Arsenic is a notorious environmental toxicant known as both a carcinogen and an atherogen in human beings, but the pathogenic mechanisms are not completely understood. In cell culture studies, trivalent arsenic enhanced oxidative stress in a variety of mammalian cells, and this association may be closely associated with the development of arsenic-related(More)
Acute encephalitis is a common CNS infectious disease in children. However, there are limited studies concerning about the correlation between the clinical evaluations and neurological outcome. To investigate the value of neurological evaluations, and the correlation between these evaluations and neurological outcomes of acute encephalitis, in the present(More)
Phthalates may increase the asthma risk in children. Mechanisms underlying this association remain to be addressed. This study assesses the effect of phthalate exposures on epigenetic changes and the role of epigenetic changes for asthma. In the first step, urine and blood samples from 256 children of the Childhood Environment and Allergic diseases Study(More)
Introduction: Because of the high incidence and poor prognosis of gliomas, the development of pre-clinically effective diagnostic tools is of great importance. The objective of this study is to validate the use of FDG PET imaging system for monitoring glioma proliferation in two rodent models. Methods: Two kinds of glioblastoma cells (human DBTRG-05MG and(More)
Background: Phthalate exposure may increase the risk of asthma. Little is known about whether oxidative-stress related genes may alter this association. First, this motivated us to investigate whether genetic polymorphisms of the oxidative-stress related genes glutathione S-transferase Mu 1 (GSTM1), glutathione S-transferase pi 1 (GSTP1), superoxide(More)
