The antidepressant-like effect of trans-resveratrol, a phenolic compound present in polygonum cuspidatum, was evaluated through behavioral and neurochemical methods. trans-Resveratrol (20, 40 and 80 mg/kg, via gavage) significantly decreased the immobility time in mouse models of despair tests, but did not influence locomotor activity. Two behavioral models(More)
Macrophage infiltration contributes to the pathogenesis of diabetic renal injury. However, the regulatory mechanisms between macrophage infiltration and epithelial cell activation are still unclear. Our previous study found that C66, a novel curcumin analog, was able to inhibit inflammatory cytokine expression in vitro and in vivo. This study further(More)
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy among men. The Discovery of new agents for the treatment of prostate cancer is urgently needed. Compound WZ35, a novel analog of the natural product curcumin, exhibited good anti-prostate cancer activity, with an IC50 of 2.2 μM in PC-3 cells. However, the underlying mechanism of WZ35 against prostate(More)
OBJECTIVE Animals underwent combined general-epidural anesthesia (EGA) is reported to have better long-time outcome than general anesthesia (GA). This study aimed to make overall evaluation of the association between these two anesthetic techniques and prognosis of cancer patients undergoing surgery. METHODS Related databases such as PubMed and EMbase(More)
The β-subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin (β-hCG) is ectopically expressed in various types of cancer and has been utilized as an antigenic target in anti-cancer vaccines. In view of the low immunogenicity of this self-peptide, we designed a method based on the isocaudamer technique to generate 14 tandem repeats of the 10-residue sequence X of β-hCG(More)
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) in patients with surgically altered anatomy is challenging. Results of ERCP in those patients varied.The aim of our study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of various endoscopes-assisted ERCP in patients with surgically altered anatomy.Fifty-two patients with Billroth II reconstruction (group(More)
Emerging evidences have shown that decorin expression is significantly reduced in many cancer tissues and cancer cells. However, its biological role and clinical significance in cholangiocarcinoma development and progression are unknown. In this study, immunohistochemistry was conducted to investigate the expression of decorin in cholangiocarcinomas. The(More)
2-Mercaptoethanol self-assembled monolayer (ME/Au SAMs) was prepared on a gold electrode. The ME/Au SAMs was characterized by using ATR-FTIR and dynamic contact angle measurements. The electrochemical behaviors of noradrenaline (NE) on the ME/Au SAMs were studied in BR buffer solution. The modified electrode accelerated electron transfer rate of the redox(More)
