Gastric cancer is the second after lung cause of cancer-related mortality in the world. Early detection and treatment can lead to a long survival time. Recently microarrays and next generation sequencing (NGS) have become very useful tools of comprehensive research into gastric cancer, facilitating the identification of treatment targets and personalized(More)
BACKGROUND Swine influenza is a highly contagious viral infection in pigs affecting the respiratory tract that can have significant economic impacts. Streptococcus suis serotype 2 is one of the most important post-weaning bacterial pathogens in swine causing different infections, including pneumonia. Both pathogens are important contributors to the porcine(More)
Streptococcus suis serotype 2 (SS2) is a zoonotic pathogen that is distributed throughout the world. Virulence factors and/or markers of the virulent serotype 2 strains have not been fully identified. In this study a simple, rapid, and non-destructive method was used to extract cell wall-associated proteins from SS2 strains. Two virulent strains were(More)
BACKGROUND Lymph node metastasis (LNM) is closely associated with poor prognosis in patients with resectable T2 stage gastric adenocarcinoma (RT2-GA). Preoperative blood neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been identified to be a very valuable predictor for prognosis in patients with diverse cancers. The aim of this investigation was to assess the(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is the most commonly used tumor marker for gastrointestinal cancers but its value for resectable gastric adenocarcinoma (RGA) patients in areas of high GA incidence is uncertain. METHODS We retrospectively studied 400 subjects with RGA from the Fujian Province in China, which has a high incidence of GA.(More)
The emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, especially tetracycline- and beta-lactam-resistant bacteria, poses a great threat to human health. The purpose of this study was to develop and apply a suitable gene microarray for the detection of antibiotic resistance genes. We isolated 463 strains of bacteria from a hospital, a veterinary station, an animal(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing evidence has demonstrated that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play essential roles in the occurrence and development of human cancers, including gastric cancer (GC). However, the functional and clinical significance of lncRNAs are still poorly understood. METHODS In this study, the expression of LncRNA HNF1A antisense RNA 1(More)
BACKGROUND Long noncoding RNAs (IncRNAs) have been demonstrated to be associated with human cancer. However, the clinical value of most lncRNAs to serve as the biomarkers for gastric cancer remains largely unknown. In this study, we examined the relationship between the expression levels of IncRNA, PCNA antisense RNA 1 (PCNA-AS1), and clinicopathological(More)
