PURPOSE Celastrol, a traditional Chinese medicine, is widely used in anti-inflammation and anti-angiogenesis research. However, the poor water solubility of celastrol restricts its further application. This paper aims to study the effect of celastrol nanoparticles (CNPs) on corneal neovascularization (CNV) and determine the possible mechanism. METHODS To(More)
BACKGROUND Celastrol, a Chinese herbal medicine, has shown antitumor activity against various tumor cell lines. However, the effect of celastrol on retinoblastoma has not yet been analyzed. Additionally, the poor water solubility of celastrol restricts further therapeutic applications. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of celastrol(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in the world. Previous report has identified ribosomal protein s15a (RPS15A) as a TGF-β-responsible gene in the lung adenocarcinoma cell line A549. In this study, we used specific si-RNA to downregulate RPS15A expression in A549 cells and found that decreased RPS15A expression significantly inhibited(More)
The present study used event-related potentials (ERPs) to explore the influence of vertical position on power judgments. Participants were asked to identify whether a Chinese word represented a powerful or powerless group (e.g., "king" or "servant"), which was presented in the top or bottom of the screen. The behavioral analysis showed that judging the(More)
Programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) is a key cell-surface receptor of CD28 superfamily that triggers inhibitory pathways to attenuate T-cell responses and promote T-cell tolerance. As a crucial role in tumor immunity, PD-1 has been a focus of studies in anti-cancer therapy. It has been approved that tumors could exploit PD-1-dependent immune suppression for(More)
Patients with advanced soft tissue sarcoma (aSTS) typically have a poor prognosis. Patients progressing to doxorubicin-based regimen have limited therapeutic options. Monotherapy with cytotoxic drugs appears to have only modest activity in the second-line setting. The purpose of this phase II study was to prospectively evaluate the safety and efficacy of(More)
