Aneurysms of the basilar perforating arteries are uncommon and those of the circumferential artery are particularly rare. Microsurgical clipping or trapping is the preferred treatment as these aneurysms are usually not accessible for endovascular treatment. We report two patients with ruptured aneurysms arising from the basilar circumferential artery. The(More)
This study was to investigate the cytotoxic effects on pituitary adenoma cell lines GH3/MMQ/AtT20 induced by RGD-FasL and the underlying mechanism. Fas/DcR3 mRNAs were detected by RT-PCR and their surface expressions were measured by flow cytometry. Cytotoxicity exerted by RGD-FasL on tumor cells was measured with MTT assay and the induced apoptosis was(More)
Here we investigate the potential use of ALOS PALSAR L-band dual and quad polarization SAR data for improved forest structure mapping and parameter estimation. Several scenes of level 1.1 SLC data have been acquired under the DRAGON project in 2007 for the Tai-An test site of Shandong Province, P.R. China. The preliminary results for the first phase of this(More)
A prospective study was underway to evaluate the outcome of eyebrow keyhole approach for ruptured anterior circulation aneurysms on early stage. In the past 4 years, 88 patients with ruptured anterior circulation aneurysms, were operated on early stage by an experienced neurosurgical team through eyebrow craniotomy. The clinical data were analyzed. Patients(More)
Ten patients complaining of visual impairment, proptosis or ocular pain, were selected for transnasal transsphenoid microsurgical approach to address cavernous haemangiomas located at inferomedial part of orbital apex. Via this approach, the contents of orbital apex were clearly illuminated and exposed as large as the surgical removal required. All tumours(More)
For the operational application of multi-temporal ENVISAT ASAR APS data to rice mapping, a complex Wishart distribution based multi-temporal classifier was evaluated in this paper. The classification accuracy of this classifier was quantitatively compared with commonly used classifiers for optical remote sensing image classification including maximum(More)
BACKGROUND MiRNAs are involved in aberrant DNA methylation through regulation of DNA methyltransferases (DNMTs) in the pathogenesis and progression of glioblastomas (GBM). MiR-152-3p was down-expressed in human malignancies, and served as a tumor suppressor. Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) was significantly decreased in GBM tissues with a high level of(More)
Gelatin-siloxane nanoparticles (GS NPs) have been considered to be good gene carrier candidate in vitro, since they have several advantages such as low toxicity, easy preparation and surface modification. In this study, the Tat-PEG-GS NPs were synthesized by the gelatin-siloxane, surface-modified with the polyethylene glycol (H2 N-PEG-COOH) and Tat peptide(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the expression and regulation of angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) in murine ovaries during sexual maturation, gonadotropin treatment and luteal development by in situ hybridization and RT-PCR. By in situ hybridization Ang-2 mRNA was mainly localized in granulosa cells, thecal cells and corpus luteum, otherwise in oocytes.(More)
