Recent studies have shown that primitive stem cells can mobilize and differentiate into hepatocytes. We investigated the time and extent in which cells of recipient origins could differentiate into hepatocytes and other cells in human liver allografts. Microsatellite analysis, which can assess quantitatively the proportions of recipient and donor DNA, was(More)
BACKGROUND The modified histology activity index (HAI) score has been extensively used as an additional primary or secondary end point in most phase III pivotal therapeutic clinical trials on chronic hepatitis B. Improvement in modified HAI after antiviral therapy has usually been defined as a 2-point reduction in modified HAI score. AIM We studied(More)
PURPOSE We investigated if programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression levels were prognostic of survival outcomes after intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for non-metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS AND MATERIALS 104 patients with non-metastatic NPC treated with radical IMRT were investigated for their PD-L1 expression by(More)
Four experiments examined rats' sensitivity to molar and molecular factors on instrumental schedules of reinforcement. Rats were exposed to a variable interval schedule with a positive feedback loop (VI+), such that faster responding led to a shorter interreinforcement interval. In Experiments 1 and 2, rats responded faster on a variable response (VR)(More)
