Glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) is an important enzyme playing critical roles in the phase II detoxification pathway. There were many studies investigating the association between GSTP1 gene Ile105Val polymorphism and gastric cancer risk, but studies from East Asians reported inconsistent findings. We performed a meta-analysis to investigate the(More)
Chemokine-like factor 1 (CKLF1) is a novel functional cytokine that acts through its receptor CC chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4). Activation of CCR4 by CKLF1 plays an important role in diseases such as asthma and multiple sclerosis. This article describes a cell-based screening assay using an FITC-labeled CCR4 agonist (CKLF1-C27), a CKLF1 peptide fragment.(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the short and long-term efficacy of combining Fuzhengliqi mixture (FLM) with acupuncture in treating functional constipation (FC). METHODS The 560 patients with confirmed diagnosis of FC were randomly assigned to four groups: FLM group, acupuncture group, combined therapy group, and control group. There were 140 cases in each group.(More)
A study was carried out using simulation to investigate driver responses to lineside signals and signs at various approach speeds. The objectives of the study were: (1) to find out whether train speed would significantly affect signal/sign reading; (2) to examine at which point certain types of signs or signals could be detected or recognised, and (3) to(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the association between MDR1 gene polymorphisms and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) risk. Genomic DNA of 1431 subjects was extracted from peripheral blood and genotyping was performed using the created restriction site-polymerase chain reaction (CRS-PCR). We found that the c.1465C > T single nucleotide(More)
Deregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) is known to be associated with drug resistance in human cancers. However, the precise role of miR‑101 in the cisplatin (DPP) resistance of human gastric cancer cells has not been elucidated, yet. The present study revealed that miR‑101 was markedly downregulated in gastric cancer cell lines compared to that in the normal(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the clinical curative effect, safety and mechanism of action of electroacupuncture combined with Zhizhukuanzhong capsules (ZZKZC) in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). METHODS A total of 480 patients with confirmed GERD were randomly divided into four groups: the electroacupuncture group, the ZZKZC group, the combined(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the correlation between Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori) infection and polymorphism of adiponectin gene promoter -11391G/A, extracellular superoxide dismutase (EC-SOD) gene in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
 METHODS From June, 2010 to July, 2014, a hospital-based 1:1 matched case-control study was carried out, with 600(More)
MicroRNA (miR)‑145 has been demonstrated to act as a tumor suppressor, and deregulation of fascin 1 (FSCN1) has been observed in several types of human malignancy, including gastric carcinoma. However, the molecular mechanism underlying the function of miR‑145, specifically its targets in gastric carcinoma have yet to be fully elucidated. In the present(More)
With the register detection problem, the color textile image segmentation algorithm based on MeanShift and the block matching algorithm based on Harris corner detection were proposed. The extended MeanShift algorithm was used to segment the textile image, and then different color regions were extracted from the segmented standard image; then the feature(More)
