The purpose of this study was to examine whether functional polymorphisms in the cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme genes affect the risk of developing larynx and hypopharynx squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). We investigated CYP1A1, CYP1B1, CYP2E1, and CYP3A4 polymorphisms in 278 patients with laryngeal and hypopharyngeal SCC and 278 control subjects by polymerase(More)
Functionalized fullerenes with specific physicochemical properties have been developed for cancer diagnosis and therapy. Notably, metallofullerene is a new class of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast-enhancing agent, and may have promising applications for clinical diagnosis. Polyhydroxylated and carboxyl fullerenes have been applied to photoacoustic(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe an individual with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis that extended into the lung parenchyma and underwent malignant transformation and to discuss the characteristic imaging findings associated with this condition. METHODS The clinical presentation of an individual with this unusual malignant transformation was reviewed. A(More)
Surface molecular imprinting in layer-by-layer (SMI-LbL) film is known as a facile and effective strategy to build imprinting sites that are more accessible to template molecules compared with molecular imprinting in polymers. Herein, we accomplished the formation of SMI-LbL film on electrospun nanofibers for the first time. The SMI-LbL nanofibers were(More)
A series of upconversion luminescent erbium-doped SrTiO(3) (ABO(3)-type) photocatalysts with different initial molar ratios of Sr/Ti have been prepared by a facile polymerized complex method. Er(3+) ions, which were gradually transferred from the A to the B site with increasing Sr/Ti, enabled the absorption of visible light and the generation of high-energy(More)
To assess the association between sequence variants of human papillomavirus (HPV) 11 and recurrent respiratory papillomatosis and the taxonomy and evolutionary history of HPV 11. Complete HPV 11 nucleotide sequences were sequenced by Illumina HiSeq2000 Analyzers and compared with the HPV 11 prototype isolate (GenBank accession number: M14119) using Blast(More)
BACKGROUND Anterior glottic web is one type of laryngeal stenosis. Previous surgical methods had some drawbacks, such as large surgical trauma, long postoperative recovery time, and multiple-stage surgery. This study aimed to explore better treatment to repair anterior glottis web. METHODS We performed vocal cord mucosal flap procedure on 32 patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effect of micro-suture technology in laryngeal surgery. METHOD Sixty-one patients with benign laryngeal disease underwent microsurgery resection under general anesthesia, and the wound surface of the mucosa was sutured intermittently. RESULT The postoperative healing time was shortened, the cicatrix on the vocal cord mucosa was(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the efficacy of treatment with microsurgery in combination with local injection of type A botulinum toxin for vocal process granuloma. METHOD 28 patients with vocal process granuloma received endotracheal intubation under general anesthesia. The lesion was removed with micro-scissor and CO2 laster under a self-retaining laryngoscope and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the vocal quality of patients with Reinke's edema before and after the endolaryngeal phonosurgery combined with micro-suture techniques. METHOD Twenty male patients with bilateral Reinke's edema were submitted to surgery. All patients received the endolaryngeal phonosurgery combined with micro-suture techniques on vocal fold and(More)
