This study was performed to investigate whether intensive antihypertensive treatment with achieved blood pressure (BP) ≤140/90 mm Hg, as compared with standard treatment with achieved BP ≤150/90 mm Hg, could further improve cardiovascular outcomes in Chinese hypertensive patients older than 70 years. A total of 724 participants were randomly assigned to(More)
Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) can selectively kill tumor cells and enhance therapy in vivo. However, concerns regarding its considerable liver toxicity limit its use in humans as a cancer therapy. Tumor molecular targeted peptide 1 (TMTP1) has previously been reported by our laboratory to target primary tumors and(More)
Peptide-based therapies have emerged as one of the most promising therapeutics strategy in cancer-targeted therapy. Using our laboratory newly identified peptide TMTP1 and diphtheria toxin, we developed a new fusion protein that showed remarkable ability to target highly metastatic tumors. Fusion protein toxins were generated by fusing the first 390 amino(More)
The Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) sequence was selected by using phage-display peptides to target tumors, focusing on targeting ·(v) integrins in tumor blood vessels. Recent studies suggest that peptides containing the RGD sequence can bind to tumor cells, as well as tumor endothelial cells. To investigate whether the RGD peptide has other effects on tumor cells(More)
The treatment of cancer such as oligonucleotides or peptides requires efficient delivery systems. A novel peptide, TMTP1, previously derived and identified in our laboratory showed remarkable ability to target highly metastatic tumors both in vitro and in vivo, even at the early stage of occult metastasis foci. TMTP1 moderately inhibited tumor cell(More)
The imaging of tumor cells and tumor tissue samples is very important for cancer detection and therapy. We have taken advantages of fluorescent silica nanoparticles (FSiNPs) coupled with a molecular recognition element that allows for effective in vitro and ex vivo imaging of tumor cells and tissues. In this study, we report on the targeting and imaging of(More)
Collision tumors of the sella turcica involving metastases to pituitary adenomas are rare. We report a case of a collision tumor involving metastatic lung cancer with an emphasis on the neuroimaging and histopathological studies. A review of the literature including the diagnostic and management implications as well as pathogenetic mechanisms is also(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the change of the serum trough concentration and its pharmacokinetics of vancomycin in patients with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP), and to analyze the factors influencing vancomycin concentration. METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted. Steady-state trough concentrations of vancomycin from patients (18-80 years old) with SAP(More)
Effects of antisense Ki-67 cDNA transfection on breast cancer cells were investigated in this study. Transfection of antisense Ki-67 cDNA resulted in a 70%-80% reduction in proliferation of MDA-MB-435s, cells which highly expressed Ki-67 mRNA and protein. Transwell assay showed that mobility and invasion capability was dramatically inhibited by 50%-60%, and(More)
The Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) sequence was selected by using phage-display peptides to target tumors, focusing on targeting alpha(v) integrins in tumor blood vessels. Recent studies suggest that peptides containing the RGD sequence can bind to tumor cells, as well as tumor endothelial cells. To investigate whether the RGD peptide has other effects on tumor cells(More)
