BACKGROUND There are quite a few controversies on the surgical management of single-segment thoracic spinal tuberculosis with neurological deficits (STSTND). In this study, the clinical efficacy and feasibility of one-stage posterior-only transpedicular debridement, interbody fusion, and posterior instrumentation for treating STSTND in adults were(More)
STUDY DESIGN This is a retrospective case-control study. OBJECTIVES The surgical approaches to cervicothoracic spinal tuberculosis (CTSTB) were controversial. The aim of this research is to retrospectively compare the efficacy and feasibility of anterior-only (AO) approach, combined anterior and posterior (AP) surgeries, and posterior-only (PO) approach(More)
Bacterial leaf streak (BLS) caused by Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola (Xoc) is an important disease of rice, which is responsible for the economic losses worldwide. Functional investigation of differentially expressed protein genes (DEPGs) from rice (Oryza sativa L.) upon Xoc infection provides insight into the molecular mechanism of rice–Xoc interactions.(More)
PURPOSE The correction of severe post-tubercular kyphosis (PTK) is complex and has the disadvantage of being multistaged with a high morbidity. In this study, we evaluated the outcomes of children who underwent single-stage closing-opening wedge osteotomy as a surgical treatment of PTK of the thoracolumbar spine. METHOD Our study group included 12(More)
Overexpression of a new stress-repressive gene OsDSR2 in rice resulted in enhanced sensitivity to ABA-dependent salt and simulated drought stresses by downregulating the expression of multiple stress-responsive genes. Domain of Unknown Function 966 (DUF966) gene family was found in the protein family database, which consisted of seven genes in rice. The(More)
BACKGROUND There is limited evidence to guide treatment for pediatric cervical spinal tuberculosis with kyphosis (PCSTK). This study retrospectively evaluates the safety, feasibility and efficacy of 360-degree arthrodesis combined with anterior debridement and decompression for treating PCSTK, while simultaneously emphasizing the role of posterior fixation(More)
AIM The aim of this retrospective clinical study is to evaluate the long-term outcomes for single-stage transpedicular debridement, posterior instrumentation and fusion in the management of thoracic and thoracolumbar spinal tuberculosis in adults. METHODS Fifty-nine adult patients with thoracic and thoracolumbar spinal tuberculosis underwent single-stage(More)
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is one of the most common hematologic malignancies among adults for which the chimeric monoclonal anti-CD20 antibody (Ab) rituximab (RTX) is used as first-line therapy. As RTX itself is not directly cytotoxic but relies on host immune effector mechanisms or chemotherapeutic agents to attack target cells, its therapeutic capacity(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical efficacy and feasibility of twenty patients with cervical tubercular spondylitis with kyphosis (CTSK) treated by halo traction, single-segment circumferential instrumented fusion combined anterior debridement, decompression and bone grafting. METHODS Retrospective review of data on twenty patients who suffered from CTSK(More)
