BACKGROUND & AIMS The reason that women have a lower prevalence of duodenal ulcer is not clear. We investigated whether estrogen regulates human duodenal bicarbonate secretion (DBS) and whether this process accounts for sex differences in the prevalence of duodenal ulcer. METHODS We performed an epidemiologic study to correlate duodenal ulcer prevalence(More)
Calcinated antler cancellous bone (CACB) is useful in repair of bone defects, as its composition and architecture is analogous to natural extracellular bone matrix. The use of CACB scaffolds with adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) in repair of rabbit mandibular bone defects was investigated along with the underlying molecular signaling pathways involved.(More)
Inorganic bone xenograft materials have recently found extensive surgical application in the clinic. Previously we have demonstrated that calcinated antler cancellous bone (CACB) has great potential for bone defect repair, due to the similar structure and composition compared with human bone. However, the effect of intrinsic material characteristics,(More)
Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the association between the +781C/T polymorphism in the interleukin-8 (IL-8) gene and the acute neurological recovery and 3-month outcome of atherosclerotic cerebral infarction patients in the Han Chinese population. Methods: We investigated the +781C/T polymorphism of IL-8 in 308 consecutive Han Chinese(More)
