HCV Core plays a role in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Aberrant expression of NANOG has been observed in many types of human malignancies. However, relationship between Core and NANOG has not been clarified. In this study, we found that Core is capable of up-regulating NANOG expression. Core-induced NANOG expression was accompanied by(More)
BACKGROUND The outcomes of patients with metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) differ between individuals. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) on survival in patients with metastatic NPC. METHODS A total of 229 patients with disseminated NPC were evaluated. The effects of pretreatment peripheral(More)

This paper analyzes the public expenditure flows from the line ministries in Ghana to the basic service provision facilities, including primary and junior secondary schools, and health clinics. The study is mainly based on the data collected from a pilot public expenditure tracking survey (PETS) in 2000. A review of public expenditure distribution systems(More)
Understanding the pathogenic mechanism of pancreatic cancer associated diabetes (PCDM) might help yield biomarkers for the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer (PC) from population with new-onset diabetes. In the current study, we sought to determine the role of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) in PCDM pathogenesis. The protein and mRNA levels(More)
The unified dynamical model of DC-DC buck converter is set up, and then two sliding mode controllers are introduced called conventional sliding mode controller and sliding mode proportional integral derivative (PID) controller. The stability are analyzed for the DC-DC converter system controlled by the sliding mode PID, and the optimum sliding mode PID(More)
Results of the local level institutions (LLI) action-research study give strong evidence that high-performing local level institutions will help reduce poverty and promote equitable development. Moreover, because LLIs depend upon internalized participation rather than any cultural asset of any one country, these institutions can exist across a number of(More)
BACKGROUND Several studies have been conducted in recent years to evaluate the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and polymorphisms of interleukin (IL)-10. However, the results remain conflicting rather than conclusive. This meta-analysis aimed to summarize the current evidence from case-control studies that evaluated this association. METHODS We(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of present study was to profile the glucose-dependent and glutamine- dependent metabolism in pancreatic cancer. METHODS We performed Immunohistochemical staining of GLUT1, CAIX, BNIP3, p62, LC3, GLUD1, and GOT1. Based on the expression of metabolism-related proteins, the metabolic phenotypes of tumors were classified into two(More)
Bovine aortic endothelial cells (BAECs) were cultured with high glucose (33 mmol/L), 4 mg/L green tea polyphenols (GTPs) or 4 mg/L GTPs co-treatment with high glucose for 24 h in the presence or absence of Bafilomycin-A1 (BAF). We observed that high glucose increased the accumulation of LC3-II. Treatment with BAF did not further increase the accumulation of(More)
