INTRODUCTION Flibanserin, is a postsynaptic agonist of serotonin receptor 1A and an antagonist of serotonin receptor 2A, has been shown to increase sexual desire and reduce distress in women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). AIM We carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the efficacy and safety of the drug in women with(More)
OBJECTIVE The automatic generation of planning targets and auxiliary contours have achieved in Eclipse TPS 11.0. METHODS The scripting language autohotkey was used to develop a software for automatically generated contours in Eclipse TPS. This software is named Contour Auto Margin (CAM), which is composed of operational functions of contours, script(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a rapid and simple immunoassay to detect antibodies in the sera of patients infect Schistosoma japonicum (S. japonicum). METHODS Soluble egg antigen (SEA) of S. japonicum conjugated with colloidal carbon in advance was used to react with the antibodies in the sera of patients with schistosomiasis. Then the carbon-antigen-antibody(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the role of activated status of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptorγ/nuclear factor-ΚB (PPAR-γ/NF-ΚB ) in coagulation disorders induced by sepsis. METHODS Forty male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into four groups, n=10 in each group: control group, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenged group, rosiglitazone(More)
Hilar clamping is typically used in partial nephrectomy to control hemorrhage, which may damage the renal tissue under warm ischemia conditions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate waterjet technology in partial nephrectomy without renal hilar vascular control in a porcine model. Bilateral partial nephrectomy using waterjet was performed in 8 pigs (16(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effects of rosiglitazone, a synthetic ligand of proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ) on vascular endothelial injuries in septic rats. METHODS A total of 40 male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 4 groups of vehicle control, lipopolysaccharide (LPS), pretreatment of rosiglitazone (ROSI) and pretreatment of PPAR-γ(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The human prostate cancer antigen 3 (PCA3) is a long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) commonly used as a diagnostic marker for prostate cancer (PCa). Herein we investigated the cellular function of PCA3 in PCa and its potential mechanism. MATERIALS AND METHODS PCA3 was overexpressed in a PC3 cell line (PC3PCA+) and cell proliferation, migration,(More)
