BACKGROUND Protease-activated receptor-1 (PAR-1) is widely distributed in platelets and involved in coagulation cascade activated by thrombin. In this study, we intend to explore the role of PAR-1 in the process of thrombin-inducing transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) to promote airway remodeling in ovalbumin (OVA)-allergic rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
A novel series of triazine derivatives targeting the entrance channel of the HIV-1 non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor binding pocket (NNIBP) were designed and synthesized on the basis of our previous work. The results of a cell-based antiviral screening assay indicated that most compounds showed good-to-moderate activity against wild-type HIV-1(More)
The cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) of children at 3.0 T presents a unique set of technical challenges because of their small cardiac anatomical structures, fast heart rates, and the limited ability to keep motionless and hold breathe, which could cause problems associated with field inhomogeneity and degrade the image quality. The aim of our study was to(More)
Previous experimental studies have demonstrated that hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and its receptor c‑Met serve an important function in lymphangiogenesis, but their biological functions in malignant tumors have remained elusive. The present study aimed to investigate the expression patterns of HGF‑α and c‑Met and their association with vascular(More)
Doxorubicin (DOX), an anthracycline antibiotic, is one of the most active anticancer chemotherapeutic agents. The clinical use of DOX, however, is limited by the dose-dependant P-glycoprotein (P-gp)-mediated resistance. Herein, a 3'-azido analogue of DOX (ADOX) was prepared from daunorubicin (DNR). ADOX exhibited potent antitumor activities in(More)
BACKGROUND Metastatic spread of tumor through lymphatic vasculature is an important adverse prognostic factor in a variety of human cancer and tumor lymphangiogenesis requires the interplay of several growth factors. Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-BB and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-C are two important molecules involving in tumor(More)
