Nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma is a rare type of lymphoma in Caucasian individuals, but is relatively common in Asian populations. Genetic variants in immune and inflammatory response genes may thus be associated with the risk of developing lymphoma. Here, we investigated the association between immuno-modulatory gene polymorphisms and risk for nasal NK/T-cell(More)
Lung cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death in China, with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) comprises the most common form. Co-inhibitory molecules, such as cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA-4), programmed death 1 (PD-1) and its ligand PD-L1, play a key roles in the physiopathological process of tumorigenesis. To investigate(More)
Interleukin 17 (IL-17), also known as IL-17A, is a proinflammatory cytokine and plays critical roles in tumor immunity. Nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancers. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between IL-17A genetic polymorphisms and susceptibility to NSCLC. Two single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
This paper presents an innovative locomotion concept for rough terrain based on six motorized rimless wheels. Different from traditional wheels, the rimless wheels can not only provide more traction on uneven earth's surface, but also have advanced adaptation to the complex terrain. In order to make the robot move stably and efficiently, the design proposes(More)
Chronic cigarette smoking increases the risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC) and causes higher mortality of CRC patients. To improve our understanding of the underlying mechanism and devise treatment strategies specifically targeted at chronic smoking CRC patients, we examined the immune system of healthy and CRC patients who are complete nonsmokers(More)
