Influenza virus undergoes constant antigenic evolution, and therefore influenza vaccines must be reformulated each year. Time is necessary to produce a vaccine that is antigenically matched to a pandemic strain. A goal of many research works is to produce universal vaccines that can induce protective immunity to influenza A viruses of various subtypes.(More)

Some genetic alterations of glutathione S-transferase omega 2 (GSTO2) have been reported to increase the risk of many malignancies, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC); however, their prognostic capability remained unresolved in HCC patients treated with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE). To fill this gap, we genotyped three well-defined(More)
Tyrosine kinases (TKs) is a family of tyrosine protein kinases with important functions in the regulation of a broad variety of physiological cell processes. Overactivity of TK disturbs cellular homeostasis and has been linked to the development of certain diseases, including various fibrotic diseases. In regard to liver fibrosis, several TKs, such as(More)
Aberrant activity of tyrosine kinases has been proved to be associated with multiple diseases including fibrotic diseases. Tyrosine kinases inhibitors (TKIs) might be a novel approach to transform the anti-fibrotic treatment. However, both beneficial and adverse effects are observed by researchers when using these TKIs in either preclinical animal models or(More)
As the most important detoxifying enzymes in liver, glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) can protect hepatocytes against carcinogens. We conducted a large cohort study to investigate the prognostic value of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in seven encoding genes of GSTs for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Twelve SNPs were genotyped and correlated with(More)
