OBJECTIVE To investigate the distribution of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-G and E on human first trimester placenta and its relationship with unexplained recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA). METHODS Fifteen women with normal first trimester pregnancy and fifteen patients with RSA were included in this study. In situ hybridization and immunohistochemical(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were adenovirally engineered to secrete interleukin-12 (AdIL-12-MSCs) and evaluated for their anticarcinogenesis efficacy against three kinds of unestablished tumor models including B16 melanoma, LLC Lewis lung cancer and HCC hepatoma. Injection of AdIL-12-MSCs into protected mice before tumor inoculation prevented all of 12(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the treatment time, outcome, and anchorage loss among orthodontic patients treated by self-ligating brackets (SLBs) and conventional brackets (CBs). MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective cohort study compared 34 patients (SLB group) treated by SmartClip brackets (3M Unitek, Monrovia, Calif) to 35 patients (CB group) treated by(More)
Cementogenesis is of great importance for normal teeth root development and is involved in the repair process of root resorption caused by orthodontic treatment. As highly differentiated mesenchymal cells, cementoblasts are responsible for this process under the regulation of many endogenous agents. Among these molecules, sclerostin has been much(More)
Root resorption is a common side effect of orthodontic treatment. In the current study, lithium chloride (LiCl), a Wnt signaling activator, was examined to determine its effect on root resorption. In total, 10 Sprague Dawley rats were randomly allocated into the experimental group (EG) and control group (CG). Each group consisted of five subjects. By using(More)
Our previous work has demonstrated that piracetam inhibited the decrease in amino acid content induced by chronic hypoperfusion, ameliorated the dysfunction of learning and memory in a hypoperfusion rat model, down-regulated P53, and BAX protein, facilitated the synaptic plasticity, and may be helpful in the treatment of vascular dementia. To explore the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of Osteoking ( masculine(1)i) in preventing postoperational deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in patients with intertrochanteric fracture (ITF). METHODS With prospective and randomized controlled clinical design adopted, 62 patients with ITF after operation were assigned into 2 groups, the tested group and the control group,(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effects of Osteoking in promoting gene expression of core binding factor alpha 1 (cbfalpha 1) in necrotic femoral head of rabbits. METHODS Rabbit model of femoral head necrosis (FHN) was induced by intravenous injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) 10 microg/kg body weight twice with an interval of 24 h and intramuscular injection(More)
AIM To describe our experience with various interventions for caesarean scar pregnancies (CSPs) based on the myometrial thickness between the gestational mass and the bladder. METHODS All patients were initially administered methotrexate. Then, the appropriate therapies hysteroscopy alone or combined with uterine artery embolization (group A) and direct(More)
