AIM To assess the benefits and limits of surgery for primary hepatic lymphoma (PHL), and probability of survival after postoperative chemotherapy. METHODS A retrospective analysis was undertaken to determine the results of surgical treatment of PHL over the past 8 years. Only nine patients underwent such treatment. The detailed data of diagnosis,(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the occupational stress and work ability in doctors, police-officers and teachers. METHODS Changes in occupational stress work ability were measured with revised occupational stress inventory (OSI-R) and work ability index (WAI) for 288 doctors, 191 police-officers and 343 teachers, and then comparative and correlation analyses were(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the mechanisms of the effects of Runing Recipe in anti-invasion and anti-recurrence of breast cancer by experimental research in vitro. METHODS SD female rats were randomly divided into Runing Recipe-treated group and its decomposed formulas Kidney-Warming Recipe and Liver-Soothing Recipe-treated groups, tamoxifen (TAM) -treated(More)
Previous studies have shown that miR-203 acts as a tumor-suppressive microRNA in various cancers, but its roles in laryngeal carcinoma are still contradicted. Here, we found that miR-203 inhibited the growth of laryngeal cancer cells and survivin was a direct target of miR-203. Moreover, silencing of survivin recapitulated the effect of miR-203 on cell(More)
BACKGROUND It has been shown that distal cerebrospinal fluid-contacting neurons (dCSF-CNs) exist near the ventral midline of the midbrain aqueduct and also in the grey matter of the inferior third ventricle and the fourth ventricle floor in the superior segment of the pons. The dCSF-CNs communicate between the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the brain(More)
BACKGROUND Subclinical thyroid dysfunction may be a risk factor for mortality in patients with heart failure and may be associated with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). This was a cohort study to examine the possible association between subclinical thyroid dysfunction and all-cause mortality in DCM patients, because the current evidence on this association(More)
The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is a ligand activated transcription factor implicated in multiple cellular processes and its expression has been shown to play a critical role in tumorigenesis. However, the role of AhR in tumorigenesis of breast cancer remains unclear. In the current study, we investigated the expression levels of AhR in breast lesions(More)
BACKGROUND Intrahepatic recurrence is a significant problem for patients who have undergone a hepatic resection for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The objective of the present study was to identify risk factors and evaluate the management of early and late recurrence of solitary HCC after curative resection. METHODS Included in this study were 816(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of adiposity on response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and long-term outcome in patients undergoing CRT has not been previously reported. This study assessed the impact of baseline body mass index (BMI) on cardiac reverse remodeling and prognosis following CRT. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 247 CRT patients were included(More)
Preoperative jaundice is frequent in gallbladder cancer (GBC) and indicates advanced disease. Resection is rarely recommended to treat advanced GBC. An aggressive surgical approach for advanced GBC remains lacking because of the association of this disease with serious postoperative complications and poor prognosis. This study aims to re-assess the(More)
