MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have recently been identified as important posttranscriptional regulators, which are involved in various biological processes. The aim of this study was to(More)
Bcl-xL is a pro-survival member of the Bcl-2 family that plays indispensable roles in regulating cell survival and apoptosis. It is overexpressed in many malignant tumors including colorectal cancer (CRC). However, it is still unclear if Bcl-xL can be used as an independent molecular marker for predicting the prognosis of CRC patients. In this study,(More)
OBJECTIVE Determining the prognoses of patients with acute ischemic stroke is difficult. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate whether the combined assessment of plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) and the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) variables is relevant to the prognosis of patients with acute(More)
The follicle-stimulating hormone is one of the two pituitary hormones that control fertility in both sexes. In the male, receptors for FSH (FSHR) are only expressed on testicular Sertoli cells. FSH plays different roles during the male life; it functions as a growth factor during development and sustains spermatogenesis in adults. However, the exact role of(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the treatment effects of HydroCoil Embolic System (HES) on large- and medium-sized intracranial aneurysms. METHODOLOGY Fifty cases of intracranial aneurysm patients were retrospectively analyzed, in which 27 and 23 cases were treated with HES (n=27) and ordinary coils (n=23), respectively. All the patients were followed up for two(More)
