Interleukin-17(IL-17)-producing T helper(Th)17 cells are considered as a new subset of cells critical to the development of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We aimed to investigate the distribution of Th17 cells, the expressions of Th17-related cytokines (IL-17, IL-21 and IL-22) and their association with disease activity in IBD patients. We collected(More)
Although aberrant microRNA (miRNA) expression has frequently been observed in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), its biological functions and targets remain largely unknown. Present study found that miR-19b was significantly downregulated in active Crohn's disease (CD). Using bioinformatics analysis, suppressor of cytokine signalling 3 (SOCS3), a(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the bacteriologic features of anterior ethmoidal biopsy specimens between chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyps (CRSNP-), chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps(CRSNP+) and control patients. METHOD The biopsy specimens obtained during the nasal endoscopic surgery were cultured for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. RESULT One(More)
