A reduction in gray matter volume is common in patients with chronic back pain, and different types of pain are associated with gray matter abnormalities in distinct brain regions. To examine differences in brain morphology in patients with low back pain or neck and upper back pain, we investigated changes in gray matter volume in chronic back pain patients(More)
Attention deficits have been repeatedly reported via neuropsychological assessment in previous literature in patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP). However, there are few functional neuroimaging studies of patients with CLBP during attention processing, and the exact underlying neural mechanisms are yet to be elucidated. We used functional magnetic(More)
Outlined herein is a novel and scalable synthesis of (-)-vindorosine based on two key transformations. We have suc-cessfully developed a highly diastereoselective vinylogous Mannich addition of dioxinone-derived lithium dienolates with indolyl N-tert-butanesulfinyl imines. In addition, we introduce an intramolecular cascade Heathcock-aza-Prins cyclization(More)
In this study, the expression of DNA excision repair cross-complementing gene 1 (ERCC1) in local advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma has been correlated with the efficacy of concurrent chemoradiotherapy. A total of 76 patients diagnosed with undifferentiated nasopharyngeal carcinoma diagnosed by nasopharyngeal biopsy and undergoing single-agent cisplatin(More)
