The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an endothelial cell-specific mitogen involved in the process of angiogenesis, a crucial phase in tumor growth and metastasis. We carried out a case-control study to evaluate whether VEGF -2578C/A gene polymorphism modulates the risk of developing colon cancer. A total of 110 colon cancer patients and 110(More)
This study investigated the role of adult islet-derived stem cells in repairing islet damage. Using intraperitoneal injection of cerulein, a rat model of acute pancreatitis was induced in an experimental group. The expression of the protein c-kit, a pancreatic stem cell marker, was observed using immunohistochemistry at set intervals following successful(More)
BACKGROUND Individualized therapeutic regimen is a recently intensively pursued approach for targeting diseases, in which the search for biomarkers was considered the first and most important. Thus, the goal of this study was to investigate whether the UGT1A1, ERCC1, BRCA1, TYMS, RRM1, TUBB3, STMN1 and TOP2A genes are underlying biomarkers for gastric(More)
The feasibility and safety of Hand-assisted laparoscopic D2 radical gastrectomy (HALG) have been seldom reported, also, benefits and outcomes are not defined. We performed a comprehensive and in-depth comparative analysis of the general information, the intraoperative data and postoperative data in the Group HALG and the Group laparoscopy-assisted D2(More)
OBJECTIVE To systematically assess the safety and efficacy of hand-assisted laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (HALG) versus open distal gastrectomy (ODG) for gastric cancer. METHODS Chinese or English literature regarding comparison of HALG and ODG were collected by searching in databases (such as PubMed, Cochrane Library, CNKI, Wanfang database) between(More)
We have grown 300 mm silicon single crystals using a 28" hot zone with 200 kg charge size. The mechanical strength of silicon seeds was tested and a new style seed and chuck were developed for safer operation. Oxygen concentration and radial gradient (ORG) were controlled to /spl plusmn/2.5 ppma between 33 and 23 ppma and to less than 5% respectively.(More)
Three-step hand-assisted laparoscopic D2 radical gastrectomy (HALG) is a modified surgical procedure that has achieved satisfactory results for obese patients in our surgical center. To fully elucidate the advantages of this procedure, in this study, comprehensive and in-depth comparative analyses were performed to assess clinical data from obese gastric(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer has become a widely used surgical strategy in the treatment of rectal cancer. Laparoscopic rectal cancer surgery aims to provide patients with curative resection as well as minimize postoperative morbidity. This study was designed to analyze the foreseeable risk factors linked to(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of collagen type I and the mRNA level of its regulatory factor, TGF-β1, in tissue samples of acute pancreatitis and to determine the significance of collagen type I in predisposition to pancreatic fibrosis during acute pancreatitis. METHODS Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into an(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical efficacy of the lymph node dissection patterns of the reverse and the traditional cabbage in hand-assisted laparoscopic D2 radical gastrectomy (HALG). METHODS From December 2010 to October 2013, 194 patients with HALG in Chengdu Military General Hospital were enrolled in this study. According to the pattern of lymph node(More)
