The combination of gemcitabine (G), vinorelbine (V), and pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (D) has proved to be effective in relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). Its efficacy in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) remains to be discussed. We retrospectively evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of the dose-adjusted gemcitabine, vinorelbine, liposomal doxorubicin (GVD) in(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE T-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) are common in Asia, It's biological behavior is different from B-cell NHL. It often shows lower chemo-sensitivity, high incidence of relapse and poor prognosis. This study was designed to analyse the clinical characteristics and to evaluate the effectiveness and toxicity of standard CHOP regimen in(More)
The dorsal motor nucleus of vagus (DMV) plays an important role in the regulation of gastrointestinal function. Dopamine (DA) exerts potent neuromodulatory effects on the motoneurons in the DMV via dopamine receptors (DRs). However, the distribution of DRs and their neurochemical phenotypes in the DMV are unclear. In the present study, the distribution of(More)
BACKGROUND Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra (SN). Destruction of the SN can lead to gastric dyskinesis accompanied by decreased expression of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) and increased expression of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) in the dorsal vagus(More)
Various studies on lymphoma microenvironment have demonstrated the prognostic impact of tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) in patients with B-cell lymphoma. Little is known about the correlation between TAMs and treatment outcome in mature T- and natural killer (NK) cell lymphomas. We analyzed the prognostic relevance of CD68+ TAMs by immunohistochemical(More)
The role of temozolomide in untreated PCNSL patients has not yet been clearly defined. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and toxicity of MT and MC chemotherapy in this population. A total of 41 consecutive patients were enrolled from March 2001 to July 2011. The ORR and CRR for MT vs. MC were 70% vs. 61.9% and 45% vs. 38.1% on ITT basis,(More)
INTRODUCTION Hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation has been reported in B-cell lymphoma patients with resolved hepatitis B (hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg]-negative and hepatitis B core antibody [HBcAb]-positive). This study aimed to assess HBV reactivation and hepatitis occurrence in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients with resolved hepatitis(More)
BACKGROUND Extranodal natural killer T-cell lymphoma (NKTCL), nasal type, is a rare and aggressive malignancy that occurs predominantly in Asian and Latin American populations. Although Epstein-Barr virus infection is a known risk factor, other risk factors and the pathogenesis of NKTCL are not well understood. We aimed to identify common genetic variants(More)
A novel dihydro-aryl/alkylsulfanyl-cyclohexylmethyl-oxopyrimidines (S-DACOs) combinatory library was synthesized and evaluated with C8166 cells infected by the HIV-1(IIIB) in vitro, using Nevirapine (NVP) and Zidovudine (AZT) as positive control. The anti-HIV screening results revealed that C-6-cyclohexylmethyl substituted pyrimidinones possessed higher(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Recently, immunocytochemistry and immunomagnetic enrichment have been used in detecting circulating tumor cells (CTCs). This study was designed to investigate the sensitivity and specificity of modified immunomagnetic enrichment of tumor cells in combination with fluorescent immunocytochemistry in detecting CTCs in peripheral blood of(More)
