BACKGROUND The Gamma-glutamyl carboxylase (GGCX) gene, as with Vitamin K Epoxide Reductase Complex Subunit 1 (VKORC1), CytochromeP450 Complex Subunit 14 F2 (CYP4F2) and CytochromeP450 Complex Subunit2C9 (CYP2C9), is a candidate predictor for appropriate maintenance warfarin dose. However, the association between GGCX gene polymorphisms and warfarin dose(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies regarding visfatin levels in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) showed conflicting results. To evaluate the visfatin levels in PCOS, a meta-analysis was performed. METHODS A comprehensive literature search of eligible studies in Embase, Pubmed and the Cochrane Library was undertaken through November 2014. Standardized(More)
Previous studies proved that interferon gamma (IFN-γ) gene polymorphisms were associated with the risk of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. However, the association between IFN-γ polymorphisms and HBV-related liver cirrhosis (HBV-LC) risk is still unclear. IFN-γ +874 T/A and +2109G/A genotypes were determined in 126 HBV-LC patients, 129 chronic hepatitis(More)
Deregulation of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) expression has been proven to be involved in the development and progression of cancer. However, expression pattern and prognostic value of lncRNAs in breast cancer recurrence remain unclear. Here, we analyzed lncRNA expression profiles of breast cancer patients who did or did not develop recurrence by(More)
PROBLEM This systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to synthesize and assess the correlation between the interleukin-10 (IL-10)-1082A/G polymorphism and idiopathic recurrent miscarriage (IRM) using relevant studies. METHOD OF STUDY Five electronic databases (Cochrane Library of Systematic Reviews, PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, and Google Scholar)(More)
BACKGROUND Mild solubilization of inclusion bodies has attracted attention in recent days, with an objective to preserve the existing native-like secondary structure of proteins, reduce protein aggregation during refolding and recovering high amount of bioactive proteins from inclusion bodies. RESULTS Here we presented an efficient method for mild(More)
BACKGROUND Interferon gamma (IFN-γ) is a key regulatory cytokine, which plays an important role in antiviral defense of an infected host. However, the association between the IFN-γ +874T/A gene polymorphism and hepatitis virus-related diseases is heterogeneous. METHODS Based on the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses(More)
This study reports an experimental realization of non-local classical optical correlation from the Bell's measurement used in tests of quantum non-locality. Based on such a classical Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen optical correlation, a classical analogy has been implemented to the true meaning of quantum teleportation. In the experimental teleportation protocol,(More)
Abnormal proliferation is one characteristic of cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs), which play a key role in tumorigenesis and tumor progression. Oxidative stress (OS) is the root cause of CAFs abnormal proliferation. ATM (ataxia-telangiectasia mutated protein kinase), an important redox sensor, is involved in DNA damage response and cellular homeostasis.(More)
PURPOSE Other studies have shown that levels of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in breast ductal secretions (BDS) differ significantly between breast cancer (BC) patients and healthy individuals, providing direct evidence for CEA in BDS as a promising biomarker for BC. This meta-analysis was designed to assess the potential diagnostic value of CEA in BDS. (More)
