N6-Methyladenosine (m6A) represents the most prevalent internal modification in mammalian mRNAs. Despite its functional importance in various fundamental bioprocesses, the studies of m6A in cancer have been limited. Here we show that FTO, as an m6A demethylase, plays a critical oncogenic role in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). FTO is highly expressed in AMLs(More)
Periods of deliberate fasting with restriction of solid food intake are practiced worldwide, mostly based on traditional, cultural or religious reasons. There is large empirical and observational evidence that medically supervised modified fasting (fasting cure, 200-500 kcal nutritional intake per day) with periods of 7-21 days is efficacious in the(More)
BACKGROUND Extended modified fasting is a frequently practiced tradition in Europe. It is claimed to improve the cardiometabolic state and physical and psychological well-being by an evolutionary co-developed adaptation response. We aimed to investigate the cardiometabolic and psychological effects of a 7-day fast and differences of these responses between(More)
Fibromyalgia poses a challenge for therapy. Recent guidelines suggest that fibromyalgia should be treated within a multidisciplinary therapy approach. No data are available that evaluated multimodal treatment strategies of Integrative Medicine (IM). We conducted a controlled, nonrandomized pilot study that compared two inpatient treatment strategies, an IM(More)
This study draws on biotechnology publications by Chinese scientists indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded from 1991 to 2014, using bibliometric and statistical methods to investigate the characteristics of research collaboration. A series of rules and statistical methods are applied jointly for data cleaning to ensure data accuracy. The major(More)
To enhance aldose reductase (ALR2) inhibition and add antioxidant ability, phenolic hydroxyl was introduced both to the quinoxalinone core and C3 side chain, resulting in a series of derivatives as ALR2 inhibitors. Biological activity tests suggested that most of the derivatives were potent and selective inhibitors with IC50 values ranging from 0.059 to(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a highly heterogeneous disease and internal tandem duplication mutation in FMS-like tyrosine-kinase-3 (FLT3-ITD) has a negative impact on outcome. Finding effective treatment regimens is desperately needed. In this study, we explored the inhibitory effect and mechanism of homoharringtonine (HHT) in combination with ibrutinib(More)
Antithyroid drugs (ATDs) induced leukopenia is commonly seen, but life-threatening agranulocytosis is a rare occurrence. Interestingly, agranulocytosis accompanied with plasmacytosis in bone marrow (BM) is rarer. In this study, we admitted a patient with Graves' disease who had been treated with 15 mg/d methimazole (MMI) for 42 days. She presented with(More)
