Diagnosis of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-positive hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), particularly HCC independent of cirrhosis etiology, presents a great challenge because of a lack of biomarkers. Here we test the hypothesis that expression profiles of microRNAs (miRNAs) in serum can serve as biomarkers for diagnosis of HBV infection and HBV-positive HCC. We(More)
The N-oxygenation of amines by the human flavin-containing monooxygenase (form 3) (FMO3) represents an important means for the conversion of lipophilic nucleophilic heteroatom-containing compounds into more polar and readily excreted products. Certain mutations of the human FMO3 gene have been linked to abnormal drug or chemical metabolism. For example,(More)
The genetic polymorphisms in E-cadherin gene (CDH1) may affect invasive/metastatic development of gastric cancer by altering gene transcriptional activity of epithelial cell. Our study aims to explore the associations among CDH1 gene polymorphisms, and predisposition of gastric cancer. We genotyped four potentially functional polymorphisms (rs13689,(More)
BACKGROUND Rapamycin, isolated from Streptomyces hygroscopicus, is recently reported to have immunosuppressant and anti-tumor effects on a large variety of cancers. To date, no detailed data are available about the effects of rapamycin on hepatocellular carcinoma cells. OBJECTIVE In this study, the anti-proliferation effects of rapamycin on hepatocellular(More)
in recent years, greenhouse technology in agriculture is to automation, information technology direction with the IOT (internet of things) technology rapid development and wide application. In the paper, control networks and information networks integration of IOT technology has been studied based on the actual situation of agricultural production. Remote(More)
The effect of resveratrol on macrophage EMMPRIN expression and its potential mechanism was investigated. Both EMMPRIN expression and MMP-9 activity, respectively assayed by Western blot and zymography, were greatly up-regulated during PMA-induced macrophage differentiation from THP-1 monocytes. Both resveratrol and a PPARgamma agonist, pioglitazone,(More)
BACKGROUND Randomized, controlled trials have demonstrated the superiority of sirolimus-eluting stent (SES) implantation during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), as opposed to bare-metal stents, in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). This study aimed to test the hypothesis that clinical benefits of SES treatment were(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remains one of the most aggressive and lethal malignancies. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a novel class of non-protein-coding transcripts that have been implicated in cancer biogenesis and prognosis. By repurposing microarray probes, we herein analysed the lncRNA expression profiles in two public PDAC microarray(More)
The ability to manage customer relationships successfully provides tourism organizations with an opportunity to increase their value proposition and obtain competitive advantage. However, no study has attempted to investigate the role of new service bonds (i.e., the newness and meaningfulness of new services provided by organizations) as a relationship(More)
BACKGROUND The main therapeutic treatments for hepatic artery complications after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) include thrombolysis, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, stent placement, and liver retransplantation. The prognosis of hepatic artery complications after OLT is not only related to the type, extent, and timing but also closely(More)
