Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is one of the major causative agents of hand, foot and mouth disease. Recently, several EV71 inactivated vaccine candidates have been development in mainland China. To compare the antigenicity and genetic characteristics of different candidate vaccine strains for EV71, the genomes of 11 EV71 strains were sequenced. The cross-protection(More)
BACKGROUND Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is the major causative agent of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD). Three inactivated EV71 whole-virus vaccines of different strains developed by different manufacturers in mainland China have recently entered clinical trials. Although several studies on these vaccines have been published, a study directly comparing the(More)
Whole-cell pertussis vaccine was introduced in China in the early 1960s. We used standard typing methods to compare 96 Bordetella pertussis isolates collected before and after introduction of vaccination, during 1953-2005. The following vaccine-type alleles of the pertussis toxin (ptx) gene were characteristic for all prevaccination strains: ptxA2, ptxA3,(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the intra-fraction displacements of the mediastinal metastatic lymph nodes by using four-dimensional CT (4D-CT) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four patients with NSCLC, who were to be treated by using three dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT), underwent a 4D-CT simulation during free(More)
The aim of the present study was to analyse clinical data obtained from lung cancer patients, including the initial clinical symptoms upon diagnosis, duration of patient delay in presenting to a doctor, lung cancer stage, treatment strategy and prognosis. A retrospective analysis was conducted of the clinical features of 1,168 lung cancer patients who were(More)
BACKGROUND The identification and contouring of target volume is important for breast-conserving therapy. The aim of the study was to compare preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), postoperative pathology, excised specimens' (ES) size, and tumor bed (TB) delineation as methods for determining the gross tumor volume (GTV) for radiotherapy after(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to analyze clinical data, including the types of pathologic classification, metastatic organs, treatment strategy, and prognosis of patients with stage IV lung cancer. METHODS A retrospective analysis of the clinical features of 539 patients with stage IV lung cancer who were initially diagnosed and treated in 2009 was(More)
