A series of dual inhibitors containing a 1,5-diarylpyrazole and a urea were designed, synthesized, and evaluated as novel COX-2/sEH dual inhibitors in vitro using recombinant enzyme assays and in vivo using a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induced model of pain in rats. The best inhibition potencies and selectivity for sEH and COX-2 over COX-1 were obtained with(More)
To gain molecular insights of HBV integration that may contribute to HCC tumorigenesis, we performed whole transcriptome sequencing and whole genome copy number profiling of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) samples from 50 Chinese patients. We identified a total of 33 HBV-human integration sites in 16 of 44 HBV-positive HCC tissues, which were enriched in HBV(More)
BACKGROUND Glioblastoma arises from complex interactions between a variety of genetic alterations and environmental perturbations. Little attention has been paid to understanding how genetic variations, altered gene expression and microRNA (miRNA) expression are integrated into networks which act together to alter regulation and finally lead to the(More)
Glioblastoma is the most common primary brain tumor in adults. Here we present an integrated analysis of microRNA expression and gene expression in 237 tumor tissues and 10 normal tissues. We indentified 1,236 genes, and 131 pathways significantly differentially expressed between tumor and normal tissues. We also indentified 98 differentially expressed(More)
Although great progress in genome-wide association studies (GWAS) has been made, the significant SNP associations identified by GWAS account for only a few percent of the genetic variance, leading many to question where and how we can find the missing heritability. There is increasing interest in genome-wide interaction analysis as a possible source of(More)
Texture is an important property of fire smoke, which is a significant signal for early fire detection. This paper describes a method of analyzing the texture of fire smoke combining two innovative texture analysis tools, Wavelet Analysis and Gray Level Cooccurrence Matrices (GLCM). Tree-Structured Wavelet transform is used to represent the textural images(More)
A comprehensive proteomic study was carried out to identify and characterize proteins expressed by Bifidobacterium longum NCC2705. A total of 708 spots representing 369 protein entries were identified by MALDI-TOF-MS and/or ESI-MS/MS. Isoelectric point values estimated by gel electrophoresis matched closely with their predicted ones, although some(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and clinical response of brodalumab (AMG 827), a human, anti-IL-17 receptor A (IL-17RA) monoclonal antibody in subjects with moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS This phase Ib, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind multiple ascending dose study(More)
