A novel downy mildew resistance gene, Pl 18 , was introgressed from wild Helianthus argophyllus into cultivated sunflower and genetically mapped to linkage group 2 of the sunflower genome. The new germplasm, HA-DM1, carrying Pl 18 has been released to the public. Sunflower downy mildew (DM) is considered to be the most destructive foliar disease that has(More)
Few studies have examined the genes related to risk fac-tors that may contribute to intracranial aneurysms (IAs). This study in Chinese patients aimed to explore the relationship between IA and 28 gene loci, proven to be associated with risk factors for IA. We recruited 119 patients with aneurysms and 257 controls. Single factor and logistic regression(More)
Growing evidence has shown that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) can serve as prospective markers for survival in patients with colorectal adenocarcinoma. However, most studies have explored a limited number of lncRNAs in a small number of cases. The objective of this study is to identify a panel of lncRNA signature that could evaluate the prognosis in(More)
A possible association of glutathione S-transferase T1 (GSTT1) null/presence gene polymorphism and an increased risk of developing gastric carcinoma is still unclear and hotly debated. This investigation was performed to assess the association of the GSTT1 null/presence gene polymorphism with the risk of gastric carcinoma via a meta-analysis to increase(More)
BACKGROUND Liver hepatocellular carcinoma accounts for the overwhelming majority of primary liver cancers and its belated diagnosis and poor prognosis call for novel biomarkers to be discovered, which, in the era of big data, innovative bioinformatics and computational techniques can prove to be highly helpful in. METHODS Big data aggregated from The(More)
Scholars are striving to apply molecular biology involving long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) in the prognostication of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). However, the clinical role of lncRNAs in the prognostic setting of PTC is still unclear. Herein, a comprehensive inquiry was performed to screen lncRNA expression profiling with 507 PTC patients from The Cancer(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the feasibility and the effect of laparoscopic hepatectomy for primary liver cancer(PLC). METHODS A retrospective study on 61 cases of laparoscopic hepatectomy for PLC was made between November 2002 and June 2007, among which there were 49 male and 12 female, aged from 14 to 71 years. All patients were diagnosed as PLC by type-B(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and practicality of laparoscopic hepatectomy for hepatic hemangioma. METHODS Candidate for laparoscopic liver resection were 18 cases of hepatic hemangioma from January 2002 to October 2006. The portal bloods stream was blocked by the laparoscope portal blood blocker. The Electric-cautery and ultracision were used for(More)
Immunologic mechanism of tumor escaping from complements' attack was unclear in the past. The efficacy of immunotherapy, especially humoral immunotherapy, to tumor is unsatisfactory. At present, with the progression in immunology, various tumors were found to highly express one or several kinds of complement regulatory proteins, such as CD46/MCP, CD55/DAF,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical effect of fast-track surgery combined with Chinese medicine treatment in devascularization operation for cirrhotic esophageal varices. METHODS Seventy-two patients with cirrhotic esophageal varices were selected from January 2009 to June 2013, and randomly assigned to a conventional group and a fast-track group(More)
