Osteosarcoma is characterized by a high malignant and metastatic potential. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a multifunctional cytokine that is associated with the disease status and outcomes of cancers. However, the effect of IL-6 on migration activity in human osteosarcoma cells is mostly unknown. Here we found that IL-6 increased the migration and expression of(More)
BACKGROUND Chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2), also known as monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), belongs to the CC chemokine family that is associated with the disease status and outcomes of osteoarthritis (OA). Here, we investigated the intracellular signaling pathways involved in CCL2-induced vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) expression in human(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most frequent bone tumor, characterized by a high metastatic potential. However, the crosstalk between chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 3 (CCL3), which facilitates tumor progression and metastasis. Vascular endothelial growth factor-A (VEGF-A), an angiogenesis inducer and a highly specific mitogen for endothelial cells, has not been well(More)
sions should be considered hypothesis generating, rather than conclusive evidence of the comparative safety and efficacy of aspirin for use in VTE prophylactic regimens after TKA. However, our results, along with results from other observational studies, provide justification for future trials of multimodal VTE prophylactic strategies involving aspirin and(More)
Congenital pancreatic cyst is very rare. Antenatal detection can potentially decrease the neonatal morbidity because the appropriate preparation can be made in advance of delivery. We report a case of congenital pancreatic cyst detected prenatally by routine obstetric sonography in a fetus at 33 weeks' gestation. The cyst, located at the pancreatic tail,(More)
