Autoimmune vasculitis is believed to be a critical factor in the development of idiopathic childhood ischemic stroke. The association of polymorphisms in CTLA-4 and CD28 with some immune vasculitides, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and Behçet's disease has been reported. The aim of the present study is to investigate the association of the(More)
Neuronal apoptosis occurs in the diabetic brain due to insulin deficiency or insulin resistance, both of which reduce the expression of stem cell factor (SCF). We investigated the possible involvement of the activation of the MAPK/ERK and/or AKT pathways in neuroprotection by SCF in diabetes. Male C57/B6 mice (20-25 g) were randomly divided into four groups(More)

OBJECTIVE It has been shown that Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) could prevent or alleviate acute lung injury (ALI) when transplanted into lung; however, the mechanisms involved remains elusive. The study aimed to investigate the effect of MSCs in repairing alveolar fluid clearance (AFC) of alveolar type-II (AT-II) cells through paracrine factors. MATERIALS(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C) and vascular endothelial growth factor D (VEGF-D) are potent lymphangiogenic and angiogenetic mediators in many kinds of tumors. However, the exact impacts of VEGF-C and VEGF-D on the prognosis of colorectal cancer (CRC) remain elusive. The aims of this study were to demonstrate the expression of(More)
Estrogen receptor α (ERα) is related with epithelial–mesenchymal transition, invasion and metastasis, and serves as an important therapeutic predictor and prognostic factor in breast cancer patients. The triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is characterized by loss of hormone receptors and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (Her2), and lacks effective(More)
This study aimed to investigate the association between ADAM metallopeptidase domain 33 (ADAM33) gene polymorphisms and the risk of childhood asthma. The relevant studies about the relationship between ADAM33 gene polymorphisms and childhood asthma were searched from electronic databases and the deadline of retrieval was May 2016. The single nucleotide(More)
