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)
PURPOSE FGFR gene aberrations are associated with tumor growth and survival. We explored the role of FGFR2 amplification in gastric cancer and the therapeutic potential of AZD4547, a potent and selective ATP-competitive receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor of fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR)1-3, in patients with FGFR2-amplified gastric cancer.

Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for diagnosis of bovine tuberculosis has been widely explored over the years. Three Mycobacterium bovis-specific antigen genes, namely, mpb70, mpb83, and esat-6 were recombined in tandem by spliced overlap extension technology and expressed in Escherichia coli to obtain the fusion protein (rM70-83-E6). Western blot(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)
Brain metastasis (BM) is increasingly diagnosed in Her2 positive breast cancer (BC) patients. Lack of effective treatment to breast cancer brain metastases (BCBMs) is probably due to inability of the current therapeutic agents to cross the blood-brain barrier. The central nervous system (CNS) response rate in BCBM patients was reported to improve from(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)
Fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) tyrosine kinases have been regarded as a target for cancer treatment, and there is much interest in inhibiting FGF/FGFR signaling by small molecules as a therapeutic approach to cancer. Generally, inhibitors mimics ATP structure and block the binding between ATP and FGFR kinase. Here, two novel, non-ATP-competitive,(More)
The modulation of pro-inflammatory cytokines provides a target for controlling inflammatory diseases and attracts much attention in current anti-inflammatory drug development. Here, four series of thiazolidinone derivatives were synthesized and screened for anti-inflammatory activities. A majority of these compounds showed excellent inhibition on the(More)
A novel nanocomposite film of tyrosinase-chitosan-carbon-coated nickel nanoparticles (CNi) had been constructed for the detection of catechol. The tyrosinase-chitosan-CNi bionanocomposite film was characterized with scanning electron microscopic (SEM) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). In pH 6.5 phosphate buffer solutions (PBS), the biosensor(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)
