BACKGROUND Chromodomain helicase/ATPase DNA binding protein 1-like gene (CHD1L) is involved in malignancies. However, the role of CHD1L in gastric cancer (GC) has not been elucidated. The aim of this study is to explore the clinical role of CHD1L in GC. METHODS The gene and protein expression levels of CHD1L were detected by quantitative real-time PCR and(More)
SARS-CoV (the SARS-Associated Coronavirus) was reported as a novel virus member in the coronavirus family, which was the cause of severe acute respiratory syndrome. Coronavirus replication occurs through a unique mechanism employing Leader sequence in the transcripts when initiating transcription from the genome. Therefore, we cloned the Leader sequence(More)
Studies of arterialized capillary blood gases and acid-base values were performed on 712 normal persons who were between the ages of 29 days and 24 years. The results were divided for clinical use into six groups by age; linear regression lines were constructed for better understanding of the development of blood gas levels and the acid-base balance. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the clinical features and early definite diagnosis of endobronchial tuberculosis(EBTB). METHODS Clinical symptoms, chest X-ray/CT manifestations and fiberoptic bronchoscopic findings of 90 cases with EBTB were analyzed. RESULTS Main symptoms were as follows: cough in 75 cases, fever in 27, haemoptysis in 24, pleural pain in 18,(More)
Since 1983, we have been conducting inhibitory therapy for precancerous lesions of the esophagus in two regions of Henan Province considered high-risk areas of esophageal carcinoma. Our goal was to effect a 50% reduction in the canceration rate of marked esophageal dysplasia. By means of a cytological survey, 2531 cases of marked esophageal dysplasia and(More)
OBJECTIVE To understand the interaction between surfactant proteins and pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP), and the impact of corticosteriods on surfactant proteins. METHODS We established rat models of PCP and bacterial pneumonia induced by subcutaneous injection of 25 mg cortisone acetate. At 8-12 wk, the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of rats(More)
Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky), has recently (since 1996) established in limited infestations near several cities in the United States. A. glabripennis was probably introduced into the United States with solid wood packing or dunnage. During 2001, we evaluated the current APHIS Schedule T404-b-1-1 for methyl bromide (MeBr) fumigation. Fumigations(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between the burden of Pneumocystis carinii (P. carinii) and the inflammatory reaction and biochemical markers in bronchoalveolar lavage fluids (BALF) in a rat model of P. carinii pneumonia (PCP). METHODS Clean grade 50 male Sprague-Dawley rats were immunosuppressed by a subcutaneous injection of 25 mg cortisone acetate(More)
OBJECTIVE To ascertain the relationship between the Ala54Thr variation of FABP2 gene and general as well as regional adipose tissue depots. SUBJECTS 165 subjects, in which 86 were subjects with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) [age 54.45+/-9.80, male/female 1.05, body mass index (BMI) 26.48+/-4.01] and 79 were subjects with non-insulin-dependent diabetes(More)
