Early detection of tumors can significantly improve the outcome of tumor treatment. One of the most frequently asked questions in cancer imaging is how many cells can be detected non-invasively in a live animal. Although many factors limit such detection, increasing the light emission from cells is one of the most effective ways of overcoming these… (More)
Keywords Carbohydrate antigen 19-9. Hepatocellular carcinoma. Overall survival To the Editor: Carbohydrate antigen (CA) 19-9 is the most widely used bio-marker for diagnosing pancreatic cancer, and pretreatment serum levels correlate with overall survival of patients . Serum levels of CA 19-9 have also been proved to be associated with prognosis in… (More)
The APOA5 rs662799 polymorphism has been widely reported regarding its associations with the plasma lipid levels and the occurrence of coronary heart disease (CHD), whereas its relationship with the severity of CHD has not yet been explored. Four hundred and seventy-eight angiografically defined subjects (325 CHD patients and 153 CHD-free controls) were… (More)
Lipoprotein ratios have been shown to be associated with the occurrence of coronary heart disease (CHD), but little is known about their relationships with the severity of CHD. A total of 792 angiographically defined CHD patients were enrolled following their admission. Patients were stratified into three groups based on the tertile of the Gensini scores… (More)
To compare the efficacy of simo decoction (SMD) combined with acupuncture at the tsusanli acupoint or chewing gum alone for treating postoperative ileus in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after hepatectomy.In postoperative ileus, a frequent complication following hepatectomy, bowel function recovery is delayed, which increases length of… (More)
Use of a base-free Pd(DMSO)(2)(TFA)(2) catalyst system enables the synthesis of six-membered nitrogen heterocycles via a Wacker-type aerobic oxidative cyclization of alkenes bearing tethered sulfonamides. Various heterocycles, including morpholines, piperidines, piperazines, and piperazinones, are accessible by this method.
Electron-rich aromatic C-H bonds undergo regioselective chlorination and bromination in the presence of CuX(2), LiX (X = Cl, Br) and molecular oxygen. Preliminary mechanistic insights suggest that the bromination and chlorination reactions proceed by different pathways.
