The basic premise of high yield in rice is to improve leaf photosynthetic efficiency and coordinate the source-sink relationship in rice plants. Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) related to morphological traits and chlorophyll content of rice leaves were detected at the stages of heading to maturity, and a major QTL (qLSCHL4) related to flag leaf shape and(More)
BACKGROUND Intracavitary brachytherapy (ICBT) is usually applied as boost radiotherapy for superficial residual of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) after primary extern-beam radiptherapy (ERT). Here, we evaluated the outcome of endoscope-guided interstitial intensity-modulated brachytherapy (IMBT) boost radiation for deep-seated residual NPC. (More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of abnormal Savda Munziq (ASMq) total phenolics combined with cisplatin and docetaxel on the Hela cell growth. METHODS In vivo cultured Hela cells were treated with cisplatin, docetaxel, total phenolics, cisplatin+total phenolics or docetaxel+total phenolics. MTT was performed to assess inhibition of cell(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the therapeutic benefit of 3D-image-guided high-dose-rate intracavitary brachytherapy (3D-image-guided HDR-BT) used as a salvage treatment of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in patients with locally persistent nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS Thirty-two patients with locally persistent NPC after full dose of IMRT(More)
Currently, image-based 3-dimentional (3D) planning brachytherapy allows for a better assessment of gross tumor volume (GTV) and the definition and delineation of target volume in cervix cancer. In this study, we investigated the feasibility of our novel computed tomography (CT)-guided free-hand high-dose-rate interstitial brachytherapy (HDRISBT) technique(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE About 20%-40% nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients, who are in the same staging group, receiving the same treatment modality and radiotherapy dose, relapse in the irradiated fields within 5 years. This is mainly due to the differences in internal radiosensitivity. This study was to analyze the proliferation, apoptosis,(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE The dose distribution of brachytherapy is different from that of external radiotherapy. Combining these 2 modalities can enhance the conform degree of dose distribution. This study was to evaluate long-term efficacy of external plus intracavitary irradiation on stage I-II nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS A total of 321(More)
We compared the outcomes and rates of survival provided by surgery alone and surgery combined with postoperative radiotherapy for patients with adenoid cystic carcinoma of the palate (ACP), a rare, low-grade malignant tumor arising within the salivary glands. Fifty-eight patients with ACP were included in this retrospective study. ACP at stages T(1), T(2),(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the results of external beam radiotherapy in combination with 3D- computed tomography (CT)-implanted interstitial high dose rate brachytherapy (ERT/3D-HDR-BT) versus conventional external beam radiotherapy (ERT) for the treatment of stage T2b nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS Forty NPC patients diagnosed with stage T2b NPC were(More)
