Centromere protein F (CENP-F), a cell cycle-regulated centromere protein, has been shown to affect numerous tumorigenic processes. This study aimed to clarify the prognostic significance of CENP-F expression in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). The levels of CENP-F messenger RNA and protein were higher in ESCC cell lines than in the(More)
Sixty-four patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma were treated by various combinations of external irradiation with intracavitary radiotherapy using the high dose rate afterloading technique. The afterloading intracavitary radiation (AIR) was given as a routine boost or for residual or recurrent disease. The external irradiation dose varied from 45 to 70(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to examine the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms of interleukin (IL)-8 (rs4073 and rs2227306) and IL-10 (rs1800871 and rs1800872) genes, and clinical effects of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) and subsequent prognosis in patients with liver cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS 115 patients with liver(More)
A numerical wind tunnel model was proposed. The computed results of the pollutant diffusion around a typical Hong Kong high-rise building model (at a linear scale of 1:30), were found to show a similar trend to the outcomes of self-conducted experimental measurements that the pathways of pollutant migration for windward and leeward pollutant emission are(More)
OBJECTIVE The study aims to compare the effects of urethane and ketamine anesthesia on kindling-induced after discharges (AD). MATERIALS AND METHODS We divided forty 4-6 week old female C57BL/6J mice into two groups: one group was anesthetized with urethane (n = 20) and the other with ketamine (n = 20). Kindling was with an electrical stimulation (ES)(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of atosiban in treating women with threatened preterm labor who had become pregnant through assisted reproductive technology (ART) and the corresponding pregnancy outcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy pregnant women with threatened preterm labor after ART were randomly divided into two(More)
