MATERIAL AND METHODS The present meta-analysis comprising of 51 case-control studies, including 7892 cases and 14 280 controls was performed to(More)
In this study, we investigated the effect of pre-treatment with demethylating agent decitabine on susceptibility to chemotherapeutic drugs in HL60/ADR, Kasumi-1 and primary AML cells. Cytotoxic effect was increased by decitabine through activation of p53 and inhibition of c-Myc, Survivin and Bcl-2. We demonstrated in clinic that combination of decitabine(More)
Arterial dysfunction has been documented in patients with beta-thalassaemia major. This study aimed to determine the quantity and proliferative capacity of circulating CD133(+)VEGFR2(+) and CD34(+)VEGFR2(+) cells in patients with beta-thalassaemia major and those after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), and their relationships with arterial(More)
