AIM To investigate the clinicopathologic characteristics of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) and Extracellular Matrix Metalloproteinase Inducer (EMMPRIN) expression in osteosarcoma, and to evaluate the clinical significance of these two markers in the survival of osteosarcoma. METHODS VEGF and EMMPRIN expression in paraffin-embedded specimens(More)
BACKGROUND Depression is one of the most common psychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer's disease (AD), occurring in up to 40% of AD patients. It influences the cognitive function of patients and increases the burden on their caregivers. Currently, there are few effective medical treatments for reducing the symptoms of depression in AD patients. Understanding the(More)
As one of the most common mental disorders and the most important precursor of suicide in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), depression is associated with a decline in both well-being and daily functioning. At present, the diagnosis of AD patients with depression (D-AD) is largely dependent on clinical signs and symptoms, and the precise neural correlate underlying(More)
BACKGROUND Depression is a common comorbid psychiatric symptom in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), and the prevalence of depression is higher among people with AD compared with healthy older adults. Comorbid depression in AD may increase the risk of cognitive decline, impair patients' function, and reduce their quality of life. However, the(More)
Depression is common in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and occurs in AD patients with a prevalence of up to 40%. It reduces cognitive function and increases the burden on caregivers. Currently, there are very few medications that are useful for treating depression in AD patients. Therefore, understanding the brain abnormalities in AD patients with depression(More)
Context • Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) indicates that both Alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VD) should be categorized as dementia and that they have a common etiology and pathogenesis under TCM classification of syndromes, such as with kidney essence deficiency syndrome (KEDS). The pathological location is mainly in the brain. However,(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by progressive cognitive decline along with neuropsychiatric symptoms including depression and psychosis. Depression is a common psychiatric disorder occurring in people across the lifespan. Accumulating evidence indicates that depression may be a prodrome and/or a "risk factor" for AD. However, whether AD and(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore brain activity in AD with depression (D-AD) based on fractional amplitude of low-frequency fluctuation (fALFF). METHODS Twenty-two D-AD and 21 AD without depression patients (nD-AD) were examined by magnetic resonance imaging during resting state. Neuropsychiatric Inventory and Hamilton Depression Rating Scale were employed to assess(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia worldwide. Amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) is often the prodromal stage to AD. Most patients with aMCI harbor the pathologic changes of AD and demonstrate transition to AD at a rate of 10%-15% per year. Patients with AD and aMCI experience progressive brain metabolite changes.(More)
