MicroRNAs play important roles in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy (DN). In this study, we found that high glucose upregulated miR-27a expression in cultured glomerular mesangial cells and in the kidney glomeruli of streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. miR-27a knockdown prevented high glucose-induced mesangial cell proliferation and also(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of thyroid cancer has progressively increased over the past few decades, and the most frequent types of this cancer are papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and small primary tumors. In PTC, oncogene activation is known to occur at a high frequency. However, the potential roles of tumor suppressor genes in thyroid carcinogenesis remain(More)
The study aims to improve the performance of current computer-aided schemes for the detection of lung lesions, especially the low-contrast in gray density or irregular in shape. The relative position between suspected lesion and whole lung is, for the first time, added as a latent feature to enrich current Three-dimensional (3D) features such as shape,(More)
An Active Appearance Model (AAM) is a computer vision model which can be used to effectively segment lung fields in CT images. However, the fitting result is often inadequate when the lungs are affected by high-density pathologies. To overcome this problem, we propose a Higher-order Singular Value Decomposition (HOSVD)-based Three-dimensional (3D) AAM. An(More)
Tensor Compressive Sensing (CS) is an emerging approach for higher order data representation, such as medical imaging, video sequences and multi-sensor networks. In this paper, we propose an Adaptive Tensor CS (ATCS) scheme for Three-dimensional (3D) images, especially those which contain noise. First, we find the relationship between reconstruction(More)
Forkhead box P3 (FoxP3) expression in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is associated with resistance to radioiodine treatment. The sodium iodine symporter (NIS) is a plasma membrane glycoprotein, the repression of which may render the tumor refractive to radioiodine therapy. In this study, samples from 90 PTCs as well as 40 normal thyroid tissues were(More)
INTRODUCTION The principal aim of this study was to investigate differences in perception of soft-tissue facial profiles and dental esthetics between young Chinese adults and orthodontists. METHODS Eight hundred ninety-two subjects (444 male, 448 female), ages 16 to 24 years, chose 1 image from among 5 profile silhouettes and from among 10 ranked color(More)
