PURPOSE MicroRNAs play important roles in cancer development, progression, and metastasis. The aim of this study was to determine whether altered microRNA-155 expression is associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence and prognosis following orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). METHODS Tissue specimens from 100 HCC patients following OLT(More)
Tumor recurrence-related microRNAs (miRNAs) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) following orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) are not clear yet. This study was designed to determine whether altered miRNA expression is associated with HCC recurrence and prognosis following OLT. 18 miRNAs, including 6 up-regulated and 12 down-regulated miRNAs were identified(More)
Many recent studies have shown the utility of microRNAs (miRs) as cancer-related biomarkers. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the correlation between miR-203 expression and prognosis of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cirrhosis after liver transplantation (LT). Sixty-six HCC samples from patients who had undergone LT were(More)
A study was conducted to evaluate effects of alfalfa meal on growth performance and gastrointestinal tract development of growing layer ducks to provide evidence for application of alfalfa meal in the duck industry. Two hundred and fifty-six healthy Shaoxing 7-wk old growing layer ducks were selected and randomly allocated to 1 of 4 dietary treatments based(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expression of microRNA-155 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and its contribution to recurrence and prognosis of HCC after liver transplantation (LT). METHODS The expression levels of microRNA-155 in 100 HCC samples were detected by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Kaplan-Meier and Cox(More)
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) are a group of clinical problems affecting temporomandibular joint (TMJ), myofascial muscles and other related structures. Splint therapy is the most commonly used approach to treatment of TMD, but its effectiveness is remains unclear. We therefore conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of splint therapy(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate conventional acupuncture therapy in the management of clinical outcomes for temporomandibular disorders (TMD) in adults. METHODS The electronic databases PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, and Clinical Trails.gov were searched for reports published until March 31, 2016. (More)
