BACKGROUND As 2 important SNPs located in the promoter region of VEGF gene, the roles of rs833061 (-460C>T) and rs699947 (-2578C>A) in lung cancer susceptibility and survival remain inconclusive and controversial. MATERIAL/METHODS For better understanding of these 2 SNPs in lung cancer risk and survival, a meta-analysis was performed to pool findings of(More)
Malignant glomus tumor, or glomangiosarcoma, is a very rare mesenchymal neoplasm that, when seen, occurs in visceral organs. Despite having histologic features of malignancy, these tumors usually do not metastasize. However, when metastasis occurs, this disease is often fatal. Our report presents the case of a 59-year-old female patient with a highly(More)
The pathogenesis of visual dysfunction in stroke remains unclear. The objective of this study was to explore retinal damage in stroke spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and evaluate the role of curcumin in the retinal injury after stroke. Mature male SHR were used as the animal model for hypertension and age-matched male Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rats as the(More)
