BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To investigate the expression dynamics of CD73 and its prognostic significance in human colorectal cancer (CRC). METHODS CD73 expression dynamics were detected by Western blotting. Immunohistochemistry was used to examine the expression of CD73 in CRC tissues from two independent cohorts by tissue microarrays. The optimal(More)
The anti-inflammatory and reparative properties of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) make them a promising tool for treating immune-mediated and inflammatory disorders. However, whether MSCs can be used for treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) still remains unclear. In this study, a dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced mouse colitis model was used to(More)
Crohn’s disease is established in laparoscopic surgery due to partial bowel dissection and low postoperative complication rate. However, laparoscopic surgery for ulcerative colitis remains further discussed even if the trend of minimally invasive technique exists. This study is to figure out how laparoscopic surgery works for ulcerative colitis. Sixteen(More)
Parastomal hernia is a common complication after colostomy construction. Whether an extraperitoneal route for colostomy creation can reduce the risk of parastomal hernia remains controversial. A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the value of extraperitoneal route in the prevention of parastomal hernia and other postoperative complications related to(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS We tested the hypothesis that chronic hepatic virus infection could reduce the occurrence of colorectal cancer liver metastases (CLM) and investigated CLM patients' survival prolonged in positive viral infection. METHODOLOGY 2868 colorectal cancer patients were divided into positive-infection and non-infection groups. Clinical variables,(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the role of neoadjuvant imatinib mesylate (IM) therapy in sphincter-preserving procedures for anorectal gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). METHODS Between January and December of 2007, 3 patients with primary anorectal GIST who declined recommendations to receive abdominoperineal resection of the rectum, were treated with IM at a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the configuration of colic vessels in Chinese and its influence on the operation of esophageal replacement with colon (ERC). METHODS The origin, trend, branching, configuration, and distribution of the colic vessels, the intensity of the colic arterial impulse, the integrity of the marginal artery at the splenic flexure and(More)
PCA (principal components analysis) and ANN (artificial neural network) are two broadly used pattern recognition methods in metabolomics data-mining. Yet their limitations sometimes are great obstacles for researchers. In this paper the wavelet transform (WT) method was used to integrate with PCA and ANN to improve their performance in manipulating(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical safety and efficacy of laparoscopic versus open colorectal resection in octogenarians. Methods Studies comparing laparoscopic colorectal resection with open colorectal resection in octogenarians were identified from the Medline, Embase, Ovid, and Cochrane databases from 1990 to 2012. The methodological quality of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To summarize the short-term outcomes of radical resection of gastric or colorectal carcinoma combined with liver transplantation for gastric or colorectal carcinoma with multiple hepatic metastases. METHODS Radical resection of gastric or colorectal carcinoma combined with liver transplantation were performed on one gastric carcinoma case and(More)
