Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and intestinal metaplasia (IM) are each associated with an increased risk of gastric cancer (GC). To explore further the influences of H. pylori and IM on GC, H. pylori and subtypes of IM were evaluated in 135 sex and age-matched case and control pairs. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals of developing(More)
The most prominent cellular changes in heat-shock response are induction of HSPs synthesis and reorganisation of cytoskeleton. Vincristine was used as a tool to evaluate the integrity of microtubules in 9L rat brain tumour cells recovering from heat-shock treatment. Cells treated at 45 degrees C for 15 min and recovered under normal growing condition became(More)
p53 immunostaining was evaluated in cancerous epithelia and adjacent intestinal metaplasia of 135 gastric cancer specimens. The differential p53 overexpression in different subtypes of intestinal metaplasia and gastric cancer suggests that type III intestinal metaplasia is the commonest lesion in dysplasia-carcinoma transition, particularly in the(More)
This study describes the emergence of a multimodality modeling workshop involving a 3D computer model, aiming to facilitate the workshop participants' learning of their self-generated astronomy topic – lunar libration. This qualitative study took place in designing learning environments in informal learning contexts that leveraged five university students'(More)
Regulation of Ca(2+) transport is vital in physiological processes, including lactation, proliferation and apoptosis. The plasmalemmal Ca(2+) pump isoform 2 (PMCA2) a calcium ion efflux pump, was the first protein identified to be crucial in the transport of Ca(2+) ions into milk during lactation in mice. In these studies we show that PMCA2 is also(More)
