BACKGROUND Electronic medical record (EMR) systems have potential to improve care quality and efficiency. Yet little is known about the effects of EMR in Chinese hospitals. OBJECTIVE An inpatient EMR system was implemented in a large Chinese hospital. The objective of this research was to evaluate the impact of the EMR system on efficiency, quality, and(More)
The objective was to evaluate the clinical value of preventative ileostomy following ultralow anterior rectal resection in decreasing the incidence of anastomotic leakage. For this purpose, 62 cases that had undergone ultralow anterior rectal resection during the period from June 2007 to June 2008 were included in this study. Preventative ileostomy was(More)
Isoporous membranes are versatile structures with numerous potential and realized applications in various fields of science such as micro/nanofiltration, cell separation and harvesting, controlled drug delivery, optics, gas separation, and chromatography. Recent advances in micro/nanofabrication techniques and material synthesis provide novel methods toward(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the prognostic value of 18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) in therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to further analyze the possible risk factors contributing to overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS). We retrospectively analyzed fifty patients between June(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ) is important in tumor differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis. However, the effect and mechanism of PPAR-γ on the promotion of cisplatin sensitivity in glioma cells remain to be elucidated. The present study established cisplatin-resistant U-87 MG/CDDP cell lines and U-87 MG/CDDP cell lines(More)
The basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor activating enhancer‑binding protein (AP)-4 has been found to be involved in tumor biology. However, the role of AP-4 in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has yet to be elucidated. The present study aimed to investigate the role of AP-4 expression in NSCLC. AP-4 expression as analyzed using quantitative(More)
To investigate the pathological changes of canine brain after irradiation and evaluate the effect of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), 25 healthy dogs were treated with 70 Gy (60)Coγ-ray irradiation on right temporal brain. Respectively, the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of canine alba and ectocinerea were measured by MRI T1 weighted imaging(More)
Pancreatic cancer is a highly lethal disease with a 5-year survival rate less than 5% due to the lack of an early diagnosis method and effective therapy. To provide a novel early diagnostic method and targeted therapy for pancreatic cancer, a multifunctional nanoimmunoliposome with high loading of ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxides (USPIOs) and(More)
The development of novel antitumor drugs for the treatment of non-small cell lung carcinoma NSCLC is imperative in order to improve the efficacy of lung cancer therapy and prognosis. In the current study, we demonstrated the antitumor activity of isorhamnetin and its combinations with cisplatin and carboplatin against A-549 lung cancer cells. In order to(More)
This paper studies the effects of Lobelia chinensis on colon precancerous lesions and on colonic epithelial proliferation and apoptosis in DMH-induced rats. After two weeks of feeding, 50 Wistar rats were randomly divided into five groups, namely the normal group, model group, Lobelia chinensis low-dose group, medium-dose group and high-dose group. Lobelia(More)
