BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE By 2010 there had been 14 published trials of surgery for intracerebral hemorrhage reported in systematic reviews or to the authors, but the role and timing of operative intervention remain controversial and the practice continues to be haphazard. This study attempted to obtain individual patient data from each of the 13 studies(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the role of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK)1/2 during focal cerebral ischemia. METHODS Left middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) was undergone after the introduction of a nylon suture to the left internal carotid artery in 70 male adult CD-1 mice. ERK 1/2 phosphorylation was detected using Western blot analysis, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinicopathological characteristics, prognosis, pathology, and differential diagnosis of LPM by analyzing our experience and reviewed relevant literature. We also postulated the necessity of postoperative adjuvant therapy. METHODS 19 patients with LPM underwent surgical treatment from 2007 through 2010 in our department. The(More)
In this study, we investigated the association between common variants in the matrix metalloproteinase-3 (MMP-3) gene and the risk of developing sporadic brain arteriovenous malformation (BAVM). We performed genotyping analyses for five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in MMP-3 in a case-control study involving 319 Chinese patients with BAVM and 333(More)
The study was designed to investigate the effects of ischemic preconditioning (IP) on permeability of blood-brain barrier (BBB) and expression of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) in subsequent ischemic hemisphere. Rats were divided into four groups, one group was used as control, and the other three groups were given three different pretreatments: the(More)
OBJECTIVE Metaplastic meningioma is a rare subtype of benign meningiomas, classified as WHO grade I with well prognosis. Here we presented our experiences on 15 cases of metaplastic meningioma, to investigate the clinicopathological features, therapies and prognosis of these cases. METHODS 15 patients underwent surgical treatment for intracranial(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND To test the expression level of CD40 on ovarian cancer tissues and its correlation to clinicopathological features of patients and to evaluate the therapeutic effectiveness of adenovirus-mediated CD40 ligand on ovarian cancer in vitro. MATERIAL AND METHODS The expression of CD40 on paraffin-embedded ovarian cancer tissues (n=58) and(More)
Secretory meningioma (SM) is a rare, benign subtype of meningioma. Between January 2005 and December 2010, 70 SMs were operated on at the Department of Neurosurgery, Huashan Hospital, Fudan University. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data, radiological and immunohistochemical findings, and patient outcome to discuss the specific features of SMs.(More)
The poor prognosis for patients with advanced malignancy relates partly to the inability to reverse cancer metastasis. In this study we have investigated an integrated immunotherapy method against pre-established metastases in three kinds of advanced cancer models including B16 melanoma, 4T1 breast tumor, and Hca hepatoma. The progression of metastases into(More)
