Subtraction hybridization applied to a 'differentiation therapy' model of cancer employing human melanoma cells resulted in the cloning of melanoma differentiation associated gene-7/interleukin-24 (mda-7/IL-24). Initial studies confirm an inverse correlation between mda-7 expression and melanoma development and progression. Forced expression of mda-7 by(More)
This study is the first to investigate the anticancer effect of Schisandra chinensis polysaccharide (SCP) in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cells. The results revealed that SCP treatment showed high cytotoxic potency in Caki-1 cells by inducing apoptosis, which is associated with the disruption of mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP), release of cytochrome c(More)
AIMS Multiple studies have investigated the prognostic role of red blood cell distribution width (RDW) for patients with heart failure (HF), but the results have been inconsistent. The aim of the present study was to estimate the impact of RDW on the prognosis of HF by performing a systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS AND RESULTS The Embase,(More)
An important preprocess in computer-aided orthodontics is to segment teeth from the dental models accurately, which should involve manual interactions as few as possible. But fully automatic partition of all teeth is not a trivial task, since teeth occur in different shapes and their arrangements vary substantially from one individual to another. The(More)
