BACKGROUND Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have recently received wide attention as key molecules that mediate a variety of physiological and pathological processes by regulating gene expression; however, knowledge of lncRNAs in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is limited. Thus, we investigated the lncRNA expression profile in fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs)(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the prediction value of preoperative serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) level for the prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), by comparing pathological characteristics, recurrence rate and survival rate after hepatectomy. METHODS 108 cases of HCC patients who received liver resection in our hospital from 2005 to 2011 were(More)
The objective of the study is to investigate potential citrullinated autoantigens as targets of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs) response in synovial fluids (SFs) of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). SFs from six RA patients and six osteoarthritis (OA) patients as controls were collected. The citrullinated proteins in SFs were extracted(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the feasibility of establishing an animal model of chronic radiation-induced lung injury. METHODS Twenty-eight New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into 3 groups (the right lung irradiation group, the whole lung irradiation group and the control group). Animal model of radiation-induced lung injury was established by(More)
BACKGROUND A number of studies have investigated the association between increased pretreatment serum C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and the prognosis of gastric cancer. However, due to the inconsistent results, whether the serum CRP level can be a prognostic factor in primary gastric cancer remains controversial. METHODS We searched Medline, PubMed,(More)
BACKGROUND Retroperitoneal Schwannomas are uncommonly found in the retroperitoneum and few of them show malignant transformation and invasion. Local recurrence are common in malignant Schwannomas with very few reports of tumor distinct differentiation at recurrences. CASE PRESENTATION We report here a rare case of retroperitoneal schwannoma with multiple(More)
With the rapid development of high-speed railway in China, it is very important to study on comfort of high-speed trains. On the basis of the comprehensive evaluation model of comfort based on rough set theory and fuzzy theory for high-speed railway, the paper has established a method of extraction and optimization for evaluation rules by rough set theory(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of preoperative plasma intermedin levels in breast cancer patients. Plasma intermedin levels of 252 breast cancer women and 100 healthy women were determined using radioimmunoassay kit. Adverse event was defined as first local recurrence, distant metastasis, second primary cancer of another organ, or death(More)
We report a case of intracardiac mesothelioma complicated by chronic disseminated intravascular coagulopathy in a 50-year-old woman. Her symptoms were completely relieved by emergency resection of the tumor. Primary resection of the intracardiac mesothelioma is adequate treatment for this complicated surgical problem.
Long noncoding RNAs play an important role in various biological processes, including tumorigenesis. FOXC1 (Forkhead box C1) is a member of the Forkhead box family of transcription factors and plays a crucial role in nasopharyngeal carcinoma. In this study, a novel long noncoding RNA (FOXCUT) located upstream of FOXC1 was investigated in 42 nasopharyngeal(More)
