AIM To study the effect of troglitazone on primary culture human pterygium fibroblasts (HPF). METHODS Cell viability loss and apoptosis were quantified by cell counting kit-8, AnnexinV-FITC/PI double staining, caspases activity test and western blotting. Flow cytometry was used to detect mitochondrial membrane potential. RESULTS Peroxisome(More)
Prostate cancer is a common multiple malignant tumor occurring in males. Prostate cancer mortality is the 2nd most common of all tumor types in Western countries and the mortality of morbidity is 13% in the USA. The present study aimed to investigate the anticancer effect of docetaxel on inducing the apoptosis of prostate cancer via the cofilin‑1 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expression of cancerous inhibitor of PP2A (CIP2A) and evaluate its role in bladder cancer. METHODS RT-PCR was used to detect the expression of CIP2A mRNA from 38 cases of patients with bladder cancer and 12 cases of normal bladder tissue. The CIP2A protein expression levels in 99 cases of patients with bladder cancer and 12 cases(More)
OBJECTIVES Docetaxel was the first drug with proven survival benefit in men with castration-resistant prostate cancer. Acquired resistance to docetaxel precedes fatality in castration-resistant prostate cancer. The aims of this study were to evaluate docetaxel-sensitive and docetaxel-resistant proteomes in PC-3 cells, and to investigate the molecular(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the association between serum 25(OH)D and dry eye syndrome (DES) incidence. This study was also designed to determine whether serum 25(OH)D levels were associated with ocular parameter of DES patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS This is a case-control study with 70 DES cases and 70 healthy controls. Clinical data included body mass index(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expressions of cancerous inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (CIP2A) and osteopontin (OPN) and evaluate their roles in bladder cancer. METHODS RNA was isolated from 38 cases of patients with bladder cancer and 12 cases of normal bladder tissue by TRIzol method from May 2010 to December 2012. And reverse transcription (RT)-PCR was(More)
