OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to explore the clinical significance of neutrophils infiltration and carcinoembryonic antigen related cell adhesion molecule 1 (CEACAM1) expression in the tongue squamous cell carcinoma (TSCC), and to probe the possible relationship between them. MATERIALS AND METHODS Tissue microarray and immunohistochemistry were used(More)
Gastric mucosa is one of the most vulnerable tissues in human and animal. However, little is known about the effects of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) on gastric mucosa injuries induced by gastric ischemia reperfusion. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the protective effects and mechanism of CGRP on gastric mucosa injury after(More)
High is the incidence of gastrointestinal dysfunction induced by cerebrovascular disease. However, little is known about the effects of CGRP on gastrointestinal injuries induced by cerebrovascular disease. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the protective effects of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) on gastric mucosa injury after focal(More)
Cerebral ischemia is one of the diseases that most compromise the human species. Therapeutic recovery of blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption represents a novel promising approach to reduce brain injury after stroke. To determine the effects of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) on the BBB participate in stroke progression, rat cerebral ischemia(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) administration could produce neuroprotective effects after brain ischemia reperfusion in rats. Brain ischemia reperfusion injury was induced by a 2-hour left middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) using an intraluminal filament, followed by 46hours of reperfusion. CGRP(More)
Both galanin (Gal) and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) are sensory neuropeptides which expressed in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons and are involved in nociceptive processing. Capsaicin (CAP) influences nociceptive processing via influencing the expression of sensory neuropeptides in primary sensory neurons. However, little is known about the(More)
Neuregulin-1β (NRG-1β) is a growth factor with potent neuroprotective capacity. Growth-associated protein 43 (GAP-43) is expressed in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons and an indicator of neuronal survival in vitro. The purpose of present study is to evaluate the effects of NRG-1β on GAP-43 expression in DRG neurons with excitotoxicity induced by glutamate(More)
Three-dimensional excitation emission matrix (EEM) fluorescence spectroscopy was employed to investigate the structural properties and Hg(II)-binding behavior of humic substances (HS) extracted from different landfill stabilization processes. The EEM fluorescence properties of humic acid (HA) are characterized by intense fluorescence at Ex/Em=440/500 nm and(More)
Brain edema is a major consequence of cerebral ischemia reperfusion. However, few effective therapeutic options are available for retarding the brain edema progression after cerebral ischemia. Recently, rapamycin has been shown to produce neuroprotective effects in rats after cerebral ischemia reperfusion. Whether rapamycin could alleviate this brain edema(More)
HIV envelope glycoprotein gp120 is highly involved in HIV infection-related peripheral neuropathy, but its mechanism remains incompletely understood. The therapy of this neuropathy is still a big clinical challenge for neurologists. The organotypically cultured dorsal root ganglion (DRG) explants were used to test the neurotoxic actions of gp120 and the(More)
