Exposure to ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5) increases risks for cardiovascular disorders (CVD). However, the mechanisms and components responsible for the effects are poorly understood. Based on our previous murine exposure studies, a translational pilot study was conducted in female residents of Jinchang and Zhangye, China, to test the hypothesis(More)
BACKGROUND The androgen receptor (AR) expression and the CAG repeat length within the AR gene appear to be involved in the carcinogenesis of male breast carcinoma (MBC). Although phenotypic differences have been observed between MBC and normal control group in AR gene, there is lack of correlation analysis between AR expression and CAG repeat length in MBC.(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclophosphamide is a potent anticancer drug, but its clinical utility is limited because of its severe side effects, in particular liver damage. Chalone 19-peptide induces apoptosis of tumor cells and inhibits tumor growth. The present study investigated the antitumor effects of a combination of cyclophosphamide and Chalone 19-peptide in(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES We sought to initially evaluate the feasibility of R2' on a 3-T magnetic resonance (MR) scanner for assessment of renal oxygenation changes following administration of furosemide in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eight intact male Wistar rats were involved in experimental group. The experiment was performed at a 3-T MR scanner using(More)
