BACKGROUND Hypoxia-inducible transcription factor-1alpha (HIF-1alpha), which plays an important role in controlling the hypoxia-induced glycolysis pathway, is a "master" gene in the tissue hypoxia response during tumor development. However, its role in the apoptosis of non-small cell lung cancer remains unknown. Here, we have studied the effects of(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with asthma demonstrate circadian variations in the airway inflammation and lung function. Pinealectomy reduces the total inflammatory cell number in the asthmatic rat lung. We hypothesize that melatonin, a circadian rhythm regulator, may modulate the circadian inflammatory variations in asthma by stimulating the chemotaxins expression(More)
We introduce a new lightweight generic compiler that is able to transform any passively forward secure two-message key exchange (KE) protocols into authenticated key exchange (AKE) protocols with security in the presence of active adversaries who can reveal critical session specific information such as long-term or ephemeral secrets and can establish(More)
The objective of this study was to explore the effects of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) on the development and prognosis of lung cancer precise radiotherapy-induced radiation pneumonitis. Clinical materials of 84 lung cancer patients who had radiation pneumonitis after precise radiotherapy were retrospectively analyzed, and the patients were divided into(More)
