Assessment index data missing value added model, fitness comprehensive assessment model and fitness index weight coefficient calculation model are set up based on the basic principles of artificial neural network, taking certain staff of one university in Shanghai as subjects. Precisions of learning samples and verified samples in assessment index data(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of erlotinib as maintenance therapy in patients with unresectable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) by evidence-based methodology. Six eligible studies including 4,372 patients were analyzed. Erlotinib was administered to 2,191 patients as maintenance treatment, while the remaining patients(More)
BCL2L12, a newly identified member of Bcl-2 family, contains a BH2 domain and a putative BH3 domain. It was found to be highly expressed in normal breast tissues, and was associated with favorable prognosis in breast cancer patients. Here, we reported that the mRNA levels of BCL2L12 and its transcript variant BCL2L12A could be upregulated upon cisplatin(More)
OBJECTIVES MicroRNAs are a class of regulatory molecules involved in a wide variety of biological processes, including growth, development, and apoptosis. Given the widespread roles of microRNAs in biological processes, understanding their different expression profiles in normal, adjacent, and tumor tissues will provide insights into the consequences of(More)
Resistance toward imatinib (IM) and other BCR/ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitors remains troublesome in the treatment of advanced stage chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). The aim of this study was to estimate the reversal effects of down-regulation of Na(+)/H(+) exchanger 1 (NHE1) on the chemoresistance of BCR-ABL-positive leukemia patients' cells and cell lines.(More)
Bone is continuously renewed through a dynamic balance between bone resorption and formation and is the fundamental basis for maintaining normal bone mass and architecture by osteoclasts (bone resorption) and osteoblasts (bone formation). Bone resorption is an elementary cellular activity in the modeling of the skeleton during growth and development. Later(More)
BCL2L12, a newly identified member of Bcl-2 family, and its transcript variant BCL2L12A have been found to be associated with favorable prognosis in breast cancer patients while correlated with tumorigenesis of glioblastoma and colon cancer. However, the biological functions of BCL2L12 and especially those of BCL2L12A are largely unknown. Here, we report(More)
Recent studies show that polyethylenimine (PEI) benefits the hydrothermal growth of ZnO nanorod arrays due to its effect on chelating Zn(2+) ions and selectively absorbing on the crystal facets. In the present work, PEI is found to play more complex roles during the growth. The observation on the solution color and the UV-VIS and FTIR spectra demonstrate a(More)
Heme oxygenase-1 was reported previously as a resistance target on acute myelocytic leukemia (AML). We found that HO-1 was resistant to 5-azacytidine (AZA) treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), and explored further the relative mechanisms. Patient bone marrow mononuclear cells (n=48) diagnosed as different levels of MDS were collected. Cell growth(More)
BACKGROUND Tai Chi is a traditional Chinese mind-body exercise that has been widely practiced in the People's Republic of China for many centuries. This exercise has also been applied as a training modality in pulmonary rehabilitation programs for stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to assess(More)
