OBJECTIVE Recent studies proved that patients with diabetes were at significantly higher risk of developing colorectal cancer. However, the association between diabetes mellitus and the risk of colorectal adenoma remains undefined. Thus we conducted an updated meta-analysis to identify the association between diabetes mellitus and the risk of colorectal(More)
Rhododendron aureum Georgi (Ericaceae) is a perennial alpine shrub endemic to Changbai Mountain in China. We used ISSR and RAPD markers to describe the diversity and genetic structure within and among four natural populations located at different altitudes. DNA from 66 individuals was amplified with ten ISSR markers and seven RAPD markers. High genetic(More)
Long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) play important roles in regulating the biological functions and underlying molecular mechanisms of colorectal cancer (CRC). Here, we investigated the association of linc-POU3F3 and prognosis in CRC. We demonstrated that linc-POU3F3 was overexpressed in CRC tissues and positively correlated with tumor grade and N(More)
NY-ESO-1 is a cancer/testis (CT) antigen expressed in normal adult tissues solely in the testicular germ cells of normal adults and in various cancers. It induces specific humoral and cellular immunity in patients with NY-ESO-1-expressing cancer. We compared the expression of NY-ESO-1 mRNA in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients by using various primers(More)
BACKGROUND Insulin-like growth factor II (IGF-II) is a fetal growth protein and an important proangiogenic factor controlled by four promoters (P), of which P2-P4 are inactive in the adult liver. Reactivation and dysregulation of IGF-IIP3 in particular is associated with the attenuation of apoptosis and increased proliferation in a number of liver cancer(More)
Epiboly represents the process by which keratinocytes migrate to envelop a surface. The authors have been investigating a living bilayered skin construct (BSC) that is used in the treatment of lower extremity wounds due to venous insufficiency and diabetes. The construct demonstrates epiboly after injury and incubation in vitro, and this model may be useful(More)
Survivin, a new member of the inhibitor of apoptosis protein (IAP) family, both inhibits apoptosis and regulates the cell cycle. It is overexpressed in breast tumor tissues. In this study, we designed two survivin specific DNAzymes (DRz1 and DRz2) targeting survivin mRNA. The results showed that DRz1 could decrease the expression of survivin by nearly 60%.(More)
Deer antler preparations have been used to strengthen bones for centuries. It is particularly rich in collagen type I. This study aimed to unravel part of the purported bioremedial effect of Sika deer antler collagen type I (SDA-Col I) on bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells. The results suggest that SDA-Col I might be used to promote and regulate osteoblast(More)
Postoperative radiotherapy (PRT) is widely advocated for patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck that are considered to be at high risk of recurrence after surgical resection. The aims of this study were to evaluate the treatment outcomes of PRT for patients with laryngeal carcinoma and to identify the value of several prognostic(More)
