BACKGROUND Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) modified T cells targeting CD19 have shown activity in case series of patients with acute and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and B-cell lymphomas, but feasibility, toxicity, and response rates of consecutively enrolled patients treated with a consistent regimen and assessed on an intention-to-treat basis have not(More)
Learning and memory are fundamental brain functions affected by dietary and environmental factors. Here, we show that increasing brain magnesium using a newly developed magnesium compound (magnesium-L-threonate, MgT) leads to the enhancement of learning abilities, working memory, and short- and long-term memory in rats. The pattern completion ability was(More)
AIM To observe the therapeutic efficacy of Baicalin in rats with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) and explore its therapeutic mechanisms. METHODS The SAP rat models were randomly divided into the model control group, Baicalin treatment group, octreotide treatment group and sham operation group. All groups were randomly subdivided into 3 h, 6 h and 12 h(More)
Although activation of the nuclear progesterone (P(4)) receptor (PGR) is required for uterine function, some of the actions of P(4) are mediated through a PGR-independent mechanism. The receptors that account for the PGR-independent actions have not been identified with certainty. The purpose of this study was to assess the expression, localization and(More)
The aim of this study was to determine and examine the possible reasons for the difference in prostate cancer incidence between Asian men and North American men by literature review. Data regarding cancer incidence and mortality were obtained from the database of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). A literature review was conducted by(More)
AIM To investigate the protective effects and mechanisms of Baicalin and octreotide on renal injury of rats with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). METHODS One hundred and eighty SD rats were randomly assigned to the model group, Baicalin-treated group, octreotide-treated group and sham operation group. The mortality, plasma endotoxin level, contents of(More)
We previously reported a linkage region on chromosome 10q for age-at-onset (AAO) of Alzheimer (AD) and Parkinson (PD) diseases. Glutathione S-transferase, omega-1 (GSTO1) and the adjacent gene GSTO2, located in this linkage region, were then reported to associate with AAO of AD and PD. To examine whether GSTO1 and GSTO2 (hereafter referred to as GSTO1h) are(More)
The role of salicylic acid (SA) in plant responses to salinity is still a matter of controversy. To address the effect of endogenous SA variation in level and signaling on plant responses to salinity, biochemical and physiological analyses were performed on SA-altering Arabidopsis mutants including snc1 with high level of SA, transgenic line nahG with low(More)
Anxiety disorders, such as phobias and posttraumatic stress disorder, are among the most common mental disorders. Cognitive therapy helps in treating these disorders; however, many cases relapse or resist the therapy, which justifies the search for cognitive enhancers that might augment the efficacy of cognitive therapy. Studies suggest that enhancement of(More)
The HS2 enhancer in the beta-globin locus control region regulates transcription of the globin genes 10-50 kb away. How the HS2 enhancer acts over this distance is not clearly understood. Earlier studies show that in erythroid cells the HS2 enhancer initiates synthesis of intergenic RNAs from sites within and downstream of the enhancer, and the(More)
