Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. (-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is a potential chemopreventive and therapeutic agent for lung cancer. Induction of apoptosis was examined using Annexin V/PI double staining flow cytometry. Western blot analysis detected the protein expression of cleaved caspase-3, Bax and Bcl-xL.(More)
OBJECTIVE Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute and self-limited systemic vasculitis syndrome of unknown origin that mainly affects small and medium-sized arteries, particularly the coronary arteries, which is followed by aneurysm formation. Increased levels of matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) have been detected in aortic aneurysms in adults, suggesting an(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Bronchoscopy is an important method for diagnosing respiratory disease. Multiple tracheobronchial nodules are rarely reported and their causes remain unclear. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to describe the clinical characteristics of multiple nodule tracheobronchial abnormalities found under bronchoscopy caused by different(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the protective effect of the prenatal use of tetrandrine (TET) against congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) in rats and possible mechanisms. METHODS Pregnant female Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: control, nitrofen and TET treatment. The later two groups were administered with nitrofen by gavage on day 9.5 of(More)
OBJECTIVE To construct a small interfering RNA (siRNA) expression vector targeting hepatoma-derived growth factor (HDGF) and establish a lung adenocarcinoma cell line stably expressing siRNA-HDGF. METHOD RT-PCR was used to examine HDGF expression in lung adenocarcinoma samples and the matched adjacent lung tissues, and also in lung adenocarcinoma SPC-A-1(More)
