospital from June 1985 to July 1994. The diagnosis was made preoperatively in 7 patients (5 adrenal cyst, 2 adrenal myelolipoma) by B-US, CT or MRI. Of the 22 patients whose diagnosis was not made before operation, 8 (tumor diameter: < 3cm) had adrenal cortical adenomas, 6 (tumor diameter: 3-6cm) adrenal(More)
