BACKGROUND Increased dietary calcium might reduce colorectal cancer risk, possibly by reduction of colonic epithelial hyperproliferation, but not all studies have demonstrated this. Little is known about the effects of calcium on colonic apoptosis. AIM To quantify the effects of increasing calcium on apoptosis and cell proliferation in normal murine(More)
Herbal Epimedium species have been widely in Traditional Chinese Medicine for sexual enhancement, immunity improvement, anticancer and anti-aging treatment, with flavonoids and polysaccharides being the major active components. However, exhaustive depletion of wild sources warrants germplasm evaluation and quality resource exploration. A preliminarily(More)
A metabolomic study was performed to investigate the biochemical perturbation of the serum samples from neural tube defects affected pregnant women (cases, n = 80) and normal pregnant subjects (controls, n = 95). The serum metabolome was detected using ultra performance liquid chromatography coupled to time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC/TOF–MS). The(More)
Herba Epimedii has been widely used for sexual enhancement, immunity improvement, anticancer, and anti-aging as traditional Chinese medicine and health care plant, and flavonoids and polysaccharides are the major active components. E. sagittatum is the species with the widest distribution, greatest morphological variation, higher medicinal and healthy(More)
Intracochlear application of exogenous or transgenic neurotrophins, such as neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) and brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), could promote the resprouting of spiral ganglion neuron (SGN) neurites in deafened animals. These resprouting neurites might reduce the gap between cochlear implant electrodes and their targeting SGNs, allowing for(More)
High-mobility group box chromosomal protein 1 (HMGB-1), a nuclear DNA binding protein, was recently rediscovered as a new proinflammatory cytokine. The purpose of this study was to determine HMGB-1 expression in vivo and to identify the effect of extracellular HMGB-1 in inflammatory process associated with bone destruction in cholesteatoma. We investigated(More)
