Paragangliomas are neoplasms that arise from extra-adrenal chromaffin cells. Pancreatic paragangliomas are rare, and few are malignant. To the best of our knowledge, no cases of functional pancreatic paragangliomas have been reported in the literature to date. We present two cases of pancreatic paragangliomas with pathological confirmation. In the case 1,(More)
We investigated if elevated CO(2) could alleviate the negative effect of high temperature on fruit yield of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa Duch. cv. Toyonoka) at different levels of nitrogen and also tested the combined effects of CO(2), temperature and nitrogen on fruit quality of plants cultivated in controlled growth chambers. Results show that elevated(More)
BACKGROUND Using serum carbohydrate antigen 19-9 (CA 19-9) in discriminating between benign and malignant pancreatic disease remains controversial. We aim to evaluate the diagnostic value of serum CA 19-9 in predicting malignant pancreatic cystic lesions. METHODS Eligible studies were identified through searching MEDLINE and EMBASE prior to March 2016.(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of PIM-1 on the progression of pancreatic cancer remain unclear, and the prognostic value of PIM-1 levels in tissues is controversial. Additionally, the expression levels and clinical value of PIM-1 in plasma have not been reported. METHODS The effects of PIM-1 on biological behaviours were analysed. PIM-1 levels in tissues and(More)
This study aims to observe the expression of the HPV18E2 gene in cervical cancer and premalignant lesions and to investigate its clinical significance. The expression of the HPV18E2 gene in the cervical tissues obtained from 38 women with cervical lesions was detected using the RT-PCR method. The pathological changes were graded based on cervical(More)
