We report our experience in using pigtail tube drainage in the treatment of spontaneous pneumothorax compared with traditional chest tube thoracotomy. One hundred two patients were included and analyzed. Fifty patients were treated with the pigtail tube and 52 patients were treated with the traditional chest tube. The extubation time, mean hospital stay,(More)
This work demonstrated the feasibility of detecting 250zM Escherichia coli O157:H7 eaeA target DNA by using a magnetic bead-based DNA detection assay with designed labeling strategy within 40-60min. The magnetic beads were used as the solid support for the binding probe and isolated the target DNA from the sample. The detection signals could be amplified(More)
INTRODUCTION Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations are known as oncogene driver mutations and with EGFR mutations exhibit good response to the EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor Gefitinib. Some studies have shown that activation of estrogen and estrogen receptor α or β (ERα/β) promote adenocarcinoma. We evaluated the relationship between the two(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the associations among lung cancer location, and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation status. Treatment-naive, pathologically confirmed lung adenocarcinomas with tumor specimens available for genetic analysis were included from 2011 through 2014. Overall, 1771 patients with lung adenocarcinoma were(More)
Despite the advancement of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors in lung cancer therapy, it remains unclear whether EGFR mutation status in familial lung cancers is different from that of sporadic cases. In this multicenter retrospective study, we compared both the EGFR mutation frequency and patterns between familial and sporadic cases. The(More)
