Genome-wide association study of diabetic retinopathy in a Taiwanese population.
PURPOSE Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a microvascular complication of diabetes with a complex multifactorial pathogenesis. The aim of this study was to identify the susceptibility genes that increaseExpand
Vascular endothelial growth factor gene polymorphisms in age-related macular degeneration.
PURPOSE To investigate vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) gene polymorphisms in unrelated Taiwan Chinese patients with late age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and controls. DESIGNExpand
Concurrent Verbalizations, Pedagogical Conditions, and Reactivity: Two CALL Studies
The article summarizes results from two experimental studies on reactivity. In the first experiment, 24 college-age participants received a computerized treatment that delivered a grammar lesson,Expand
Pigment epithelium-derived factor gene Met72Thr polymorphism is associated with increased risk of wet age-related macular degeneration.
PURPOSE To investigate the Met72Thr (T/C) polymorphism (rs1136287) of pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) gene exon 3 in unrelated Taiwan Chinese patients with late age-related macularExpand
Multilocus sequence typing of invasive group B Streptococcus in central area of Taiwan.
BACKGROUND Group B Streptococcus (GBS) (Streptococcus agalactiae) is an important pathogen in neonates, pregnant women, and adults with underlying disease. METHODS Fifty clinical isolates wereExpand
Flavones inhibit breast cancer proliferation through the Akt/FOXO3a signaling pathway
BackgroundFlavones found in plants display various biological activities, including anti-allergic, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidation, and anti-tumor effects. In this study, weExpand
The TGFbeta1 gene codon 10 polymorphism contributes to the genetic predisposition to high myopia.
PURPOSE Transforming growth factor-beta (TGFbeta), a multifunctional growth factor that plays a key role in the remodeling of scleral tissue, may be involved in the predisposition and pathophysiologyExpand
Crude extracts of Euchresta formosana radix induce cytotoxicity and apoptosis in human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line (Hep3B).
In this study, the effects of 95% ethanol extracts of Euchresta formosana radix (EFR) on the cell cycle and apoptosis in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) Hep3B cells were investigated. TheExpand
The impact of an interprofessional problem‐based learning curriculum of clinical ethics on medical and nursing students' attitudes and ability of interprofessional collaboration: A pilot study
Clinical ethic situations in modern multiprofessional healthcare systems may involve different healthcare professions who work together for patient care. The undergraduate interprofessional educationExpand
Interleukin gene polymorphisms in age-related macular degeneration.
PURPOSE To investigate polymorphisms in a candidate gene of interleukin (IL) in unrelated Taiwan Chinese patients with late age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and control subjects without AMD. Expand
