Clinicians' patient care information needs are frequent and largely unmet. Online knowledge resources are available that can help clinicians meet these information needs. Yet, significant barriers limit the use of these resources within the clinical workflow. Infobuttons are clinical decision support tools that use the clinical context (e.g., institution,(More)
BACKGROUND Epithelial-to mesenchymal transition (EMT) involves in metastasis, causing loss of epithelial polarity. Metastasis is the major cause of carcinoma-induced death, but mechanisms are poorly understood. Here we identify differentially expressed in adenocarcinoma of the lung-1 (DAL-1), a protein belongs to the membrane-associated cytoskeleton protein(More)
BACKGROUND Our pilot study using miRNA PCR array found that miRNA-29b (miR-29b) is differentially expressed in primary cultured CD133-positive A549 cells compared with CD133-negative A549 cells. METHODS Ten human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines and samples from thirty patients with NSCLC were analyzed for the expression of miR-29b by(More)
The present study was designed to investigate 2 features of maxillary growth following Millard rotation-advancement and Tennison triangular flap cleft lip repairs in rabbits with surgically created defects simulating unilateral cleft lip and cleft alveolus. Sixty purebred New Zealand rabbits were used in this experiment. The animals were divided into 4(More)
The inflammatory microenvironment plays an important role in the process of tumor development. Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), a key pro-inflammatory cytokine, has a significant role in this process. Natural medicinal products such as Withaferin A (WA) and Celastrol (Cel) have shown anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties that can be attributed to(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the correlation of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1B (p27) expression with clinicopathologic features in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), including patient prognosis. METHODS Real-time PCR and immunohistochemistry were used to examine the mRNA and protein expressions of p27 in NPC and nasopharyngeal tissues. The relationship of(More)
Animated trees are important in the creation of virtual worlds, games, and animation, and can be used as visual cues for weather and mood in visual storytelling. We address the problem of animating natural trees in the wind, making use of an optical motion capture system. By recording tree motion using a motion capture system, we avoid building complicated(More)
Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms that regulate the differentiation of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells into osteogenic cells may lead to new methods for bone tissue engineering. We examined the role of miR-26a-5p in the regulation of osteogenic differentiation of mouse adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (mADSCs) by using mimics and(More)
Infobuttons provide context-aware educational materials to both providers and patients and are becoming an important element in modern electronic health records (EHR) and patient health records (PHR). However, the content from different electronic resources (e-resource) as responses from infobutton manager has not been fully analyzed and evaluated. In this(More)
