Traumatic brain injury is a common event associated with neurological dysfunction. Oxidative damage, may contribute to some of these pathologic changes. We used a specific and sensitive marker of lipid peroxidation, the isoprostane 8,12-iso-iPF(2alpha) -VI, to investigate whether local and also systemic lipid peroxidation were induced following lateral(More)
Postmortem and in vitro studies have shown that oxidative stress plays a role in the pathogenesis of many of the clinical features of Down's syndrome. The isoprostane 8,12-iso-iPF2alpha-VI is a specific marker of lipid peroxidation. We found elevated levels of this isoprostane in urine samples of subjects with Down's syndrome compared with those of matched(More)
BACKGROUND The significance of ezrin immunoexpression and prognosis for osteosarcoma is still controversial. The aim was to provide a meta-analysis for ezrin immunoexpression and prognostic features of osteosarcoma patients. METHODS A detailed search was made in MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Web of Knowledge for relevant original articles published in English;(More)
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), such as body gamma knife, was reported to achieve excellent rates of local disease control with limited toxicity in many cases of primary or secondary pulmonary tumor, except osteosarcoma. To confirm the value of SRS in pulmonary metastases from osteosarcoma, we reviewed the experience from our institution (Department of(More)
Controversy exists in the accuracy of Tokuhashi score (TS) system in predicting survival of patients with vertebral metastasis, including vertebral metastases from primary lung cancer. To calculate the accuracy of the TS in predicting survival of lung cancer patients with vertebral metastasis and investigate which subgroup's survival is suitable for TS to(More)
BACKGROUND One important protein family that functions in nucleotide excision repair (NER) factors is the SNF2 family. A newly identified mouse ERCC6-like gene, Ercc6l (excision repair cross-complementing rodent repair deficiency, complementation group 6-like), has been shown to be another developmentally related member of the SNF2 family.
