Based on World Health Organization (WHO)'s definition of Quality of Life (QOL) and programmed decision procedures, we developed a general module of the System of Quality of Life Instruments for Cancer Patients (QLICP-GM) utilizing focus group discussions, pilot tests of 448 cases and field tests of 600 cases of 5 different cancer patients. The number of(More)
Increasing evidence has demonstrated that glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), a key metabolic enzyme, participating in pentose phosphate pathway (PPP), is tightly associated with development and progression of a variety of tumors. Here, we reported expression of G6PD and its association with the prognosis of the patients with esophageal squamous cell(More)
There is growing evidence that glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) is tightly associated with development and progression of many human tumors. However, its precise molecular mechanisms in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remain unknown. In the current study, we found that G6PD messenger RNA (mRNA) and protein levels in ESCC cell lines(More)
A practical flapping wing micro air vehicle should have ability to withstand stochastic deviations of flight velocities. To design a flapping airfoil with this ability, it is necessary to evaluate the impacts of velocity deviations on the flapping performances numerically or analytically. In this paper, the responses of the time-averaged thrust coefficient(More)
Mounting evidence has demonstrated that Bit1 has been investigated as an etiological factor for certain cancers, including esophageal squamous cell carcinoma reported in our previous study, but data regarding possible roles of Bit1 in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and esophageal adenocarcinoma remain to be elucidated. The purpose of this study was to(More)
There is growing evidence that Bit1 exerts different roles in the development and progression of human cancers. Although Bit1 was highly exhibited in ESCC tissues in our previous study, its roles and molecular mechanisms implicated in development and progression of ESCC remain unknown. Bit1 protein expression in ESCC cell lines and normal esophageal(More)
