AIM The effect of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) therapy on hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with prior resolved hepatitis B is not fully understood. METHODS From January 2006 to December 2010, 43 hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-negative/anti-hepatitis B core antigen (HBc) positive(More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic significance of the circulating absolute monocyte count (AMC) in patients with locally advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is uncertain. This study was designed to assess the association of circulating AMC with survival outcomes in patients diagnosed with locally advanced or metastatic HCC receiving systemic chemotherapy. (More)
BACKGROUND Neuroimaging studies have found that functional changes exist in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the majority of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies in patients with PD are task-related and cross-sectional. This study investigated the functional changes observed in patients with PD, at both baseline and after 2(More)
AIM To identify the main metabolites of hydrochloride 4-methyl-piperazine-1-carbodithioc acid 3-cyano-3,3-diphenyl-propyl ester (TM208) in rats. METHODS Rat feces, urine and plasma samples were collected after ig 500 mg x kg(-1) TM208, then the samples were extracted and concentrated using ethyl acetate. The treated samples were analyzed by(More)
Defects or deficiencies in red cell membrane skeletal proteins often undermine the integrity and stability of the plasma membrane, and consequently cause hereditary hemolytic anemias. Genetic and biochemical studies have revealed a complicated picture of the organization of the membrane skeleton, within which α-/β-spectrin heterodimers form a protein(More)
By virtue of FE-SEM and EDXA marked by Br element, the relationship between the lignin distribution and growth stress was micro-analyzed by normal wood of plantation Eucalyptus urophylla X E. grandis with different growth stress levels. The results indicated that the lignin contents of different cell wall layers were not related to the growth stress level,(More)
OBJECTIVE To prepare and identify the monoclonal antibody (mAb) against pyruvate kinase N terminal (PK-N). METHODS BALB/C mice were immunized with immunogen PK-N-GST-tag. Then the spleen cells were isolated and fused with SP2/0 cells. After several rounds of detecting and cloning, the hybridoma cell strains secreting anti-PK-N mAb were obtained. Its(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the change in dendritic cells (DCs) in children with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (cITP) and the effect of glucocorticoid on DCs in children with cITP. METHODS Fifteen children with cITP and 20 healthy controls were included in the study. Flow cytometry was used to measure the DC subsets count in the 15 children with cITP(More)
