Four well known polymorphisms (BsmI, FokI, ApaI, TaqI) in the VDR gene have been implicated in susceptibility to type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), but the results to date have been inconclusive. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between polymorphisms in the VDR gene and T1DM risk by meta-analysis. A total of 57 case-control studies in(More)
Carnitine palmitoyltransferase II (CPT II) deficiency is one of the most common causes of fatty acid oxidation metabolism disorders. However, the molecular mechanism between CPT2 gene polymorphisms and metabolic stress has not been fully clarified. We previously reported that a number of patients show a thermal instable phenotype of compound(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical characteristics, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of penicilliosis among the patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in non-endemic areas of China, and then to discuss its incubation period and the diagnostic performance of serum galactomannan test for penicilliosis. METHODS Medical records and(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a multifactoral and polygenic disease with high prevalence in Southeast Asia and Southern China. Environmental factors and genetic susceptibility play important roles in NPC pathogenesis. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in nuclear factor-kappa B (NFκB) and its(More)
UNLABELLED Protein phosphatase-2A (PP2A) is one of the major cellular serine-threonine phosphatases and functions as a tumor suppressor that negatively regulates the activity of some oncogenic kinases. Recent studies have reported that PP2A expression was suppressed during lung carcinogenesis, we there hypothesized that the single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
To reveal the shared risk factors for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer, and to analyze the mediation effect of COPD during lung carcinogenesis. We conducted four independent case–control studies included 1,511 COPD patients and 1,677 normal lung function controls and 1,559 lung cancer cases and 1,679 cancer-free controls during(More)
To investigate an oncogenic mutation of SETBP1 in the evolution from acute myelomonocytic leukemia (M4) to secondary aCML. Clinical data and molecular studies were analyzed of paired aCML and 'normal'DNA from a case with M4. We identified a mutation in SETBP1 (encoding a p.Asp868Ala alteration). The analysis of paired sample indicated that SETBP1 mutation(More)
Epilepsy is the third leading cause of mental disability in China. This report estimates the prevalence rate of comorbidities with epilepsy-caused mental disability (EMD) and identifies vulnerable Chinese subgroups. The second China National Sample Survey on Disability was used to identify people with EMD based on the WHO International Classification of(More)
