Thalidomide (T) and lenalidomide (R) have been used as first-line therapy for previously untreated myeloma. However, direct head-to-head comparison between them is lacking. We performed an indirect meta-analysis to assess the treatment effects of lenalidomide- versus thalidomide-based regimens using common comparators. A comprehensive literature search was(More)
The objective of the study was to investigate the effects and safety of novel agents such as bortezomib and lenalidomide in the treatment of newly diagnosed patients with multiple myeloma. We performed a comprehensive meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs). An initial search yielded 627 citations, of which 10 RCTs enrolling 4534 patients met(More)
It is indicated that there are important molecules interacting with brain nervous systems to regulate feeding and energy balance by influencing the signaling pathways of these systems, but relatively few of the critical players have been identified. In the present study, we provide the evidence for the role of Abelson helper integration site 1 (Ahi1)(More)
Growing evidence suggests that the brain, in particular the hypothalamus, directly senses hormones and nutrients to initiate feeding behavior and metabolic responses in the control of energy homeostasis. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this important process have remained largely unknown. Our study provides the evidence for the role of Abelson(More)
OBJECTIVE To understand the bacterial profile and antibiotic resistance patterns in diabetic foot infection (DFI) in different Wagner's grades, IDSA/IWGDF grades, and different ulcer types in Guangzhou, in order to provide more detailed suggestion to the clinician about the empirical antibiotic choice. METHODS 207 bacteria were collected from 117 DFIs in(More)
UNLABELLED Although high-dose cyclophosphamide seems to achieve durable complete remission, there are still concerns about its too much early toxicity. So, we designed a clinical study to investigate the effects of high-dose cyclophosphamide/ATG combined with cord blood infusion as first-line therapy for patients with severe aplastic anemia. PATIENTS AND(More)
Recent studies performed provide mechanistic insight into effects of the microbiota on cholesterol metabolism, but less focus was given to how cholesterol impacts the gut microbiota. In this study, ApoE-/- Sprague Dawley (SD) rats and their wild-type counterparts (n = 12) were, respectively, allocated for two dietary condition groups (normal chow and(More)
