We report a 41-year-old Chinese woman with intravascular large B-cell lymphoma diagnosed by percutaneous renal biopsy. The patient was admitted to Nanfang Hospital of Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China with complaints of high spiking fever for a month and bilateral lower limb fatigue with difficulty ambulating for the past 5 months.She had renal(More)
The effect of air pollution on the changing pattern of glomerulopathy has not been studied. We estimated the profile of and temporal change in glomerular diseases in an 11-year renal biopsy series including 71,151 native biopsies at 938 hospitals spanning 282 cities in China from 2004 to 2014, and examined the association of long-term exposure to fine(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)
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) have been used to deliver single-stranded (ssDNA). ssDNA in oligonucleotide can act as an inhibitor of microRNA to regulate cellular functions. However, these ssDNA are difficult to bind carbon nanotubes with low transferring efficiency to cells. To this end, we designed ssDNA with regulatory and functional units to(More)
Anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) disease is characterized by crescentic glomerulonephritis with immunoglobulin G (IgG) autoantibodies to the non-collagenous (NC1) domain of α3(IV) collagen presenting along the GBM. The patient clinically manifests with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) (More)
Infective endocarditis (IE) is a serious disease with a high associated mortality rate, particularly when complicated by acute renal failure (ARF). Although valve surgery and treatment with antibiotic agents are recommended, surgical options and the optimal therapy are not as yet well documented. Here, we report a rare case of IE in a young man with a(More)
INTRODUCTION Because of their immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been considered as potential therapeutic agents for treating immune-related or autoimmune diseases, such as graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Nephrotic syndrome (NS) after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is an(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate the feasibility and clinical value of computed tomography (CT)-guided iodine 125 ((125)I) brachytherapy to treat bilateral lung recurrences from colorectal carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center Institutional Review Board and all patients provided informed written(More)
The detection of explosives is a challenging topic. The nitrogen-14 nuclear quadrupole resonance technique exploits the transitions between the energy levels split by the quadrupole interaction to detect the presence of explosives. It is a very promising new technique owing to its unambiguous detection and identification of explosives with low false alarm,(More)
