It has been hypothesized that cancer stem cell is responsible for the refractoriness of glioblastoma therapy. This study is to observe the influence of Etoposide on anti-apoptotic and multidrug resistance-associated protein genes in glioblastoma stem-like cells. U251 glioblastoma cells were cultured and CD133 positive cancer stem-like cells were isolated(More)
Brain metastases (BM) from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are extremely rare and are associated with a poor prognosis. The aim of this study was to define clinical outcome and prognostic determinants in patients with BM from HCC. Between January 1994 and December 2009, all patients with HCC and BM treated in Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center were(More)
Deranged metabolic profiles and insulin resistance (IR) have been documented in patients with prolactinomas. Few data are yet available on the apolipoprotein (apo) B/apoA-I ratio and its relationship with IR in patients with prolactinomas. This study was aimed to evaluate the level of apoB/apoA-I ratio and its association with IR in a Chinese subgroup with(More)
Both intraparenchymal papillary meningioma and papillary meningioma with cyst formation of brainstem have never been reported. The authors present an extremely rare case of patient with intraparenchymal papillary meningioma of brainstem. A 23-year-old Chinese male presented with a 4-month history of progressive left upper limb and facial nerve palsy.(More)
OBJECTIVE Carotid intraplaque hemorrhage may result in rapid worsening of stenosis and thrombus formation leading to stroke in patients with carotid atherosclerosis. The purpose of this study was to assess the association of the lesional expression of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 with carotid plaque and intraplaque hemorrhage in a swine model. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Liquid embolic agents can achieve penetration of capillaries in tumors and thus may be even more effective at creating tumor necrosis than small particles. This study assesses the safety and efficacy of preoperative embolization of meningiomas with Onyx liquid embolic agent (Micro Therapeutics, Inc, Irvine, Calif) for delayed surgical resection.(More)
Many metabolites with novel structures and biological activities have been isolated from the mangrove fungi in the South China Sea, such as anthracenediones, xyloketals, sesquiterpenoids, chromones, lactones, coumarins and isocoumarin derivatives, xanthones, and peroxides. Some compounds have anticancer, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties,(More)
This study tried to use CD133 positive U251 glioblastoma stem cells to establish nude mice model of transplanted tumor. CD133 positive U251 stem cells were isolated and identified. Twenty-five male nude mice were divided into three groups: U251 cell group, U251 stem cell group and normal control group. U251 cells and stem cells were respectively inoculated(More)
BACKGROUND A swine model of carotid atherosclerosis may greatly facilitate the identification of imaging characteristics of vulnerable plaques and the preclinical evaluation of endovascular intervention. In this study we assess the association of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 expression and neovascularity in carotid atherosclerotic plaques with MRI(More)
Preoperative prognostic nutritional index (PNI) has been widely demonstrated to predict survival of patients with malignant tumors. Its utility in predicting outcomes in patients with high-grade gliomas (HGG) remains undefined. A retrospective study of 188 HGG patients was conducted. An optimal PNI cut-off value was applied to stratify patients into high(More)
