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)
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.

BACKGROUND Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the leading cause of death from gynaecologic malignancies and has a poor prognosis due to metastasis. Drugs targeting the angiogenesis pathway significantly improve patient outcome. However, the key factors linking angiogenesis and metastasis have not been elucidated. In this study, we found Tie2 expressing(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)
Constant coefficient method is the traditional way to measure the persistence of inflation series. But this kind of method can not reflect effectively the change of breakpoint and economic situation. To the lack of the existing methods, the paper examines the breakpoint change in the coefficient of inflation persistence in the United States, and at the same(More)

Using the data of aluminium of Shanghai and London Futures Exchange, the long-term and dynamic relationship between them are examined. The results suggest that: (1) there are two-way causal relationship between the prices of Shanghai and London Futures Exchange at the significant level of 10%; (2) the cointegrating residual can be an important(More)
The paper researches on the inflation level forecasting for China and the United States in one kind of univariate and three kinds of bivariate cases, using Vector Autoregressive and Bayesian Vector Autoregressive Models, based on the rolling-sample forecasts and the mean absolute percentage error standard. Empirical tests show that, both China and the(More)
