The relationship of gastric cancer to the presence of interleukin-8 (IL-8) 251 T/A has been reported with conflicting results. To further explore the association of IL-8 251 allele polymorphism with gastric cancer susceptibility. We performed an extensive search of relevant studies and carried out a meta-analysis, including ten studies with 2,195 gastric(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the contribution of sodium orthovanadate (SOV)-induced phosphatase inhibition to the activation of rat retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells. METHODS Confluent cultures of rat RPE cells were treated with the general phosphatase inhibitor SOV. The effects of SOV on the cell cycle were determined by flow(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, artificial neural network is advocated in modeling complex multivariable relationships due to its ability of fault tolerance; while decision tree of data mining technique was recommended because of its richness of classification arithmetic rules and appeal of visibility. The aim of our research was to compare the performance of(More)
OBJECTIVE To research the Mn(2+) toxicity in vivo rabbit retina. Mn(2+) is used as a tracer in MRI. METHODS It was an experimental study. Sixty pigmented rabbits (120 eyes) were divided into 5 groups randomly. Manganese chloride solution 25 µl of 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 mmol/L were injected intravitreally in one eye of each rabbit respectively as 5(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of the study was to delineate clinical characteristics, surgical interventions, anatomic and visual outcomes of ruptured eye balls after trauma, and establish the prognostic indicators, which can assist clinicians in making correct surgical decisions during globe exploration for ruptured eyes. DESIGN The study design used was a(More)
In this case series of 74 patients with coexisting vitreoretinal injury and severe corneal opacification, after temporary keratoprosthesis (TKP) assisted pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), an allograft corneal transplant was not performed at the same time; instead, the patient's trephined corneal button was sutured back. One year after the surgery, if intraocular(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a new photochemical method of experimental retinal vein occlusion and investigate the morphologic and histologic changes in the retina. METHODS After intravenous injection of rose Bengal, the vessels next to the disc of miniature pigs in the experiment group (n = 15) were exposed to an endo-illuminator for 15 minutes. As a control(More)
OBJECTIVE To Investigate the effectiveness and complications of injection of tissue plasminogen activator into a retinal vein for treatment of retinal vein occlusion via micropuncture of the retinal vein. METHODS Thirty miniature pigs (one eye of each pig) were produced photodynamic thrombi of retinal vein by injecting Rose bengal (20 mg/kg) into the ear(More)
Axonal tracing is useful for detecting optic nerve injury and regeneration, but many commonly used methods cannot be used to observe axoplasmic flow and synaptic transmission in vivo. Manganese (Mn(2+))-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MEMRI) can be used for in vivo longitudinal tracing of the visual pathway. Here, we explored the dose response and time(More)
