Th1, Th2, and Th17 Cytokine Involvement in Thyroid Associated Ophthalmopathy
To determine serum cytokine profiles in Graves' disease (GD) patients with or without active and inactive thyroid associated ophthalmopathy (TAO), we recruited 65 subjects: 10 GD only (without TAO),… Expand
Impact of incretin on early-phase insulin secretion and glucose excursion
This study investigated the impact of incretin on early-phase insulin secretion and glucose excursion. The normal glucose tolerance (NGT), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), and type 2 diabetes… Expand
Differential efficacy of methylcobalamin and alpha-lipoic acid treatment on symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
BACKGROUND Diabetic hyperglycemia damages peripheral nerves by triggering ischemia, oxidative stress, and inflammation. Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) and methylcobalamin (MC) are known to improve signs of… Expand
Aberrant expression of WWOX and its association with cancer stem cell biomarker expression.
BACKGROUND Nanog and CD133 are biomarkers of cancer stem cells (CSCs) that regulate cancer progression. The WW domain-containing oxidoreductase (WWOX) is a tumor suppressor protein that can inhibit… Expand
Effect of stroke volume variation combined with cardiac index and central venous pressure in guiding volume therapy in patients undergoing resection of gastrointestinal tumor
Objective To evaluate the effect of stroke volume variation (SVV) combined with cardiac index (CI) and central venous pressure (CVP) in guiding volume therapy in patients undergoing resection of… Expand
Optimum ratio of medicine dosage for dexmedetomidine mixed with oxycodone used for PCIA after gastrointestinal surgery
Objective To investigate the optimum ratio of medicine dosage for dexmedetomidine mixed with oxycodone used for patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA) after gastrointestinal surgery. … Expand
Overexpression of NCAPG inhibits cardia adenocarcinoma apoptosis and promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition through the Wnt / β-catenin signaling pathway.
BACKGROUND Cardia adenocarcinoma (CA) is a distinct form of gastric cancer, and the optimal means of treating it remains controversial. At present, the role of the condensation complex gene non-SMC… Expand
