OBJECTIVE : Several previous studies have reported the role variant of ERCC1 rs3212986 and ERCC2 rs13181 polymorphisms in the risk of glioma, but the results of these studies are inconsistent. Therefore, we aimed to conduct a meta-analysis to investigate the role of ERCC1 rs3212986 and ERCC2 rs13181 on the risk of glioma. METHODS A comprehensive research(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) display aberrant expression patterns and functional abnormalities in many types of cancer. However, their roles in primary gallbladder carcinoma (PGC) have not been well documented. miR-335 has been demonstrated to be involved in tumorigenesis of several cancers in the digestive system. The aim of this study was to investigate(More)
Abdominal cocoon (AC) is a rare condition, that leading to acute or chronic small bowel obstruction, characterized by a total or partial encapsulation of the small bowel by a fibrous membrane or sac‑like cocoon, sometimes colon, uterus or accessories are encased in. The disease is characterized as either primary or secondary to other causes. The main(More)
PURPOSE To investigate Helicobacter pylori (H.pylori) associated genome-wide aberrant methylation patterns in gastric mucosa and blood leukocyte DNA, a population-based study was conducted in Linqu County. RESULTS A total of 3000 and 386 CpGs were differentially methylated after successful H.pylori eradication in gastric mucosa and blood leukocyte DNA(More)
Niflumic acid (NFA) is a novel gap junction (GJ) inhibitor. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of NFA on GJ communication and the expression of connexin (Cx) in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) of mesenteric arterioles of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Whole‑cell patch clamp recording demonstrated that NFA at 1x10‑4 M(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the necessity of drilling the occipital condyle in a tailored far lateral approach for resection of ventrolateral foramen magnum meningiomas (FMMs). METHODS Clinical data of 15 patients with ventrolateral FMMs who underwent surgery during a 6-year period were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS A retrocondylar approach was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the implications of dural tail sign (DTS) in the tailored far lateral approach for resection of ventral foramen magnum meningiomas (FMMs). METHODS Clinical data for 16 patients treated surgically for ventral FMMs over 5 years were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS The DTS was positive in 11 cases (68.8%) and negative in 5 cases(More)
BACKGROUND Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) is a small protein that potently promotes the survival of many types of neurons. Detection of GDNF is vital to monitoring the survival of sympathetic and sensory neurons. However, the specific method for GDNF detection is also un-discovered. The purpose of this study is to explore the method for(More)
