The purpose of this study was to examine whether combined cisplatin and late course accelerated fractionation radiotherapy (LCAH) (the combined group) can confer a better outcome over LCAH alone in treating esophageal carcinoma. Eighty-one eligible patients were randomly entered into two groups: the LCAH alone group, and the combined group. There was a(More)
A sand culture experiment was conducted to study the salt tolerance of 13 cotton cultivars at their germinating and seedling stages under the stress of different concentration NaCl, and a cluster analysis was made on the salt tolerance, according to the subjection values of salt toxicity coefficients of multi-indices and the sum subjection value. It was(More)
BACKGROUND Ultrasound can be used for the diagnosis of elbow injuries in infants and toddlers. However, ultrasound is highly operator-dependent and accurate ultrasound examinations require a complete understanding of the complex anatomy of the elbow joint. PURPOSE To report the normal ultrasound anatomy of the elbow, particularly of the humeroulnar joint,(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Concurrent chemoradiotherapy is a standard treatment for local advanced esophageal cancer in overseas countries; however, the treatment outcomes are various in China. This study was to evaluate the efficacy of concurrent chemoradiotherapy with cisplatin plus 5-fluorouracil (PF) regimen on esophageal cancer, and observe the adverse(More)
A pot experiment was conducted to study the effects of applying 0, 240, and 480 kg N x hm(-2) on the cotton leaf antioxidant enzyme activities and endogenous hormone contents under eight days waterlogging at flowering and boll-forming stage. Under this short-term waterlogging, the leaf soluble protein content and SOD and CAT activities decreased while the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Research has confirmed that transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) is one of the cytokines related to radiation pneumonitis. But the level of TGF-beta1 in serum needed to predict radiation pneumonitis is still not clear. This study assessed the value of TGF-beta1 in both serum and induced sputum in predicting radiation(More)
PURPOSE To compare and analyze the effect of different clinical target volumes (CTVs) on survival rate after postoperative radiotherapy (RT) for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). METHODS AND MATERIALS We studied 102 patients who underwent postoperative RT after radical resection for esophageal SCC (T3/4 or N1). The radiation dose was > or =50 Gy.(More)
We defined the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) of chemoradiotherapy (cisplatin (CDDP) with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and concurrent chemoradiotherapy) for Chinese patients with esophageal cancer. Twenty-one previously untreated patients with primary esophageal cancer were entered into this study. Escalating doses of CDDP with 5-FU were administered in a modified(More)
With pot culture, the physiological responses of cotton plant to fertilizer nitrogen at flowering and boll-forming stages were studied under soil drought and after re-watering. The results showed that under soil drought, the net photosynthetic rate (Pn) and transpiration rate (Tr) declined rapidly with decreasing soil relative water content (SRWC). At the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Many patterns of treatment have been used to treat esophageal carcinoma in the past years, however, an optimal treatment is still the key issue to be explored. Therefore, we analyzed the published literature about radiotherapy for esophageal cancer in recent 15 years in China, and observed the survival rate, local control rate,(More)
