This study was conducted to analyze the expression of the ubiquitin-specific protease Usp28 and assess its clinical significance in human bladder cancer. mRNA and protein expression levels of Usp28 were determined by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Western blot in 24 paired bladder cancers and the adjacent non-cancerous tissues. In addition,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The GSTM1, GSTT1 and GSTP1 polymorphisms might be involved in inactivation of procarcinogens that contribute to the genesis and progression of cancers. However, studies investigating the association between GSTM1, GSTT1 or GSTP1 polymorphisms and prostate cancer (PCa) risk report conflicting results, therefore, we conducted a(More)
The significance of irradiated normal brain volume in glioma recurrence is usually ignored by radiotherapists. The whole-brain irradiation (WBI) of 15 Gy in three fractions was delivered to C57BL/6 mice before implantation of GL261 glioma cells. The changes in vascular endothelial growth (VEGF) and stromal cell-derived factor 1α (SDF-1α) after WBI were(More)
This high-tech "teleacupuncture study" describes a neurovegetative ear acupressure effect in patients with chronic insomnia by using heart rate variability analysis. Heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV) measurements in 31 patients (mean age ± SD: 54.3 ± 10.6 years) were performed under standardized conditions in Harbin, China, and the data(More)
