Integrins have a critical role in thrombosis and haemostasis. Antagonists of the platelet integrin αIIbβ3 are potent anti-thrombotic drugs, but also have the life-threatening adverse effect of causing bleeding. It is therefore desirable to develop new antagonists that do not cause bleeding. Integrins transmit signals bidirectionally. Inside-out signalling(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate whether the activity of inducing immune response of glycyrrhetinic acid (GA) could be enhanced after GA was encapsulated with liposome. Three hundred and fifty 14-day-old chickens were randomly assigned to 7 groups and vaccinated with Newcastle disease (ND) vaccine. Simultaneously, the chickens in experimental groups(More)
The adjuvant activity of gypenosides liposome (GPSL) encapsulated with liposome was investigated in vitro and in vivo. In vitro, different concentrations of GPSL were added into chicken's peripheral blood lymphocytes and splenic lymphocyte. The results showed that GPSL could significantly enhance T and B lymphocytes proliferation singly or synergistically(More)
We describe here a novel mutation in glycoprotein (GP) IX transmembrane region in a patient with Bernard-Soulier syndrome (BSS). Flow cytometric analysis of the patient's platelets showed that GP Iband GP IX were expressed at decreased levels. Sequence analysis of the gene coding for GP IX revealed a homozygous (G to A) transition at nucleotide 2113,(More)
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) are different disease states, while ADAMTS13 deficiency could occur in sepsis-induced DIC. We report 2 patients who had septic DIC with features of idiopathic TTP characterized by low ADAMTS13 activity and positive ADAMTS13 inhibitor. They had a specific fulminant(More)
The preparation conditions of epimedium polysaccharide-propolis flavone liposome (EPL) were optimized by response surface methodology taking entrapment rates of epimedium polysaccharide and propolis flavone as indexes. The immunoenhancement of EPL prepared with optimized condition was determined taking epimedium polysaccharide-propolis flavone suspension(More)
Base excision repair (BER) pathway plays critical role in maintaining genome integrity. Polymorphisms in BER genes which modulate the DNA repair capacity may affect the susceptibility and prognosis of cancer. We conducted a case-control study and followed up the cases to explore the associations between BER genes polymorphisms and the risk and prognosis of(More)
Research on hMLH1 and hMSH2 mutations tend to focus on Lynch syndrome (LS) and LS-like colorectal cancer (CRC). No studies to date have assessed the role of hMLH1 and hMSH2 genes in mass sporadic CRC (without preselection by MSI or early age of onset). We aimed to identify novel hMLH1 and hMSH2 DNA variants, to determine the mutation frequencies and sites(More)
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have attracted much attention as antimicrobial agents and have demonstrated efficient inhibitory activity against various viruses, including human immunodeficiency virus, hepatitis B virus, and Tacaribe virus. In this study, we investigated if AgNPs could have antiviral and preventive effects in A/Human/Hubei/3/2005 (H3N2)(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), 12-lipoxygenase (12-LOX) and phospholipaseA2 (PLA2) played important roles in the modulation of apoptosis, angiogenesis, carcinogenesis and invasion of colorectal cancer (CRC). The polymorphisms in COX-2, 12-LOX and PLA2 may affect their roles. Therefore, we investigated if COX-2 −1195G > A, 12-LOX 261Arg > Gln and PLA2 c.349 +(More)
