The purpose of the present study was to detect the expression levels of circulating miR-148a in the peripheral blood of osteosarcoma patients and to further investigate the clinicopathological, diagnostic, and prognostic value of miR-148a. Eighty-nine patients with initially diagnosed osteosarcoma who successfully underwent surgical resection were enrolled(More)
BACKGROUND Treatment of displaced femoral neck fractures includes internal fixation and arthroplasty. However, whether arthroplasty or internal fixation is the primary treatment for displaced femoral neck fractures in elderly patients remains a subject for debate. The literature contains conflicting evidence regarding rates of mortality, revision surgery,(More)
Serum amyloid A (SAA) is regarded as an important acute phase protein involved in tumor progression and metastasis. However, at present there is no evidence of its involvement in osteosarcoma. The present study aimed to investigate the effect of SAA on the invasion of osteosarcoma cells. The effects of SAA on the migration and invasion of osteosarcoma cells(More)
OBJECTIVES Celastrol has attracted wide interests for its anticancer and anti-inflammation properties, and studies have demonstrated that celastrol negatively modulates the stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1) and receptor C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4) signalling. We aim in this study to investigate the effects of celastrol in osteoarthritis (OA)(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of pedicle screw fixation for treatment of thoracolumbar fracture via Wiltse paraspinal approach. METHODS From June 2009 to June 2012, we enrolled into our study 53 cases of thoracolumbar fractures (single segment compressive or burst fractures) without neurologic injury, among whom 28 were treated by(More)
A mix of flavonoids comprising baicalin (BA) and catechin showed effective impacts on controlling the progress of knee osteoarthritis (OA). However, little is known about the underlying mechanisms. The influences of BA on the transcriptional levels of a series of proinflammatory genes were measured using real-time reverse transcription and polymerase chain(More)
The present study aimed to investigate the effects of microRNA (miRNA/miR)-497 expression levels on the expression levels of synuclein γ (SNCG) in serum samples, as well as osteosarcoma and lung-metastatic tissue samples, from patients with osteosarcoma. Between December 2010 and August 2013, fasting peripheral blood was collected from 36 patients with(More)
