Lymphotoxin-alpha (LTA) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that plays an important role in the inflammatory and immunologic response. Numerous studies have shown LTA polymorphisms as risk factors for cancers, but the results remain inconclusive. The goal of the present meta-analyses is to establish the associations between cancers and four LTA variants(More)
The PPARD polymorphisms were shown to be associated with circulating lipoprotein metabolism in various diseases. We aimed to check the contribution of PPARD rs2016520 and lipid concentration to the risk of intracerebral hemorrhages (ICH) and brain tumors (BT) in Han Chinese. A total of 864 participants were included in the case-control study. The melting(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is the current imaging 'gold standard' for diagnosis of arteriovenous malformation (AVM). The latest technique, four-dimensional computed tomography (4D-CT), offers a new diagnostic method for assessing AVM in real time. This study used a 320-detector-row CT scanner to compare the value of 4D-CT(More)
Powdery mildew (PM) is the most common fungal disease of cucumber and other cucurbit crops, while breeding the PM-resistant materials is the effective way to defense this disease, and the recent development of modern genetics and genomics make us aware of that studying the resistance genes is the essential way to breed the PM high-resistance plant. With the(More)
We aimed to evaluate the association of rs964184 of BUD13-ZNF259 gene with the risk of hemorrhagic stroke (HS). A total of 138 HS cases and 587 controls were recruited for the association of rs964184 of BUD13-ZNF259 gene with the risk of HS. Tm shift PCR was used for genotyping. We were unable to find the association of rs964184 of BUD13-ZNF259 gene with(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the role of DNA methylation of the platelet-derived growth factor-D (PDGFD) gene promoter in the development of intracranial aneurysms (IAs) and brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVMs). A total of 70 patients with IAs or BAVMs and 26 control individuals were enrolled for this study. The PDGFD level in the plasma was(More)
The rupture of dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) is a serious complication endangering the lives of patients. It is difficult to treat such ruptured DAVF with large intracranial hematoma since lacking of early diagnostic methods. Meanwhile, there was no consensus of how to surgically treat these patients in early stage. In this study, we tried to use(More)
This study was to evaluate the value of four-dimensional computed tomography angiography (4D-CTA) in the diagnosis of intracranial dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF). This study included 16 patients who were diagnosed to have intracranial DAVF by digital subtraction angiography (DSA). The 4D-CTA was performed by Aquilion ONE multi-detector CT scanner(More)
