Since body fatness is a convincing risk factor for endometrial cancer, dietary fat intake was speculated to be associated with endometrial cancer risk. However, epidemiological studies are inconclusive. We aimed to conduct a meta-analysis to assess the associations between dietary fat intake and endometrial cancer risk. We searched the PubMed, Embase, and(More)
BACKGROUND Cultivated bananas are large, vegetatively-propagated members of the genus Musa. More than 1,000 cultivars are grown worldwide and they are major economic and food resources in numerous developing countries. It has been suggested that cultivated bananas originated from the islands of Southeast Asia (ISEA) and have been developed through complex(More)
Aurora kinase A (AurA) regulates genomic instability and tumorigenesis in multiple cancer types. Although some studies have reported that Aur A may predict cervical cancer outcomes, its precise function and molecular mechanism in cervical cancer pathogenesis remain unclear. In this study, by overexpression or silencing of Aur A in cervical cancer cell(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of fertility-sparing treatment with progestins in patients with well-differentiated endometrial adenocarcinoma in women 40 years old or younger. METHODS Six patients before the age of 40 diagnosed with grade I endometrial adenocarcinoma, who had undergone primary progestin treatment, were retrospectively(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the feasibility and efficacy of curettage with hysteroscopy followed by megestrol acetate (MA) for well-differentiated endometrioid carcinoma (EC) confined to the endometrium and for atypical hyperplasia (AH) in young women. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fourteen patients with EC and 12 patients with AH were prospectively enrolled in this(More)
OBJECTIVE To study on clinical role of acupuncture at Tanzhong (CV 17) for treatment of postpartum hypolactation and to provide clinical basis for indications of acupoints. METHODS This was a single blind randomized controlled multi-center study by Beijing obstetrical and gynecological hospital, Beijing Mother and Child health institute and Haidian Mother(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the feasibility of sentinel lymph node (SLN) detection in patients with cervical cancer undergoing radical hysterectomy. METHODS Twenty patients with cervical cancer at stage Ib (n = 3), stage IIa (n = 12) and stage IIb (n = 5) underwent SLNs detection by using blue dye. Four ml of methylene blue or lymphazurin was injected into(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinico-pathological characteristics, prognostic factors and the rational therapy for the uterine papillary serous carcinoma (UPSC). METHODS Thirty-three cases of UPSC were treated in our hospital between January 1996 and December 2005. The clinico-pathologic characteristics, treatment and prognosis were retrospectively analyzed.(More)
Natural selection is thought to be a driving force that can cause the evolution of reproductive isolation. The genus Aquilegia is a model system to address how natural selection promotes the process of speciation. Morphological differences between A. oxysepala, A. japonica and their hybrids were quantified for two vegetative (plant height and leaf area) and(More)
