BACKGROUND How hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection react to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treatment remains unclear, and the roles of anti-HBV therapy were seldom reported in HCC. AIMS To evaluate changes of HBV replication and liver function after hepatectomy or transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) for HCC, also the short-term effects of anti-viral(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate our experience with the application of endoscopic sonography in preoperative staging of rectal cancer. METHODS Between April 2004 and May 2010, 192 patients with rectal cancer first underwent endoscopic sonography and then underwent surgery at our hospital. None of the patients in this study received(More)
Nonsurgical therapies have become treatment options for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This study was to evaluate the efficacy and complications of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment for patients with HCC. Between May 2001 and May 2005, 145 patients with HCC were enrolled for treatments using a HIFU tumor therapeutic system. Clinical(More)
Expression of OsHsfB2b was strongly induced by heat, salt, ABA and PEG treatments. Drought and salt tolerances were significantly decreased by OsHsfB2b overexpression, but were enhanced by RNA interference. Plants have more than 20 heat shock factors (Hsfs) that were designated class A, B, and C. Many members of Class A Hsfs were characterized as activators(More)
Primary lung cancer is the fourth most frequently diagnosed cancer, but gastric metastasis from lung cancer is extremely rare. Little is known about its clinicopathological features, prognosis and optimal treatment strategy. The present study reports a case of primary lung cancer that metastasized to the stomach and to the best of our knowledge, is the(More)
To comprehend the gene expression profile in rice panicle under high temperature, Agilent 4×44K rice oligo microarray experiments were carried out using rice post-meiosis panicle treated at 40 centigrade degree for 0 min, 10 min, 20 min, 60 min, and 2 h. The time course differentially expressed genes under heat stress were mainly involved in protein(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical application of quantitative evaluation of the focus range of juvenile onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (JO-RRP). METHOD Disease severity was scored as the sum of ratings of 1 (minimal), 2 (moderate), or 3 (severe) for involvement of 22 areas of the respiratory tract and digestive tract. Sixty-eight cases(More)
Introduction: We used the TNM staging matched-pair approach to compare the efficacies of surgery after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (NCT), surgery alone and definitive chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) in patients with localized advanced thoracic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Methods: A total of 642 patients with ESCC from previous studies were(More)
Arabidopsis TEMPRANILLO 1 (AtTEM1) is a member of the RAV transcription factor subfamily and has plant-specific AP2 and B3 domains. This study demonstrated that AtTEM1 is localized in nuclei. Expression of AtTEM1 was discovered to be high in the flower, stem, rosette, and cauline leaf, but low in the silique and root tissue, and was strongly induced by(More)
