OBJECTIVE To obtain information about dietary pattern change of Chinese Americans in Pennsylvania and its relationship with demographic characteristics and acculturation indicators. DESIGN A cross-sectional self-administered survey. SUBJECTS A convenience sample of 399 Chinese Americans. Statistical analyses performed t Tests, analysis of variance with(More)
Chinese-American women have a high risk of osteoporosis. However, their calcium intake has been reported previously as considerably below the Dietary Reference Intake. Increasing consumption of calcium-rich foods, many of which are also fortified with vitamin D, is a safe way to increase their calcium and vitamin D intake. This study's objective was to(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is among the most lethal human malignancies and is regulated by Sonic Hedgehog (Shh) signaling. Recently, MAP3K10 has been shown to regulate Shh signaling, suggesting a role for MAP3K10 in the tumorigenesis of PDAC. We determined the expression status of MAP3K10 in PDAC tissues and cell lines, and analyzed the(More)
Hepatitis B virus X protein (HBx) plays critical roles in the pathogenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Here, we were interested in knowing whether the oncogene Lin28A and its homolog Lin28B are involved in the hepatocarcinogenesis mediated by HBx. We showed that the expression levels of Lin28A and Lin28B were increased in clinical HCC tissues,(More)
NuCOTN 33B, a Bt transgenic variety of upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) expressing the insecticidal protein Cry1Ac from Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner sp. kurstaki, was evaluated for resistance to Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) during 1998-2000 in northern China. The results indicated that there was no significant difference in egg densities between(More)
Pancreatic cancer is a disease with an extremely poor prognosis. The acquisition of invasion properties in pancreatic cancer is accompanied by the process of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 6 (CEACAM6) is emerging as an important determinant of the malignant phenotype in a range of cancers,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the family food system in first-generation Chinese American families. DESIGN Qualitative interviews using reciprocal determinism constructs to understand influences on food choices. SETTING Weekend Chinese schools in Pennsylvania. PARTICIPANTS Twenty couples with at least 1 child aged 5 or older enrolled in a Chinese school in(More)
OBJECT Unruptured posterior communicating artery (PCoA) aneurysms with oculomotor nerve palsy (ONP) have a very high risk of rupture. This study investigated the hemodynamic and morphological characteristics of intracranial aneurysms with high rupture risk by analyzing PCoA aneurysms with ONP. METHODS Fourteen unruptured PCoA aneurysms with ONP, 33 ruptured(More)
PURPOSE Flow diverters (FD) are increasingly being considered for treating large or giant wide-neck aneurysms. Clinical outcome is highly variable and depends on the type of aneurysm, the flow diverting device and treatment strategies. The objective of this study was to analyze the effect of different flow diverting strategies together with parent artery(More)
A new high-expression endothelial growth factor receptor (EGFR) cell membrane chromatography (CMC) method was applied to recognize the ligands acting on EGFR specifically, and investigate the affinity of gefitinib/HMQ1611 to EGFR. In the self and direct competitive assay, gefitinib/HMQ1611 was used as a competitor in the mobile phase to evaluate the effect(More)
