OBJECTIVE To study the effects of fibrin sealant containing nerve growth factor on the peripheral nerve regeneration. STUDY DESIGN A four-group experimental design with repeated measures on one factor was used. METHODS Fibrin glue (FG) containing NGF was injected into the site of end-and-end sutured peripheral nerve (sciatic nerve) (group I: NGF+FG),(More)
Our previous findings confirmed that the nerve growth factor-containing fibrin glue membrane provides a good microenvironment for peripheral nerve regeneration; however, the precise mechanism remains unclear. p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75(NTR)) plays an important role in the regulation of peripheral nerve regeneration. We hypothesized that a nerve growth(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) remains to be the most devastating type of trauma for patients because of long lasting disability and limited response to the acute drug administration and efforts at rehabilitation. With the purpose to identify potential targets for SCI treatment and to gain more insights into the mechanisms of SCI, the microarray data of GSE2270,(More)
The SS18-SSX1 fusion gene has been shown to play important roles in the development of synovial sarcoma (SS), but the underlying molecular mechanisms and its downstream target genes are still not clear. Here SHC SH2-domain binding protein 1 (SHCBP1) was identified and validated to be a novel downstream target gene of SS18-SSX1 by using microarray assay,(More)
BACKGROUND The Latarjet procedure addresses recurrent anterior shoulder instability in the context of a significant bony defect. However, the bony and soft tissue anatomy of the coracoid in coracoid transfer procedures has not yet been defined in Mongolian men. The aims of this study were to describe the soft tissue attachments of the coracoid regarding the(More)
Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory rheumatic disease strongly associated with HLA-B*27, an major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecule that presents peptide antigen to T cells. Previously, regulatory B cells were found to suppress T cell-mediated autoimmunity induction and chronic inflammation, partially through interleukin (IL)-10(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy combined with limb salvage surgery in patients with limb osteosarcoma of Enneking stage II. PATIENTS AND METHODS Medical records of 98 patients who met the inclusion criteria were retrospectively analyzed. Of these patients, 56 cases who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy combined with limb(More)
Objective: Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most common malignant bone tumor in children and young adults. Many studies have shown that microRNAs play a critical role in proliferation and metastasis with this tumour type. However, whether aberrant expression might contribute to a metabolism switch in osteosarcoma cases is not clearly understood. In this study, we(More)
