A nanocarrier, namely, hydroxylethyl-chitosan nanoparticles was developed in this research for delivering antioxidants with 6-hydroxy-2, 5, 7, 8-tetra-methylchromane-2-carboxylic acid (trolox) as a model antioxidant. The trolox-encapsulated chitosan nanoparticles (trolox-CS NPs) were prepared by modifying chitosan with epoxyethane, which self-assembled into(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between obesity and hypertension varies with geographical area, race and definitions of obesity. Our study aimed to investigate the prevalence of obesity using standard Chinese criteria based on the body mass index (BMI) and the waist circumference (WC) and to examine the association between obesity and hypertension among(More)
The aim of the present study was to determine the protection of allogeneic bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) on an ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R)‑induced acute kidney injury (AKI) rat model and to investigate the underlying mechanisms. The BMSCs were isolated and cultured from adult Sprague‑Dawley (SD) rats and the I/R‑induced AKI model was(More)
The overall incidence and mortality of renal cell carcinoma (RCC), the most common kidney cancer, are steadily increasing for reasons that are not fully explained. Our aim was to explore the expression of membrane MHC class I chain-related gene A (mMICA) in human RCC cell lines and tissue specimens, and to determine expression of soluble MICA (sMICA) in(More)
Encapsulating anticancer drugs to synthetic polymer is a promising approach to improve the efficiency and reduce the side effects of anticancer drugs. In this study, novel chitosan derivatives with polyamidoamine moieties (CS-PAMAM) were synthesized and characterized by morphology, particle size, and zeta potential. Then the anticancer(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between the expression of thymidylate synthase (TS) gene and the prognosis of colorectal carcinoma and between the TS expression and the effect of 5-fluorouracil (5-Fu) on advanced colorectal carcinoma. METHODS 134 formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded specimens of colorectal carcinoma obtained during operation from 134(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationships among the expression of thymidylate synthase (TS), thymidine phosphorylase (TP), and dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) and the prognosis of breast cancer. METHODS Immunochemistry (ABC method) was used to detect the expression of TS, TP, and DPD in the samples of breast cancer resected during operation from 28(More)
OBJECTIVE To systematically assess imaging diagnostic tests for fatty liver and provide a decision-making basis for clinical diagnosis and screening. METHODS Electronic searches were conducted on the Chinese Biomedical Database, PubMed, and EMBASE, combining with manually searching of Chinese literature. All searches were completed until November 2002.(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to investigation the roles of MHC class I chain-related gene A(MICA) and natural killer cell group 2D(NKG2D) in human renal cancer cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS The expression of membrane MICA (mMICA) on renal cells and NKG2D on NK cells were detected by flow cytometry (FCM); the content of sMICA were detected by enzyme linked(More)
In the present study, five cyclic nitrone superoxide spin adducts, i.e. DMPO-OOH, M(3)PO-OOH, EMPO-OOH, DEPMPO-OOH and DEPDMPO-OOH, were chosen as model compounds to investigate the effect of 2,5-subsitituents on their stability, through structural analysis and decay thermodynamics using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Analysis of the(More)
