BACKGROUND Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play an important role in vascular repair and a decrease in the number of EPCs is observed in type 2 diabetes. However, there is no report on the change of EPCs after glycemic control. This study therefore aimed to investigate the EPC number and function in patients with good and poor glycemic control. (More)
Perlecan, the predominant basement membrane proteoglycan, has previously been shown to contain glycosaminoglycans attached at serine residues, numbers 65, 71, and 76, in domain I. However, the C-terminal domains IV and V of this molecule may also be substituted with glycosaminoglycan chains, but the exact substitution sites were not identified. The amino(More)
Perlecan, a proteoglycan of basement membrane and extracellular matrices, has important roles in both normal biological and pathological processes. As a result of its ability to store and protect growth factors, perlecan may have crucial roles in tumour-cell growth and invasion. Since the biological functions of different types of glycosaminoglycan vary(More)
BACKGROUND Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers worldwide. A promising, novel strategy for cancer treatment is chemoprevention. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have chemopreventive effects on several cancers including those of cervix. There are few clinical trials of the effects of NSAIDs on precancerous cervical lesions but data(More)
