Akt plays an important role in the inhibition of apoptosis induced by chemotherapy and other stimuli. We therefore investigated if knockdown of Akt2 promoted drug-induced apoptosis in cultured osteosarcoma cells in vitro. SAOS-2 cells were transfected with Akt2 siRNA. The sensitivity of the transformed cell line to the chemotherapeutic drug cisplatin was(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The choice of either all-polyethylene (AP) tibial components or metal-backed (MB) tibial components in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) remains controversial. We therefore performed a meta-analysis and systematic review of randomized controlled trials that have evaluated MB and AP tibial components in primary TKA. METHODS The search(More)
A retrospective study to evaluate the effectiveness of 3-dimensional rapid prototyping (3DRP) technology in corrective surgery for Lenke 1 adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients. 3DRP technology has been widely used in medical field; however, no study has been performed on the effectiveness of 3DRP technology in corrective surgery for Lenke 1 AIS(More)
Rising atmospheric CO₂ concentrations will probably increase rice (Oryza sativa L.) yield but decrease grain nitrogen (GN) concentration. Grains attached to different positions in the panicles differ greatly in weight and quality, but their responses to elevated CO₂ (e[CO₂]) are poorly understood, which limits our understanding of the mechanisms of yield(More)
In this paper, the problem of business component reuse is researched in the integration of rapid reconfigurable enterprise information system. The model of function component is provided, which is based on analyzing and abstracting function commonness from different components in business component domain, the compiling parameters of function component(More)
In this article, a retrospective analysis of 161 female patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is performed who underwent posterior correction and fusion using all-pedicle screw instrument.The aim of this article is to find out preoperative factors that influence intraoperative blood loss (IOBL) in female patients with AIS.The IOBL in posterior(More)
The aim of the study was to explore the significance of T1 pelvic angle (TPA) for assessment of sagittal balance in a cohort of Chinese patients with unspecific low back pain. TPA has been commonly used to assess sagittal balance in adult spinal deformity. However, whether TPA could be used to assess sagittal balance in patients with unspecific low back(More)
