Prompt detection of drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis is essential for effective control of tuberculosis (TB). We developed a Multi-PCR-SSCP method that detects more than 80% commonly observed isoniazid (INH) and rifampin (RIF) resistance M. tuberculosis in a single assay. The usefulness of the newly developed method was evaluated with 116(More)
Mechanical strain plays an important role in bone formation and resorption during orthodontic tooth movement. The mechanism has not been fully studied, and the process becomes complex with increased amounts of periodontal patients seeking orthodontic care. Our aims were to elucidate the combined effects of proinflammatory cytokines and intermittent cyclic(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are associated with the development, progression, and prognosis of human cancers. However, the clinical significance and biological function of lncRNAs in hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (HSCC) remain largely unknown. We characterized the novel lncRNA AB209630 in vivo and in vitro. First, using qRT-PCR, we evaluated(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the protection of parathyroid glands in bilateral papillary thyroid cancer patients who underwent total thyroidectomy and bilateral central compartment dissection. METHODS The clinical data of 78 patients undergoing total thyroidectomy and bilateral central compartment dissection between May 2013 and May 2014 were analyzed(More)
Hierarchically porous diatomite/MFI-type zeolite (Dt/Z) composites with excellent benzene adsorption performance were prepared. The hierarchical porosity was generated from the microporous zeolite coated at the surface of diatom frustules and from the macroporous diatomite support. A facile NaOH etching method was employed for the first time to treat the(More)
As a novel type of lymphatic tracer, carbon nanoparticles (CNs) were reported not to stain parathyroid glands (PGs) into black, so it may have a clinical potential in protection of PGs during thyroidectomy. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical application and significance of CN in protection of PGs from surrounding tissues.A total of 82(More)
The structural incorporation of aluminium (Al) into diatomite is investigated by preparing several Al-diatomite composites by loading an Al precursor, hydroxyl aluminum polymer (Al13), onto the surface of diatomite and heating at various temperatures. The results indicate that Al was incorporated and implanted into the structure of diatomite by the(More)
FAS/FASL promoter variants are considered in altering transcriptional activity of those genes and consequently alter regulation of cell death. However, no studies have investigated whether tumor sites contribute to the association between FAS/FASL polymorphisms and risk for second primary malignancy (SPM). In this study, FAS670 A > G, FAS1377 G > A, FASL124(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the use and clinical utility of carbon nanoparticles as a lymph node tracer in the central neck lymph node dissection of patients with papillary thyroid cancer. METHODS One hundred forty consecutive patients were divided into a carbon nanoparticle group (n = 70) and a control group (n = 70). All(More)
In this study, KOH activation was performed to enhance the porosity of the diatomite-templated carbon and to increase its adsorption capacity of methylene blue (MB). In addition to serving as the activation agent, KOH was also used as the etchant to remove the diatomite templates. Zeolite K-H was synthesized as a byproduct via utilization of the resultant(More)
