The transcription factor, Forkhead Box M1 (FoxM1), has a specific expression pattern during the cell cycle. It also plays an important role in cellular developmental pathways and in the maintenance of homeostasis between cell proliferation and apoptosis. However, the precise role and molecular mechanisms associated with FoxM1 in laryngeal squamous carcinoma(More)
BACKGROUND In our previous work, we constructed short hairpin RNA (shRNA) expression plasmids that targeted human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) messenger RNA, and we demonstrated that these vectors could inhibit the growth of cancer cells by 76.5% in vivo. In order to maximize the efficiency and versatility of the vector-based siRNA approach,(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the clinical outcomes of maximal medical therapy(MMT) and functional endoscopic sinus surgery+ maximal medical therapy (FESS+MMT) for moderate to severe chronic rhinosinusitis without nasal polyps (CRSsNP) in China, to provide clinical evidence for treatment recommendation. METHODS A prospective multicenter case control study(More)
BACKGROUND The worldwide prevalence of allergic rhinitis (AR) is increasing, whereas treatments for AR remain limited in effect. Therefore, a new type of effective drug is eagerly in demand. OBJECTIVE To create a hypoallergenic vaccine by forced ubiquitination. METHODS In the present study, we constructed a DNA vaccine coexpressing Der p 1 allergen and(More)
The cochlea can be protected from acoustic trauma by moderate-level sound exposure. It is suggested that olivocochlear system may play a significant role in this protection. This study was performed to investigate distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE) amplitudes changes and the efficiency of contralateral noise stimulation on DPOAE after(More)
Insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF-1R) is a cell membrane receptor with tyrosine kinase activity and plays important roles in cell transformation, tumor growth, tumor invasion, and metastasis. Picropodophyllin (PPP) is a selective IGF-1R inhibitor and shows promising antitumor effects for several human cancers. However, its antitumor effects in(More)
Telomerase activation has very important implications for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), but the regulatory mechanisms of telomerase in HNSCC remain unclear. In our present study, we found that miR-512-5P was markedly downregulated in telomerase-positive HNSCC cell lines. Both in vitro and in vivo assays revealed that miR-512-5P mimic(More)
OBJECTIVE Analysis of the correlation between telomerase and the expression of its related proteins may provide insight into the molecular mechanism of nasopharyngeal carcinogenesis. We investigated the effect of short hair pin ribonucleic acid (RNA) specific for human telomerase reverse transcriptase messenger RNA on the expression of the proteins c-myc(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to investigate the features of voice changes in thyroid adenoma patients secondary to a unilateral thyroid lobectomy that did not result in laryngeal nerve injury. STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. METHODS Pre- and postoperative fiberlaryngoscopic and voice acoustic analyses were performed on 32 adult patients(More)
Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is a heterogeneous disease, with varying immunological and histopathological features. The CC chemokine ligand 19 (CCL19) can stimulate T cells and antigen-presenting cells into secondary lymphoid node formation, as observed in allergic rhinitis, inflammatory bowel disease and other inflammatory disorders. The purpose of this(More)
