Although circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) were frequently detected in sera of cancer patients, there is still a lack of analysis of the dynamic changes of miRNAs expression in sera of pre- and post-operative lung carcinoma patients. Thus, we conducted quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) to examine the expression of four(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with Diabetes are at greater risk for ischemic stroke and usually suffer more severe ischemic brain damage than nondiabetic patients. However, the underlying mechanism of the exaggerated injury is not well defined. AIMS Macroautophagy (hereafter called autophagy in this report) plays a key role in cellular homeostasis and may(More)
Peripheral blood-derived inflammation-based scores such as the neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) have recently been proposed as prognostic markers in ulcerative colitis. In some previous serological markers are commonly used to detect the severity of the Crohn's disease (CD), but their sensitivity and specificity are relatively low. So we want to use simple(More)
BACKGROUND The anatomic features of left atrial diverticula (LAD) are still unclear in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and morphological characteristics of LAD in patients referred for radiofrequency transcatheter ablation of AF with dual-source computed tomography. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
PURPOSE We investigated whether miRNA expression profiles can distinguish and predict outcome of non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) patients with different histological subtypes. METHODS High-throughput microarray was used to measure miRNA expression levels in six NSCLC samples. Subsequently, quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction(More)
Two new anthraquinone glycosides, named 1-methyl-8-hydroxyl-9,10-anthraquinone-3-O-β-D-(6'-O-cinnamoyl)glucopyranoside (1) and rhein-8-O-β-D-[6'-O-(3''-methoxyl malonyl)]glucopyranoside (2), have been isolated from the roots of Rheum palmatum, together with seven known compounds, rhein-8-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (3), physcion-8-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (4),(More)
BACKGROUND To explore a better balance between efficacy and complications, we respectively compared the clinical outcome of low-dose and high-dose rATG induction therapy with a control group in renal transplantations from March 2009 to March 2012. MATERIAL AND METHODS 281 kidney transplant recipients were included in 3 groups. The low-dose group (n=39)(More)
Aberrant expression of various microRNAs (miRNA) has shown diagnostic and prognostic significance in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). qRT-PCR analysis confirmed altered expression of miR-125a-5p, let-7e, miR-30a, miR-30e and miR-30e-3p in 70 paired tissue and serum samples from NSCLC patients. The reduced expression of miR-125a-5p, let-7e and miR-30e was(More)
The time variance and nonlinearity of forging processes pose great challenges to high-quality production. In this study, a one-step-ahead model predictive control (MPC) strategy based on backpropagation (BP) neural network is proposed for the precise forging processes. Two online updated BP neural networks, predictive neural network (PNN) and control neural(More)
