BACKGROUND The clinical failure after prostatic artery embolization (PAE) with conventional particles was relatively high, in treatment for lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). We reported the results of PAE with combined polyvinyl alcohol particles 50 μm and 100 μm in size as a primary treatment in 24 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expression of Nrf2/ARE pathway in hindbrain tissue after the traumatic brain injury (TBI) and its anti-oxidative stress effect in the secondary nerve injury. METHODS The mice with Nrf2 gene knockout were used for the establishment of brain injury model. The experimental animals were divided into four groups: (Nrf2(+)/(+))(More)
Little is known about the role of isorhamnetin on endothelial cell apoptosis and inflammation when insulted by TNF-α injury. In our study, HUVECs were treated with TNF-α for 6 hours. HUVECs apoptosis were detected using flow cytometry. The expressions of ICAM-1, VCAM-1, E-selectin, NF-κB, AP-1 and eNOS were determined with western blotting or flow(More)
Y-STR haplotype data were obtained in a population sample of 197 unrelated healthy male individuals of Chinese Tujia ethnic minority group residing in an autonomous county of Southern China using 17 Y-chromosome STR markers. A total of 197 haplotypes were identified in the set of Y-STR loci. The overall haplotype diversity for the Tujia population at 17(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the clinical effect of arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) construction with different transplants. METHODS From March 2006 to April 2009, 86 patients including 60 male and 26 female undergoing arthroscopic ACL reconstruction were prospectively randomized consecutively into autograft group (44 patients, using autogeneic(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine and analyze the global gene expression at the different stages of golden hamster cheek pouch mucosa carcinomatous change induced by 9,10-dimethylene-1,2 benzanthracene (DMBA). METHODS The model of golden hamster cheek pouch squamous cell carcinoma was induced by DMBA. The RNA of normal mucosa, precancerous lesions and squamous cell(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of fluorid on morphology change in enamel and dentin during tooth bleaching. METHODS The study population consisted of twelve patients who required the extraction of first premolars for orthodontic reasons. Twelve participants were divided into three groups: bleaching with NaF-treated group, bleaching-treated group and(More)
