The differential diagnosis of Parkinson's diseases (PD) is challenging, especially in the early stages of the disease. We developed a microRNA profiling strategy for exosomal miRNAs isolated from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in PD and AD. Sixteen exosomal miRNAs were up regulated and 11 miRNAs were under regulated significantly in PD CSF when compared with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the menstrual, fertility and recurrent results of conservative surgery for women with recurrent borderline ovarian tumors. METHODS Six patients with recurrent borderline ovarian tumors who had conservative surgery from 2000 to 2006 were identified from the Women's hospital, Zhejiang University database. The six patients (median age,(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify important prognostic factors and optimized treatment strategies through the analysis of the clinical and pathological characteristics of placental site trophoblastic tumor. METHODS 108 patients with PSTT registered in two GTD centers or in six tertiary hospitals in China were analyzed retrospectively between the years 1998 and 2013.(More)
BACKGROUND Although endoscopic plastic biliary stenting is a clinical procedure routinely carried out in patients with common bile duct stones, the effects of stenting on the sizes or fragmentation of large common bile duct stones have not been formally established and the mechanism of this condition is controversial. We compared the stone sizes of common(More)
This study determined interleukin-10 (IL-10) expression in patients with ovarian carcinoma and in ovarian carcinoma cell lines, and investigated its clinical significance in the development and progression of ovarian carcinoma. Expression of IL-10 in ovarian carcinoma, benign ovarian tumour, normal control tissues and ovarian carcinoma cell lines was(More)
Methane biogas production through anaerobic digestion (or biomethanation) is one of the few technologies that both produce bioenergy and protect the environment. When the focus of anaerobic digestion (AD) is shifted from primarily wastewater treatment to bioenergy production, efficiency and process stability become critical to the economic viability of AD(More)
Clinical information regarding 3 patients diagnosed with acute thallium poisoning was collected and retrospectively analyzed. All 3 patients presented with severe burning pain in the lower limbs and the abdomen. Diffuse alopecia, hepatic dysfunction and Mees' lines in the digits of each limb were observed between 2 and 3 weeks after onset. A physical(More)
We examined the antiproliferation effect of Jaceosidin (4', 5, 7-trihydroxy-3', 6-dimethoxyflavone) isolated from the herb of Artemisia vestita Wall on several human cancer cell lines. Jaceosidin significantly reduced the proliferation of CAOV-3, SKOV-3, HeLa, and PC3 cells in a concentration-dependent manner. A time-dependent inhibition was also observed(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical data of laparoscopic repair with hysteroscopy of cesarean scar diverticulum (CSD). METHODS We retrospectively evaluated 49 patients with CSD in our hospital who had undergone laparoscopic repair with hysteroscopy from January 2014 to June 2015. All patients had a history of cesarean section(More)
AIMS To isolate, identify and characterize new thermophilic cellulolytic bacterial strains from a compost sample. METHODS AND RESULTS Two thermophilic and cellulolytic bacterial strains were isolated via enrichment on cellulose (milled filter paper) and characterized. Both strains, CS7 and CS8, were rod-shaped, Gram-positive and spore-forming bacteria,(More)
