To determine prevalence of Cyclospora cayetanensis infection in Henan, China, we conducted a study of 11,554 hospital patients. Prevalence was 0.70% (95% confidence interval 0.70% ± 0.15%), with all age groups infected. Most cases were found in the summer. Minor sequence polymorphisms were observed in the 18S rRNA gene of 35 isolates characterized.
Cryptosporidium and Giardia infections are common causes of diarrhea worldwide. To better understand the transmission of human cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis in Henan, China, 10 Cryptosporidium-positive specimens and 18 Giardia-positive specimens were characterized at the species/genotype and subtype levels. Cryptosporidium specimens were analyzed by DNA(More)
To investigate the prevalence of Cyclospora cayetanensis in a longitudinal study and to conduct a population genetic analysis, fecal specimens from 6579 patients were collected during the cyclosporiasis - prevalent seasons in two urban areas of central China in 2011-2015. The overall incidence of C. cayetanensis infection was 1·2% (76/6579): 1·6% (50/3173)(More)
BACKGROUND Long non-coding RNA Metastasis associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1(lncRNA MALAT1) play important roles in tumor progression. In the present study, we determined the regulatory function of MALAT1 in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). METHODS A total of 43 cases of TNBC tissues and paired adjacent non-tumor tissues were collected for(More)
Folate receptor alpha (FRα) is aberrantly expressed in ovarian cancers but largely absent in normal tissues, and therefore represents an attractive target for immunotherapy. In recent years, modification of T cells with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) targeting FRα has been reported to improve antitumor immunity of T cells. However, there are limited data(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the feasibility and safety of scarless laparoscopic radical resection of rectal cancer. METHODS Clinical data of 26 patients who underwent scarless laparoscopic radical resection of rectal cancer from January 2011 to June 2013 were retrospectively analyzed. Lymph node dissection and transection of proximal and distal colon were(More)
