AIM To evaluate the association of glutathione S-transferases gene polymorphisms with the risk of gastric cancer, with reference to smoking and Helicobacter pylori infection. METHODS We conducted a 1:1 matched case-control study with 410 gastric cancer cases and 410 cancer-free controls. Polymorphisms of GSTM1, GSTT1 and GSTP1 were determined using(More)
The multiple small-scale association studies of candidate genes for type 2 diabetes mellitus in the Chinese Han population have shown inconsistent results. Here, we performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the contribution of five candidate genes to the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes in the Chinese Han population. We searched for relevant published papers and(More)
One of the challenging scheduling problems in Cloud datacenters is to take the allocation and migration of reconfigurable virtual machines into consideration as well as the integrated features of hosting physical machines. We introduce a dynamic and integrated resource scheduling algorithm (DAIRS) for Cloud datacenters. Unlike traditional load-balance(More)
AIM An epidemiological study was conducted based on an esophageal cancer patient's cohort to investigate the association of folate intake and MTHFR C677T polymorphism with the prognosis of esophageal cancer in a Chinese population. METHODS 167 patients aged 37-75 years who had histological confirmed diagnosis of esophageal squamous cell cancer were(More)
CF (cystic fibrosis) is a recessive genetic disease caused by mutations of the CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator), a cAMP-activated anion channel, exhibiting a multitude of clinical manifestations including lung inflammation/infection, pancreatic insufficiency/diabetes, intestinal obstruction and infertility in both sexes. While(More)
Aspergillus sellar abscess is a very rare form of fungal infections of the central nervous system (CNS). In this report, we describe the successful treatment of a patient with aspergillus sellar abscess. A 65-year-old woman presented with headache, nasal discharge and decreased visual acuity. The diagnosis of sellar mass was made on the basis of magnetic(More)
In order to investigate the association of genotypes of HLA-DRB1 and HLA-DQB1 alleles with the genetic susceptibility of chronic urticaria (CU), genotypes of HLA-DRB1 and HLA-DQB1 genes were detected by polymerase chain reactions with sequence-specific primers (PCR-SSP) in 42 patients with CU (19 men and 23 women, mean age 30.67±12.45 y old as well as 193(More)
Gliomas, with a poor clinical course, account for 30% to 40% of all intracranial tumors. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies has emerged as a promising area of investigation and recently it has been shown that antibodies utilize complementarity-determining regions (CDRs) of their variable domains to bind to antigens with high affinity and specificity.(More)
The subliminal channel is used to send a secret message to an authorized receiver; the message cannot be discovered by any unauthorized receivers. Designated verifier signature(DVS) provide authentication of a message, we design a DVS scheme with message recovery mechanism and use it as a subliminal channel. In order to share a message among n users(More)
