An advantage in zebrafish is that we can identify spatial and temporal patterns of protein expression using whole-mount immunohistochemistry. To allow primary antibodies to interact with their targets, most tissues must undergo some type of antigen retrieval. Many retrieval techniques have utilized protein-digesting enzymes to access antigens. Here we(More)
Jujuboside B has been reported to have protective effect on many cardiovascular diseases. However, the effects of Jujuboside B on vascular tension and endothelial function are unknown. The present study investigated the effects of Jujuboside B on reducing vascular tension, protecting endothelial function and the potential mechanisms. The tension of isolated(More)
Platelet activation and endothelial damage play essential roles in atherosclerosis. The pathophysiology of this process is mediated by chemokines and exosomes, two critical players in cell communication. Thrombin-activated platelet-derived exosomes have protective effects on atherosclerosis and endothelial inflammation. To confirm these findings, we(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of irreversible electroporation (IRE) on the stomach wall following the direct application of IRE onto the organ surface. IRE ablation was performed in 8 Tibetan mini-pigs, which were randomly assigned into two groups based on their ablated areas: Group A, gastric cardia, fundus of stomach, gastric(More)
RATIONALE Ectopic pancreas, which is a kind of rare congenital disease, forms during embryonic development. It can occur throughout the whole gastrointestinal tract, but has a low tendency to develop in the wall of the small intestine. It is easy for patients with ectopic pancreases to be misdiagnosed because the symptoms are untypical and can vary. (More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of irreversible electroporation (IRE) on the uterine cervix in a rabbit model. IRE ablation was performed in the cervices of 48 New Zealand rabbits, with one ablation lesion in each animal. Gross pathology, transmission electron microscopy, hematoxylin and eosin (H&E), Masson's trichrome (MT) stain, and(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a method of targeted cell ablation which has been suggested as a potential cancer therapy as it leaves structures such as blood vessels and the extracellular matrix intact, thereby allowing the rapid recovery of healthy tissue. Here, we investigated the effects of IRE on the colon in vivo in a porcine(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of irreversible electroporation (IRE) for the management of unresectable pancreatic vasoactive intestinal peptide tumor (VIPoma) in a 34-year-old male patient. The initial symptom was watery diarrhea, which could not be stopped by fasting. Laboratory tests revealed high vasoactive(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Irreversible electroporation (IRE) was confirmed to control several solid tumors effectively in vivo. Our preclinical study aimed to assess the feasibility and safety of IRE in the breast of rabbit. METHODS Thirty New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into 3 groups of 10 rabbits (control group, IRE group A, and B). Two(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of irreversible electroporation (IRE) on the eradication of rabbit VX2 cervical tumors. A VX2 cervical cancer model was first made in 20 New Zealand rabbits. IRE ablation was performed for the cervical cancers of 15 rabbits when the diameter of the tumor was about 1.0-1.5 cm. The control group (n = 5) did(More)
