Golgi protein-73 (GP73) is a newly identified candidate serum marker for HCC, but GP73 study now is lesser in Asian population. The aims of this study were to determine how GP73 is detected in the serum of healthy, hepatitis B, cirrhosis and HCC by western blotting and RT-PCR, and to establish the sensitivity and specificity of serum GP73 protein and RNA(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical benefits and safety of the long-term use of macrolides in patients with non-cystic fibrosis (non-CF) bronchiectasis. METHODS Embase, Pubmed, the Cochrane Library and Web of Science databases were searched from inception up to March 2014. The primary outcome was the improvement of(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to compare efficacy, safety, and sexual function between inside-out transobturator tape (TVT-O) and tension-free vaginal tape SECUR (TVT-S) procedures for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) treatment. METHODS Ninety-four women without concomitant pelvic organ prolapse repairs were randomly allocated to undergo TVT-O or TVT-S(More)
B3G wireless networks are expected to be characterized by the pouring of diversified services supported by different operators. In parallel with this, how to efficiently utilize the limited radio spectrum and guarantee the operator¿s profits has become a joint economical and technical problem. As a possible solution, in this paper, we set forth a novel(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) represent a potential therapeutic target for glioma. We determined the molecular mechanism of inhibitory effect of human umbilical cord-derived MSCs (hUC-MSCs) on the growth of C6 glioma cells. We demonstrated that hUC-MSCs inhibited C6 cell growth and modulated the cell cycle to G0/G1 phase. The expression of β-catenin and(More)
An increasing body of evidence indicates that miRNAs have a critical role in carcinogenesis and cancer progression; however, the role of miRNAs in the tumorigenesis of adencarcinoma of gastric esophageal junction (AGEJ) remains largely unclear. The SGC7901 and BGC-823 gastric cancer cell lines were used. The expressions of miR-645 and IFIT2(More)
BACKGROUND The excision repair cross-complementing gene 1 (ERCC1), which is important in the repair of cisplatin-DNA adducts, is reported to be related to cisplatin resistance in tumor cells. The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of low-dose cisplatin on expression of ERCC1 gene and to confirm the correlation between ERCC1 and cisplatin(More)
Mounting evidence suggests a causal relationship between specific bacterial infections and the development of certain malignancies. However, the possible role of the keystone periodontal pathogen, Porphyromonas gingivalis, in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains unknown. Therefore, we examined the presence of P. gingivalis in esophageal mucosa,(More)
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a clinical disorder associated with changes of lung structure. Concurrent infection is a serious complication and one of the major factors that exacerbates ILD. Pathogen screening is a critical step in early diagnosis and proper treatment of ILD with secondary infection. Here we analyzed distribution and drug(More)
In traditional therapy with Chinese medicine, vitexin has several pharmacological properties, including antinociceptive, antispasmodic, antioxidant, antimyeloperoxidase, and α-glucosidase inhibitory activities. Recently, vitexin was shown to protect the heart against ischemia/reperfusion injury in an in vitro model by inhibiting apoptosis. The purpose of(More)
