MiR-211 has strong inhibitive effects on melanoma cell growth, invasion and metastasis. However, how it is downregulated and whether other genes are involved its downstream regulation in melanoma are not clear. In this study, we firstly verified the expression of miR-211 in melanoma cell lines and observed that its downregulation is associated with(More)
Dysregulation of miR-183 has been recently elucidated in several carcinomas. However, the expression patterns and mechanisms of miR-183 involved in malignant melanoma remain unidentified. Here, we found down-regulation of miR-183 in melanoma tissues and cells. Decreased level of miR-183 was relevant to poor overall survival, while miR-183 up-regulation(More)
Percutaneous radiofrequency thermocoagulation of the trigeminal ganglion through the foramen ovale is a well-established procedure for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia (TN). However, this approach can be tricky when individual trigeminal sub-branch nerve block is required. We report our initial experience of image-guided radiofrequency(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of intermittent irrigation of insulin solution combined with continuous drainage of vacuum sealing drainage (VSD) in chronic diabetic lower limb ulcers. METHODS Between January 2012 and December 2014, 45 patients with diabetic lower limb ulcer were treated with VSD (group A, n=15), with VSD combining irrigation of(More)
We evaluated whether degrees of dysplasia may be consistently accessed in an automatic fashion, using different kinds of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) as a validatory model. Namely, we compared Bowen disease, actinic keratosis, basal cell carcinoma, low-grade squamous cell carcinoma, and invasive squamous cell carcinoma. We hypothesized that(More)
