The receptor-tyrosine-kinase-like orphan receptor 1 (ROR1) is a transmembrane protein belongs to receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) family. This study aimed to examine the expression of ROR1 in human ovarian cancer and investigate the relationship between its expression and the prognosis of ovarian cancer patients. In this present study, one-step quantitative(More)
PURPOSE This randomized, controlled trial was designed to determine whether the DNA cytometry testing is superior to the conventional cytologic testing for mass cervical cancer screening. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN After approval by the institutional ethics review boards from three separate screening centers, a total of 23,993 Chinese women ages 20 to 65 years(More)
West Nile virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne single-stranded RNA virus, which has relatively recently emerged as a blood transfusion and organ transplantation transmissible pathogen. Low levels of WNV (viremia) are found in asymptomatic blood transfusion or cell/tissue donors with an infection, which poses a health threat to recipients. Since the introduction(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian serous carcinoma (OSC) is the most common ovarian epithelial malignancy. Despite new medical and surgical advances, the overall 5-year survival for OSC remains poor. There is an important need to determine diagnostic and prognostic markers for this disease. Eph receptors are the largest known family of receptor tyrosines characterised in(More)
OBJECTIVE This study investigated the involvement of fibrillar collagen in remodeling extracellular matrices (ECM) and its significant impact on the metastasis/invasion of epithelial ovarian cancer cells via β1 integrin/phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) signaling. MATERIALS/METHODS Normal ovarian surface epithelium tissues (n = 13), ovarian cancer(More)
The Marsh Grassbird Locustella pryeri is an uncommon songbird endemic to East Asia. Suitable nest-site selection can minimize nest loss, especially for open-cup and ground nesting passerines. We located and monitored 66 Marsh Grassbird nests during 2004–2006 in Zhalong National Nature Reserve, northeast China, to identify characteristics of preferred nest(More)
Histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDACi) has been a major target of anticancer agents. Quisinostat (JNJ‑26481585), a novel second‑generation HDACi, has previously demonstrated antiproliferative activity against non‑small cell lung cancer; however, the function of quisinostat in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains to be elucidated. In the present study, it(More)

The Bar-headed Goose (Anser indicus) is a species that relies heavily on the plateau wetlands of Asia and whose population was thought to be declining. Over the past decade, south-central Tibet, one of the most important wintering grounds, supported large numbers of Bar-headed Geese, but the population had not been regularly monitored in this area. We(More)
