OBJECTIVE Cervical ectopic thymus (CET) is an extremely uncommon etiology of a neck mass in an infant. The aim of this study was to study and analyze the clinical manifestations, management principles, and pathological diagnosis of CET. METHODS From 1995 to 2010, a total of 25,237 cases of head and neck lesions were treated in the Department of Oral and(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to present our experience in the use of the mirroring tool in computer-aided simulation (CAS) as well as to describe its diversified uses and indications systematically. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 2006 and 2012, 144 patients underwent preoperative CAS with mirroring tool developed by our department called Accu-Navi(More)
Meat quality traits are economically important traits of swine, and are controlled by multiple genes as complex quantitative traits. In the present study four genes, H-FABP (heart fatty acid-binding protein), MASTR (MEF2 activating motif and SAP domain containing transcriptional regulator), UCP3 (uncoupling protein 3) and MYOD1 (myogenic differentiation 1)(More)
BACKGROUND Capecitabine has proven effective as a chemotherapy for metastatic breast cancer. Though several Phase II/III studies of capecitabine as neoadjuvant chemotherapy have been conducted, the results still remain inconsistent. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to obtain more precise understanding of the role of capecitabine in neoadjuvant(More)
PURPOSE Most trauma surgeons encounter numerous penetrating injuries. Some foreign bodies can cause pain, infection, and discomfort to the patient. Serious functional disorders also are likely to occur. Foreign bodies in critical areas must be removed. This report describes the use of image-guided technology for the removal of foreign bodies deep in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a rat model of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) that realistically mimics major clinical manifestations of the disease. METHODS Female Sprague Dawley rats received intravenous zoledronate 80 μg/kg once a week via the tail vein. Three weeks after intravenous injection, maxillary first molars were extracted(More)
Periductal stromal sarcoma (PSS), spindle and epithelioid types, is a rare subtype of malignant fibroepithelial tumor. The morphological characteristics of this neoplasm are different from phyllodes tumor and stromal sarcoma. PSS exhibits biphasic histology with benign ductal elements and a sarcomatous stroma composed of spindle cells and lacking phyllodes(More)
We report a novel system (W2600) that is based on the technology of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) to genotype human papillomavirus (HPV). The system permitted detection of 24 known HPV genotypes, including 16 high-risk types (HPV 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 53, 56, 58, 59, 66, 68, 81) and 8 low-risk types (HPV 6, 11, 40, 42, 43, 44, 54, 70).(More)
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an important component of extracellular matrix (ECM) in many tissues, providing a hemocompatible and supportive environment for cell growth. In this study, glycidyl methacrylate-hyaluronic acid (GMHA) was first synthesized and verified by proton nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H NMR) spectroscopy. GMHA was then grafted to the surface(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric cancer remains a major cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. In recent years, gene-based therapeutic strategies were confirmed promising in cancer inhibition and attracted great attention. RNA interference (RNAi) is a powerful tool for gene therapy and has been widely employed to aid in treatment for various diseases, especially(More)
