Primary lymphoma of bone (PLB) is a very rare neoplasm. Many aspects of this entity have not been well defined or reported in Chinese population. The purpose of our study is to identify the prognostic factors of PLB. Twenty-five patients newly diagnosed with PLB were included in this retrospective study. The main pathologic subtype of PLB was diffuse large(More)
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)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a highly heterogeneous reproductive system disorder of which the aetiology is not fully understood. Previous association studies have been conducted on >100 candidate genes, which principally related to reproductive hormones, cellular metabolism and chronic inflammation. Heritable tendencies have long been recognized for(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)
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)
Using a solid electrolyte to tune the carrier density in thin-film materials is an emerging technique that has potential applications in both basic and applied research. Until now, only materials containing small ions, such as protons and lithium ions, have been used to demonstrate the gating effect. Here, we report the study of a lab-synthesised(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)
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)
