Family history and the risk of gastric cancer
It is hoped that molecular studies, including genomewide association studies (GWAS) will illuminate the genetic factors underlying this important association between gastric cancer and migration. Expand
Assessment of bile salt effects on s-layer production, slp gene expression and some physicochemical properties of Lactobacillus acidophilus ATCC 4356.
It appears that the bacteria respond abruptly to 0.1% bile, and different of bile salt concentrations influence on morphology and some surface properties of L. acidophilus ATCC 4356. Expand
Differential gene expression pattern of neurotrophins and their receptors during neuronal differentiation of rat bone marrow stromal cells
Results indicate that NGF and BDNF but not NT-3 are expressed in both un-differentiated as well as neurally differentiated BMSCs, while TrkC is not expressed in these cells either before or after differentiation. Expand
Effect of exogenous arginine on alleviation of oxidative damage in tomato plant underwater stress
Compounds which are able to reduce the damaging effects of various stresses such as drought should be of great importance. In this research we have used arginine pretreatment and the effect of thisExpand
Metformin inhibits gastric cancer cells metastatic traits through suppression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition in a glucose-independent manner
Investigation of metformin effects on inhibition of EMT-related genes as well as migration and invasion of AGS gastric cancer cell line indicated that met formin strongly inhibited EMT of gastriccancer cells in conditions mimicking normo and hyperglycemic blood sugar. Expand
A modified efficient method for dental pulp stem cell isolation
In this in-vitro study, a new method with high efficacy to obtain dental pulp stem cells in a short time is proposed. Expand
NGF and BDNF expression drop off in neurally differentiated bone marrow stromal stem cells
This study investigates the expression of NGF, BDNF and their processing enzymes Prohormone convertases (PC) Furin, PC5 and PC6 by Real-time RT-PCR during neural differentiation of rat BMSC and showed that all inspected processing enzymes are expressed in the cells. Expand
Inhibition of 6-hydroxydopamine-induced PC12 cell apoptosis by olive (Olea europaea L.) leaf extract is performed by its main component oleuropein.
The results suggest that OLE and oleuropein have anti-oxidant protective effects against 6-OHDA-induced PC12 cell damage and suggest their therapeutic potential in the treatment of PD. Expand
Dendrosomes: a novel family of vehicles for transfection and therapy
It is found that as a high a ratio of plasmid/ dendrosome as 150 (or even higher in second and third injections) can be easily achieved, which elicits a quick and intense immune (antibody) response compared with common methods (eg 20% sucrose) or recombinant antigen vaccines. Expand
Challenges to diagnosing colorectal cancer during pregnancy.
It is strongly recommended that this patient, who is in her second trimester, undergo at least a flexible sigmoidoscopy, which is presumed safe during pregnancy, with or without a liver ultrasound and carcinoembryonic antigen detection based on pretest probability according to her other risk factors.
