Vascular remodeling in the placenta is essential for normal fetal development. The previous studies have demonstrated that in utero exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD, an environmental toxicant) induces the intrauterine fetal death in many species via the activation of aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR). In the current study, we compared the(More)
BACKGROUND D2-40 has been shown a selective marker for lymphatic endothelium, but also shown in the benign cervical basal cells. However, the application of D2-40 immunoreactivity in the cervical basal cells for identifying the grade of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) has not been evaluated. METHODS In this study, the immunoreactive patterns of(More)
Persistent unopposed estrogen stimulation is a central oncogenic mechanism driving the formation of type I endometrial cancer. Recent epidemiologic and clinical studies of endometrial cancer have also revealed a role for insulin resistance, clinically manifested by chronic inflammation. However, the role of inflammation in estrogen-driven endometrial cancer(More)
Ovarian cancer is highly malignant with a gradually increasing incidence and a high mortality rate. Immunosuppression is induced in ovarian cancer, although the mechanism detail is not clear. It has been indicated that HVEM (herpesvirus entry mediator) B- and T-lymphocyte attenuator (BTLA) negatively regulates the immune responses of T lymphocytes. Here,(More)

Taking M2, the broad money supply, as the index of the level of liquidity and M2 /GDP as the index of the surplus of liquidity, the paper examines systematically the long-term and dynamic relationship among the price, the level of liquidity and the surplus of liquidity. The results suggest that it is the surplus of liquidity instead of the level of(More)
Although smoking during pregnancy may lead to many adverse effects, such as fetal growth restriction, placental abruption, stillbirth, and preterm labor, smoking is the only environmental exposure known to consistently reduce the risk of preeclampsia and gestational hypertension. The exact mechanisms through which cigarette smoke reduces the risk of(More)

At present, the relevant research of the term structure of interest rates of our country is mostly directed against a certain specific market or a certain specific method, lacking the integrality. For constructing a systemic, scientific term structure of interest rate of our country, respective term structure of interest rate are deduced from the treasury(More)
AIMS Marijuana is a widely used illicit drug and its consumption during pregnancy has been associated with adverse reproductive outcomes. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of chronic intake of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the major component of marijuana, on trophoblast function, placental development, and birth outcomes. METHODS(More)
