According to new hypotheses astrocytomas/gliomas either arise from or attract neural stem cells. Biological markers, particularly antigenic markers, have played a significant role for the characterization of these tumour stem cells (TSCc). Because these studies have been performed with single experimental samples mostly from gliomas, we investigated the(More)
Background Choroid plexus papillomas are rare tumors of the central nervous system and are usually confined to the ventricle system. We describe a choroid plexus papilloma located in the sella turcica that was identified pathologically. Case description A 49-year-old woman with a 5-year history of progressive visual deterioration in the left eye was(More)
The complete sequences of Cyt b gene from 20 individuals belonging to eight Chinese indigenous sheep breeds and one foreign breed were studied. The results showed that the hapolotype diversity of Chinese sheep breeds was 97.1%. The mean nucleotide composition of all the sequences was 27.1% T, 28.5% C, 31.4% A, and 13.0% G. The nucleotide diversity was(More)
Epithelial growth factor (EGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), and their receptors, epithelial growth factor receptor (EGFR) and bFGF receptor (bFGFR), are frequently overexpressed in high-grade gliomas. In the present study, the EGF and bFGF levels in U251 glioblastoma cell culture supernatants were determined by ELISA, and enhanced green(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the curative effect of traditional craniotomy and mini-invasive operation on basal ganglion hemorrhage, and analyze influencing factors related to the differences. METHODS Fifty-five cases with basal ganglion hemorrhage according with the enrollment criterion of standardized treatment of hemorrhagic stroke were analyzed. Twenty-eight(More)
Primary melanocytic tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) are rare lesions, but primary sellar tumors are rarer. Only 10 cases have been reported, and they are often misdiagnosed as pituitary macroadenoma. We report the case of a 54-year-old Chinese man who developed progressive bitemporal hemianopsia and visual loss. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)(More)
Inflammatory response played an important role in the progression of spinal cord injury (SCI). Several miRNAs were associated with the pathology of SCI. However, the molecular mechanism of miRNA involving in inflammatory response in acute SCI (ASCI) was poorly understood. Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats were divided into 2 groups: control group (n=6) and acute SCI(More)
Ectopic pituitary adenomas (EPAs) are rare, and the suprasellar cistern seems to be the most common location. At this time, no detailed original classification, diagnosis, or treatment protocols for suprasellar pituitary adenomas (SPAs) have been described. A 19-year-old man showed visual disturbances and lack of libido for 3 years, he suffered a sharp(More)
