BACKGROUND Although laparoscopic surgery has been available for a long time and laparoscopic cholecystectomy has been performed universally, it is still not clear whether open appendectomy (OA) or laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) is the most appropriate surgical approach to acute appendicitis. The purpose of this work is to compare the therapeutic effects and(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM To evaluate the evidence comparing radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and surgical resection (RES) on the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) using meta-analytical techniques. METHODS Literature search was undertaken until March 2011 to identify comparative studies evaluating survival rates, recurrence rates, and complications.(More)
It has been reported that various types of axonal injury of hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal tract can result in degeneration of the magnocellular neurons (MCNs) in hypothalamus and development of central diabetes insipidus (CDI). However, the mechanism of the degeneration and death of MCNs after hypophysectomy in vivo is still unclear. This present study was(More)
INTRODUCTION At present whether to use T-tube or not during orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) in biliary tract reconstruction still remains controversial. Most transplant centers choose not to use T-tube because the T-tube can increase the incidence of cholangitis, but some centers still use T-tube because the T-tube can decrease the incidence of(More)
Purpose. Our study analyses clinical trials and evaluates the efficacy of adding cetuximab in systematic chemotherapy for unresectable colorectal cancer liver-confined metastases patients. Materials and Methods. Search EMBASE, PubMed, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials for RCTs comparing chemotherapy plus cetuximab with chemotherapy(More)
Current therapeutic antibodies, at least some, possess the capacity to induce immune tolerance in experimental models with allo-grafts or autoimmune diseases. Clinical application of humanized or chimeric antibodies to treat graft rejection or autoimmune diseases is presently underway. It is now becoming clear that immune tolerance can be acquired in some(More)
Dendritic cells (DC) are highly specialized antigen-presenting cells with a unique ability to activate resting T lymphocytes and initiate primary immune responses. Angiotensin II (AII) is involved in key events of the inflammatory response. Because our previous work implicated an effect of AII on differentiation and function of murine and human DC, we(More)
UNLABELLED Thymus cell antigen-1 (Thy-1)-expressing cells proliferate in the liver during oval cell (OC)-mediated liver regeneration. We characterized these cells in normal liver, in carbon tetrachloride-injured liver, and in several models of OC activation. The gene expression analyses were performed using reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the role of alveolar macrophage activation in rats with acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP) associated with lung injury. METHODS 30 adult Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into five groups (n = 6): normal control group, one-hour group, three-hour group, six-hour group and twelve-hour group after ANP induction. ANP was induced(More)
