The purpose of this study was to investigate the inhibitory effects of grapes on the human umbilical vein endothelial (HUVE) cells' capillary tube formation and matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) expression secreted into the medium. Four different grape varieties (Concord, Niagara, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir) were extracted using 80% acetone and the(More)
Consumption of plant foods has been negatively associated with the risk of developing chronic diseases, which is partly attributed to their rich and diverse phytochemicals. To promote the rational and effective application of Adinandra tea (Adinandra Jack), a traditional Chinese tea (Shiyacha) widely consumed as a health beverage, the complete phytochemical(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical characteristics of children with critical hand-foot-mouth disease (HFMD) who were treated with mechanical ventilation and to explore the risk factors for poor prognosis. METHODS The clinical data of 63 children with critical HFMD who were admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit between April 2012 and September(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the effects of c9,t11-conjugated linoleic acid (c9,t11-CLA) on invasive ability of human gastric carcinoma cell line (SGC-7901) and to explore its possible mechanism. METHODS Reconstituted basement membrane invasion assay was used to evaluate invasive ability of cancer cells. Expression of TIMP-1, TIMP-2 and nm23-H(1) mRNA was measured(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of c9,t11-conjugated linoleic acid (c9,t11-CLA) on the adhesion of human gastric carcinoma cell line (SGC-7901). METHODS SGC-7901 cells were at first treated with different concentrations (25, 50, 100, 200 micromol/L) of c9,t11-CLA and 1 mL/L ethanol (as a negative control) for 24 h. Using adhesion assay and Western blot, we(More)
AIM To determine the effect of apoptosis on gastric cancer cells (SGC-7901) induced by cis-9, trans-11-conjugated linoleic acid (c9, t11-CLA) and its possible mechanism in the inhibition of cancer cells growth. METHODS Using cell culture, flow cytometery and immunocytochemical techniques, we examined the cell growth, frequency of apoptosis and(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of c9, t11-conjugated linoleic acid (c9, t11-CLA) on the invasion of human gastric carcinoma cell line and its possible mechanism of preventing metastasis. METHODS Using reconstituted basement membrane invasion, chemotaxis, adhesion, PAGE substrate zymography and RT-PCR assays, we analyzed the abilities of invasion, direct(More)
