Interleukin-9 (IL-9) is more functionally diverse than previously expected, especially with regards to lymphomagenesis. However, the relationship between IL-9 and the clinicopathological features of extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma is less well established. Patients with this lymphoma in Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer Center between January 2003 and March 2013(More)
Optimal management and outcome of primary gastric lymphoma (PGL) have not been well defined in the rituximab era. This study aimed to analyze the clinical characteristics, prognostic factors, and roles of different treatment modalities in Chinese patients with PGL. The clinicopathological features of 83 Chinese patients with PGL were retrospectively(More)
Irrigation with polluted water from the upper Yellow River (YR) channel of Northwest China has resulted in agricultural soil being contaminated by heavy metals (HMs). This causes major concerns due to the potential health risk to the residents in this area. The present study aims to assess the efficiency of constructed wetland (CW) in reducing the heavy(More)
The present study examined the clinical significance of serum neuron-specific enolase (NSE) in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Serum NSE values were measured using a electrochemiluminescence assay in 106 patients and tissue NSE expression was examined using immunohistochemistry in 65 patients. Fifty-four percent of patients had a(More)
Human tuberculosis remains a huge global public health problem with an estimated 1/3rd of the population being infected. Defensins are antibacterial cationic peptides produced by a number of cell types, most notably neutrophil granulocytes and epithelial cells. All three defensin types (α-, β-, and θ-defensins) have antibacterial activities, mainly through(More)
A previous genome-wide association study of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) identified several susceptibility loci. TOX3 is the nearest gene to signal rs4784165. In the present study, all exons and exon-intron boundaries of TOX3 were amplified and sequenced in 200 Chinese women with PCOS. A 3-bp nucleotide deletion of CAG repeat and two known single(More)
In order to overcome some shortcomings of realizing image processing using traditional DSP programming, such as long development time, low efficiency, complex, not universal system, irregularities and other issues, this paper puts forward a solution of taking TMS320DM642's TI chip as the development platform and adopting RF5 (Reference Framework 5) to(More)
Comparative gene expression analysis by qRT-PCR is commonly used to detect differentially expressed genes in studies of PCOS pathology. Impaired GC function is strongly associated with PCOS pathogenesis, and a growing body of studies has been dedicated to identifying differentially expressed genes in GCs in PCOS patients and healthy women by qRT-PCR. It is(More)
This study aims to ascertain whether an association exists between hepatocyte nuclear factor 1 alpha (HNF1A) and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). One thousand one hundred thirty-eight PCOS and 1125 healthy control Han Chinese women were recruited from Reproductive Hospital Affiliated to Shandong University. Serum hormone, blood lipid level, and genomic DNA(More)
