Amanzio and Benedetti (J Neurosci 1999; 19: 484-494) first addressed the conditions necessary for the activation of opioid and non-opioid placebo responses in human. Here, we investigated whether placebo analgesia is subdivided into opioid and non-opioid components in mice by using the model of hot-plate test. Drug conditioning was performed by the(More)
Lee S-C, Guo J-Y, Lim R, Soo R, Koay E, Salto-Tellez M, Leong A, Goh B-C. Clinical and molecular characteristics of hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer families in Southeast Asia. Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC), predominantly due to germline MLH1/MSH2 mutations, is the commonest form of hereditary colorectal cancer (CRC), but data(More)
Exercise is recognized as an activator to elicit an inflammatory response whilst moxibustion in traditional Chinese medicine has been previously found to modulate immune functioning. However, whether moxibustion can alleviate the inflammatory cytokines response to chronic exhaustive exercise remains unknown. In the present study, rats were randomly assigned(More)
Tumor microenvironment (TME) plays an active role in promoting tumor progression. To further understand the communication between TME and tumor cells, this study aimed at investigating the involvement of CD44, a type I cell surface receptor, in the crosstalk between tumor cells and TME. We have previously shown that chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan(More)
OBJECTIVE MicroRNA-185-5p (miR-185-5p) dysregulation is found in various human cancers. Our purpose is to investigate the association of miR-185-5p expression with the sensitivity of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) to cisplatin. MATERIALS AND METHODS Real-time PCR or Western blot assay was performed to detect the expression of mature miR-185-5p and(More)
