Ets proteins constitute a family of conserved sequence-specific DNA-binding proteins and function as transcription factors. ETS1 plays important roles in differentiation, lymphoid cell development, invasiveness and angiogenesis. Such diverse roles of ETS1 are likely to be dependent on its associated proteins. A yeast two-hybrid screen was conducted and here(More)
Posterior short-segmental fixation is reliable for the management of thoracolumbar fractures; however, it is associated with recurrence of kyphosis and failure of fixation. This study compared the short-term results of short-segmental fixation combined with intermediate screws with those of conventional intersegmental fixation in the treatment of(More)
The Policy Research Working Paper Series disseminates the findings of work in progress to encourage the exchange of ideas about development issues. An objective of the series is to get the findings out quickly, even if the presentations are less than fully polished. The papers carry the names of the authors and should be cited accordingly. The findings,(More)
PURPOSE This study investigates the neck/shoulder pain (NSP) and low back pain (LBP) among current high school students in Shanghai and explores the relationship between these pains and their possible influences, including digital products, physical activity, and psychological status. METHODS An anonymous self-assessment was administered to 3,600 students(More)
Age at menarche is closely related to scoliosis progression during adolescence. Current data concerning the timing of menarche between scoliotic and non-scoliotic girls in the literature are conflicting, with inconclusive results. The aim of this study was to investigate the distribution difference of age at menarche for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis(More)
Clinical results of posterior fusion plus pedicle screw fixation in the treatment of upper cervical spine instability were taken under consideration. 24 patients with atlantoaxial instability were treated with C1-2 pedicle screws and rods fixation under general anesthesia. There were 18 males and 6 females with mean age of 49.8 years (age range 17–69(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclooxygenase2 (COX-2), one isoform of cyclooxygenase proinflammatory enzymes, is responsible for tumor development, invasion and metastasis. Due to its role and frequent overexpression in a variety of human malignancies, including osteosarcoma, COX-2 has received considerable attention. However, the function of COX-2 in the pathogenesis of(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of four types of chronic pain (headache, abdominal pain, neck and shoulder pain (NSP), and low back pain (LBP)) and to explore the relationship between the prevalence of chronic pain and self-reported academic pressure in high school students in Shanghai, China. METHOD Three thousand(More)
PURPOSE Although the antitumor efficacy of histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACIs) has been referred to as a promising new treatment strategy in malignancies, how they exert their effects on human osteosarcoma in vitro and in vivo is yet not well understood. In this study, we employed HDACIs suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA) and sodium butyrate (SB) to(More)
Nanofibers have attracted increasing attention in drug delivery and other biomedical applications due to their some special properties. The present study aims to prepare a fiber-based nanosolid dispersion system to enhance the bioavailability of curcumin (CUR). CUR-loaded polyvinyl pyrrolidone (CUR@PVP) nanofibers were successfully prepared via(More)
