Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common disease with a poorly understood pathophysiological mechanism. Increasing evidence indicates that AF may be associated with immunologic inflammation responses, but it remains unclear whether activation of peripheral blood CD3(+) T-lymphocytes plays a role in the pathogenesis of AF. The aim of this study was to evaluate(More)
Combination therapy had become very popular currently for the diabetes mellitus and its complications, because of long term unreasonable drug use and adverse reaction to human body. In this study, a polysaccharide (ASP) from the roots of Acanthopanax senticosus was evaluated as an adjuvant with metformin for antidiabetic therapy in alloxan-induced diabetic(More)
To investigate the effect of serum leptin level and leptin receptor (Lepr) genetic mutation on chronic bronchitis, we measured the serum leptin levels of 236 patients with chronic bronchitis and 107 healthy controls by ELISA, the genotype distribution of Lepr gene containing Gln223Arg polymorphic sites by the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment(More)
JAK/STAT pathway transmits signals from the cell membrane to the nucleus in response to extracellular growth factors and cytokines. Activation of this pathway has been found in certain types of human tumors. The goal of this study was to investigate the correlation between the JAK/STAT pathway in human gliomas and patients' prognosis, which currently is(More)
AIM Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-14 and MMP-19 have been demonstrated to play an important role in the development of human gliomas. However, their prognostic values are not clear. The aim of this study was to investigate whether co-expression of MMP-14 and MMP-19 has prognostic relevance in human gliomas. METHODS Immunohistochemistry and western blot(More)
FAT10, as a small ubiquitin-like modifier, plays an important role in various cellular processes, including mitosis, immune response, and apoptosis, the dys-regulation of which may arise tumorigenesis. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the expression of FAT10 at gene and protein levels in glioma samples with different WHO grades and its(More)
OBJECTIVE Neuroepithelial-transforming protein 1 is a member of the guanine nucleotide exchange factor family, a group of proteins which are known to activate and thereby regulate Rho family members. Deregulation of neuroepithelial-transforming protein 1 expression has been found in certain types of human tumors. To investigate its prognostic value in human(More)
AIM To examine the expression of N-methylpurine-DNA glycosylase (MPG) gene and protein in glioma samples with different WHO grades and its association with patients' survival. METHODS Immunohistochemistry assay, quantitative real-time PCR and Western blot analysis were carried out to investigate the expression of MPG gene and protein in 128 glioma and 10(More)
The objective of the study is to evaluate Homer1 expression in rats with Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and investigate the mechanism by which Homer1 influences the pathogenesis of diabetes through study on rat model with decreased Homer1 expression. Rat model of T2DM was constructed and blood insulin concentration was measured. Homer1 mRNA and protein(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of mifepristone on apoptosis and expression of relative genes in early pregnant chorionic villi and decidua. METHODS The specimen of early pregnant chorionic villi and decidua obtained from 10 cases of requesting termination of pregnancy by curettage, 20 cases of mifepriston contragestation. The paraffin sections were(More)
