The expansion of myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) and its correlation with advanced disease stage have been shown in solid cancers. Here, we investigated the functional features and clinical significance of MDSCs in extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma (ENKL). A higher percentage of circulating HLA-DR(-)CD33(+)CD11b(+) MDSCs was observed in ENKL patients(More)
Ubiquitination is crucial for cellular processes, such as protein degradation, apoptosis, autophagy, and cell cycle progression. Dysregulation of the ubiquitination network accounts for the development of numerous diseases, including cancer. Thus, targeting ubiquitination is a promising strategy in cancer therapy. Both apoptosis and autophagy are involved(More)
In this video demonstration, we present a remote interaction user interface prototype -- Pointer Wizard, to provide mixed reality experience with intuitive interaction afar. By identifying finger gestures and voice commands, it allows users to interact with appliances remotely, without the need of close proximity or even physical contact. It also brings(More)
Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma (NPC) patients' end-of-treatment survival status has drawn more attention in recent years. Telephone follow-up, as a most operative approach among all the clinical follow-ups, is an effective means to extend medical service to patients' home and is thus widely used in clinical practice. This study aimed to analyze the(More)
Recent advances in wireless communications, mobile connectivity, and cloud computing have paved a way for all the devices and applications of Internet of Things (IoT), within which information from all related perspectives is closely monitored and synchronized between physical facilities, such as transportation carriers and the cyber computational space.(More)
Histone modifications are proposed to constitute a "histone code" for epigenetic regulation of gene expression. However, recent studies demonstrate that histones have to be disassembled from chromatin during transcription. Recent evidence, though not conclusive, suggests that histones might be degradable after being removed from chromatin during(More)
Abrus cantoniensis is a common and popular vegetative food consumed as beverage, soup and folk medicine in the tropical and subtropical areas of Asia. It has been claimed valuable for cleansing toxicants in the liver. However, the functional effects of A. cantoniensis have not yet been scientifically explored. This study comprehensively evaluated the in(More)
