OBJECTIVES This study determined the frequency of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and cancer of the prostate (CaP) in China. METHODS Prostate specimens from 321 unselected autopsies were collected from 1989 to 1992. Slices were cut vertically every 0.5 cm from apex to base. Five to 12 slices were obtained from each prostate. Specimens were stained with(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of lower urinary tract symptoms was determined by survey as an initial step in estimating the significance of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in Asia and Australia. METHODS The symptom index (0 to 35) and quality-of-life (QOL) index (0 to 6) of the international prostate symptom score were measured in 7588 men in 9 Asian(More)
Caveolin-1 (Cav1) is an integral membrane, scaffolding protein found in plasma membrane invaginations (caveolae). Cav1 regulates multiple cancer-associated processes. In breast cancer, a tumor suppressive role for Cav1 has been suggested; however, Cav1 is frequently overexpressed in aggressive breast cancer subtypes, suggesting an oncogenic function in(More)
AIM To determine whether NTrainer patterned orocutaneous therapy affects preterm infants' non-nutritive suck and/or oral feeding success. SUBJECTS Thirty-one preterm infants (mean gestational age 29.3 weeks) who demonstrated minimal non-nutritive suck output and delayed transition to oral feeds at 34 weeks post-menstrual age. INTERVENTION NTrainer(More)
It has been recognized in recent years that renal cell carcinoma possesses a proximal convoluted tubules origin. In an attempt of further intensive evaluation we assayed 51 renal cell carcinomas and 38 additional normal kidney specimens with 4 kidney segment-specific antibodies (Uro-2/S4, Uro-5/T16, Uro-10/T43, Anti Tamm-Horsfall Protein) directed against(More)

In 1960, there were 26 eunuchs from the palace of the Qing Dynasty still living in Beijing. The authors took that unique opportunity of carrying out a general physical examination, including palpation of the prostate, for every one of them. Their average age then was 72 years (59-83 years). They became eunuchs at the age of 10-26 years. The prostate was(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the application of monoclonal antibody (McAb) to targeted treatment of bladder carcinoma through a series of in vitro and in vivo studies carried out in animal model and patients with bladder carcinoma. METHODS Monoclonal antibody BDI-1 against bladder carcinoma was prepared by the lymphocyte hybridoma technique. McAb was conjugated(More)
Flavoxate is a smooth muscle relaxant widely used to treat urgency and urge incontinence. It has been used in an unblinded, uncontrolled clinical trial in 14 urology departments in universities and major hospitals in the People's Republic of China involving 361 patients with urgency/incontinence of various types. Patients were given 200 mg three times(More)
The monoclonal antibody (BDI-1) against human bladder carcinoma has been shown to have selective reactivity for bladder cancer. A total of 19 bladder cancer patients were studied by radioimmunoimaging (RII) and a clear immunoscintigraphy was observed in all. Blood samples collected at 1, 2, 3, days after instillation were shown to be almost free from(More)
Vasectomy has been reported to be associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer in western countries. A hospital-based case-control study was conducted in 12 cities in China to evaluate the relationship between vasectomy and prostate cancer risk in China, a low-risk country with rising incidence and increasing use of vasectomy. Interviews were(More)
