BACKGROUND & AIMS There is a subtle distinction between sporadic colorectal adenomas and cancers (SAC) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)-associated dysplasias and cancers. However, this distinction is clinically important because sporadic adenomas are usually managed by polypectomy alone, whereas IBD-related high-grade dysplasias mandate subtotal(More)
cDNAmicroarrays, combined with bioinformatics analyses, are becomingincreasingly used in current medical research. Existing analytic methods,particularly those that are unsupervised, often have difficulty recognizing subtle differences among predefined subgroups. In contrast, supervised methods, such as Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs), are able to(More)
The purpose of the present work is to study whether the analgesia of "Zusanli" EA was mainly produced by its noxious effect. The antidromic C waves on N. peroneus communis innervating the area of "Zusanli" point were recorded. When "Zusanli" point was stimulated by trains of stimuli, the amplitude of the antidromic C wave was obviously decreased due to(More)
Apolipoprotein B plays a central role in lipoprotein metabolism. Many studies have evaluated the association between Apolipoprotein B gene polymorphisms (XbaI, EcoRI, SpIns/Del, MspI) and the risk for coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction. However, the results remain inconsistent, particularly among different populations. To more precisely(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a leading cause of liver-related mortality. Chronic hepatitis C (CHC) is frequently associated with disturbances in iron homeostasis, with serum iron and hepatic iron stores being elevated. Accumulating evidence indicates that chronic HCV infection suppresses expression of hepatic hepcidin, a key mediator of iron(More)
The experiment was to study whether the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) on neurons in nucleus raphe magnus (NRM) were influenced after lesion of bilateral pyramidal tracts (PT) in the rats. Unit discharges of NRM were recorded extracellularly with glass microelectrodes, and their nociceptive responses were induced by train electro-stimulation of tail. It(More)
The article reviews the main results of recent years study on the relationship between neurons in nucleus raphe magnus (NRM) and moving reflex evoked by noxious stimulation, including: 1. Relative phasic discharge frequency change of on-cell and off-cell in NRM occurred when tail-flick reflex (TF) evoked by noxious stimulation. The relative phasic activity(More)
