BACKGROUND The therapeutic use of cannabis and cannabis-based medicines raises safety concerns for patients, clinicians, policy-makers, insurers, researchers and regulators. Although the efficacy of cannabinoids is being increasingly demonstrated in randomized controlled trials, most safety information comes from studies of recreational use. METHODS We(More)
The Silkie is a typical Chinese breed of chicken. In 2012, batches of Silkies were found to have diffuse tumor-like nodules on their skin after feather removal, when they were slaughtered at about 60 days old. Gross examination showed no visible neoplastic lesions on the visceral organs and peripheral nerves, except slight splenomegaly in individual(More)
BACKGROUND Parental distress following the birth of a premature infant diminishes the parent's ability to be sensitive to the infant's cues, and this may affect infant developmental outcomes. AIMS The present study examined the effects of maternal anxiety during infant hospitalization in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) on the interactive behavior(More)
microRNA-126 (miR-126) has been reported to play tumor suppressor roles in various types of cancers. Although it has been reported that miR-126 expression is downregulated in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), the precise role and underlying molecular mechanism of miR-126 in PTC remains unclear. Therefore, the aims of the present study were to investigate(More)
As the number of therapeutic proteins produced by mammalian cell cultures in the pharmaceutical industry continues to increase, the need to improve productivity and ensure consistent product quality during process development activities becomes more significant. Rational medium design is known to improve cell culture performance, but an understanding of(More)
Eight-week-old male Kunming mice were administered either melamine (MA, 30, 140, or 700 mg/kg/day), a melamine and cyanuric acid mixture (MC, each at 15, 70, or 350 mg/kg/day), or vehicle (control) for 3 consecutive days. Testicular toxicity was evaluated on days 1 and 5 after the final exposure. The testicular and epididymal weights and serum testosterone(More)
