BACKGROUND & AIMS Aberrant activation of the signal transducer and activator of transcription (Stat)3 and overexpression of polo-like kinase (PLK)1 each have been associated with cancer pathogenesis. The mechanisms and significance of dysregulation of Stat3 and PLK1 in carcinogenesis and cancer progression are unclear. We investigated the relationship(More)
B cell activated co-receptor plays important roles in linkage of innate and acquired humoral immune responses. CD21 molecule in the co-receptor complex is a receptor for C3dg and CD19 molecule enhances BCR signal transduction. CD21 also expresses on the surface of follicular dendritic cells, which mediates the long-term maintenance of antigens and is(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect the expression of phosphorylated-signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (p-Stat3) and myeloid leukemia-1 (Mcl-1) as well as their correlation, and to investigate the functional role of Stat3 and Mcl-1 in the pathogenesis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). METHODS Stat3 activity in ESCC cells was inhibited with(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the hemodynamic changes in patients undergoing pericardiectomy at different operational stages. METHODS Totally 16 consecutive patients receiving radical pericardiectomy were enrolled in this observational study. Hemodynamic variables were monitored continuously by pulse-indicated continuous cardiac output(PiCCO)system. Totally,three(More)
