Accumulating studies suggested that microRNAs (miRNAs) can have high diagnostic value as a non-invasive and cost-effective procedure with high sensitivity and specificity in the detection of early-stage lung cancer. However, there is inconsistency observed in the results of relevant studies. Therefore, we performed this meta-analysis to evaluate diagnostic(More)
BACKGROUND Preoperative 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-based chemoradiotherapy is a standard treatment for locally advanced colorectal cancer (CRC). However, CRC cells often develop chemoradiation resistance (CRR). Recent studies have shown that long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) plays critical roles in a myriad of biological processes and human diseases, as well as(More)
A one-year-long monitoring project was conducted to assay the concentrations of THMs, HAAs and their formation potential along the conventional process in a water treatment plant in North China. Subsequent investigations of organic matter fractionation and the contribution of the algae to the precursor were also conducted to trace the source of the DBPs.(More)
Curcumin has a wide spectrum of pharmaceutical properties such as antitumor, antioxidant, antiamyloid, and anti-inflammatory activity. However, poor aqueous solubility and low bioavailability of curcumin are major challenge in its development as a useful drug. To overcome many of these problems, curcumin-loaded long-circulating liposomes (Cur-LCL) were(More)
OBJECTIVE To introduce a new sequential chlorination disinfection process in which short-term free chlorine and chloramine are sequentially added. METHODS Pilot tests of this sequential chlorination were carried out in a drinking water plant. RESULTS The sequential chlorination disinfection process had the same or better efficiency on microbe (including(More)
The traditional technique, preozonation technique, granular activated carbon adsorption technique and ozone-biological activated carbon technique were compared on its removal efficiency of organic matter and the THMs formation potential (THMFP) as well. It was found that, as compared with the former two techniques, the last two were more effective in(More)
INTRODUCTION This study compared treatment outcomes of radiotherapy concurrent with endocrine therapy and radiotherapy sequential with endocrine therapy in breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eligible studies of radiotherapy concurrent and sequential with endocrine therapy in breast cancer were retrieved through extensive searches of the PubMed, Medline,(More)
In a pilot scale system, the formation and removal of BDOC and AOC were compared in the pre-treatment unit, traditional treatment unit and advanced treatment unit. The experimental results indicate that the COD(Mn) removal in a traditional process plus active carbon filter system is 30% and in a traditional process plus ozone and active carbon filter system(More)
To reduce the negative effect of algae on conventional water treatment, a full-scale research of removing algae from algae-laden raw water by stocking filter-feeding silver carp was processed. After the pretreatment in a presedimentation tank with silver carp, the concentration of phytoplankton, the biomass of cyanobacteria and Microsystis flos-aquae in(More)
It is compared that the efficiency of control disinfection by-products and their precursors by sequential-chlorination disinfection and traditional free chlorination disinfection following different processes combination. Compared with traditional chlorination, sequeutial chlorination, i. e. short-term free chlorine plus chloramine disinfection can lower(More)
