PURPOSE To examine subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT) in eyes with glaucoma, using enhanced depth imaging spectral domain optical coherence tomography. METHODS The population-based Beijing Eye Study 2011 included 3468 individuals with a mean age of 64.6 ± 9.8 years (range: 50-93 years). A detailed ophthalmic examination was performed including(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the axonal architecture of the optic nerve in patients with normal-pressure glaucoma and determine whether these parameters correlate with the disease severity. METHODS   Using magnetic resonance (MRI) imaging (1.5-Tesla unit) and diffusion tensor (DT) MRI, we measured the optic nerve diameter, optic chiasm height and lateral geniculate(More)
In recent years, CD133 has been identified as a cancer stem cell (CSC) marker in gliomas. Nevertheless, the clinical and prognostic value of CD133 in glioma patients remains controversial. Therefore, we conducted a systematic meta-analysis to evaluate the correlation of CD133 with World Health Organization (WHO) grade, age, gender, overall survival (OS),(More)
The transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) pathway plays a key role in oncogenesis of advanced cancers, involving the non-Smad and Smad pathways. Meanwhile, nucleolin on the cell surface has been also reported to affect activation of signaling pathways. However, the effect of cell surface nucleolin on TGF-β pathway in glioblastoma is not still understood.(More)

The chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) has been widely investigated in diagnosis and prognosis of gastric cancer (GC). However, the impact of CXCR4 on GC patients remains controversial; Here, we conducted a meta-analysis to obtain the precise role of CXCR4 in GC prognosis and clinicopathology. Thirteen published studies with a total of 1,936 patients were(More)
Glioma is the most common of brain tumors that greatly affects patient survival. In our precious study, Crk-like adapter protein (CrkL) was identified as a key regulator in glioblastoma development [1]. Here, we aimed to investigate the correlation of CrkL with patient prognosis as well as pathological indicators. Immunohistochemistry was available to(More)
PURPOSE To examine a potential association between snoring and glaucoma in a population-based setting. METHODS The population-based Beijing Eye Study 2011 included 3468 subjects with an age of 50+ years. The participants underwent a detailed ophthalmic examination. Glaucoma was determined according to the ophthalmoscopic appearance of the optic nerve(More)
