The present study aimed to investigate the gene functions and expression profiles in perihematomal (PH) brain regions following spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage. The gene expression profiles were downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus database under accession number GSE24265, which includes 11 brain samples from different regions, including four(More)
Five right-handed patients with subcortical aphasia that involved the left hemisphere subcortical lesion sites were subjected to CT scans. Given their etiology, two cases were infarctions and the other three were hemorrhages. Two of the patients presented an involvement of the anterior limb of the internal capsule and of the basal ganglia and an anterior(More)
CDH1 inactivation is important in tumor metas-tasis. In the present study, it was suggested that the mRNA and protein levels of CDH1 decreased in metastatic neuroblastoma (NB) tissues compared with those in primary NB tissues. The aim of the study was to explore the regulatory mechanisms of CDH1 downregulation in metastatic NB. MicroRNAs are small(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperperfusion syndrome (HPS) following carotid angioplasty with stenting (CAS) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. At present, there are no reliable parameters to predict HPS. The aim of this study was to clarify whether perfusion computed tomography (CT) is a feasible and reliable tool in predicting HPS after CAS. (More)
Prostanoids have played an important role in the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). However, whether prostanoid therapy provides a survival advantage is still not clear. The aim of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of prostanoids in PAH, focusing on the improvement in overall survival. Trials were identified from(More)
Preoperative radiotherapy may improve the resectability and subsequent local control of rectal cancers. However, the extent of radiation induced regression in these tumours varies widely between individuals. To date no reliable predictive marker of radiation sensitivity in rectal cancer has been identified. At the cellular level, radiation injury initiates(More)
