Array-based comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) is a new technique for detecting submicroscopic deletions and duplications, and can overcome many of the limitations associated with classic cytogenetic analysis. However, its clinical use in spontaneous abortion needs comprehensive evaluation. We used aCGH to investigate chromosomal imbalances in 100(More)
UNLABELLED Excessive inflammation contributes to the severity of post influenza pneumonia caused by methicillin resistant S.aureus (MRSA). Linezolid, vancomycin, and clindamycin are antibiotics used for MRSA infections. Linezolid has immunomodulatory properties. We report on the effects of the three antibiotics on microbial clearance, pulmonary cytokines(More)

In this study, the authors examine the effects of C2C online store characteristics on customer satisfaction. Drawing on the equity theory, they investigate the way retailer reputation and price impact the relationship between customers' perceptions of justice and the satisfaction towards service recovery. To test the study hypotheses, two 2×2×2(More)
In this study, Cellulose-based carbon fibers (CBCFs) were prepared from cellulose after phenol liquefaction and curing. The characteristics and properties of CBCFs were examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The(More)
MiRNAs have been focused for their wide range of biological regulatory functions. Previous studies have suggested that individual miRNAs could influence tumorigenesis through their regulation of specific proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. This study was implemented to investigate the associations between SNPs in mature microRNAs (miRNAs) and(More)
