Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the most important cause of severe, lower respiratory tract infections in infants, and RSV infections have been associated with chronic wheezing and asthma during childhood. However, the mechanism of RSV-induced airway inflammation and airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is poorly understood. Furthermore, there are(More)
UNLABELLED Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the most important cause of lower respiratory tract infection in young children and the leading cause of infant hospitalization worldwide. Uncontrolled response to RSV is mediated by a toll-like receptor (TLR)-mediated immune response. Resveratrol possesses anti-RSV activity and is an inhibitor of the(More)
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is involved in persistent and recurrent wheezing. There are no effective and safe drugs for the sequelae of persistent wheezing after early bronchiolitis. In this study, we investigated the effect of resveratrol on persistent airway inflammation and airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) induced by RSV infection.(More)
Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the leading cause of acute lower respiratory tract infections in infants and children under 5years of age. The novel genotype ON1 has a 72-nucleotide duplication, which is the largest duplicated genome portion of RSV. Whether the ON1 genotype will follow the pattern of the BA genotype, which has a 60-nucleotide(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of naturally occurring, small, non-coding RNAs which play important roles in diverse biological processes and are acting as key regulators of tumorigenesis and chemotherapy resistance. In this study, a downregulation of miR-125b was observed in breast cancer cell lines, suggesting miR-125b is a tumor suppressor in breast(More)
BACKGROUND Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is one of the most frequently observed pathogens during infancy and childhood. However, the corresponding pathogenesis has not been determined to date. We previously demonstrated that IFN-γ plays an important role in RSV pathogenesis, and SARM-TRIF-signaling pathway could regulate the production of IFN-γ. This(More)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of docetaxel plus cyclophosphamide (TC) compared with docetaxel, anthracycline, and cyclophosphamide (TEC) in neoadjuvant treatment of triple negative or HER2 positive breast cancer. Eligible breast cancer patients were randomized to receive six cycles of TC or TEC. The primary end point was(More)
BACKGROUND Human bocavirus is a newly discovered parvovirus. Multiple studies have confirmed the presence of human bocavirus1 (HBoV1) in respiratory tract samples of children. The viral load, presentation of single detection and its role as a causative agent of severe respiratory tract infections have not been thoroughly elucidated. METHODS We(More)
This study aimed to determine whether the protective effects of the Mycobacterium bovis Bacillus Calmette–Guérin (BCG) vaccination on allergic asthma are associated with the T helper (Th) 17/Th1 balance in a murine asthma model. BALB/c neonates were vaccinated with BCG on the first day after birth, sensitized with ovalbumin, and then challenged with(More)
