This study investigated an acute outbreak of contagious ecthyma dermatitis that occurred in November 2008 in a herd of 180 small-tailed Han sheep in the Jilin province of China. The pathological findings of this case revealed severe vascular proliferation, viral cytopathic changes in keratinocytes by vacuolar degeneration, ballooning degeneration, and(More)
BACKGROUND Orf is a zoonotic and epitheliotrophic contagious disease that mainly affects sheep, goats, wild ruminants, and humans with a worldwide distribution. To date, there is little information on the characterization of ORFV strains that are endemic in Mainland China. In addition, the relationship between the severity of disease and the molecular(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The diagnosis of patients with fever of unknown origin (FUO) remains a challenging medical problem for internal medicine. A reliable estimate of the diagnostic performance of FDG-PET and FDG-PET/CT in the assessment of FUO unidentified by conventional workup has never been systematically assessed, and present systematic review was(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-PET (FDG-PET) and FDG-PET/computed tomography (CT) in the detection of recurrent or metastatic differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) that was not identified by radioiodine whole-body scintigraphy (WBS). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 25 studies (comprising 789(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of class I phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitor LY294002 on the invasiveness and related mechanisms of implanted tumors of SGC7901 human gastric carcinoma cells in nude mice. METHODS Nude mice were randomly divided into model control groups and LY294002 treatment groups. On days 5, 10 and 15 after treatment, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the changes of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and angiogenesis, and the effects of bFGF, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibiter(ACEI) benazepril on the angiogenesis in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) model of rabbits, and to provide a probable evidence for the treatment of AMI.

INTRODUCTION In the previous study, we found that the inhibition of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) by LY294002 induced SGC7901 cell death in vitro. We did not know whether SN50, which is a specific inhibitor of nuclear factor κB (NF-κB), could increase the cell death induction of gastric cancer of LY294002 in vitro, and we also wanted to know the(More)
AIM Functional nuclear medicine imaging techniques have become particularly important in the diagnosis of osteomyelitis. The aim of our study was to perform a meta-analysis to obtain a reliable estimate of the diagnostic performance of fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), three-phase bone scintigraphy, leukocyte scintigraphy, and(More)
