BACKGROUND A recent genome-wide association study identified STK39as a candidate gene for blood pressure (BP) in Europeans. Subsequently, several studies have attempted to replicate the association across different ethnic populations. However, the results have been inconsistent. OBJECTIVE AND METHODS We performed a meta-analysis to elucidate the(More)
AIM New technologies for the early detection of pancreatic cancer (PC) are urgently needed. The aim of the present study was to screen for the potential protein biomarkers in serum using proteomic fingerprint technology. METHODS Magnetic beads combined with surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization (SELDI) TOF MS were used to profile and compare the(More)
The xeroderma pigmentosum group D (XPD) and human 8-oxoguanine glycosylase 1 (hOGG1) genes have been suggested to play an important role in the pathogenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the results have been inconsistent. In this study, we performed a meta-analysis to clarify the associations of polymorphisms of XPD and hOGG1 genes with HCC(More)
BACKGROUND Triple sulfonamide vaginal cream has been used to treat bacterial vaginosis for many years. There are few studies in which triple sulfonamide cream has been compared with newer regimens. GOAL To compare the efficacy and safety of clindamycin phosphate vaginal cream with that of triple sulfonamide vaginal cream in the treatment of bacterial(More)
