B7-H3, a member of the B7-family molecules, plays an important role in adaptive immune responses. In addition, B7-H3 is also expressed in several types of human cancers and is correlated with the poor outcome of cancer patients. However, its exact role in cancer is not known. In the present study, we compared B7-H3 expression in normal pancreas and… (More)
In numerous types of cancer, the expression of a novel member of the B7 ligand family, the B7-H3 immuno-regulatory protein, has been correlated with a poor prognosis. In the present study, we investigated the role of B7-H3 in chemoresistance in pancreatic carcinoma. Silencing of B7-H3, through lentivirus-mediated delivery of stable short hairpin RNA, was… (More)
Pancreatic carcinoma (PC) is an aggressive malig-nancy with one of the poorest mortality rates. It is the sixth leading cause of mortality from malignant disease in China and the fourth leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States. The poor outcome reflects the requirement for an improved understanding of the transcriptional control of… (More)
AIM: To study the expression of survivin, an inhibitor of apoptosis protein, in human gastric carcinomas and gastric carcinoma models of rats.
The aim of the study is to investigate the efficacy of using targeted enterography during intestinal decompression in the diagnosis of small bowel obstruction (SBO). Thirty-five patients with SBO and who had neither strangulation nor other contradictions received intestinal decompression, under the guidance of X-ray, using a 300-cm-long nasointestinal tube… (More)
This study describes clinical experience and curative effect of radiophotographically controlled nasointestinal intubation in the treatment of small intestine arrangement in recurrent postoperative adhesive ileus. A 300-cm-long nasointestinal tube was installed into the jejunum through the nasal cavity under radiophotographic observation in 25 patients with… (More)
Pain control is the most difficult puzzle in patients with terminal pancreatic cancerous pain. Many methods in clinical practice fail in 20 ~ 50 % of patients. The present study aims to explore the effect of nerve block on patients with end-stage pancreatic cancerous pain. In this study, 100 subjects with end-stage pancreatic cancerous pain were enrolled… (More)
