Four experiments investigated acoustic-phonetic similarity in the mapping process between the speech signal and lexical representations (vertical similarity). Auditory stimuli were used where ambiguous initial phonemes rendered a phoneme sequence lexically ambiguous (perceptual-lexical ambiguities). A cross-modal priming paradigm (Experiments 1, 2, and 3)(More)
BACKGROUND Women with breast cancer treated with aromatase inhibitors (AIs) may experience musculoskeletal symptoms that lead to discontinuation of effective therapy. The purpose of the current study is to evaluate the clinical and genetic predictors for AIs-related musculoskeletal adverse events(MS-AEs). METHODOLOGY AND PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We recruited(More)
Two experiments investigated the influence of word frequency in a phoneme identification task. Speech voicing continua were constructed so that one endpoint was a high-frequency word and the other endpoint was a low-frequency word (e.g., best-pest). Experiment 1 demonstrated that ambiguous tokens were labeled such that a high-frequency word was formed(More)
The clinical use of cisplatin, a potent antineoplastic agent, is limited by its severe adverse effects. The present study was designed to evaluate the effects of resveratrol on cisplatin-induced cardiac injury. Resveratrol is a potent free radical scavenger. In the present study, we tested whether resveratrol would prevent cisplatin-induced cardiotoxicity(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the expression profile of miR-1258 and heparanase (HPSE) in breast cancer and to assess their clinicopathological significance. DESIGN AND METHODS The expression levels of miR-1258 and HPSE were analyzed in normal, benign and malignant breast tissues. Their serum levels were evaluated in healthy women and in patients with benign(More)
Capecitabine is a novel fluoropyrimidine carbamate, which has a broader spectrum of antitumor activity than other fluoropyrimidines, such as 5-FU, DFUR, or UFT; it has proved effective over a wide dose range. Recent research has suggested that frequent administration of lower doses of certain chemotherapeutic drugs might enhance their antiangiogenic effect.(More)
OBJECTIVES Natural medicines derived from plants are drawing more and more interest in the prevention and treatment of diseases because of their unique characteristics, which include having fewer adverse effects and being more suitable for long-term use compared with synthesized chemicals. To explore the potentially health-promoting role of genistein, we(More)
The research aims to examine the prognostic value of the lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR), neutrophil-to- lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The relation of these hematologic indicators to poor antitumor immunity and prognosis must be investigated. Clinicopathologic data and survival(More)
The prognostic significance of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in patients with breast cancer is controversial. We performed a meta-analysis of published literature to assess whether the detection of CTCs in patients diagnosed with primary breast cancer can be used as a prognostic factor. We searched Medline, Science Citation Index, and Embase databases as(More)
