OBJECTIVE The present study employed 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine (5-Aza-CdR) to treat non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell line A549 to investigate the effects on proliferation and expression of the TFPI-2 gene. METHODS Proliferation was assessed by MTT assay after A549 cells were treated with 0, 1, 5, 10 μmol/L 5-Aza-CdR, a specific demethylating agent,… (More)
BACKGROUND Aortoesophageal fistula (AEF) is a rare but usually fatal complication of a foreign body in the esophagus. Little effective therapy exists to cure an AEF induced by esophageal foreign body. This report describes the authors' 40 years of experience treating patients with AEF caused by a foreign body and compares different treatments of patients… (More)

An efficient mobility management scheme for hierarchical mobile IPv6 (EHMIPv6) is propose in this paper to reduce registration flows in the network. In EHMIPv6, we use primary MAP to process mobile node's regional registrations, and assistant MAP to deliver data packets for mobile node, respectively. And the primary MAP is usually chosen from the MAPs with… (More)
Molecules of a thiol-functionalized phenylacetylene derivative were assembled on the CdS nanorod surface and copolymerized with phenylacetylene, affording an inorganic semiconductor-conjugated polymer hybrid with excellent solubility and high photoconductivity.
OBJECTIVE Ventricular septal defects resulting from post-traumatic cardiac injury are very rare. Percutaneous closure has emerged as a method for treating this disorder. We wish to report our experience in three patients who underwent percutaneous closure of a post-traumatic ventricular septal defect with a patent ductus arteriosus occluder. METHODS We… (More)
Although invasive thymoma commonly infiltrates neighbouring mediastinal structures, its extension into the superior vena cava (SVC) and consequent SVC occlusion are rare. In such cases, the urgent removal of the thymoma and radical resection of the infiltrated SVC representreasonable options, since induction therapy is time-consuming and useless for symptom… (More)
