PURPOSE To investigate the association between various risk factors and precancerous lesion of gastric cancer (PLGC) in patients from eastern China. MATERIALS AND METHODS 501 cases of PLGC and 523 cases of superficial gastritis were included. A comparative study of the relation between different risk factors and PGLC was performed. RESULTS Statistical(More)
A part of the salivary components are shifted from the blood via a trans- and/or paracellular route. The isolated, arterially perfused, salivary glands (submandibular and parotid glands) were used to assess paracellular transport functionally and morphologically. In the present study, the hydrostatic pressure of the perfusion was changed and the fluid(More)
Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) have opposite actions on the gallbladder; PACAP induces contraction, whereas VIP induces relaxation. Here, we have attempted to identify key residues responsible for their interactions with PACAP (PAC1) and VIP (VPAC) receptors in the guinea pig(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the nature of deficiency in spleen-yin syndrome, which could provide scientific theoretical support and practical guidance for clinical Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) syndrome differentiation based on biology, and had a strong clinical significance. METHODS Serum Cu and Zn were detected by atomic absorption spectrophotometer,(More)
Mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene have been implicated in the onset of cystic fibrosis and other clinical respiratory disorders. In the present study, we investigated the role of CFTR variations, poly-T, TG-repeats, and M470V in susceptibility to bronchial asthma and chronic bronchitis in a Chinese population(More)
The aim of this study was to study the relation between histopathological classification of gastric carcinoma and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. 200 patients with confirmed gastric carcinoma between January 2010 and January 2012 from our hospital were included. All these patients went through endoscopy and histological examinations for gastric(More)
OBJECTIVES Mutation in the Pkhd1 gene that encodes a ciliary protein, fibrocystin, causes multiple cysts in the kidneys and liver in the polycystic kidney (PCK) rat, a model for human autosomal recessive PCK disease. To clarify the role of primary cilia in the pancreatic duct, we examined the structure and function of the exocrine pancreas of PCK rats. (More)
