BACKGROUND Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) is an emerging infectious disease caused by the SFTS virus (SFTSV) with an average fatality rate of 12%. The clinical factors for death in SFTS patients remain unclear. METHODS Clinical features and laboratory parameters were dynamically collected for 11 fatal and 48 non-fatal SFTS cases.(More)
INTRODUCTION B-cell-specific Moloney murine leukemia virus integration site 1 (Bmi-1) is a member of polycomb group, which participates in axial patterning, hematopoiesis, cell cycle regulation, and senescence. Recently, overexpression of Bmi-1 has been reported in various human cancers and proved to be associated with poor survival. The aim of this study(More)
Soluble human leukocyte antigen-G (sHLA-G) has been reported in malignancies and is implicated in mediating immune surveillance of tumor. The aim of our study is to detect serum sHLA-G levels in colorectal cancer and to determine whether sHLA-G may be helpful in distinguishing colorectal cancer from benign colorectal diseases. Serum sHLA-G levels were(More)
PURPOSE Overexpression of DJ-1 was associated with metastatic uveal melanoma (UM). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential of serum DJ-1 as a biomarker for metastasis of uveal melanoma. METHODS Serum DJ-1 levels were determined by ELISA assays in 27 patients with metastatic UM metastatic uveal melanoma and in 76 patients who were disease(More)
BACKGROUND YKL-40 is a member of the mammalian chitinase-like proteins. Elevated serum YKL-40 levels in patients with gastrointestinal cancer at time of diagnosis are associated with poor prognosis. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prognostic value of serum YKL-40 before surgery and during follow-up in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients(More)
A monoclonal antibody (1H2) against nucleocapsid protein of Hantavirus was developed. A sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) with the monoclonal antibody (MAb) was established and evaluated for detecting circulating antigen (CAg) in serum of patients with hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). Results were compared to that of an(More)
BACKGROUND Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the most widely used treatment option for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Elevated serum YKL-40 level has been shown to predict poor prognosis in HCC patients undergoing resection. This study was designed to validate the prognostic significance of serum YKL-40 in patients with HCC(More)
