The variety of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (B. burgdorferi) genospecies leads to distinction in clinical manifestations of Lyme borreliosis (LB). There are reports of LB clinical characteristics in China, where the B. burgdorferi genospecies in ticks and animal hosts are different from those in Europe and North America. During May to September in 2010(More)
This study investigated the morphological characteristics of myocardial bridges (MBs) using optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging compared with coronary artery angiography (CAG) and also evaluated atherosclerotic lesions in the proximal segments of MBs. Twelve patients (seven males, five females, age range 36 - 81 years) with MBs in the left anterior(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the pathological response in the tumor tissue and the changes of serum level of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in esophageal cancer patients receiving concurrent chemoradiotherapy, in order to study the impacts of these two factors on the prognosis of patients. METHODS One hundred pathologically confirmed esophageal cancer(More)
Objective: To investigate the associations between various blood test parameters including MLR (monocyte-lymphocyte ratio) and prognosis in post-operative esophagogastric junction cancer patients. Methods: We retrospectively studied the preoperative and postoperative data of 309 patients who underwent radical surgery for esophagogastric junction cancer. The(More)
Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), which play a crucial role in the tumor microenvironment, can be divided into M1 and M2 phenotypes, these phenotypes may exert opposite effects on the prognoses of patients with gastric cancer (GC). The association between TAMs and GC is contentious. Thus, a meta-analysis of 12 studies (incorporating 1388 patients)(More)
Experimental studies on more rational route and preparation of preoperative administration of 5-Fu were undertaken from March 1981 to June 1985. The experimental observation shows that intrarectal administration of radioisotope 14C tagged 5-Fu (suppository and emulsion) produces a much higher concentration in the rectal wall and mesenteric lymph nodes(More)
