The present study was designed to clarify this relationship through a pooled analysis of the numerous epidemiological studies focusing on this association. METHODS Published data addressing the association between polymorphism of the IL-1 gene and stroke(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess structural brain changes in survivors of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with chemotherapy treatment by combining voxel-based morphometry (VBM) and tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS). METHODS 28 ALL patients (mean age: 40.71±8.58years, years since diagnosis: 7-38) and 20 age-matched control subjects (mean age: 42.95±6.39years)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is a hormone that regulates phosphorus and vitamin D metabolism. Elevated FGF23 concentrations are associated with excess risk of cardiovascular disease. Associations of FGF23 with stroke outcomes are less clear. METHODS Using a case-cohort study design, we examined the association of baseline(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to compare X-ray mammography (MG) and ultrasonography (US) in the diagnosis of breast diseases in Chinese women. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed X-ray mammograms of 274 patients with US and surgical/pathological results of breast diseases diagnosed at The Second Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University(More)
