BACKGROUND No single standard treatment exists for patients with small, node-negative, human epidermal growth factor receptor type 2 (HER2)-positive breast cancers, because most of these patients have been ineligible for the pivotal trials of adjuvant trastuzumab. METHODS We performed an uncontrolled, single-group, multicenter, investigator-initiated(More)
Resting state functional brain networks have been widely studied in brain disease research. However, it is currently unclear whether abnormal resting state functional brain network metrics can be used with machine learning for the classification of brain diseases. Resting state functional brain networks were constructed for 28 healthy controls and 38 major(More)
Curcumin is a major constituent of curcuma longa, a traditional medicine used to manage mental disorders effectively in China. The neuroprotective effects of curcumin have been demonstrated in our previous studies. In the present research, we confirmed this effect by showing that curcumin application promoted the viability of cultured rodent cortical(More)
OBJECTIVE Diabetic encephalopathy is characterised by cognitive impairment, neurochemical and structural abnormalities. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of ibuprofen on diabetic encephalopathy and potential mechanisms. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHOD Diabetes was induced through a single intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (60(More)
GSK3β genotypes may interact with major depressive disorder (MDD) and may have a role in determining regional gray matter volume differences from healthy comparison subjects. However, any associations of GSK3β genotypes with MDD related to abnormal functional brain activity have yet to be elucidated. In the present study, resting state functional brain(More)
Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA) is a rare inherited disorder of the peripheral nervous system resulting from mutations in neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor 1 gene (NTRK1), which encodes the high-affinity nerve growth factor receptor TRKA. Here, we investigated the oral and craniofacial manifestations of a Chinese patient affected(More)
BACKGROUND Neuron loss, glial activation and vascular degeneration are common sequelae of ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in ocular diseases. The present study was conducted to explore the ability of curcumin to inhibit retinal I/R injury, and to investigate underlying mechanisms of the drug effects. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Different dosages of(More)
BACKGROUND The NADH-ubiquinone oxidoreductase flavoprotein gene (NDUFV2), which encodes a 24 kD mitochondrial complex I subunit, has been reported to be positively associated with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in different populations. METHODS We genotyped the promoter variants of this gene (rs6506640 and rs1156044) by direct sequencing in 529(More)
