The objectives of the experiment were to evaluate growth and carcass characteristics, organ weight, meat quality and intramuscular fatty acid (FA) and amino acid composition between the Chinese indigenous pig breed Dahe and the crossbred Dawu. The Dahe pigs had lower average daily gain (P < 0.001) and a higher feed conversion ratio (P < 0.001) compared with(More)
BACKGROUND Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) has been found in tumor neovasculature endothelial cells (NECs) of non-prostate cancers and may become the most promising target for anti-tumor therapy. To study the value of PSMA as a potential new target for lung cancer treatment, PSMA expression in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung(More)
This study was performed to assess the response of regulatory T cells (Tregs) following cryosurgery in prostate cancer (PCa) patients by measuring their frequency and immune function. Blood was collected prior to and at 4 and 8 weeks after treatment in 30 patients with high-risk PCa who underwent cryosurgery and from 15 healthy volunteers. Circulating(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the anti-tumor immune response of cryoablation for prostate cancer. METHODS Mouse model of prostate cancer was established. And the tumor-bearing mice were divided into three groups: control group (Group A), surgery group (Group B) and cryoablation group (Group C). Blood samples were withdrawn before and at Days 7, 14, 21(More)
OBJECTIVE To engineer diversified shapes of neocartilage from auto-cartilage and provide a new method to reconstruct cartilage. METHODS Cartilage obtained from the ear of 5-week-old New Zealand rabbits was cut into pieces of 0.5 mm x 0.5 mm, which were seeded onto the three-dimensional polylactic acid foams. The cartilage-polymer construct was implanted(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the anti-tumor immune response to percutaneous cryoablation in patients with local prostate cancer. METHODS We treated 10 patients with local prostate cancer by percutaneous cryoablation, collected the blood samples before and 2 weeks after the treatment and isolated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). Protein lysates were made(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical efficacy of transcatheter renal arterial embolization (TRAE) plus cryoablation in the treatment of medium and advanced stage renal carcinomas. METHODS The patients with medium and advanced stage renal carcinomas were randomized into 2 groups: TRAE group (A, n = 53) and TRAE plus cryoablation group (B, n = 51)(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the changes about numbers and immune functions of splenic DC (dendritic cell) after a combined therapy of cryoablation and GM-CSF (granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor) for prostate cancer. METHODS Murine model of prostate cancer was established. And the tumor-bearing mice were divided into 4 groups: control group (Group(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the clinicopathological characteristics and prognostic factors in prostate cancer patients under 59 years of age. METHODS From January 2000 to October 2011, 566 prostate cancer patients underwent treatments. Among them, 72 (12.7%) patients under 59 years of age with the integrated clinical data were reviewed. The median follow-up(More)
