Tumor heterogeneity of high-grade glioma (HGG) is recognized by four clinically relevant subtypes based on core gene signatures. However, molecular signaling in glioma stem cells (GSCs) in individual HGG subtypes is poorly characterized. Here we identified and characterized two mutually exclusive GSC subtypes with distinct dysregulated signaling pathways.(More)
To develop a novel preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) test using next generation sequencing(NGS) as a alternative to current array comparative genomic hybridization (array CGH) method for detection of small segmental translocations in two patients with repeated implantation failure (RIF) and recurrent miscarriage (RM). Inconsistent results were(More)
The multidrug-resistant rate of Klebsiella pneumoniae has risen rapidly worldwide. To better understand the multidrug resistance situation and molecular characterization of Klebsiella pneumoniae, a total of 153 Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates were collected, and drug susceptibility test was performed to detect its susceptibility patterns to 13 kinds of(More)
Endemic malaria in Thailand continues to only exist along international borders. This pattern is frequently attributed to importation of malaria from surrounding nations. A microgeographical approach was used to investigate malaria cases in a study village along the Thailand–Myanmar border. Three mass blood surveys were conducted during the study period(More)
Conventional prenatal screening tests, such as maternal serum tests and ultrasound scan, have limited resolution and accuracy. We developed an advanced noninvasive prenatal diagnosis method based on massively parallel sequencing. The Noninvasive Fetal Trisomy (NIFTY) test, combines an optimized Student’s t-test with a locally weighted polynomial regression(More)
Resveratrol is a phytoalexin synthesized by a wide variety of plants, which has been proven to be effective in suppressing oxidative stress and inflammation. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of Resveratrol's prodrug: 3,5,4'-tri-O-acetylresveratrol, on seawater drowning-induced acute lung injury (SWD-ALI). Histological changes were(More)
COMM domain-containing proteins are a group of recently discovered proteins; their biochemical characterization remains much limited. Here we demonstrate that a cDNA encoding Branchiostoma belcheri COMMD6, designated BbCOMMD6, codes for a protein of 203 amino acids, with a COMM domain at its C-terminal region and an extended N-terminal portion. BbCOMMD6 is(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were treated with bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) dose-dependently and time-dependently. Together they caused a strong synergistic effect on the osteogenic differentiation of MSCs, with lower concentrations of each factor being enough to(More)
INTRODUCTION Neutrophil CD64 has been proposed as an early marker of sepsis. This study aims to evaluate the diagnostic utility of neutrophil CD64 for identification of early-onset sepsis in preterm neonates. METHODS The prospective study was conducted in a neonatal intensive care unit between November 2010 and June 2011. Preterm neonates in whom(More)
