To replicating the associations of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and six novel reported variants in Han Chinese lean individuals of first episode T2D, a total of six high risk single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from the BCL11A, DUSP9, IRS1, CENTD2, ADRA2A, and CDKAL1 genes were examined. Candidate six SNPs were genotyped in 761 T2D patients and 433 control(More)
The Kinect-based virtual reality system for the Xbox 360 enables users to control and interact with the game console without the need to touch a game controller, and provides rehabilitation training for stroke patients with lower limb dysfunctions. However, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. In this study, 18 healthy subjects and five patients after(More)
AIM It was aimed to monitor early treatment response of Sunitinib in U87MG models mimicking glioblastoma multiforme by longitudinal (18)F-FLT microPET/CT imaging in this study. METHODS U87MG tumor mice were intragastrically injected with Sunitinib at a dose of 80 mg/kg for consecutive 7 days. (18)F-FLT microPET/CT scans were acquired on days 0, 1, 3, 7,(More)
Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor-2A/B (CDKN2A/B) has been reported as a candidate gene of type 2 diabetes (T2D) based on its chromosomal position and its important role in β-cell function and regeneration. However, studies to date have reported inconsistent findings regarding the association between T2D and CDKN2A/B. To clarify this inconsistence, we(More)
The aim of this prospective study was to assess the ability of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scanning to predict pathological complete response (pCR) in breast cancer, and to investigate whether timing of the scan and trastuzumab treatment influence the accuracy of pCR prediction in human(More)
Previous studies have reported that the radiosensitivity is associated with apoptosis. Hereby, we aimed to investigate the value of 18F-ML-10 PET/CT, which selectively targeted cells undergoing apoptosis, in predicting radiosensitivity of human nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) xenografts. We used CNE1 (highly differentiated) and CNE2 (poorly differentiated)(More)
In the last few decades use of metal-based nanoparticles (MNPs) has been increased significantly that eventually contaminating agricultural land and limiting crop production worldwide. Moreover, contamination of food chain with MNPs has appeared as a matter of public concern due to risk of potential health hazard. Brassinosteroid has been shown to play a(More)
Objective: Antiangiogenesis therapy (AAT) has provided substantial benefits regarding improved outcomes and survival for suitable patients in clinical settings. Therefore, the early definition of therapeutic effects is urgently needed to guide cancer AAT. We aimed to optimize the early response monitoring and prediction of AAT efficacy, as indicated by the(More)
