Increasing evidence has linked membrane cholesterol to amyloid precursor protein (APP) processing. β-Sitosterol (BS) is one of the most common forms of plant sterols, with the structure very similar to that of cholesterol. Using HT22 mouse hippocampal cells, this study investigated whether the substitution of membrane cholesterol with BS influences APP(More)
Integrin αvβ3 is overexpressed in both neovasculature and glioma cells. We aimed to evaluate (68)gallium-BNOTA-PRGD2 ((68)Ga-PRGD2) as a new reagent for noninvasive integrin αvβ3 imaging in glioma patients. With informed consent, 12 patients with suspicious brain glioma, as diagnosed by enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning, were enrolled to(More)
Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is the most common and aggressive type of biliary tract cancer. The study of potential treatments for GBC has recently focused on microRNAs, a class of small non-coding RNAs, which post-transcriptionally regulate gene expression during various crucial cell processes. The present study aimed to investigate the role of microRNA-146b(More)
Deposition of amyloid β peptide (Aβ), a proteolytic product of amyloid precursor protein (APP), in senile plaques and in the walls of cerebral blood vessels is a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Platelets contain high levels of APP and Aβ and may contribute to amyloid deposits seen in AD. However, the biochemical mechanism(s) involved in the regulation(More)
Mitochondrial dysfunction is a hallmark of amyloid β peptide (Aβ)-induced neuronal toxicity in Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the underlying mechanism (s) of Aβ-induced mitochondrial dysfunction is still not fully understood. There is evidence that nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) is involved in Aβ-induced neurotoxicity and is present in mitochondria. Using(More)
Cerebral blood flow velocity(CBFV) is an important parameter for study of cerebral hemodynamics. However, a simple and highly similar mathematical model has not yet been established for analyzing CBFV. To alleviate this issue, through TCD examination in 100 geriatric patients with suspected cerebrovascular disease (46 males and 54 females), we established a(More)
BACKGROUND This randomized, open-label, multicenter, phase II clinical trial was conducted to assess the anti-tumor efficacy and safety of replication-deficient adenovirus mutant thymidine kinase (ADV-TK) in combination with ganciclovir administration in patients with recurrent high-grade glioma (HGG). PATIENTS AND METHODS 53 patients with recurrent HGG(More)
It has been demonstrated that hypothalamus has a programmatic role in aging development, and this role of hypothalamus is mediated by nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB)-directed gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) decline. β-Sitosterol (BS), one of the most common phytosterols in the diet, is able to inhibit pro-inflammatory NF-κB signaling. It has been(More)
AIMS In order to explore the etiology of gastric cancer on global gene expression level, we developed advanced bioinformatic analysis to investigate the variations of global gene expression and the interactions among them. MAIN METHODS We downloaded the dataset GSE63288 from Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database which included 22 human gastric cancer and(More)
OBJECTIVE Minimally invasive cholecystolithotomy is recently popularized treatment that may offer advantages over laparoscopic cholecystectomy, especially in China. However, there are few reports concerning the use of this technique in the pediatric population. This report describes our initial experience with minimally invasive cholecystolithotomy using(More)
