Recent studies have shown an indirect link between platelet count and blood vessel metastasis, but this association with lymphatic vessels metastasis has not been established in NSCLC. So we investigated whether an association exists between preoperative platelet count and lymph node metastasis in NSCLC patients. Between January 2001 and January 2011,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) modified supermagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIO) (γ-Fe2O3@DMSA-DG NPs) in tumor detection as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent. METHODS γ-Fe2O3@DMSA-DG NPs was prepared. The degree of A549 cells targeted absorption of γ-Fe2O3@DMSA-DG NPs was detected by Prussian blue(More)
BACKGROUND Radiation-induced bystander effect (RIBE) has important implication in tumour radiotherapy, but the bystander signals are still not well known. METHODS The role of cytochrome-c (cyt-c) and free radicals in RIBE on human hepatoma cells HepG2 was investigated by detecting the formation of bystander micronuclei (MN) and the generation of(More)
The authors investigated the health effects of occupational exposures to vehicle emissions in 745 bus drivers, conductors, and taxi drivers, compared with 532 unexposed controls, in Shanghai. Logistic regression and general linear models were used to examine the relationship between exposure and respiratory illness. Results showed that the prevalences of(More)
With the removal of lead from gasoline and the use of new technologies, there have been some changes in vehicle emissions. In order to find out if the unleaded gasoline has the ability to reduce the emission of pollutants, leaded and unleaded gasoline were tested on a Santana engine dynamometer under a standard test cycle. The concentrations of hydrocarbons(More)
While unleaded gasoline has the advantage of eliminating lead from automobile exhaust, its potential to reduce the exhaust gas and particles, merits further examination. In the present studies, the concentrations of hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon mono-oxides (CO) in emissions were analyzed on Santana engine Dynamometer under a standard test cycle, and total(More)
The p.d. of the rat seminiferous tubules was 4.75 +/- 1.39 mV (lumen negative) at 35 degrees C and varied linearly with temperatures from 26 to 40 degrees C. A depolarization of the seminiferous tubules was found in the rats administered with gossypol at the dosage of 30 mg/kg body weight for 3 weeks, the p.d. lowered to 3.63 +/- 0.79 mV at 35 degrees C and(More)
